  1. I'm new to Helix. Did months of researching before I bought. I went the PA speaker (Yamaha DXR10) + quality headphones (Sennheiser HD600) route and could not be more pleased. I played in bands in the 80's with tube amps and some stomps then went to college and forgot about electric. Acoustic was where I stayed for the next 15 years. Then was asked at church if I'd like to play in the P&W band there. So back to electric it was. We use IEM's with an Aviom system. I run to FOH using 1/4" out mono into DI into FOH. At home I use the headphones to create and jam, and use the Helix > XLR > DXR10 to see what it really sounds like at ~90dB. At home I originally placed my DXR on the floor, but for me personally and even with the contouring, I like the way it sounds off the floor so I got a tripod stand at chest height. To emulate the PA at church. Sounds really good to me. I haven't ever heard or played through any of the coaxial FRFR's, but from what I gather if you want more of a classic tube amp sound then they might be worth looking at. They're not cheap. Long story short, research, read, research more, then go for it :)
  2. I think the best thing to do is play through the system you use at the volume levels you play live and get a patch/es dialed in to your ears. If that's possible. I went up one Saturday and sat out in the congregation and created 3 patches/templates that sounded good to me. A reference point of sorts I've since created some new patches at home with sennheiser hd600 headphones and a Yamaha DXR10 and have been very happy with how well both translate to FOH PA. The DXR sounds good and very similar to the FOH EV speakers. I use the DXR exclusively to set volume levels between patches (along with a phone dB app), that's been tricky. You're going to have to play with it and find out what you like by trial and error. I've enjoyed that challenge, GL!
  3. lol! Great idea OP I wished there was more room for text in each preset/snap for minor notes. Show us a pic?
