    I'm confused - Using one ASIO Driver at a time is a Windows thing, not DAW specific, unless I'm missing something? How do you use more that one ASIO Driver at a time in Reaper?

    i think i know why i thought Reaper did 2 soundcards at once. when i used to use reaper i was on a mac.

    with the Aggregate Soundcards

    i just went into reaper and ur right.

    why was i thinking different? i think because everything was set for the focusrite.

    sorry man i made a mistake there

    I'm just a Reaper guy. Does Ableton offer a lot of things Reaper doesn't over all?

    you basically never need to look at Ableton, and never need to touch the mouse. it can be in the background while u have youtube up or something, and it still works with Push 2

  4. or i can spend more money for a 3rd soundcard and run all the outputs of the line 6 gear into it. which is what i used to do but i cant do that anymore because it broke and it wasnt any good really just a focusrite. i been eyeing the universal audio soundcard...

  5. this is an ableton problem really. as you can only choose 1 soundcard. where as using Reaper i can use as many soundcards that r plugged in i like.

    but making helix and powercab share the same soundcard would make everything so easy

    Okay, now what you're trying to do makes more sense to me. The easiest way is just a split at the very end, one going to your amp, the other your DAW. This sounds a lot like what you're already doing, and the Helix usually has plenty of blocks for this.

     

    The only downside is if you want to be listening to how it sounds in your DAW. In my opinion, you're still better off with Helix as your DAW because none of the amp in the room stuff comes through. Granted, I don't know what type of cab modelling the Powercab uses when it does its amp in the room modelling (aren't there six amp choices? Going off memory here). 

     

    If it were me, I'd try to find a cab in the Helix that closely matched how the Powercab sounded in the DAW.  Then I'd connect your Helix to the Powercab through the XLRs. I'd connect your Helix by USB to the PC. I'd then do the following:

     

    1. Set your HELIX output block to 3/4. 

    2. Keep Helix input set to "multi."

    3. Set your DAW master output to 1/2. 

     

    This should allow you to hear your DAW recording through the Powercab. It will even allow your Powercab to create that amp in the room feel. You might want to test out that approach.  Also, I'm going by memory here on the Helix DAW settings, but I KNOW I'm very close so if you try it and it doesn't work let me know. One time I created an excruciating feedback loop that about brought the whole house down because my USB settings were borked. 

    the helix is 1 soundcard. and the powercab is a 2nd soundcard. both have there own usb port on the pc.

    seamless would merge the 2. i dont think u understood that part

    maybe they will update the helix and powercab to work with better routing, maybe instead of multi on the output, we could choose exactly what we want.

    or make helix and powercab seamless so that we only need 1 soundcard


  8. 1. Helix signal path without cab block plugged straight into Powercab. (so i need to set the output block to Digital, because Multi will have the guitar coming out my monitors on performance

    2. Powercab using LF Raw as the amp in the room sound.

    3. Output from Powercab to DAW w/DAW set to use Powercab as sound card. ( this wont let me playback my DAW from the helix XLR, if Ableton is set to use powercab as the soundcard.)

     

    i really need helix for playback in Ableton, and to Record from the Powercab.

    sux because i can do this so easy in Reaper. but i just got Ableton and i wanna use it lol


  9. yeh i really want to record what the powercab is doing. i have to split every patch i make at the end of the chain (so it takes up both bottom rows), with one output with a IR to USB 1/2. and the 2nd output goes to DIGITAL which is the powercab. im not sure what to do


  10. hi guys i got myself a powercab plus to go with my helix floor. its really great. but i have a problem because i use ableton live on a pc, means i can only choose 1 soundcard. Either the helix or the powercab.

    what i really want is to record the powercab, but use the helix for playback of abelton because thats where my monitors are plugged in. (into the xlr's of helix)

    thx in advance for ur help guys.

     


  11. if u just want to use someone else's presets and not do the work yourself, fremen has some great ones. ive brought all his patches and u will find a goto few in his packs that are great and also help you by showing how he makes them. especially for headphones, his patches rock


  12. i love the fremen patches the most. perfect for headphones or monitors. but after getting the powercab, i can just load up one amp and use lf raw mode and its great without even making a preset. just choose an amp and go. then i use the frfr mode for fremens patches
