    HX Effects Transparency?

    If i notice any coloration on the sound, was mostly good coloration, because you can boost, or dim your line output as you desire , but no muffled sound like the cheap modelers do , that being said , i get some 60 cycle hum , especially if I crank the gain of the tube amp a little more than 10 o clock , but that appears to be the result of matching the analog and digital unit , they never went very well together , I tried some inline hum canceling box , but no lucky there, it is more annoying when I use two tube amp in a stereo configuration , I still working on it , for now, I keep very clean pre-amp, and I use the master volume on the amp, that helps with the noise , that being said the ability to arrange the pedals anyway I like, and the variety available, surpass the drawbacks by thousand a mile , i even compare some of analogs with the compatible digital pedals , i could not hear any difference

    Boss EV-30 works with helix ?

    I found this question on the net already but I haven't found any detailed answer, I know about the mission expression, but, the dual output on the BOSS, I assume could operate EXP2 AND EXP3 on one pedal simultaneously? Plus I like the smaller footprint on the BOSS, I assume that it will also have a wider throwback than the Mission, that looks much like a crybaby. any recommendation, I am just speculating, for now, thanks

    stereo setup noise idea needed

    I have the helix on a not so large room, with 2 tube amp on clean , in stereo, I am going from the helix to the amp from the left and right instrument cable output on the helix , NOT the 4 cables Method, and I have this electrical HUMM, that is quite common when you hook two tube amps, with a digital moduler in between, is not so loud , but for prolonged playing time, it builds up on the ear becoming very annoying . so far I tried the ground lift on the back and doesn't help, maybe anyone know a trick or a sort of buffer or a magic pedal that isolates the amps from the electrical current that is creating the noise?

    idea needed to chain setting

    I am trying to set up a chain starting with volume pedal - assigned to EXP1 and a wah pedal assigned on EXO2 I want the volume pedal EXP1 to be ON all the time, when I TOE IN to switch to EXP2, I want the volume to remain on, and the wah to come ON as well the WAH functionality when on the EXP2. Right now when i toe IN the EXP1 goes to EXP 2 , but it turns the volume OFF. may be an overkill come to a forum for this, but I am just bouncing some ideas

    Looper vs expression pedal

    Ok , when I am just sitting , and Just making some noise I love to have , my beatbuddy , a looper and my guitar , but because I like to have the helix on the table , to tweak tones , I wish to use a foot switch for looper control I have a boss fs-5 foot switch , the one that Is dual switch ,momentary or toggle , I wish to operate the looper with the foot wile having the helix on the desk , or at list push record while playing , is that possible ? Another question is on the back of the helix have two exp inputs , the EXP2 and EXP3 are they TRS or TS only ? Sorry if the question if is too amateurish , but I will get there , I am a slow learner :) thanks for any help
