    Usually, mic combinations are merged into one mono IR.

    By default, snapshots recall the bypass state of every block in the preset along with whatever parameter values you have assigned to controllers. There was a feature added in the 2.80 update called "Snapshot Bypass". It's a parameter that you set for every block. It's set to On by default. It determines whether or not a block's bypass state will be recalled by snapshots. It sounds like for those four effect you're talking about, you'd want to have that set to Off. To get to it on the unit, hit the Action button, and you'll see the Snapshot Bypass parameter. This, of course, also means those blocks won't be affected by your snapshot selection at all (unless you have some of their parameters tied to controllers.).

    IR's are simply snapshots of mic positions /distances / angles / of different speakers using different mics, etc. You purchased OH, which is a thoroughly professional company that provides all the snapshots or choices one would need for finding a "mic'd speaker cab" for the particular application you are doing right now. For those that know, carry on. For those that are overwhelmed, stick to the folders that are pre-mixed etc, until you gain an understanding of WHY there are a million choices. I prefer companies that offer the gamete of positions / mics / mixes etc. TO me, they understand the IR business the best. It seems the majority of users talk about what IR to use live, but I think the studio environment is where all of the options are required and geared towards initially. this rabbit hole is a big one, its a good one though, make sure you pack a lunch too.

    I am experiencing a recording offset with Logic Pro X, too. I am sending a DI track (sine wave, in this case) to USB 3/4 of the Helix and record USB 1/2 to a new audio track (empty preset). This is the re-amplification method according to the Helix manual. As you can see in the screenshot, there is a negative offset in the re-amped track. Through adjusting the Logic recording offset settings in the audio preferences by trial and error, I determined the offset to be -28 samples.

    It's very helpful to put a looper block first in the chain. record a phrase then audition IRs with different amps while it plays back. Focusing on the sound rather than playing is great however part of the thing is how it feels as well. You'll probably find that real world amp/speaker/mic combinations work best. Start there, a random search could be endless. I have bought way too many IRs since getting the Helix... Seems I always end up liking Ownhammer best. Especially the latest releases. Some Celestion IRs really good as well. In this business over 50 years I can truly say we have it good these days...
