    If you’ve struggled with the Helix tuner, this update couldn’t be further from what you said.

    I know I am on a diverse forum when I can read one person's post in the voice of Golem and another in the voice of SirMixALot

    True, but that was a struggle I never had. I've been struggling with The Man.

    A strobe tuner has been on the very top of my list of things I want from the Helix since I bought it, so I'm very excited about this update. I can finally stop using an external tuner with it!

    From what we know it's a tuner fix with an additional strobe mode.

    There also appears to be a pixel-by-pixel "floating needle" mode.

    There’s more than just the tuner there are a couple of things they mentioned
    And a behind the scenes update that is major
    So who knows maybe a sound change

    I'm hitting refresh to get HX Edit 2.70, so I can go down the IR rabbit hole with the Stomp. :D I am completely happy with the stock cabs, so why not jack everything up with IR's? :rotflmao

    Whoah, finally a good tuner on the Helix? I'd kill for a strobe tuner on it and I had no idea that was coming in a patch this soon. If it has literally nothing else except for that, I'll be happy. :D

    They're reducing the per-path block count to 6, in order to make HX Edit and Helix presets cross-compatible with HX Stomp.
