I know that Helix SHOULD be able to do this ... just can't work it out by myself ... I am preparing a Brian May tribute that should be opener to my band's show. And I would love to start with something close to the sounds, Brian May came up with and which up to now, nowone I know was able to copy. It is these sound games that start in this video at about 2:40 ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inhExqvtztE In the 80ies I had the luck to meet Brian himself and ask him, how he did this and he answered: with an Eventide Harmonizer, whose output was going directly into the PA (NOT into his AC-30s!). Well, obviously there's more to this. For instance he seems to do some pitch shifting with a pedal and there seems to be a decent portion of delay included either. All of this equipment IS included in the helix, the delay, the eventide and the possibility to separate the signal and route it through a special output going directly to the FOH mix ... Still I can't work it out how to even get close to this sound. One problem that baffles me is for instance: how does Brian get a feedback without using his AC-30s?? Whenever I am playing the HELIX directly over FOH with monitors I NEVER get any feedback at all ... And mind, he's doing it live as well, not only in studio. Any help here would highly be appreciated.
I have never posted here before, so forgive me if this is in the wrong thread. I am trying to set up my UX2 to be used with a harmonizer and loop pedal (TC Helicon play acoustic with Switch 3). Given that loops take a lot of practice and time to set up, I need to be able to plug in in my studio without dragging in my whole entire PA. I thought that it would be as simple as plugging the 2 XLR cables into the 2 microphone inputs (that's what I usually do on my mixer - Bose ToneMatch - when I'm gigging), but it's almost like the UX2 doesn't recognize them. I don't know if there is a setting I need to change, but there is just absolutely no signal response. I have the 2 XLR inputs from my pedal (one for mic and one for acoustic guitar) plugged into the 2 microphone inputs (1/L and 2/R) on the UX2. Admittedly, I know very little about the UX2, and because "life happened" right after I purchased it, it has been sitting on my desk acting as the conduit for the "noise" that usually comes out of my computer (system sounds, music from iTunes on my computer, YouTube videos, etc.) Anyone ever have this problem, or know what I need to do to resolve?
Has anybody discovered a clever way of changing the harmonizer key for a given preset on the fly? When I'm playing live and the patch I'm using has the harmonizer set to Em but we're playing a song in F minor, how can I change the Harmonizer setting without going into the edit menu? It would suck to have to create like 8 identical patches with a different harmony key for each patch just to accomplish this. Anybody find a better way?
