  1. I'm not trying to make it more difficult caledoneus :) My UAD interface has a 1/4" line input on the front (which I use for guitar), and I'm using one of the rear XLR inputs for my Mic, and another XLR input for my keyboard. I also have an Optical interface (used for drums/bass/etc.) connected to the Optical In on the interface, and this setup works great because multiple musicians can be recorded at the same time. I have NO doubt that the Helix is a GREAT interface, but the UAD has many essential great plugins that I rely on, whereas the Helix doesn't, and it seems more trouble to me to disconnect: 1) My studio monitors. 2) My mic. 3) My keyboard. 4) My Optical interface. And............................................................................................................... then hook up the Helix to my studio monitors so the guitar can be heard while recording, but no one else can be recorded at the same time, and after the guitar track is recorded, I would then have to unhook everything from the Helix, and reconnect all inputs/outputs back to the UAD like before. That being said........................................................................................... I am an old dog who can be taught new tricks, so I'm open to any suggestions/discussion :) Thanks, Jerry
  2. That's a good idea, but I already have a Radial ProDI, and the way I used it with my formerly owned GT-1000 was to send the thru output to the GT-1000, and the main output to the Apollo. One of the reasons I decided to go with the Helix (besides the obvious reasons) was because I thought it would be easy to send a dry signal out one of its separate outs, and as such, I would not need the ProDI anymore :)
  3. Hello everyone! I've researched my question, but I have never seen it asked the way I will ask it :) I want to send the wet/full f/fx signal out one 1/4" outputs on my Helix, while at the same time sending a fully dry signal out another 1/4" output. I want to do it this way because I will send both outputs to my UAD Apollo Twin Duo, and then I will arm two tracks within LPX to record the original wet sound on the first track, and the fully dry sound on the second track. Once recorded, I will send the dry track out from one of my outputs on the UAD, using a 1/4" cable, back into the input on the Helix. From that point I will try out different sounds on the Helix, and once I find one I like, I will record that sound to a new third track on LPX. For those who might ask why I want to do it this way, the answer is: 1) It makes more sense to me :) 2) I don't want to use the Helix as my interface. Thanks in advance! Jerry
