Hi guys, I'm new here but have been thinking about getting a helix for a while but never taken the plunge so it were.
I play in a 2 piece band and play guitar with faux bass and organ tones.
My current set up is
Morley ABC switch
Channel A - tremolo, fuzz, pog 2, overdrive, box of rock, delay, guitar amp
Channel B - EQ, Octave pedal (sub n up), tech 21 blonde with speaker sim off to bass amp
Channel C - Bit commander, ehx C9, ehx lester k, guitar amp
When gigging I take a head, 2x12 cab, bass head and a 1x15 cab. It's all very heavy and not the quickest to setup. I recently picked up a yamaha dxr15 and I'm getting some great guitar tones from it using my pedalboard into a speaker sim.
Would I be able to replace the majority of these pedals with helix or helix LT. I know helix does 4 paths simultaneously and I think the Pog and organ pedals could be put in the loops and incorporated into the correct path. This would hopefully allow me to turn up at gigs with the variax, pedal board and yamaha dxr15.
Is Helix for me? Given that I'm unsure Helix has always been too expensive for me but helix LT looks like a much more realistic solution. I need to replicate what I have above and be able to switch those paths on and off.
Hopefully you guys can help.
