Downloading as we speak. Hopefully it will resolve the constant patch updating on boot up.

I haven’t noticed a single issue with 2.8, but I’ll still update sometime this week.
Thanks for the heads up!

Did you do the factory preset update when you loaded 2.8?

Just read 2.81 has a different installer. Is that right?

You always need to download and install the HX Edit update first, which will update the installer. Then use the new Updater to update the hardware Helix. Trying to update the Helix hardware without updating HX Edit/Updater first will cause problems and wasted time.

Download and update the HX Editor
Connect your Helix to the computer and use Updater to update the Helix
If you want the new factory presets, restart while holding buttons 7 & 8, the bottom left buttons
Drivers are included in the first file for the new HX Editor

I haven't found any problems so far with 2.8, how important is this update?

I have many problems after 2.81.

No sound after changing presets.

Huge delay when changing presets.

Sometimes the knobs don't work:(

Go on the "other" forum where Line6 frequents and raise a ticket.

@KenG I found one issue to be the "Global Settings" of the joystick encoder. It has to be set to "Model" to make the joystick work properly. It´s better now, but still not perfect.

I´ll try a factory reset and reinstall of the update. If this doesn´t work, I´ll try your solution @KenG.

Thanks, I didn´t know Line 6 is active "there" :)
