  1. Thank you very much for taking the time to reply. I do have a few more questions though. 


    It sounds like you've already got the basics of the 4 Cable Method (4CM) down.  Your friend has the right idea - General Rule of Thumb is delay and reverb in the loop of the amp - but from the way you describe it, he may not actually be using your preamp (the way you describe it sounds like you don't have a preamp at all - modeled or real - which probably won't sound great).   However, the setup you describe in the first paragraph is correct: 

    So what would I need to do to use the Fender's preamp? Say for instance I wanted to use the amp as my overall clean tone but use the helix for all of my distortions, delays, reverbs, etc? In that situation, would I even use the amp modelers/cabs through the Fender. Do I have the FX loop set up right for just using my Fender as a clean amp and the Helix as a pedal board? 

  2. I appreciate this but I've watched this guy's videos several times as well as many others, and I'm still not getting it. I guess what my issue is, is that that there are so many options on what to do, I don't even know where to begin. I'll admit it, I'm a noob when it comes signal flow, etc. What I have going on is this:

    Guitar--->Helix-->Helix send-->Amp guitar input-->Power amp out-->Helix return-->Helix main out-->Power amp in 


    I had a friend just set me up with using the FX loop in the chain instead of the two "send/return" blocks. Ex. Guitar-->distortion-->comp-->FX Loop--> Delay-->Reverb.

    Am I using this correctly? 

    I also don't get Snapshots at all not matter how many videos I watch. I'm a very hands on learner and just watching these youtube videos where guys are doing things that I would never do because of the style of music I'm playing, doesn't help. 


    So what i'm saying is, any tips?
