  1. Think when waymda said 'PC' he was referring to Powercab, not Personal Computer
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. I've used a RCF710 which sounds great with the Helix, a Yamaha DXR10 is also an excellent choice
  6. 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!
  8. 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?
  10. I like the footswitch idea, I normally use 3 snapshots and the rest effects so it would be good for me
  11. 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
  12. Doesn't it make it difficult to reach with your feet ;) Why not just use a PC editor and leave it on the floor?
