    Helix suddenly sounding terrible... :(

    Kind of - sold the Helix and moved to AX8....!

    Very noisy FX loops

    This is the reason I cannot use OD pedals in the external loops - the noise is horrific (even when using low levels on the pedals), and I couldn't do anything to fix it. And yes, it was set to instrument level.

    Video Demonstrating Problem with Panning on Splits in Helix

    OK, so let me try and understand this - my setup is using 2 TS210 FrFr speakers, and the patch simulates a wet-dry-wet setup by outputting to the 'center' XLR on path 1a directly after the IR block. It also splits, and half the signal is sent to path 2. Path 2a has a split in it as well, and I basically put the wet FX in this signal path (with the block before the split having 100% mix and always on), and I output hard left and hard right via the split block. So does this mean my center dry signal is 6dB louder than the wet signal?

    Guitar and Bass Guitar together

    I don't normally, but I have done at a couple of gigs. Use the AUX IN for the bass.
  5. How the hell did you manage to get the mic stand mount in there?? I've been looking for something similar for weeks, but can't find anything! Looks very, very neat - great job!

    Trying to replicate a rig...

    Thanks! I've got something close(ish) just using one amp model - https://imgur.com/gallery/zRLhu That's using the eq before the amp to simulate the Furman PQ3 he uses, with similar(ish) settings.

    Trying to replicate a rig...

    Playing around with it, and I'm running our of DSP.... it's not possible to have a dual-amp path 1, with a split to a dry output, and path 2a being wet with dual cabs.... Hmm, need to play around some more....

    Trying to replicate a rig...

    Hi all, I'm trying to replicate this rig: http://images.equipboard.com/uploads/source/image/9606/whitesnake_doug_aldrich_guitar_rig_2009.jpg?v=1424625771 One thing I thought about, is that in the Helix we typically have the amp block followed by a cab / IR block... but I'm wondering about having the cab or IR block as the last block in the signal path, kind of similar to how the rig in the link would work (looks like all FX are front of amp as well I think). Anyone tried it with cab at the end of the path? To me it would seem more like a natural thing, as the signal would hit the amp, then the 'FX loop' area in the helix between the amp and cab. ...or am I over-thinking this? :)

    Marshall Vintage Modern 2466...?

    Hi all, Quick question - I know the 2466 isn't in the Helix (yet...!), but I wondered if any of the higher-gain based amps are models of amps that are close (or based on) this particular Marshall...? I know they won't be exact, but just curious. Same thing for the Suhr 100 and Friedman stuff....!
  10. Hi all, Been playing around with my g70, and decided to check out the cable simulation. What does everyone normally set it to? I've found with it off, it seems to sound better through my Helix.... Also, how can I test it to check if the input gain setting matches the gain from a cable connection...?

    Line6 G70 -Should I...

    I've owned the G70 for about 2 years now I think - and the ONLY time I have ever had a drop-out in a gig is when I go for a walk outside the bar while playing a solo, and the walls are so thick they block the signal. I have played over 100 gigs with it - hopefully that gives you some idea that it DOES work, and it works very very well. I used to own a G30, and the G70 is MILES ahead of it - and it's very handy I can take an output from it into my talkbox directly as well. (PS. I'm also using it with a Helix, and it works flawlessly)

    Stereo or w/D/w with 2 FrFr speakers...?

    All just on-stage sound with the speakers behind me.
  13. Hi all, Looking for some advise on the setup I could run... I have the Helix and 2 FrFr speakers. Currently, I run a pseudo-W/D/W setup as follows: - Path 1a has all the pre-amp effects - After the cab/IR block, the chain splits: + 1a has 50% of the signal going to center XLR as the dry signal + 1b has 50% of the signal going to path 2 - Path 2 has all the wet FX set to 100% mix (all stereo) - Output to the XLR outs to provide a wet FX stereo effect Would you say this would be a better approach as opposed to a 'standard' stereo setup with no dry output? What would be the main benefits of each? Just curious to get people's thoughts and opinions on it all :)

    FX loops quality

    I found that when using any OD pedal in the FX loops, there was a LOT of extra noise in the signal...

    Improved 3sigma IRs

    I was about to add this as a new topic myself :) I tried them yesterday, and they do sound better to my ears - not sure how exactly, but a lot 'fuller'. I'm also using MixIR2 to mix 1a and 2b of all the cabs I've purchased form them, as to me it gives the best tone. Highly recommend it!
