Returning defective

I have problems with the amp switching and corrupted presets that freezes the unity. Line6 support don't help at all. It's a good peace of gear with a very poor suport. I'm looking forward to see if the new unity works as expected.

Too bad, noise in the lead channel

Thraxas79, 21.03.2018
The Helix HX was supposed to replace my complete first pedalboard (2x M5, Comp, NG, Boost, Wah,) and the handy format would make it ideal for carrying it back and forth between rehearsal room and home listening to the sound at home to tinker. Because in the room I play a H & K Tubemeister 36 and at home NEN pipe tube Tubeman2 also from H & K (since in about the same sound).

First of all, the software is downloaded directly from Line6 and set to 2.50. updated, which also works very easy.

For the operation, there is hardly anything to complain about, it's really fun to work with. The only thing that surprised me was the midi commands, with preset changes or snapshots you can send up to 6 "instant commands" via midi to switch amp or other effects to switchen. Great idea, sometimes you might even want to change in stomp mode only the channel from the amp or something, that works too. But here the programmers have come up with an Easter-Egg for Preset and Snapshots respectively the instant commands are the program change codes beginning with "0" and in the stomp mode with "1", ie once numbered from 0 to 127 and in the stomp mode from 1 to 128. Thus, the same instruction has an offset of 1 counter. It took a while until I found out ... what's up? Well, if you know it, you can handle it.

Now to my KO criterion, in the clean and crunch channel is still all the best, in the lead it starts already from about 30% gain clearly to rush, it does not matter whether in front of the amp, in the FX loop or with the 4 cables Method. This has nothing to do with the selected preset, even with a new, completely empty preset. Have also tried an expensive Hum Eliminator or Groundlift, nothing helped. Only when I put the helix in True Bypass, the noise was abruptly gone, in the Global settings also tested times as it is when I change it from True Bypass to DSP bypass, then the noise was back.

Since it is in the rehearsal room and at home on both amps the same problem, the helix is ??unfortunately not useful for me, possibly a H & K specific problem? maybe a Monday model? maybe some update fixes that, but I can not and do not want to rely on that, so it's back with a heavy heart, because otherwise it was actually my ideal of a multi-effect, but apparently not quite mature.

Conclusion: Operation first cream, super concept, is really fun to tinker sounds and to taste around. Unfortunately for me with significant noise in the lead channel that could not be fixed, and since the sound in all respects is the deciding factor, only well-intentioned 3 stars.
