  1. Thats the same way I would've done it too. I think the problem lies in the XLR-1/4 connector. That's where I'd check first. Does your bassamp have a balanced XLR input?
  2. When I do guitar work with the Helix I just rent either a Yorkville Parasource P12P or a QSC K12. I find them to be plenty loud. If I'm playing a bigger venue it goes straight into the FOH, they should have enough juice.
  3. Have you tried a low-pass filter before the synth block?
  4. I don't think you even need 2 blocks. You just need to drag it down...
  5. For those that have used the Helix in a live performance setting for bass, how has it worked for you? It works really well, sounds great, and it has most of the things I used to run but in one big box. No issue with not having enough output or outputs Do you use one of the XLR outputs to go to FOH? If I'm lazy, XLR to FOH. When I'm not, XLR from my bass head to FOH Do you use a bass amp/speaker on stage? Yes. I wouldn't have to if it had a model of the TH500. So I tend to bring the tiny little head with 4CM and XLR out on the head to FOH. For the FOH feed, I was thinking that having (among other things) an amp block (not sure if that's the right Helix lingo) and cabinet block in the Helix chain. But for the amp (stage monitor) feed, just an amp block. Does that work well in real life? That would depend on how you're running the everything. If you're running all the amp/cab sims to the house and using that to feed the house monitors or IEMs then you'd probably just leave the amp and sim blocks the same. If you have an actual amp on stage, you probably wouldn't be running any amp/sim on the monitor feed.
  6. Definitely one of the best CS in the world. The only one that's impressed me to the same degree is Eventide.
  7. Fx1 - TH500's preamp Fx2-4 - TBD
  8. So I bought the helix around October last year. I've noticed a really weird thing about the Momentary/Latching option. On the momentary mode, the switches would sometimes stay latched on. But while it stays latched on, it acts a momentary bypass when I press on the switch again. I've turned of Touch Select, it doesn't really help. Anyone else having that problem?
