Output separate SPDIF 1 and 2 signal from Helix rackI record my Helix output to Reaper via Focusrite 8i6 using SPDIF. I prefer to go all digital to avoid going back and forth between analog and digital. I also prefer not to use both the Focusrite and Helix as audio interfaces simultaneously because I use a PC and have heard that there are common issues with ASIO4ALL (please correct me if you have had a different experience doing that). I want to record both a dry and a wet track digitally. On both the Focusrite 8i6 and my DAW (reaper) I can select SPDIF 1 and 2 separately but I cannot seem to find a way to output a path to either SPDIF 1 or 2 in Helix, just both 1-2 together. It seems like Helix bunch them together so when you choose digital output, and select SPDIF for digital output in global settings, you automatically get SPDIF 1 and 2 together. I realize that I can just use the Helix audio interface and record the dry path via USB 7. The issue is that I sometimes record acoustic guitar takes on four tracks - dry digital, wet digital (processed thru helix) and with two microphones. To do that I think I would either have to use both the Helix and Focusrite audio interface (which seems problematic with a PC) or figure out a solution to my question - how one could send separate SPDIF 1 and 2 outputs from Helix. Is there a workaround? Am I missing something? Have I reached the outer edges of the vast Helix universe? Your thoughts on this are much appreciated. Thank you. - Johan
PODHD500X Recording. Rythm & Lead patches.Hey everyone. I'm trying to record with the PODHD500X, and I've found that tone setting is very challenging for me. The tone I'm going for is Intervals - The shape of colour, Aaron Marshall kind of tone. I'm just not sure how to get there. Any tips or general rules of thumb for getting this kind of metal tone? I tried this setup: Hard gate >Tube screamer >Tube comp > Treadplate > XXL V-30 > Vintage pre > Hard gate I notice with the vintage pre it makes a good rhythm, but it really sucks for a lead.
