    Singtall Helix Superpack

    Curious about your presets but there's not even a description or audio on your site....

    Can I just say . . .

    Gotta ditto. I went to a Helix LT and the digital rabbit hole about 6 weeks ago and find it amazing. Totally having fun, learning a lot, and getting cool sounds. The capabilities and quality of sounds from this box blows me away.

    First time Helix through a house PA

    Suggestions for how to set the channel that I'm going through? Just have them set it flat or what? There will be no sound guy so it will be set and forget.

    Helix into two amps....?

    Currently running Helix into fx return of my Mesa with great results. Does anyone run a two amp setup with Helix? I'd need to run into the front of a Fender Custom Deluxe. Just curious as I'm exploring the possibilities with my current equipment.
  5. I play gigs that are comfortably handled by a Mesa Express Plus 5:25. It's 25 watts are plenty for me. If I were to go to a powered speaker for my helix what would be a good size so that I'm not lacking for volume? Specific suggestions are welcome as well. Line 6? QSC? JBL? I'd like to use it for home practice as well.

    Sorry...dumb newbie questions

    Just got the LT. Updates say back up my patches, but where? I'd like to download and use some patches from customtone but can;t seem to see what software I need to do that. Where do find these things out? Help.

    Tube amps Gone?

    Ugh. Not sure. Then again I just spent my first full day with my Helix LT running 4CM through my Mesa Express and it sounds glorious once I figured out how to do that effectively. I put together four presets that handle most of our playlist including some very song-specific effects and I'm blown away at the quality of the sound through that amp. This thing is some serious gear but I truly love my Mesa. Probably my Fender amp is headed out the door tho, along with a good number of pedals, which will be hard. That said, I may feel different next week.

    Using Helix LT with piezo equipped Music Man Silhouette

    Sweet. Thank you

    Using Helix LT with piezo equipped Music Man Silhouette

    So in the LT I would use the normal guitar input and an fix return as the other input for the piezo?
  11. With my current guitar I run a dual cable with one output going to my pedal board and amp and the other (piezo) going to a di box and then the pa. My question is: can I use the helix the same way, only with both outputs going into the helix and then the PA?? Or maybe just the acoustic patches to the PA and the electric to my amp? I'd like to just set up one button to switch to my acoustic sound and patches for the songs in my sets that need it. Can I even have the two cables out of my guitar go into two input plugs on the Helix LT ? If I can I'll likely buy one tomorrow.

  13. Had a spot on my board and needed something versatile for my cover band. I sometimes need a trem or phaser or additional delay so thought the M5 would help me out. Short story is that this $120 box really has some great sounds in it. I put together ten song-specific presets in about the first hour and they sound damn good in my rig. Talk about a great value Anyway, wondering if there is a resource for some popular presets that folks are using so I can try them out. Maybe an acoustic type sound or some string emulations that sound good. Just curious. Also, people say that the drives and distortions suck but I've found some really useful ones in there. Nice unit.
