    Helix FRFR options

    Sascha, thank you for an incredibly comprehensive reply! I'm not concerned at all about the lack of volume, the issue I have with my behringer is that I just feel that there's a bit of clarity missing. The speaker was around £120 to be fair, so maybe that's to be expected! I think I will see if I can try out the Alto or Headrush, and see if it's an improvement. When I trialled the LT in the shop they set me up with a Power cab (of course!) which sounded amazing on the Line 6 presets, I'm hoping with my own presets which I'm really happy with and a better speaker it'll all fall into place. Nice tip about the global eq too, I'll try that out.

    Helix FRFR options

    I'm currently using a Behringer eurolive b110d with my LT. It's fine, but I'm pretty sure there are better options! Any recommendations for alternatives? I can't afford a powercab at present unfortunately, does anyone use headrush monitors (or other.) on here?
  3. I've got a behringer powered speaker and a Yamaha PA, have tried both but I'm not entirely satisfied. Reducing the E and A and D string signal on workbench to around 80 / 60 % has helped, but it's something about the attack and lack of sustain. Essentially if I closed my eyes I would hear it's nowhere near an acoustic sound! I half wonder if I have a dud as so many others seem be satisfied..! I have a Helix LT also, thinking of just setting up a patch for the acoustic sound with some EQ etc etc..
  4. 10's. sounded the same after a set up too. I haven't updated the firmware for a while, maybe I'll give that a whirl.
  5. I've had my standard for a year and a half. I get it out and A/B it against my Tele or an actual acoustic and I can't get to grips with it. It's not just it doesn't sound as good, it's that my tele is much, much better and the acoustic models don't come anywhere close to my relatively cheap acoustic! I've been told to reduce the piezo pick up outputs and this has helped especially with the lower strings. However the acoustic models are fairly unusable to my ears. Any help appreciated!

    Full Helix or LT...?

    Yeah, I have a FRFR speaker and have been using that for most of my edits, have got decent headphones too for initial sketches when I can't make noise! I like the idea of snapshots, and could see myself using it later, but turning blocks on and off is working for me at present. With the amount of blocks you can have in a preset the LT is definitely enough for me too. Just getting my head around IR's, I didn't really use cab settings on my XTL so dipping my toe in. I have downloaded a few free ones (Gods cab, Red wire, Allure) but there are so many it's hard to know where to start! I've always found Line 6 gains and OD's a bit too close somehow, and they did tame them a bit? Will keep tinkering. I have a recording on Sunday so will be test driving properly then!

    Helix backpack

    That's fine, I'm more concerned about when it's in. Time to buy I think..

    Helix backpack

    That's what I was thinking! Been to enough gigs where you can't park nearby and I think one less trip would be nice!

    Helix backpack

    Yes, the flight case was built for my XTL, but it means two trips into a venue which when parking is a problem is a pain. I like the idea of the backpack to make get ins quicker..

    Helix backpack

    Just bought an LT. I have a flight case that it will first in, but am tempted by the backpack. Any pros / cons to it? I would worry a little about stuff in the pockets weighing down on it, and also if it stays upright when put down?

    Full Helix or LT...?

    Well if anyone's interested (and you're probably not..!) I'm glad I upgraded. editing is so easy and the sounds are so much better than my XTL! Still a bit confused by snapshots and IR's but will dig in again tomorrow!

    LT arriving tomorrow! Going to have an evening of setup I think!

    Full Helix or LT...?

    Money is always a concern unfortunately... I think I'm going to go LT. Acoustic into the return on it's own path will do the job and while I liked the scribble strips on the floor, I think once I get used to having them on the screen instead It'll work out fine!

    Full Helix or LT...?

    So I could have an acoustic in a return and send it to a designated acoustic patch? I'm happy to go for the full floor, but think the LT can do as much as I need.. Dilemma!

    Full Helix or LT...?

    I know this has been discussed many times, but... Tried a helix today in a local store, absolutely amazing. It's quite an upgrade from my XT live sonically, but besides that I found the intuitive way it makes editing sounds easier a revelation! So, my questions are: 1) if I go for the LT instead (which they didn't have to demo.) is editing on the fly harder, or basically the same? 2) LT only has one input? I could see myself wanting to have two guitars plugged in maybe with different signal paths, (maybe an acoustic for example?) is this possible with the LT and if so how!
