    Mic is not recorded

    My Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 40 Deluxe has a XLR output with Cab Sim for recording (but not an input). And using it, everything worked fine with my first cable but not with a mic in front of the amp.

    Mic is not recorded

    But why did the cable that did not work with the mic, transport a line signal from my amp to Helix? I had the suggestion that the first cable was bad – but then it should not work generally. Mysterious …

    Well, I was also surprised. The two cables I used were: - https://www.thomann.de/de/cordial_ctl5fm.htm (the one that did not work) - https://www.thomann.de/de/cordial_ctm_5_fm_mikro_kabel_gruen.htm (the one that worked)

    Ok, the new cable solved the problem. Strange, I was not aware that there are different types of XLR cables … But for a mic you have to use a special mic cable – not every XLR cable seems to work with it.

    The cable I used for the microphone. It was a XLR cable but one for monitors – it seems that it was the problem, but I will finally get the answer when my ordered mic cable is here. It tried another short XLR cable and the mic worked. But it is too short to record my cab.

    Well, it seems I used the wrong cable … That explains why it transported a line signal but not the microphone signal. I now ordered a microphone cable – I will report what happens when I use it.

    Yes, of course …

    Mic is not recorded

    I bought a new mic (a Shure SM57) to record my amp – but I did not succeed in recording with the mic via Helix. In my opinion everything is setup right – the strange thing is, when a line level from my amp using the same cable is recorded I can hear the amp in Logic Pro X (via USB1), but when I use the SM57 nothing is recorded. My first suggestion was that the SM57 is DOA. But with another audio interface it works fine. So it can't bei the mic cable (because it works with line level), it can't be the SM57 (because it works on my second audio interface) and it can't be the routing in Helix (because line level via mic in is recorded). Has anyone any ideas what can be wrong? Phantom power is off (like it should be) … When I increase mic level in global settings the hiss increases but there is no sound coming from the mic. Absolutely nothing …

    Marshall JVM Channel Switching with Helix MIDI

    Ok, got it. The problem were global MIDI settings … I turned everything off there (exept: Midi Channel 1 - tap per snapshot). After doing this – everything worked fine.

    Marshall JVM Channel Switching with Helix MIDI

    Thanks for your description – I am not using a Marshall amp but a Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 40 deluxe. But there is something strange: I did everything as described there (exceptional that my Grandmeister 40 Deluxe has no midi leard - but that is not the problem because I know the right midi commands). The strange thing is: Using different snapshots inside a preset works fine but opening the preset (with snapshot 2 as standard) does not set the amp to the desired sound. It is always muted. There must be something wrong so that opening a preset in Helix does not send the midi command of the standard snapshot. Do you have maybe any suggestions what is wrong? I can't explain why all snapshots work fine but opening the Helix preset does not send the right midi command. After choosing a preset I have to change to snapshot 1, then back to snapshot 2 – now all is ok.

  13. Well, the situation is a bit weird … I defined for instant 1 for every snapshot a bank/program midi command (snapshot 1: midi channel 1, program 0; snapshot 2 Midi Channel 1, program 4 etc.). Switching between snapshots works like it should work - on my H & K head the presets of the amp change. But when I open the preset with my snapshots in Helix there's no sound coming out of my amp. My standard snapshot is number 2 (Crunch Mode on my amp). So before I can here my crunch sound I have to activate snapshot 1, then reactivate snapshot 2: now everything works like it should. To say it in fewer words: Everything works fine inside my Helix presets. Every snapshot changes the sound of my H & K amp. But when I change my Helix presets - every time I choose a preset on Helix for my H & K amp, I cannot hear anything … (It's all setup like in the YouTube video that I already knew before.)
  14. I know that – but where do I have to place the midi messages? It does not work having working commands on snapshots …
  15. I own a Hughes & Kettner amp that I would like to control with midi via my Helix. I am able to switch my amps channels via Midi inside one preset with different snapshots (commandcenter > instants) … But how can I determine what Amp Channel is used when I choose a new preset? When I choose a preset that starts with snapshot 2 (my crunch channel of the amp) the midi command of the snapshot is not sent to the amp. There must be a way to sent a midi command to my amp when activating a new preset. Thanks for your suggestions … Ulf
