I just purchased a Powercab 112 plus this week because I really prefer the power amp/speaker combination with my modelers. I was also intrigued with the features of the Powercab but the volume was a deal breaker for me. I play in a band with a loud drummer and this amp would not cut it, unfortunately. Had to send it back.
Hopefully this addresses your issue. If you are getting a strange dry signal when using an overdrive or distortion pedal, check the input of path 2A. Select 'None' from the list and the dry signal will not be part of your distorted sound. Here's a video from YouTube that addresses this issue in the beginning of the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlbM06SlYQY
According to the Helix 2.0 manual, the Aux In is designed to be used as an input for guitars with active pickups. If you plug a iPad here you will hear the patch's effects, including distortion, in playback.
