Hey guys, I noticed something quite odd today that I hadn't noticed before. It seemed that no matter what I did with my pickup selector on my guitar the tone remained the same on my patch. Is that just kind of the way the cookie crumbles with this stuff, or am I doing something wrong?
I can't imagine that the modeling technology could be warping the sound of my guitar that much that my pickups are rendered next to generic. If it makes a difference most of my guitars have Humbuckers and coil splitting.
In fact the oddest thing is that while the pickup selector does change things, it's like the opposite of what it should do. When I go to the neck it's more bold/trebly, and with the bridge selected it's thicker and bassy. I know it's not the guitar. It doesn't do that on my Triple Rectifier.
Is this normal? If so, I can't say I like it. The Helix has given me a lot of convenience in recording, but it's really a shame to have your guitars feel like they lose their character and become sort of sterile if that makes sense. I hope that gets worked out some day soon.
