I would like to try using my Helix LT with my Boss Katana 50 MKii via the, 'Power Amp In' input. As I've been working with it, I'm setting up a new patch using just a Preamp on the Helix, no Amp or Amp+Cab. But I'm finding the default volumes and even the final possible volumes of the pre-amps to be widely off. I would like to continue working with this option before going to the, 'full amp' option so as to conserve processor and to not impact the tone with the modeled power amp. But before I do, I just wanted to make sure that I'm experiencing what is intended. Do you have any advice or recommendations for me?
I probably wouldn't have even purchased the Katana as I have (2) PowerCab 112+s but I'm just finding the Helix ecosystem to be way to complicated and cumbersome for me. I've spent more time learning about sound engineer techniques and solutions than I wanted to. So I bought the Katana and have fallen in love with the tones that it creates. I decided to try using the Helix in front of it as just a stomp box pedalboard and that seems to be ok. But the Katana 50 doesn't have an effects loop so the reverbs and delays can only go in front of the amp. Which is why I wanted to try the power amp in. If I can get this working, I can use Helix for everything up to the power amp and speaker.
Anyone else trying this?
