  1. As the title says, I'm thinking about going the Helix direction but would like to confirm with experienced users that this is the right unit for my needs. I'm a living room musician with decent home studio. One man project. My music is kind of folk-trip-hop with an industrial twist. This is with acoustic guitar + voice upfront wrapped in lots of electronic and sound textures. I so include some electric guitar to my sound palette but I'm not looking for 'tone purity'. I have a usa strat (for smoother stuff) + kramer baretta (for riffing). For my electric guitar I will occasionally want true tones but more often than not I will want creative and varied textures over pure realistic tones. And that's for the 1% of the time I will be tracking electric guitar. For 99% of the time the Helix back inputs will be hard-wired to synths and mixer sends to process analog-ish type sounds in creative ways. So basically I want a big dsp multi-fx that is very flexible and creatively inspiring and that can also occasionally do nice guitar tones. From what I have seen from internet resources the Helix seem more flexible in terms of routing and the interface seem to me a little better than the competition for experimentation. Is the Helix the right one for me?
