    Stomp signal in/out routing question

    So,from reading the Manual, it looks like a total of 6 blocks maximum are available across all paths,so if 2 paths where used a maximum of 6 blocks divided between both paths,is this correct ? Thanks.

    Stomp signal in/out routing question

    Thanks Kilrahi.i'll read the Manual some more to find out what "blocks" are,i've read that 6 are allowed,but I don't know if that is a total figure or it can be per "PATH". I don't own a Stomp yet,but I'm doing as much learning as I can before "buying" one on 30 days return. Thanks,again.

    Stomp signal in/out routing question

    I'm not sure I have the correct heading for this question,but here goes. Is it possible with the Stomp to do the following ? send fuzz/overdrive Stomp pedals to front input of a valve amp Plus a left/right signal path,with Amp modelling & L/R effects to 2 x Monitor type amp/speakers(such as Laney IRT-X),so 3 routes? I've downloaded the Manual & it looks like it may be possible,but just thought i'd ask,because i'm usually wrong with modelling/effects use.(smiley).

    Helix Edit (Demo Mode ?)

    Hi,datacomms.I'm too old to get mushy,but a REALLY big thank you for posting this video,it has helped me enormously. Since my first attempts with modelling pedals,i've been useless at getting them anywhere to a decent Amp sound,also I have never used effects except for a couple of different fuzz boxes in the mid 60's(when it became compulsory),so watching Jasons vid has made me realise that my lack of effects knowledge,is probably the major reason for me struggling so much with Amp models. I have of course watched loads of patch building vids before,but the way he builds the patch & explained it(the important bit) has made the penny drop,without having the eq/comp/cabs set up correctly it's probably impossible to get the "amps" sounding right. I know most of the members on here & other forums,will read this & think of course "lollipop head",but I've been gigging for 60 years & only used Guitar straight into Amp(except for the fuzz box period),so I have never realised the importance of the "tools" to get to grips with Amp modelling. This is a big deal for me,i actually think that by copying or referring to these vids,i can possibly get to grips with this,i've never thought this before !! I'm going to take the plunge & buy a Helix,i'll start with the Stomp & then see where this goes(hope my long suffering wife doesn't read this). Oh & i'm also going to subscribe to his channel & how the hell do you get the smileys working !!. Once again thanks,A LOT.

    Helix Edit (Demo Mode ?)

    Thanks,datacommando.i'll go through these,one of the advantages of the "old" bit is I have the time(as long as the time doesn't stop).

    Helix Edit (Demo Mode ?)

    Sadly(for me)datacommando is correct (again),i'm just trying to avoid buying the Hardware without having some idea of where to start with it. So getting a feel for ploughing through how to start "programming" a Helix without the buying one is out !!(no smileys again).

    Helix Edit (Demo Mode ?)

    Hi,i've looked for the answer to this but can't find it,is it possible to run/use Helix Edit in "Demo" mode only,or does it need a helix attached to use it ?. Thanks.

    PreSonus AudioBox USB(48hz)Compatability

    Thanks,"again".This definitely does make sense,i would be getting to deep into a hole I may not be able to get out of,i hadn't realised Native had to be part of a recording software set up. I guess I will have to do a sale or return deal(don't like the idea,but),I actually do have access to a really good playback system in the form of a "DEQX"controlled 3 way Hi-Fi system,which can play back at high levels,but I would want the playback to be Guitar suitable stage gear. I wonder if you mind me asking a simple basic question about HX stomp that i'm trying to figure out as we "speak" ,which is does Stomp only allow playback of a Single Amp & not Dual Amps as is the case for the full Helix units Cheers & thanks for your help & time.

    PreSonus AudioBox USB(48hz)Compatability

    Thanks,datacommando.so sounds as if my presonus should get me going,am I correct it thinking,i can download Native & use it as standalone software?or do I have to use a DAW ?. When I typed DAW it felt a bit frightening,i have no idea how to go about setting that up(smiley face again). Yes i'm a bit worried about the "trial" period,it will probably take me a week just to get it going. What i'm trying to do is get Native working from my laptop(yes I actually have a laptop),to see if I can get my head round getting a good Amp sound(to my ears)with native,before I invest in a Helix device,which I would only use for playing live,i am getting too old(sorry) for lugging valve combos around. So i'm getting together a few different playback options,FRFR/power Amp & 2x 12",my Combo s/r/making sure my presonus is reasonable/.,to sort of have all my ducks in a row,before I do the Download. I've had a couple of miserable failures before with Modelling pedals,so with the improvements that have been made with Modeling since Helix(and a couple of others),i'm going to give it as good a shot as I can.

    Using FRFR Behind You On Stage

    It doesn't sound like many of you guys do small pubs in Liverpool(can't get the smileys to work),which leads to another comment I have never seen a Guitarist using a Helix level modeller(or anything else of that quality)in pub world,except 1 young band with no backline & electric drums & a good D&B pa,they sound great.
  11. Hi,i'm thinking of downloading the Native Demo & I have no idea(or not much)about using software,i have a PreSonus AudioBox USB & I have a question, Is this interface box sufficient to give me a fair to good indication of the Amp modelling quality of the Native software & maybe further down the road a Helix hardware device ? Hope this isn't a stupidly basic question,i really am a novice with this stuff(an old one) . Cheers.

    USING HELIX WITH A GUITAR COMBO / MESA BOOGIE

    Lakas,i think it might be best to start a new thread with your question,i think it may get buried/ignored in this thread,of course i'm not suggesting this just because i'm really interested in the replies :D

    Wireless Receiver when using Helix

    I've read(but I don't have Helix or a G10),that the more robust G30 receiver can be used with a G10 transmitter.

    FRFR fail!!! read before you buy one!

    I know as I type this I shouldn't get involved in the FRFR discussion,but i'm too old to start learning lessons now :rolleyes: . In fact I may be learning I've deleted my long winded response :D

    Easisest way to Demo Native?(for a dummie)

    Yes you are correct,but as I said in my second post I now have Reaper running,but I just don't need all the stuff with it,so I thought try Savihost & it was only once I followed your link I realised I couldn't use the Cab loader with the Amp plug in(LePou),i should say that my next step is try LePou through 3 types of playback systems,to get a feel for the sound & what to expect,before downloading Native. I have no idea how necessary the Cab loader is to give me a benchmark for Native,hence my question,about not being able to load it. i do appreciate the help & info & i'm not trying to change the goal posts,i'm just reacting to stuff as I go along :)
