    got update downloaded will dig in tomorrow, I have sadly neglected my Helix far too much but got the update done and uploaded all the A1 pick IR's from the OwnHammer heavy hitters 1 pack, so hopefully can unleash the beast now, switched roles at work so have a bit of time to live a little now! sorry to ramble.

    The HX Stomp is getting two more with 3.0, FX/LT/Floor/Rack are all staying the same.

    Ah bollocks!

    I really need that other one. Ah well

    I guess my plan of longterm buying the physical compressor and OD pedals Im using atm inside the HX effects, is the way to go because that will free up about 3 or so blocks.

    It will eventually be a glorified Delay, Reverb and Lofi guitar effect on my pedalboard haha

    Haha, crap. I jumped the gun redoing a couple of presets for this function, only to realize HX Stomp doesn't have the command center..!

    Ah well, guess I'm stuck with the TT-2 instead of an expression pedal. No biggie, some money saved : )

    I loaded the update and somehow lost a preset I'd saved right beforehand and all my levels dropped. Time to dig in and figure out what happened...

    Do I have to use the send on the side to run into my real amp/cab and direct. I tried for hours yesterday figuring it out. I split the signal before the IR and panned hard both sides at the split and the rejoin and the IR still affected my tone on the real amp side. I didn't use a stereo EQ at the end so maybe that's why. I wanna keep the send on the side for my real overdrive to have it on for heavy patches and out of the signal path for cleans. I just need a template patch argh.

    Did you reload the backup you made during the update?

    Not yet - haven't decided if it's worth potentially losing anything else. :lol:

    If you saved the patch right before you updated, and you followed the update instructions, your backup you made during the update should have your patch you're looking for, as well as resetting your global settings.

    Tuner bug is not a "known issue" and is definitely not fixed with 2.91 on my unit. Please excuse me while I go flip a table.

    IME Line 6 tuners have always been shit bug or no bug anyway.

    Nothing beats just a no nonsense dedicated tuner pedal on a board infront of you.
    One of the first things Im going to purchase will be a Korg Pitchblack.

    What is wrong with your tuner? After they added the fine and strobe modes mine works excellently even with my stupid-low tuned guitars.

    It registers inputs about ~5 seconds late, making it nearly useless. This only happened with 2.90 update, and there were a few other LT owners on the Helix forum with the same issue. I've been using the tuner without a problem for years until now.

    That's shitty. I'm always curious as to how some units are affected by stuff like this and others aren't. The only correlated one I've seen is that almost everyone that was having HX Edit connection issues was using a 8-10 year old Mac with the current OS installed, other than that it seems pretty random. I'm just gonna keep knocking on wood and having my fingers crossed. So far all the updates have gone smoothly for me.

    It was really garbage with the original tuner mode, couldn't tune below B without issues. Like it literally wouldn't pick up my low E on my eight string or the low A on my bassists bass. Since they added the Fine and Strobe Modes it picks up just fine, checked against an expensive Peterson Desktop strobe and it well within my tolerances for live performance.
