Hey, guys I'm just getting back into guitar after a 5 year break and to celebrate my return I picked up a Helix LT which will be here this week sometime. Before I quit playing, the extent of my effects usage was just plugging a pedal chain into the front input of my amp and calling it good. Now that the LT is on its way, I want to be sure I can run a proper effects loop on my tube amp and not fry any of my electronics. After watching a number of videos on the 4CM setup, I think I have the right idea with the cables and for keeping input/output levels proper for good tone. I was hoping someone could check my work on this, so I know that I understand what I am doing. Cables 1. Instrument cable from (output on guitar) to (guitar input on the LT) 2. Instrument cable from (send 1 on LT) to (guitar input of amp) 3. Instrument cable from (effects loop send on amp) to (return 2 on the LT) 4. Instrument cable from (1/4" output on LT) to (effects loop return on amp) 5. Speaker cable from (speaker out on amp) to (speaker cabinet input) Global Settings on Helix Output: 1/4" set to line level Send/Return 1: Set to instrument level Send/Return 2: Set to line level Send/Return 3/4 & XLR Output: Irrelevant to current setup. If you have any input, hot tips, or see any mistakes here please let me know. Thanks in advance, Feanor
Helix LT, channel switching and expression pedalHello everyone I am the owner of a Helix LT that I use in 4CM mode with my amp head. I use the single EXT output to change the channel of my head. When I change the channel via the helix, the light changes between EXP 1 and EXP2, so I had to assign two volume pedals at the beginning of the signal (one for each channel of the head). But when I change snapshot (and head channel), pedal 2 goes to 0%. I put a video that shows the problem. It seems that this is only present on the LT since the original Helix has a dedicated output for the channel change. Has anyone encountered this problem before? Thanks a lot to all. IMG_3112.mp4
helix lt 4cm Changing channels on a Huges & Kettner Tubemaister 36Hi! I Have a Tubemaister 36 combo and a Line 6 Helix LT. I've tried to connect them Via 4CM (plus a MIDI cable) so I can control de amp channels of the Tubemaister with the Helix (Via MIDI because it´s the only way to change channels on the amp). I know I'm must be doing something wrong because I just simply can't! Yes...I have seen tutorials on YouTube...and here where I'm standing right now: Besides all the connections of the cables (and the amp set in series mode), The Helix signal path is: Guitar in, Chorus, Pitch whammy, Distortion, SEND AND RETURN, a pre amp, Delay and a Reverb. If I disengage the series mode on the back of the amp I cannot hear the reverb and the delay... Somebody can help me? In advance thank you for your time and patience! I´m getting frustrated here!
