GK2 RMC TriplePlay Hardware should be in the wind to Software MIDI for Guitar

Recommended Posts

Is there any reason why Line6 can't add a MIDI software to convert the guitar audio on the HELIX?  There seems to be a few new G2MIDI software solutions on the market.  With all the features on the HELIX, this seems like a no brainer?  Would that be too much on the DSP?

This has come up before. The general opinion seems to be that, while more is better, we'd prfer to see more of what the Helix is designed to be - an amp and effects modeler.

But feel free to go to Ideascale, do a search BEFORE POSTING AS A NEW IDEA, Then vote for ALL the previously posted entries.

I'd be happy if they finally got around to improving the USB routing so you could use a Send/Return block to connect to your iPhone running MIDI Guitar 2 app!

You can route guitar audio from the Helix to a laptop running JamOrigin already.  Personally I think guitar-to-midi is a bit of a dead end - having owned a GR700/G707, GM70, GR50 an AX100 Mk II and a VG99, wave shaping of the guitar signal like in the SY300 or the VG99, or for that matter the EHX Mel/Synth pedals, is more than capable of producing pretty much all of the basic analogue synth sounds you might want.
