  1. Thanks! Although it appears that neither of the two match that... Perhaps there's a lesson to be learned here. I'm 60% sure I know which one was the original so I'll return the other and try not to let it keep me up at night. Thanks again for your help and understanding!
  2. I ended up with an extra IEC power cable last time I played a gig. I was hoping someone could provide a picture or description of any identifiable characteristics of the original IEC cable the Helix ships with, so I can keep the original and return the other (I realise they are functionally identical, I'm just very particular about this sort of thing) Any info would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Yes, will double-check everything later but I'm 99% sure that's not the issue
  4. I made a bunch of presets for a gig next week using HD edit and got all the levels right between each patch, however when footswitching the patches via the pedal, the volume is completely different compared to switching between presets in the software (as much as -7db between presets when initially they were exactly the same volume). I'm not touching anything on the pedal other than the footswitches, and the input settings are all identical and set to global (have tried saving them per-preset as well). It's as though the presets are receiving a discrepant parameter change from either the pedal or the software when switching (there are no controllers/expression pedals on the presets either).
  5. I bought a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 a little while back and am trying to figure out how best to use it with my rig. I'm using a Pod HD500x and could do with a bit of technical expertise. In the past I always recorded through the USB of my Pod, running a separate speaker to hear it. Since getting my 2i2, up until now I've just had the signal from my pedal running into both inputs on the 2i2 through XLR cables. This was basically just so I could run the audio from my PC and my guitar through the same set monitors. I've also noticed that when the gain on the 2i2 is just below clipping, it is significantly quieter when recorded into my DAW through the USB on the interface, than when I just record through the USB on my HD500x, does this mean my tone patches are too loud?? I've recently changed the setup so the interface and pedal are pretty much separate. I'm using the speaker to monitor the pedal again, and the interface just has a microphone plugged into one of the inputs at the moment. I was initially thinking of putting my interface between my guitar and pedal in order to record a dry track, but I wouldn't be able to use it to monitor the audio from my PC if I did that. Would it be better to use the FX loop on my pedal to record a DI track if I place it before the amp sim? And if I were to record dry tracks, could I then plug the output of the interface into the input of the Pod in order to reamp the dry signal? My main concern is how much gain from the interface the Pod could handle? Would it be 'safer' to use the FX return? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, been very uncertain about how best to approach my recording rig, so thought seeking advice before I change it around again would be wise! Thanks, Andrew
