I was pretty unsatisfied with the Helix at first also. But after literally about a year of tweaking, researching, downloading, experimenting and playing through it exhaustively, I've come around to digging it quite a bit. I still think that it has many more secrets to give up. Here's a couple records I made with it: https://searchdivision.bandcamp.com/album/gr-venomicon https://searchdivision.bandcamp.com/album/born-yesterday More on the way. BTW, Steve Howe used a Helix floor unit into a L6 DT50 for his live rig on the most recent Yestival tour. Sounded fantastic from the front row in LA.
