    PC 112 vs 212

    I still have to use the PC212 with the band at full volume, due to covid19, but in my experience you always loose some thump when going from 4x12 to 2x12 unless you go for XXL formats. There's no way to avoid that.
  2. I 've bought a PC 212+ recently and I find the speaker mode really underwhelming, to be honest. In FRFR or IR mode the cab is really good but the modelled speakers don't sound good at all to me. I've always played the Helix with real cabs and the speaker mode of the PC 212 is not even close to what an actual 2x12 cab sounds like.
  3. Does anybody knows what is the nominal headroom of inputs, outputs and send/returns? I'm new to the helix world still have to experiments with pedals in the fx loops but I was wondering, for example, how much can I boost with a clean boost in the fx loop before clipping the input side? Or, how much can I boost with an helix block at the end of the signal chain before clipping the output? Of course there's not a unique answer to this question one you start messing with volumes inside the helix because but I'm sure there's a nominal level (wich only line 6 knows). At the end I'm interested in an indication of the performance we may expect from the unit in the case it's used with 4 cable method with a tube amp, a situation where you might need to boost the front of your amp with and helix boost or a boost in on of the fx loops and need to boots at the end of your signal chain (again internally or with a pedal) for solos. I agree with those who are asking for some kind of meters for inputs and outputs.
  4. HI everybody, first post here, I own a 2555x and the amp ext out of my helix works perfectly with the amp in a 4cm configuration. Before buyong the helix a couple of weeks ago, I've read this thread and was expecting a problem, but there's none. Everything is fine. The only "issue" I've had is ground loop noise I've solved with a passive ground loop killer between helix send and jubilee input.
