I should’ve taken the day off… Two more hours!
I am not suggesting a functional change to SEND/RETURN objects; simply a different manner by which they could be graphically represented, given that available screen real estate and potential clutter are two of the issues cited regarding the Stomp's block limitations.I think you are missing an important piece of functionality here. The big difference between split paths and fx loop paths is that fx loop paths have adjustable send/return levels per instance...
Bump of sadness.Mine was stuck on 50% for a really long time after displaying the expected error message. I gave up, closed the updater, rebooted Helix holding down footswitches 5+6 as suggested above, opened up the updater and it can’t locate the Helix.
What can I try next?
Yep,the new updater that I did the helix 2.80, but when hooked to the pc+, noted the existing fw in my unit and only showed the same as the highest available. L6 site the same.Are you sure you're running the latest updater? I updated the PC+ to 2.0 and it took a few minutes.
Make sure the Helix is connected via USB, make sure HX Edit is closed. Run the L6 Updater. Should detect your Helix and then provide you the option to download and install 2.80. Don't download firmware 2.80 straight from the L6 website, let the Updater download and install it.i'm having problems downloading the the update. I have the HXEdit and Updater installed. I get a bunch of jibberish when trying to download. I have the SmartScreen feature disabled in MS Edge. I have tried Chrome as well with no luck. I'm running Windows 10.
It sounds like you're trying to download the flash memory file and the browser is trying to open it. You don't need to download that file. You just need to run Line 6 Updater and follow the prompts. Make sure you read through this beforehand: https://line6.com/support/page/kb/effects-controllers/helix/helixhx-280-release-notes-r913/i'm having problems downloading the the update. I have the HXEdit and Updater installed. I get a bunch of jibberish when trying to download. I have the SmartScreen feature disabled in MS Edge. I have tried Chrome as well with no luck.

You can also right-click the installer package, choose Open With > Installer, and then it gives you the option to Open in the Security Warning Dialog. A little easier then turning off the protection.This is a tip for any Mac users running newer builds of the Catalina beta OS.
I have no choice due to my employment - others should really wait until release. If you do have it for whatever reason, you will find that the latest OS build (i think this is new as of an update yesterday) will not allow you to install any Line 6 applications that you download (hx edit, driver, updater, powercab edit, native, etc.). I do not know what Apple changed in this build specifically or why they did so, but Catalina has a ton of irritating but necessary new security “features”. I’m sure this philosophy is behind the change. Please note: the fix requires making a change to the application security settings on your Mac. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY POTENTIALLY NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES OF DOING THIS!!! The most likely risk would be that if you try to install something “fishy”, you may not get the pop-up blocking you from doing so. Most likely, you can revert these settings after the applications are installed. I personally won’t be bothering as I suspect this will become a recurring issue for my work.
Launch the Mac “Terminal” application and type the following (without quotes):
“sudo spctl --master-disable”
you will be forced to type your machine admin password.
once this is done, go to the preferences application and choose “Security & Privacy”
under “allow apps downloaded from”, select the new “anywhere” option
when finished you might want to change that back to the first or second option (whatever you were using prior to making the terminal change)
You should then be able to install any of the applications you downloaded.
