LINE 6 DREAM RIG

Wth the release of Amplifi and currently Helix, namong which improves The Dream rig, could it be that we have actually come to the finish of the road? No problems if we have. I deserve to acquire whatever I need from my JTV, HD500 and also DT50, DT25 and L2M yet MAN.... just how cool would it be to get something that was totally and also specifically dedicated to taking the Dream Rig over the top!



The Dream Rig as we know it? Possibly. I deserve to check out L6 bringing out dedicated amp products for Helix, however if you"re offered on the totality "any type of amp, any type of result, any kind of guitar" concept the Variax is still relevant.

You watching: Line 6 dream rig

 

My rig is JTV 59-HD500-Stageresource which I love. When the POD dies I have to have the ability to swap it out for a Helix and obtain also even more enhanced tone with little bit or no hassle. If you have actually a DT amp Helix will certainly talk to the DT through a midi work-related approximately. Hopefully L6 will add DT compatibility to the Helix in FW updates.

 

It would certainly be a genuine shame to lose the Dream Rig concept. I have never before had actually such excellent tone through my FRFR Dream Rig. With Helix it must be also much better, I"m simply waiting for my POD to die. Trouble is mine"s been bullet proof, it"s even had actually a pint of beer spilled in it! Darn you Line 6! :angry:

These are fun blurbs and all however it sucks that no one in the understand, none of the beta testers, namong the employees, no one has anything to say. Nopoint to add, no understanding, NOTHING around the future of the DT series amp or the future support and future advance of The Dream Rig.

 

Aget, I am happy via what I acquired yet I prefer it so much that I would certainly welcome any type of future product that would certainly enhance my rig. Would be glad to pay great money for it as well!

 

In the suppose time, we deserve to continue putting liquids on our pods and feel good that it still functions. I would certainly like a new Pod HD1000 and a new DT50X amp. Until then, I"ll pour a Jamba Juice on my pod just to cheer as soon as it transforms on!

 

Fun Times!

well... the idearange vote is at 35 currently... which i think is a good showing...

http://fairtradeexpo.org.idearange.com/a/dtd/DT-amp-compatibility-for-Helix/726817-23508?submitted=1

 

my understanding is this.... kind of noticeable though...

 

idearange brought us the helix... AKA every little thing we wanted....

 

no reason to believe that it can not put this via too....

 

i perform think that some variation is possible, if they can show (via ideascale) that it"s preferred then they will likely gain the sources they need to make something take place...

both myself and DI have voted for this... I think that demonstprices the desire is tbelow...

I have actually an L3 not a DT however I just voted it up bereason I think the Dream Rig idea is so innovative it would be a real shame for it to fade right into obscurity. Line 6 press the limits and should continue to perform so.

What shape would certainly this take? As I understand also it (not having actually a DT) the signal is tapped from the Amp version, so you are perhaps thinking a "DT Poweramp + Speaker" block that incorpoprices the settings for the DT and paths to the L6 output?

 

Not that I have anypoint to carry out through it you understand also, just trying to visualize just how it would work, in the intend time I am just waiting for the Check to clear before I obtain the stagesource

Thanks for the IdeaScale link! Voted up.

 

Unless the L6 comes out via a DT form of amp (tubes through the configuration) the for the Helix, it might simply be time to relocate on if my dream rig developes a problem or I gain to suggest it doesn"t fit my needs (difficult to view that point). The Helix looks exceptional but that FRFR mechanism just absence somepoint the tubes include to it, to my ears anymethod.

Could not agree through you more! Though some civilization swear by it, it simply sounds anemic to me.

Votes at 49 now. Thanks to everyone who voted for it. If everyone heard the distinction in between DT amps vs. FRFR, tright here would be 500 votes. We"ll get tright here.

50! :) Great idea, and also totally feasible. The essential - at leastern for my knowledge - will certainly be to worry yourself with the Bogner side of the DT - you don"t really desire to use the fairtradeexpo.org percentage of the DT, because it"s "HD" era. I have actually a theory - which I still need to confirm - that the Mic design as MIDI configured on the DT in "standalone" mode is what ALWAYS feeds the DT XLR output. If anyone would certainly prefer to confirm, or refute that, please do!

 

And by ALWAYS, I intend, as soon as you have your HD500 L6Linked to the DT. In that case, the mic model as characterized in the HD500 patch does not element into the signal chain. Due to the fact that you are in "combo poweramp" or "stack poweramp" mode, there is no mic modeling coming from the HD, just the cab modeling is passed with. 

 

So, in concept, you must have the ability to perform some pretty exciting points through coordinating the HX amp / preamp models to simply the DT power / topology settings - independent from the HD amp / preamp models. 

I have actually discussed this before too, not obtaining any "official" response - you need to also have the ability to disable the DT cab and also mic modeling totally, by utilizing the MIDI to define "no amp model" on the DT. So once you are L6Linked - I use this now via my HD500x, for JTV acoustic models to bypass all HD preamp handling - you would certainly be sfinishing HX amp/preamp models to the DT, pass them with DT topology / Bogner power amp, but not with HD/DT cab or mic modeling. The XLR *in theory* need to still job-related - which can then be routed ago to Helix to run via IR"s or HX cab and mic model handling. *IN THEORY* all that renders feeling, however I discover with my more outlandish routing principles, that theory and also reality frequently execute not agree! :)

 

In truth, in another thcheck out wbelow I was asking someone to offer me the "IR 101" for people (choose me) who have actually zero functioning understanding of IR"s, there was an answer indicating this test must be sensibly possible without a Helix, given that the mass of the speculation revolves approximately exactly how the DT responds in odd situations. 

 

Something like this have to obtain close:

 

1.) usage DtEdit / MIDI editor to put up a channel on your DT to have actually no amp model, no cab version, no mic version.

2.) usage your HD500/500x,L6 linked to the DT

3.) erected the HD500 through a preamp design, and also no cab model

4.) run the XLR out from the DT to a soundcard, and also into some kind of IR software

 

You deserve to probably quickly confirm the speculation that the mic version as characterized on the DT in standalone mode is what feeds the DT XLR out - just use a normal patch, linked to the DT. Connect the MIDI to the DT, and also using the HD500/x, erected a looper riff, in the "pre" position (prior to the amp model). Record the XLR out from the DT. First, tweak the mic model settings in the HD500 patch. Then tweak the mic design settings onboard the DT utilizing the MIDI editor. 

 

I think you will uncover no readjust as soon as you tweak the HD mic model, and you will hear alters once you tweak the DT mic version using the MIDI editor.
