  1. Good tip, thanks. Can you remember which one in particular, or was it just trial and error?
  2. Right, I've obviously been missing something - so are you saying you wanted to, for example, play your clean sound, switch on (eg) the chorus, then change to the crunch sound and have the chorus stay on, as would happen with a conventional pedalboard/amp setup?
  3. Sorry, but what am I missing here? By 'on/off state' do you mean bypassed/not-bypassed? Or is it something else? Forget it - I see what you mean now.
  4. You can, just like I said - it's what I do using snapshots, because, like you, I don't like having to plan out my performance beforehand either.
  5. I use an IR block loaded with an acoustic guitar IR from 3Sigma audio. It works pretty well with my Telecaster, a bit of eq and reverb.
  6. Then rename snapshot one ‘Clean’ and snapshot two ‘Dirty’ or whatever, and you’re never confused again. Rereading your post, it seems you might have the wrong idea about snapshots - I mean, it is possible to use them only as you describe, but you don’t have to. I use them like channel switches on an amp. Then, like I said, you can still use your stomp foot switches independently within each snapshot.
  7. You say you don’t like snapshots, but this seems to me the perfect solution to your problem. Your existing routing is your preset, clean amp on/dirty amp off in snapshot one, vice versa in snapshot two, then just switch your stomps on and off as required.
  8. Yes. Your Helix should have come with a hex key in the box (my LT certainly did). If you look on the side, adjacent to the expression pedal, you should see a recessed hex key bolt - that's how to adjust the resistance in the pedal.
  9. You could also get round it using snapshots within the same preset.
  10. No velcro. I took the back row of feet off, and it doesn't seem to move at all during use. I got a left-handed, 90 degree kettle lead (not shown in the pic), which stays plugged in when stowed, and the plug sits behind the LT and prevents it dropping in the box when I use the carry handle - well, that together with the fact that the LT can't twist in the box, due to the tight fit with my other pedals. The vertical height inside the case is 4" (the LT is 3.6" high), but there is a soft foam lining to the lid, which again helps to hold the LT in place in the box.
  11. Just mounted my LT on a Diago Showman, medium size.

    I'll ask again - why don't you just use the XLRs? Or am I missing something?
  13. Just finished installing my LT alongside a couple of old favourites on a Diago Showman (medium) - pretty good fit.
  14. Remember that phantom power is only passed over an XLR connection, not a jack. So, since your Helix LT does not have any XLR inputs (outputs only), you can't plug your mic into it directly. I would suggest connecting your mic to, say, channel one input on your Zoom, then set up a monitor mix (see p38 of the Zoom manual) to route signal from that channel to, for example, 'monitor out A'. Connect monitor out A to your Helix using a jack cable (remember to set the input of your Helix to 'line' level). Process the signal as desired in the Helix, then bring the output from the Helix (jacks) to the line inputs on your Zoom (channels 9/10, for example). Again, remember to set the output of your Helix to 'line'. Use the main faders on your Zoom to balance the dry (channel 1) and effected (channels 9/10) signals.

    Why not just use the XLRs?
