A New Technique to Increase Amp Definition in Helix Posted February 24 I went to try this, haven't quite made it, I went to a shorter version. I play Helix rack into a solid state power amp into speakers. Always tweaking/messing to dial out harshness at high gain with various methods, along with different speakers, different eq, etc. etc. I went to try this and by accident went amp > high/low eq > delay. I pulled the eq down to add the split path (on Hx Edit) and there it was! Ended up with amp > branch - one signal continued straight through the other went through the eq, and blended them back together before hitting the delay. Ended up "keeping" the "harshness on the straight signal, cutting the highs on the other one, when they blended - for me - perfect! This was before touching the amount of each return, both at full - I changed the balance slightly, but more good, just slightly different. I basically did the same thing Craig laid out above, with one amp model. Going to put the dual eq (one on each path) as craig suggests and try that today, but by splitting AFTER the amp, the same model pushes the same signal and is joined together in what seems like the same way. It immediately sounded so good with ANY high gain model, I had a hard time continuing to try different models because I just wanted to play. Rolled in some clean models, but found it unnecessary, always felt very good with clean models. I also have a Triaxis I'll switch into the mix occasionally, did the same thing replacing the amp model with the Triaxis and same good controlled results. Thanks Craig for leading me to a very happy accident!
