    The prices on any product are always going to be at the mercy of exchange rates I'm afraid. 

    As far as amp models being put into HX. Thats not going to happen. Promise. There are a bunch of reasons but ultimately, sorry but no. 
    Boo!  I almost ordered a HX hoping the rumors were true

    Of course...that doesn't rule out the possibility of a new product, probably of similar size to the HX, which does include amp models. Perhaps...at the £500-600 price point?

    'cos if so...that'd be nobbling Headrush product releases twice in a row. Just sayin' ;)
    Hurrah!

  • Some sort of HX level next gen Variax would be cool

    wireless plugin for between rack and controller!

    HX can be charged up in microwave and doesn't need the PSU!

    Expression pedal can be used to change LED colours on stomps!

    Tuner screen replaced with scrolling Pro/Anti Brexit/trump slogans, dependant on your opinion.

    Helix native now cost more depending how many HX units you have.

    Nah, HX Edit is the PC/Mac app.

  • Is anyone having any success connecting an Android phone for audio in to the USB? I have a zoom G3 which instantly recognises the phone and plays through the usb b to type c adapter. Trying the same on the Helix the phone doesn't even recognise it as an interface.

    It's because the G3 is a class-compliant audio device. The Helix isn't - it nearly is, but it's missing one critical function (it responds with nothing when the host device queries its sample rates). I've submitted it as a suggestion on the L6 Ideascale, but they haven't done anything as yet. Incidentally, that's all that's stopping it working on Linux, too.

    Maybe 2.7 will fix it?

    Ah right thats great, something I didnt know. I have one of these http://www.altoedge.com/usbaudio/amigo-ii.html If i use a type B adapter with it, do you reckon that would work as a basic interface? I've ordered an adaptor on the off chance it might work. 99p lost if it doesnt and it'll probably come in handy elsewhere.

    @chickenchaser - that'll work as an external audio device, but it won't work as a low-latency interface. You'd need a proper interface for that.

    @digitalscream that'll do me. I'll have a play about with it. Thanks!


    Additionally, i've just started playing with my Helix, and so i'm in the very early stages of seeing how it works and what I can do with it. If someone could point me in the direction of where to get some tips and tricks on getting the most out of it without reading the whole thread, that would be much appreciated!

    Plenty out there but see if this helps.

    • 2.70 is a major update from a development standpoint, but on paper, it's minor
    • 2.70 has no new models
    • 2.70 has only two things, both of which may be controversial
    • 2.70 will not be ready this week. Next week hopefully
    • 2.70 is not particularly related to the other news that is still happening this week

    Well, if you look at the HX Stomp videos, there's a totally different tuner in there.

    Given that they use the same framework for all units in the Helix family, it stands to reason that the rest of them will also get the updated tuner.

  • @neilg @rossyamaha thanks for the guidance, interesting to see some different approaches to building patches. I had initially just loaded up a patch with amp and pedals but it was good to learn how to use some of the post reverb ideas.

    Also looking at the stomp’s manual tempo sync via midi is coming too. Unless it’s already arrived in a previous update and I missed it?

    Have you tried putting the tuner in a different signal path?

    Type B-Type A converter arrived today. Tried it with that USB sound card and it didnt work. The sound card doesnt receive any power from the port to power it up

    Jumping into this in prep for buying the stomp probably but can helix do a decent transpose for drop tunings? What patch does this well?

    Hope I've posted this in the correct place!

    following the release of the helix stomp, I am considering either a stomp or just the fx unit. Primarily to get a 'Somewhere in time ' type sound, see link below 



    Would the stomp or the fx be the best option ?

    This would be going into a Boss Katana.

    cheers

    No is the short answer at the moment.  It has a pitch shifter block which is sort of just about ok-ish for single notes but truly awful with chords.  However the hints and rumours are that something vastly superior is in the works for a future release as Line 6 hired some pitch shifting gurus a while back.

    Line 6 have been on the Ball with their updates - would be surprised if they didn’t do this now the range has expanded so much
