  • Can't imagine why you wouldn't be proud about that KP, that really is quite something, to say the least. Congrats to the lad, and I do wish him well with his endevours.

  • Could you post a picture of the boot polish please?

  • You make a persuasive case Nick, although like you, I might feel in the end that I wouldn't actually use it. Maybe I just prefer having a whole collection of different guitars, and doing things the old fashioned way, I don't know. I do wonder how go…
  • Thanks for the latest on The Helix. I've been on the line6 website a lot in the past few days but hadn't picked up on that. In fact I managed to upgrade to 2.30 just a couple of days ago. I couldn't do a backup since the HX editor for 2.30 wouldn…
  • An amazing bit of kit there, and an excellent quick demo - Line 6 should give you a job Nick, I'm sure you'd sell more than a few units for them.
  • The new Helix firmware update (2.50.0) was released yesterday - I got it installed on my own Helix LT this morning. The new reverbs seem very good indeed - I particularly like the "Glitz" and "Searchlights" ones, but need to play with things more to…

  • Just looked again, and I think I understand what is going on - this is a thread on the Line 6 website forum, started by someone at Line 6, to detail whatever the lastest update is. Whenever there is a new update, they just modify/edit the original p…
  • Weird with the date given, but it must be a strange error, and not sure how that could have happened. I am certain the announcement was just recently made, to tie in with the current big NAMM music industry show, and it definitely details new featur…
  • Afraid there is a limit Nicolas, a line that must not be crossed, and I'm right up against it...
  • I agree Megi. Lester, if it works, don’t break it so you have to fix it! Mike Stern is using the same setup he’s used for years on end, including a Yamaha SPX90. Dont let the marketing talk you out of what sounds good. Unless its a Helix This ad…
  • Thanks, Megi. I am still using my old and much-loved Boss ME-5 which I bought in the late '80s. It took me a while to really understand each pedal and how they worked in combinations. After about a year of having it I could hear a song on the radio …
  • Also just to add, but any patch can be stored as a file - which is what I was able to download from the 3rd party website having paid my money. Once you have the file on your computer, you can connect Helix to the computer via USB cable, open the He…
  • I have a novice question, because I don't have a Helix. What are getting when you buy a patch? Is it a (or many) new sounds that you could not have dialed in with your existing Helix or is it just a set of parameters that any Helix owner could dial …
  • Megi, is this enough reason for you to get a Ricky? I think the tone could have been a little warmer. But it’s close. That's great Nick, terrific stuff! I love the contrast between the last 2 clips, both with the same guitar. ("tone is in the fin…
  • Gosh that does sound ridiculously good! I’ve been reading the posts but don’t really have much to contribute, but have to admit that it sounds amazing. I’m one of those people who does enjoy manuals, editing and wot not, but I think those of you …
  • Must try the Cartographer amp also, sounds very much to my taste for nice clean sounds:
  • make sure you are using the latest firmware version on the Helix (currently 2.30 I think) as I understand they have continually improved the user friendly aspect. That's a good point... I'm still on 2.21 and have been putting off the upgrade becaus…
  • Silvershark's comments about the difficulties people find with gear like this, and their difficulties in getting to grips with the user manual, ring some very clear bells. I'm definitely one of those sorts of people! It's very depressing to find…
  • Reading Megi's recent posts about his experiences with the Helix LT re-fired the GAS in me to do what I'd been toying with in my head ever since it first came onto the market. I've had a Boss ME70 for the past four years and have grown increasingly…
  • Just an update on the Helix saga - have today ordered an Alto TS210 speaker, which should arrive tomorrow (£210 including next day delivery, Andertons, in case you're interested) - Lester's recommendation and also one from someone I can trust on the…
  • Lester - incredibly helpful, thank you, thank you, thank you! And that's a more favourable report than I was expecting, I was prepared for you to say it was no more than acceptable, but if it's beating a bass amp, that has to say something good. Th…
  • No problem Lester, and no need to apologise - but if your bassist can have a quick go and see if a decent sound can be got at reasonable volume, I'd be grateful. I have read that the TS212 is better for bass, and there's even a chap from Alto demoi…
  • Well, you're one of the proper old guard then, by the sounds of it Noise! You're very welcome anyhow, glad you've popped back - it's still a quietish place, but also a civilised corner of the web, so please do stick around.
  • Have you ever tried bass guitar through it? No I haven't but I will give it a go tomorrow and let you know. Very decent of you, thank you Lester - since the Helix has bass amp and cab models, plus effects for bass, it seems to make sense to me, if…
  • Have now tried the unit just straight into my humble Roland Cube 80XL amp on the clean channel (itself a Roland JC120 amp model) - and it sounds fabulous to my ears, even the patches using their own amp and cab models. Hard to see how some people do…
  • I really don't know how you find the time to post on here ... I find I spend all my time here reading Megi's posts! Great reading and congratulations on your purchase. If it helps, I use an Alto TS110, the TS210's predecessor, as the amp for my ele…
