Anybody have any success creating formant (vowel) sounds from the assortment of Helix wahs and/or filters? Any tips and tricks to share so I don't have to fork over more dough on an EHX Next Step or something similar? As a sidebar to this - has anybody figured out a way to route a Talkbox through the Helix in such a way as to keep it totally contained? Given the mic inputs, I'm wondering if the guitar can be routed out to the Talkbox (tube), then back in to the Helix (maybe at a custom location in the signal path/effects chain?), ultimately going out through the 1/4" to the amp instead of the traditional guitar->effects->amp->talkbox->mic->PA. Is this possible with the Helix?
Certainly I haven't searched well. No formant filters for Helix. . . yet???!!!. Ok, I can't believe that. it's a DSP based unit. There MUST be a way. Have we all just gotten a talkbox from somewhere and no one sent me the memo (I'll bet my spam filter deleted it!)? I don't see any new topics on this. I'm teetering on just dropping a "C" note (PLUS!) on an EH CockFight Plus. But I just CAN'T believe my Helix won't do that . . . even better than! I don't even see recent topics or posts on this. Nobody wants/needs a talkbox "tone" today? Someone please slap me and wake me out of this. We just giving up on L6? Or did I miss the post where L6 said "look elsewhere for this . . . we're NOT doing it?!?!" Edit: I missed one - someone created a GREAT Formant filter (that I haven't found) . . . now everyone is happy!?
Anybody have any formant wah settings they've programmed? If not, any ideas on how to get them? Maybe via 2 (or 3?) wahs, using the same pedal as a controller, in parallel, to create the necessary frequency variations to get "vowel sounds"? two frequency formant three frequency formant I am a giant fan of Line 6 products generally and the Helix specifically - it's worth more than the combined value of many of my other effects, not even including the 2 JTVs I bought to really unleash it. But I am still surprised this is such a blind spot for the folks doing the typically robust modelling work. Thanks for any help you can provide - Dan
