    Recording with Helix - USB v Line Out?

    'jam on my Helix unit to jam tracks I have on my computer. It also makes it easy to watch instructional videos and play along...' Do you set up a preset to do this due to different levels from jam tracks and guitar or do you just do it on the fly and ajust guitar vol accordingly?

    Helix Floor as Audio Interface

    Thanks for that.I used to be able to do it via firewire into the desk and back to the daw but now thats u/s i was hoping the helix would do the same.I find it handy for pinching parts off solos on you tubea nd playing back in Transcribe. I normally just drag and drop audio files in to Sonar anyway (wav/mp3s etc) if i want to edit or use as reference tracks,and yep the helix plays everything but i cant understand why it cant record in sonar as its going through the same interface(helix) as all my instruments and they record(although it does take a bit of mixing to get the levels right! As someone once sang,'There must be a way'!!!

    Helix Floor as Audio Interface

    Thanks for replying.I use Sonar Platinum as well and I have selected all inputs and outputs to helix.I can record guitars in no problem but not anything from internet?

    Helix Floor as Audio Interface

    I am using the Helix as an Audio Interface after my 'trusty'!!! A & H Firewire desk no longer wanted to communicate with my DAW. Firstly I cant seem to record from the pc or Internet directly into my daw for some reason,any ideas why?(eg you tube to Cakewalk). Secondly am I able to record from an cassette player (2 ins r and l) as my dad recently passed and im trying to record onto pc his live recordings? Many Thanks.

    Best Helix presets I've heard (for my taste that is)

    Unfortunately I have a miss match between the Helix and my firewire a and h desk.I need to run my mixer for other studio stuff when helix not in use but need the usb off helix for editing.I know i could just run the helix direct and use as a sound card but i need to use the mixer for other things without the helix.When i use both there is a fuzz sound. Thanks everyone for links i agree vinais are like Marcos and i have the whole lot of them!!! Just wish I could get hold of the ones Vinai uses on his You tube channel.

    Best Helix presets I've heard (for my taste that is)

    What I cant understand is,I havent heard anyones sounds as good as Vinai ,i certainly cant get them and i consider myself ok at setting tones. Of course it's only my taste.(Smooth Jazz ones are the ones Im relating to). Any idea whether he's using helix as soundcard and what monitors/mixer/ hes using or into 2 amp? Gosh I wish he would sell these as the stock factory tones are rubbish in comparison. Has anyone got an up to date link for the on hes made available as the one above doesnt work. Very Grateful
