  1. Is something that would get me really excited.... Anyone else?
  2. All great advice! What do you mean by TSR? Cheers, Chris
  3. That's positive! I'm joining the Helix party and have bought a pair of HS5s - two questions: 1. do you recommend XLR or 1/4" to connect them? 2. do you go via an audio interface or directly from the Helix? Cheers, Chris
  4. Good morning all! Apologies for entering the forum with a post that has probably been repeated many times before but it gives me a chance to introduce myself... I'm Chris, a predominantly bedroom guitarist who ventures out once a month to a local jam night. I've taken the plunge and ordered a Helix after finding an amazing deal. I've play with a few demo units in some local stores so don't have any anxiety around navigation of the device, but as someone who mainly just plugs into an amp via a few pedals, I'm a bit uncertain regarding the additional options for listening to the output of the Helix (at home). I think that the options are largely: 1. Studio monitors 2. Via headphones for near-silent practice 3. FRFR active monitor 4. Amplifier (fx return or front-end) I'd like your advice mainly about option 1 as this looks like a good link into DAWS and home recording. So.... What's the best way to connect Helix to monitors? XLR or 1/4"? Do I need to / should I go through an audio interface? Do I need to hook up to a computer or can I just go directly to the monitors? I currently only have a MacBook Air but will probably buy an iMac later this year. I appreciate that I'll need the computer attached if recording, but as I only have a laptop and use that for work other things, it doesn't have much storage capacity and I like to keep my set-up as simple as possible - i.e. plug and play. Thank you in advance! Cheers, Chris
