    This update was a big one for me (Using Rack, Floor and Native)

    Helix Native - Finally got a tuner! The lack of one was driving me crazy for a long time. Always had to rely on a clip on tuner, or loading my DAWs tuner.

    Favorites/User Defaults - Big time saver for me. I have certain Amps, EQs/Comps dialed in, and its great to know that my "sound" will load right up each time (versus previously using copy/paste).

    Poly Pitch - Noticeable difference in my chord strums, compared to the Pitch Whammy I was using before.

    Acoustic Sim - I had an AC-2 for the longest time. Line 6 nailed it with this one. Originally was using 3 EQs to simulate. No need anymore! Using the Acoustic Sim in front of the Studio Tube Pre preamp makes the difference. May incorporate an Acoustic IR too.

    I'm a happy camper now!

    Oh yeah. I forgot about Native. Don’t hardly use it anymore, but I’ll still update it. I always split my signal and record a DI. If anything goes on that it’s always S-gear.

    Updated HxEdit on a win10 & older MBP without issues. Native & Helix Floor also updated with no problems. Won't have a chance to play with the new update until next week. Look forward to this!

    i was having problems with my Mac also. Bought a $400 Dell with Windows 10, pretty much just for my HX Effects and it takes editing and updates much better than my mac.
