DSP usage between paths - sound quality? in Helix Posted February 18, 2021 2 hours ago, themetallikid said: I agree with Cruisin, either there is enough DSP to run the effect as its designed or it isnt and it'd be grayed out. For this purpose alone to spread things out, for me I use the 'break' between path 1 and 2 as the connection between amp and cab. everything and including before the amp block on top line, everything cab and post after on line 2. gives me the most DSP to play with stuff. Occasionally I have to put a 2nd amp on the 2nd path, but this gives me the most dsp for better quality/higher effects choices pre/post.... but to also answer your question the quality of the effect doesnt change because of more available DSP Great, thanks man! I also use path 1 & 2 if I use highly DSP intensive blocks (like the Poly Capo, where it eats up the major part of DSP available on the path, so I put almost everything else to path 2), but there I obviously have no other choice. For my basic presets however, I don't need to do that, and - as you made it clear - it would not make any sense either.
