New Features

– Snapshot Support – Helix Native now supports up to eight snapshots per preset. A single snapshot can recall up to 64 parameters and 32 block bypass states.

– Drag block to clear — Click and drag a block out out of the signal flow view to clear it.

– Dragging an amp/effect block nudges neighboring blocks out of the way to allow insertion

– Dragging a split/join block reveals insertion points between amp/effect positions (basically the same as previous behavior)

– Split/join positions can be nudged from any direction at any point along path A

Improvements/Changes

– 12 of Helix’s 17 reverbs originally appeared in M-Class processors and Verbzilla. As such, they’ve been moved into the new “Legacy” subcategory within the Reverb category

– Helix’s tempo no longer responds to pressing TAP at tempo lower than 40.0 BPM (Beats Per Minute). This is to ensure that multiple fast tap entries are recognized properly, as previously, they could be seen as one really slow tap entry. You may still manually select a tempo all the way down to 20.0 BPM and your presets can still be saved with tempi down to 20.0 BPM

Bug Fixes

– If its Mid and Bass parameters are set to 0.0, the Cali IV Lead Amp/Amp+Cab model could sometimes exhibit a decrease in gain.

– The Tempo Host Sync would be lost when reloading a session – FIXED.

– Pro Tools: Latency Compensation broken when Helix Native plugin is bypassed – FIXED.

Known Issues

– Recalling an effect or instrument rack in Ableton Live with Helix Native instantiated can mute the track. Workaround: Uninstantiate and re-instantiate the plug-in.

– When using two 1024 IR’s in a preset, moving the upper IR block before or after a pre/post split block can change the sonic character of the IR block.

– The copy/paste clipboard may be cleared after closing and reopening Helix Native.
