  1. I bought a PC+ to try out...there was a lot to like. The overall sound quality was very good. I felt like the power section was great and the different speaker cab simulations were all very unique sounding. All in all, it appears to me to be a great piece of gear. I did end up returning it, however, because I think that after years of playing with combos or open back or ported cabs, I felt like the PC+ just wasn't quite giving me that "Amp in a room" sound that I was accustomed to. I ended up trying my Helix through the effects return of (please don't cringe) my 1x12 Boss Katana, and after a little bit of tweaking I was able to find a sound that was actually quite good. I'm just a bedroom player and I don't play out at all, so this will work fine for me. I think that if I ever find myself in a band situation I would try the SD power amp, but it just isn't necessary for me right now.
  2. Hi, Was hoping to get some thoughts from people on amplification solutions for the Helix and I've narrowed my options down to either a Powercab Plus (possibly two to run stereo, but that could be overkill) or get a Seymour Duncan Powerstage 700 and run through my current speaker cabs. I know that the Powercab Plus will give me more versatility with the different speaker models, but I'm also interested in the SD Powerstage with my current 212 cabs to save some space, as well as keeping things simple because I'm not sure I need all of the flexibility of the PC+. Is there anyone here with experience with either one of these (or both) that could help me out? That is, make a good case for either solution with sounds being the primary focus, and not think too much about the cost. Thx. B.O.G

    HX Effects and Wah

    Hi, I've been looking at the HX Effects, and it has the potential to be exactly what I've been needing. The only thing I'm curious about is how I might control the wah. There's an expression pedal input, but unlike the Helix Rack, there's no jack for an expression pedal toe switch. Does the wah have some kind of auto-on/auto-off feature that will make using this with a regular expression pedal (i.e. no toe switch) easy, or do I need to assign a toe switch to toggle the effect block? I apologize if this seems like a silly question, but I couldn't find anything in the manual. Thanks in Advance, B.O.G
