  1. I recently discovered a couple of neat tricks using the DT25 and Helix. If you connect the Helix using L6 Link, the preamps are disabled on Channel A on the DT, but they are available on Channel B. Using DTedit via MIDI, you can disable the preamps on Channel B but you can still use the cab modeling. This allows you to toggle between Channel A with no cab modeling (essentially just the natural DT speaker with no added cab modeling) and Channel B with the DT cab modeling enabled. You can actually assign 4 different cab models to the 4 'voicing' slots on Channel B, but you have to manually switch between them via the DT front panel, as there's no access via Helix/L6 Link. Similarly, you can use the internal DT reverb on Channel B, and assign different reverbs to each of the 4 slots, even with the preamps disabled. This allows for greater DSP flexibility on the Helix in case you run into that particular limitation. So after that elaborate setup, here's the question: Where in the DT signal chain does the cab modeling live? I'm assuming it's after the power amp modeling, but that's not entirely clear. Thanks!
  2. I just picked up a DT25 and I've got a Helix LT connected via L6 Link. So far, so good. My question is, what do I gain/lose by going direct into the FX return versus the L6 Link, other than the power amp topologies and native reverb from the amp? Additionally, the internal amp models in DT25 have cab modeling baked in, which can apparently be disabled using DTedit. Is cab modeling automatically disabled when using L6 Link? How about on the FX return? Thanks!
