    Best method of setting patches levels to the same volume??

    You will still need to futz with levels even after you get them "perfect" with meters. I learned way back before I used Helix that my ears and my sound guys ears were way > than any meter.

    Exactly... There are musicians, and then there are measurebaters. Musicians listen to music, measurebaters look at numbers on a screen. The photo world has these people, too. They take ugly photographs but know all the measured specifications of all their lenses. Guys, you don't need the meters. Sorry you think you do. You don't. And if you use them for so-called "leveling", you will really get yourself in trouble in an actual live environment.

    You don't need this if you gain-stage properly. If you boost every block a few dB you can create problems eventually, but it's hard. Most of the "clipping" issues I hear about is from people forgetting that pesky "headroom" parameter in their delays or some such.

    Or you can worry less about measurements and just plug stuff in and see if it works and how it sounds. There's a LOT of headroom in Helix. If your boost pedal overloads the input, I would think that turning on the pad would do it. If your clean boost overloads the input with the pad on, GOOD LORD MAN, either get a different clean boost or turn it the **** down.

    This is possibly correct. This is not necessarily correct, however. If it's not a drastic difference in level, concentrate on other things.

    You are still attenuating the full signal, which is not necessarily the best practice for connecting to most FoH and recording equipment.

    They estimated by the end of spring and never said anything else... patience, children...

    I disagree strongly that this is even a factor, because I don't think Helix and Fractal compete like we fan boys think they do. Fractal is a very small company that makes a niche product that you can't buy in a store. Line 6 are now one of the biggest music technology companies going, and Helix is more of a mainstream product in that world.

    tbh, though, studio guys use parametric EQ for such things, not 30+ band graphics. I know that the EQ in Logic, for instance, is VERY powerful and is really all I would ever need in terms of bands.

    I think that is an insane amount of EQ that is better served by judiciously applying a few bands of parametric here and there. Too much use of an EQ like that would indeed make it very easy to make an artificial sterile sound. I assume this is for studio recording?

    I believe that 1. There will not be a "Helix 2". Not for at least a few years. The latest HX product is pretty new, and they are still able to add SO much. It was built to last WAY more than any other product they've ever made. 2. belly-aching and worrying about it is a bad reason to not buy something that WILL let you make music TODAY.
