  1. You can, but you will want to remember to turn off the cab sims on your preset, as the katana's speaker will be your "cab". I've done it before using my Katana Head into a Marshall 412, and it was pretty killer.
  2. if by intonation you mean the tuning between a string up the fretboard, no... there is not way to affect that with the Helix, b/c it is a physical thing about the relationship between the neck/body/bridge/ect.
  3. unless they mention it in the description of the preset, there is no way to know. Just find one that sounds good to you, or put in a stock cab.
  4. Yeap. Super easy.... Might be best to record the guitar and vox separately though so your vocal mic doesn't pick up the guitar.
  5. you can't. You will have to assign a volume pedal to each preset and use that.
  6. it works, but the issue you may be having that it is kind of picky as to which IRs it can load. There is a website called LiveReadySound that sells a pack of IRs made specifically for the PC, and they are pretty good. Might be worth checking out.
  7. As someone said above, buy one from someone with a good return policy (Sweetwater for example) and try it out... if you don't like it, send it back...
  8. Yep. I do it fairly often. You'll have less "oomph" on the bass end of things than you would with an amp designed specifically for keys, or with a PA, but it definitely works
  9. Experimentation is your friend. I usually do comps first, then dirt pedals, then amp/cab/ir, then delays, mods, reverbs last. But, you can switch that order around and get some cool effects too.
  10. I'd bet on the first one. lol There are some sound guys out there who just don't get how going direct works.
  11. I went with the LT, I have no regrets. The only thing the full floor has that I would have had much use for is the mic input, fixed that with a cheap $50 mixer.
  12. I would say that the PC+ is definitely worth it. I picked one up a few months ago, and it is amazing. The Flat mode works great for an FRFR solution, and the Speaker Emulations are awesome too. The ability to load IRs into the PC+ is awesome as well.
  13. I turn mine off/ on with a power strip. It turns on my Monitors, Powercab, and all the other connected items as well.
  14. small mixer or interface, run mic into one input and guitar into another. Pan them hard left and right, then run the left and right outputs into the helix as need. I do that to use a mic with my LT (since it doesn't have a built in mic pre)
  15. worship tutorials has a bunch of great sounding presets as well. They do cater to the worship guitar player crowd (in case the name didn't give that away), but their presets are affordable and pretty well put together, and most of them include IRs as well.
  16. I honestly have a hard time picking on amp, b/c there are so many good ones and I use a lot of them. If I had to pick a current go to though, it's probably the Revv Red
  17. Well, if you use the Helix as your interface, it is STUPIDLY easy to do what you want, as the #7 output is always a DI track (dry signal), so you don't have to do any sort of signal chain gobbeldy lollipop, and can then use the Helix to reamp that dry signal as much as you want. However, since you want to make it more difficult, you'll have to set up two separate signal paths (one with amps/ effects, one totally dry) and then send them to the separate outputs. Means you can't do stereo effects (or if you do, they'll not be stereo)
  18. agreed. I had the HX Effects first as well so can speak to how scribble scripts work... performance view on LT is better IMO as well.
  19. I've got the LT, and have no problem with it. I don't care about the scribble scripts, honestly, I kind of like the virtual "scribble scripts" on the LT better than the ones on the full Floor.
  20. Glen Deluanne has some great ones. The Fremen pack(s) are pretty good as well. The Mbritt pack is great too, and it's pretty affordable.
  21. I have run the Line out from my Katana Head into the PC+ to see how it sounds before, and it's actually pretty nice.
  22. I just got the PC+ myself, and when I started loading IRs into it, I noticed that it didn't want to load a lot of them. Apparently it is much more picky about what IRs work than the Helix. See Omni's post above
