    Have you considered that you may have bought the wrong product for the job. Unless you really are into circuit bending you shouldn’t need to butcher the hardware - you could simply buy a Quad Cortex as that appears to be what you are wanting to achieve.


    No I love my Helix but I like to mess around with tech.

  2. Is there a data sheet on the actual processors used inside the Helix floor model? I was thinking about upgrading the actual CPUs inside. One thing I was wondering is if the firmware recognizes DSP on the fly or is it coded into the firmware? For instance if I doubled the processing power would it still grey out blocks at the same time it would for the normal CPUs or is it calculated otherwise?

    he simplest fix is to hook the output up to a mixing board or a DAW and manage the signal level output from the Helix

    Thank you Duneduin I have done this but still noticed that noise which I found out was digital clipping (which again I didn't know was thing until that video). I appreciate your reply though especially the advice of:

    the easiest way is to make sure that when you add a block you're not constantly increasing the output level of your signal chain

    So easy to keep adding volume. Cheers mate.

  4. Hello all,


    Helix user of a momentously heralded 2 weeks here (please hold your praise and applause but I appreciate the sentiment) and I was noticing some noise in the signal. I did what I could to mitigate it but couldn't completely remove it. Like all Helix users I'm sure I've been consuming as much information and content as I can on the product and I happened upon this video by Aaron Short Music about gain staging:


    Call me naive but I had no idea about digital clipping, is there a way other than your ear to find out within the Helix to know if you're having this issue? I've had to reword the 8 or so patches I've created but it would be nice to know there's already a built in function to kill this before it breeds.
