    Another DT/POD doesn't sound/feel the same question.

    Hi there Sorry for the dumb question - how did you dial these options in? Thanks!

    New Helix amp models and topology on the DT25

    Thanks Craig
  3. Hi there I was wondering if anyone who is using the Helix with the DT25 had any advice on selecting the best topology from one of the new Helix amps, such as the Litigator? Thank you

    MXR Studio Compressor in the Effects Loop not working

    To be honest I haven't tried that so I'll have some time tomorrow and will do so. Thanks

    MXR Studio Compressor in the Effects Loop not working

    There still should be some indication from the MXR pedal with the meter indicating that compression is being applied. I set the pedal to its most extreme settings so I should have seen some indication there. I've tested the leads and they seem fine, but I might swap them out for others and see if the result changes.

    MXR Studio Compressor in the Effects Loop not working

    Hi guys Thanks for the replies. Definitely set to instrument level and connected to the correct ins and outs. All the best!
  7. Hi there I have an MXR Studio Compressor pedal, so thought I would try it in the effects loop. This pedal has a meter on it to display compression. When placed in the effects loop it is adding volume to the signal but the meter does not move, no matter how much I play with the settings on the pedal or how hard I hit the guitar. Taking it out of the loop and plugging it straight into the pedal it functions as it should again. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you!

    DT 25

    Can't say anything about the Firehawk, but the DT is a terrific amp on its own, with pedals in front of it or when combined with the HD500. With a workaround it is also great with the Helix.

    Got a Helix !! Connecting it to a DT50

    Try the full amp models. I was always stuck on the idea of having to use preamp models to connect to the DT25, and they sounded OK but a little thin. I switched to using the full models from the Helix into the DT and it sounded amazing. I blanked out the modelling in the DT on Channel B (plenty of discussion on how to do that elsewhere on here). I played with MIDI to change topologies etc but for the last few gigs I ended up creating patches where I set everything to Voicing IV, no matter what amp I was using. That worked pretty well too - judging by the compliments from sound guys on my tones. Here's a demo of using the Helix with the DT25 like this (along with my Tim pedal - I still prefer it and the Butler Tube Driver to the modelled versions). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_OhUFVp61M

    Hello !

    I've been using my DT-25 head with a Helix (and a real Butler Tube Driver and Tim pedal for drives) over the past few months. I've been fortunate enough to play some pretty big gigs recently and had some very encouraging feedback from guys who actually know what they are on about. The DT is such a good amp!

    Helix DT25/DT50 Integration

    Fully agree there - wish Line 6 would do something about it.

    Helix DT25/DT50 Integration

    I'm using my Helix with the DT25 as suggested by others on here; I blanked out Channel B in the DT and then used MIDI cables to change voicing, class and mode. I think it works really well.

    Trying to record Helix and backing track to video

    Hi there When I'm recording a more 'formal' video, I record the guitar into Cubase. Depending on the track I will strike the muted strings or use the count-in from Cubase or a track. I record video onto a Gopro. Once finished I mix the track down and export it. The video is edited in Final Cut Pro X and I use the percussive strikes or count-ins to line up the video from Cubase with the audio track the Gopro has captured, and then I mute the Gopro audio.

    Fremen, firmware updates, jazz tone

    With my archtop I normally use a Fender Deluxe, roll off bass and treble and pump the mids. It works really well for the bop/post-bop tone.
