HX Effects signal chain 7 cable method
benbutterworth posted a topic in HelixHow do I set up the HX effects signal chain/fx block/mixer for 7cm? I'm struggling! What are the mixer and effects loops settings in the HX effects? Stereo? Dual mono? I'm using two amps, and want to set up so drives go into the front of the amp, and delays/reverbs in the fx loops. Main problems: - I don't know how the signal chain should be configured to set up 7 cable method into the fx loops of two amps. - Because the setup isn't correct, I currently get a lot of noise as both amps are sending the preamp to the other amp! Basically both preamps are blended on each amp. - How do I ensure delays and other effects are stereo - as in ping-pong delay etc. What are the mixer and effects loops settings in the HX effects? Stereo? Dual mono?
HX Effects 7 Cable MethodI've had my HX Effects for about a week, and understand that it can output to 2 amps using the 7 cable method. What I'm not seeing specifically in the manual is whether those 2 amps can be alternated, such that Presets can be programmed to route to one amp or the other, but not both. Put another way, I know that the HX Effects' outputs in 7cm would route into the effects loop returns of the 2 amps, but how do I program a Preset to send only to Output 1 or only to Output 2? Am I right that the only way to do this would be to pan Presets going to amp 1 all the way to one side and Presets going to amp 2 all the way to the other? I wouldn't be able to use effects in stereo, but I don't mind. I can also loop the HX Effects into my ES-8, and run the HX Effects with midi from the ES-8, but I thought the HX Effects would essentially make the ES-8 obsolete. Keeping the ES-8 in my rig solely for this purpose would be overkill, not to mention that I wouldn't be able to fully use the HX Effects as I'd hoped due to this one issue. Thanks for your help!
