    Cab / IR question

    Makes sense...thank you for the reply. It's not that it doesn't sound great...I think it could be better! But that is the fun of it....typically the Laney's are 100% wet ..so they blend well in that situation.

    Cab / IR question

    I'm sure this topic has been beaten like a dead horse making scrambled eggs. But here's my question. I am running helix 4 cable method into a jcm2000 with 2x12 cabinet. Love it love it! Love it! I also use 2 Laney IRT-x's for a wet dry wet sound. Now here's my problem. I only play for me. I'm not worried about FOH or leaving my basement. So I am looking for that elusive amp in the room sound from the Laney's scince..I use them in conjuntion with an amp in the room. I dont want to sound like a miked cab...I want the wets to sound just like the marshall..To me cabs sound ok but muffled...i am having a little luck with the Celestian V30 IRs I just bought. I just thought I'd ask the group for any input. Thanks so much.

    H9 Control MIDI Settings to call up patches on Helix

    I have the H9 connected to helix in stereo via loop 3/4 and midi cable. I thought the H9 book was pretty easy to follow as far as midi goes. Not sure about a video...but have done what you mentioned.

    Pre EQing the guitar signal

    I believe and use a frown eq curve before tube amp 4 cable and smile eq curve right after.. tube amps want mids to push them...but I prefer a somewhat scooped sound post distortion.

    Stereo or w/D/w with 2 FrFr speakers...?

    I only play at home so I have no FOH opinion...but w/d/w sounds amazing to me. I'm using a Marshall via 1/4 out all dry...and xlr out to 2 Laney IRT-X's for a blend able wet. Path 1 is dry to 1/4 inch...split at the end to path 2 with stereo effects and cab block..and out to xlr. So many routing options I get a headache!!

    I sense an update soon....

    Not sure if this the place for such a comment...but I would love to see knobs in the editor instead of the sliders ..too big and cheasy looking. I hate scrolling down to see bottom parameters. I love the look of the eventide h9 control. Basically a sceen of the pedal itself. Love the helix otherwise!! Thanks

    Controlling H9 Performance Switch via Midi

    The performance switch is actually not a physical switch on the outside of H9..the only way to activate it is the app..midi..or analog switch..I'm using a MXR tap pedal. I found this on the Eventide website that explains it perfectly.... If, via cc, I send 127 then 0 right away...it flips to slow. Then back to fast if I do the same ... 127 then 0. This I call a TAP of a midi cc button in gate mode..not toggle. On/off. Because in gate mode it sends 127 when I press, and 0 when I release. If I HOLD that same switch, sending just 127....it goes to BRAKE mode..just while I am holding it. When I release...it sends 0, and brake mode is released. This is normal function...identical to my analog aux switch mapped to the performance switch. Also reminiscent of traditional Leslie controls on a Hammond organ. The key is sending the right cc signals. Your need for a double tap is because your switch is in TOGGLE mode, instead of an on/off gate mode..which is a limitation of some controllers...namely the Helix, as I understand. ...still love the helix after 1.5 years...H9 is just a great addition. Thanks you for this forum!

    Controlling H9 Performance Switch via Midi

    This post was a while ago I know...but thought I'd jump in since just bought a H9...just because I'm crazy and needed something new to play with!. Anyway I also couldn't get midi perf switch to work correctly. Found a post on the Eventide web site..which does work but is a little weird. Using a midi toggle...and dim to 0 and lit to 127. (Think i have those right..if not reverse them) You have to double tab the button quick to toggle fast/slow. Just pressing activates the brake. So maybe I'll just stay with the MXR tap pedal for perf switch. Save the helix switches.

    Crazy question for Helix / Eventide H9 users

    Thanks guys...I'll post my results
  14. Does any one if it's possible to use the amp 1/2 control switch on helix as an aux switch for the H9?? The H9 aux switch is a three way switch tip/sleeve/ring something....can't remember at the moment. I just need one thing activated. I don't use the amp/control on helix for my Marshall cause as most of you know...IT DOES>NT F-ING WORK!! I use midi for channel switching. I also use midi from helix for the H9 which by the way is amazing is stereo through helix. But I still want to control a feature not midi-able...does that make sense? Any advice greatly appreciated. Can I hurt anything by trying this?? Is it just a relay?? Can I fry the H9...or any other pedal by attempting this?? Thanks again.
