Hi everybody, the more I explore into my HX FX the more ideas I get, especially thanks to the awesome flexibility over the signal chain. I spend all my time in the signal view. I'd say I'm using the helix more like a creative tool, rather than a tone one. That's way I got the HX FX and not the full floor unit. I was hoping there were more discussion about the creative/experimental side of things. I mean... having two separate chains (and having one at 100% wet) opens up to a hell lot of creative possibilities. First big question I have is: how to have blocks like volume and gate being automated by the tempo to create for example auto-volume swells (tight to the BPM and not to dynamics and such like Adrianswell or Vintageswell). I can't use a pedal to do this 'cause I'm already dealing with playing the guitar and singing and change the sounds etc.. The gate idea is even crazier so I try to paint a scenario (assuming I'll be playing tight as hell): I have two signal path A&B. Let's say A is the "guitar" channel and B is the "Crazy". I play fingerpicking and I want the bass notes only (thumb picked) to be picked up by the B signal chain. I know I'll be playing a bass note every let's say quarter, so I'd have a gate to mute the incoming signal every quarter, therefore getting a quarter notes bass line to process as I please (for example with harmony pitch or multitap to create basslines). What do you think? Do you guys know any workaround? Thanks in advance
Hello everyone. I have a noise problem. I have my POD HD500 connected to a stereo power amp and 4 x 12 speackers. When we play with my band in rehearsals, to be playing a chord, this is not ringing and then I get feedback. I POD input 1 set to "Guitar" and input 2 to "Variax". The impedance is set will at 230K. My guitar has pickup Bill Lawrence XL500, which are not very noisy. The pickup height is correct. All cables are in perfect condition. It bothers me that I can not play a chord without the feedback appears, and it hurts to have good sustain. I attached my preset. Thank you very much in advance for your help. Sorry for my English. mesa sala.zip
I noticed my presets were noiser than usual. I thought maybe it was just my house because I get grounding noises frequently in my room. As I was building a new preset I noticed the noise gate isn't working at all. Don't tell me I'm the only one?
I'm still getting the hang of my IV 150 and haven't found any help elsewhere so hopefully y'all have some experience with this. I've noticed that when playing softly or when two notes are ringing out (maybe during a bend) the volume cuts in and out very subtly, like a tremolo almost. This mostly happens with the high gain models and I'm pretty sure it's happening because the strings volume kind of fades in and put while being held. I think half of the 'signal' is getting caught by the noise gate. I was wondering if anyone has a favorite setting they like for NR, Gate or Gate+NR? Or do you recommend using it at all? I've read some people just turn it off altogether.
