    What does the input pad actually DO?

    From my experience. If you are using a real world amp and using Helix as effects only then switch the pad off. It sounds as though there is a blanket on my Deluxe Reverb with it on.....so much so I was considering a speaker swap. Other factors to consider are cable lengths / capacitance /pickups used. In the case of real world amps what strength signal the amp is expecting. I would suggest that the Pad is for active Pickups.

    Helix case/bag

    The Thommann effects pedal bag is of poor quality with the internal padding starting to fray in the corners. I'm thinking of upgrading to a UDG backpack for my LT. https://www.udggear.com/by-product-type/backpack/midi-controller/udg-urbanite-midi-controller-backpack-medium-black I have found that you can buy them for £107

    4 Cable Method Woes

    Probably best to watch this video. There is a 4CM template in the Helix itself which you can add effects to.

    Preamp vs amp block

    I have tried both into my Egnater return and found that the full amps sound best.....especially the Litigator.

    It's hardly a scientific poll with 64 respondents is it? If you did a poll of an industry standard stomp box tuner such as the TU3 with only 64 respondents I bet you would get 63 people stating its a great tuner. The fact that 1/3 of the respondents of the poll thought the tuner is deficient should send alarm bells ringing at L6....

    I have to say I sold my all my pedals to buy the LT and the one pedal I regret selling is my Boss TU3. I could carry out my own setups with the TU3 and now I can't. The Helix tuner is not good..in fact its poor.

    Thanks for the help...just not sure what that might look like. Sorry I'm a middle aged technofool. Cheers Nick

    Using Preamps with 4CM

    Sadly I don't have technical knowledge to post a pic but the preamp is located after the send and return block of the loop on the edit screen. If I put the preamp block in front of the send return block then I get a gainier tone but it's then hitting the preamp of my guitar amp...

    Using Preamps with 4CM

    Please could anyone give me any tips when using pre-amps with 4cm? I have the Helix all set up in 4CM with my Egnater Rebel 30MKii (and it works perfectly) but when I use a preamp (in this case The Litigator or any of the Tweeds) I can't seem to get as much of a 'dirty' tone as I would expect....

    Preamp or amp

    I recommend you watch this video. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvarQIPwchE Ritchie Castellano does an excellent job of showing how to use the f/X loop on the Helix with an amp

    Helix LT and Editor

    Hi Just bought a Helix LT. Done a couple of presets but can't save them to my Mac as I haven't downloaded editor yet. Question 1; Do I have to go through the whole reset on the LT as described on the software update in order for the LT to work properly? Question 2; If I do how do I do that? Question 3; What will happen to my presets and global EQs that I have spent this pm creating? Thanks Nick
