Attempting to find HX Edit for Mac OS 10.9.5

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a HX Stomp unit and was wanting to download HX Edit. I see that the available version is for Mac OS 10.10. How can I get an older version?Thanks!

Hi sicular,

 

I’m not sure why, but you appear to be confused about this. HX Edit will work on your Mavericks system, it’s backwardly compatible.
 

HX Edit is tied to the Line 6 Firmware revision number, therefore if you install FW v2.82, then the HX Edit version must be the same number i.e. 2.82

 

When you check the compatible OS list for Mac, the first one is Mac OS X, the others are subsequent updates to the Mac operating systems.

 

Quote:

Compatible OS: Mac OS X, Mac OS Yosemite, Mac OS El Capitan, macOS Sierra, macOS High Sierra, macOS Mojave, macOS Catalina

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.

Also, after downloading and installing HX Edit v2.82 you should update the Helix device firmware to match. Your new Helix is likely running outdated firmware that is incompatible with HX Edit 2.82

@datacommando - Don't think I'm confused... I downloaded both v 2.82 and 2.7 and neither will install. I get an error message stating I need Mac OS 10.10 for either version to be installed.

O.K. Maybe it’s me that’s confused, but the simplest solution would be to update your Mac OS.

 I found this thread re your issue - check it for clues:

@datacommando Unfortunately, updating my OS is not a simple solution. I really need to find the last version of HX Edit that works with 10.9.5.

I appreciate the link but most of the respondents said to update the OS - not an option for me.

 

Thanks!

That simply doesn't exists for the HX STOMP.

 

The last compatible version (for Helix) with Maverick was Version 2.21- Released 5/2/17

 

But the HX Stomp started to be supported from Version 2.70 - Released 10/17/18

 

So you absolutely need to update your OS at least to Yosemite (10.10).

This OS X version allows you to install every HX Edit version released so far (Version 2.82 - Released 9/26/19)

Uh! That defeats the object of having a state of the art modern guitar processor.
 

Updates for Mac OSX are free, unless of course your Mac is so old that it cannot be updated beyond your present version. If that’s the case you really need to buy another computer that can speak to your HX Stomp.

 

I hate to say this but you really should have checked the minimum OS requirements before buying into the hardware unit. Maybe the place you bought it will give you a refund.
