    Another amp switching question

    I have an Engl ironball which uses a TRS jack connected to a twin footswitch. Tip to ground selects the lead channel, ring to ground selects the gain boost, both does both, and neither does neither. The Helix which appears to give me the option of tip-ground, ring-ground or both states but not both states off, so I can select any of the functions, but I cant set a command to set tip or ring to off to revert to just the clean channel without the gain boost, any ideas?
  2. My bet is you have 2 parallel paths set up, both with input set to guitar. Set the output of path A to the Input of path B

    XLR Fixed My Hum

    It's not shielding, or an issue with the 1/4" outs on the Helix, it's an issue with the jack inputs on the DXR, if you run a 1/4" to XLR unmalanced mic lead from the Helix it's just as quiet as using the XLR outs

    Helix FW 2.20 (The "Get Low" Update) OUT NOW

    Pretty useful if you're a bass player :)

    Anyone using RCF with helix?

    I've used a RCF710 which sounds great with the Helix, a Yamaha DXR10 is also an excellent choice

    Need assistance. Mr Brightside - The Killers

    I play Mr Brightside in our set and just use my standard cleanish patch which is the engl model with gain on zero into a 4 x12 with v30s it sounds good to me

    Future of Helix

    Just finding time to go through all the amps in the Helix will take ages, I've had mine 6 months, and still haven't really deeply explored more than a few. My live sound for a very varied covers band is mouthy the engl model and the twin for super cleans. I've never sounded better!

    Only using controllers on certain snapshots

    Yes, I want delay and Wah, but only about 20% mix and I have a max mix of 35% assigned to the controller, I think another delay block is the only way to do it.
  9. A bit of Helix advice please i have my expression pedal EX 1 controlling my delay mix level, and on one of my snapshots I want to use a Wah on EX2. My issue is that when I'm engaging the Wah by pushing down on the expression pedal my delay mix goes to max. Is there any way to just use the EX1 on 3 snapshots and have my delay level preset on snapshot 4 without using another delay block?

    Touring artist after only 3 days with his new Helix.

    Sounds really good, excellent playing too

    Helix wish list

    I like the footswitch idea, I normally use 3 snapshots and the rest effects so it would be good for me

    A challenge.... Slash UYI tone

    It's all in the fingers. Went to see a G&R tribute act the other week and the guitarist totally nailed Slashes tones with a Les Paul and a DSL

    Heavy duty music stand ≈ Helix stand?

    Doesn't it make it difficult to reach with your feet ;) Why not just use a PC editor and leave it on the floor?

    Possible bug with Red Comp

    Tried it with the guitar volume off and it pops 'sometimes'. When playing and activating it sounds as though it's loading with the sensitivity right up and then adjusting itself to the programmed settings I really not use a compressor to squish country or funk type sounds
