This section of the tutorials will provide information on the files and impulse response uploading procedures for Line 6 Helix hardware and software.
File Type Overview
Of the many accolades of the Helix platform, ease of use is certainly one of the primary bullet points. This is apparent in the straight forward and hassle free file format compatibility and file loading procedures for the system. All Helix family products accept wave audio (.wav) impulse response files directly, as well as their proprietary IR format (.hir) for products purchased from their online Marketplace web store.
If mixing IR's in the Helix signal chain via loading multiple cabinet blocks, make sure you have them on the same processor path (there are two in the UI, the top line, and the bottom line). If mixing IR's on separate processor paths, you run the very likely possibility of the computations not being made in the same cycle, thus one will happen before the other, and the time of flight will not be the same for the two cabinets, resulting in an out of phase state.
