    Lower input impedance causes guitar pickup loading and tone suck and is only really useful for fuzz pedals. Auto on Helix used to select 1M as default, which was best in my opinion, but it was changed to select the impedance of the modelled unit selected in the first block in the chain.

    Thank you !!! I’m thinking about getting one and only using it as a amp and cab sim with maybe a compressor.. I love my pedal board and effects sounds but need a quiet setup

    I agree too. Was getting some serious tone suck and set to 1 meg and it’s much better. Had to bump up the output volume too.

    Is the Stomp out in the U.K./EU? It says awaiting stock on every site. Any confirmed release date? Cheers.

    This may have been answered already, but I don’t see anything about it in the HX Stomp manual. Is there a way to change the speaker emulation or IRs in a Powercab Plus with the HX Stomp? With 6 blocks, I’m thinking the Powercab Plus would help out a lot by freeing up the block an IR would take. But I wouldn’t want to have to manually change the speaker emulation or IR when I changed to a different preset that sounds better with a different speaker.

    No. 1M was the default, auto never changed. And no, it's not just useful for fuzz pedals. Each model was designed to work w/ the proper input impedance. Yes, most of them will have 1M as default, but a lot of overdrive pedals have input impedances other than 1M. For example, to have the best representation of a Tube Screamer per design, if the Tube Screamer is first, you want the input impedance set to 230k.

    Here's a question. Since the loop connections effectively have a dual send and dual return (as they're stereo) would this mean the hardware technically allows for 2 mono loops?

    So with a firmware update, would it be possible to forgo the stereo feature of the loop and instead have 2 mono loop blocks? Being able to configure the loops to be used like this would be quite useful I would've thought (forgetting about the block limits for a second).

    I'm interested in this as well, as PC is what I'm leaning towards to use with Stomp

    Same here; since it utilizes an analogue connection, it may not be possible at all. A L6 Link could potentially help with that (to my understanding, at least), but that port is not available on the HX Stomp. Still, would love to see that implemented. Other than that, another home run for Line 6, IMHO.

    Yep, it allows for 2 mono loops right now. In my photo up above I was running the bottom row of stomp boxes with one loop and the top row with the other.

    From HX Stomp Manual: When selecting different presets,HX Stomp automatically transmits a MIDI Program Change message corresponding to the selected preset.

    From Powercab Manual: The Powercab 112 Plus active guitar speaker system responds to traditional MIDI Program Change messages from an external MIDI device (or from MIDI software via USB) and will recall presets 000-127 accordingly.

    So that means it can be done just by changing presets. I tried this with my REVV amp to switch MIDI channels and it worked just fine. It can't currently be done with snapshots but I can live with that.

    hopefully 2.7 brings the ability to choose which PC to send, rather than having to match the preset #s on both devices.

    Wait, what? So you can already control 2 loop blocks within the Stomp if you so choose?

    Yes sir. The following blocks can be inserted into your signal chain:
    • Send/Return
      • Mono
        • Send L
        • Send R
        • Return L
        • Return R
        • FX Loop L
        • FX Loop R
      • Stereo
        • Send L/R
        • Return L/R
        • FX Loop L/R
    This is how it's possible to run dual amps in 7 cable method too.
    I was running guitar in > FX Loop L > HX Placater amp > FX Loop R > HX cabinet > HX LA2A compressor > out to my PA. I had 5 pedals in FX Loop L and 4 in FX Loop R. It worked perfectly. The only accessory I needed was a TRS to dual 1/4" Female TS Y Cable for the FX Loop send output.

    Boss WL-20 would appear to be the best option; Line 6 G10 base wasn't supposed to be gigable hence the micro USB port - the Boss has built in 12 hour battery on both transmitter and receiver.

    Perhaps L6 could reconsider Wireless VDI now the costs are coming down

    Guys, has this been released in the EU yet?
