Load Box with helixHi, How do I connect the cables If I'm using Two Notes Torpedo Captor load box with my tube amp? Is this corret: Helix send 1 to amp's input then load box output to helix return 1? Then IR block?
variable impedance/4CM/loadbox?yo, so I'm pretty new to all of this awesome tech out there and helix is my first multi Fx processor ever! great place to start right! lol so I have a lot of questions regarding a lot of things but I have narrowed it down to my top 4-5 regarding the (4CM aka Four Cable Method) and Proper impedance levels throughout the chain. First question: "Im curious to know whether or not I can "safely" plug strait into my Orange dual terror head from the helix mono out then from my dual terror into my cab?" (my first guess is no since my old amps power tubes "which were new" went out within a couple weeks." any isight on my newbie mistake lol? Second question: (which is method I'm most intrigued about and would like to use). Regarding "The Four Cable Method...." so from what I understand there is a variable impedance option available on the helix, which I am unsure whether or not this is what I should be using in this situation (and how to set up), or should I actually use a Suhr reactive load box back into my helix. my configuration vision: helix send 1 --> to --> orange dual terror input --> from the dual terror 8OHM Speaker out --> to helix return --> from Mono out --> fender deluxe 1X12 8ohm speaker cab. the questions: - Will this work without damaging my dual terror? - Do I need to be aware and set impedance properly at the helix, and how? - Can I go strait from helix mono out to my speaker cab? - Do I need to use a Suhr reactive load box when routing back to helix? (ref. example one.) (all without damaging any equipment) Example one: (signal chain with suhr reactive load) Helix send 1 --> to --> orange dual terror input --> from the dual terror 8OHM Speaker out --> Suhr reactive load input--> from Suhr unbalanced line output "10KÎ©" --> helix return 1 --> from Helix Mono out --> fender deluxe 1X12 8ohm speaker cab. any insight or help would be great Thanks! happy Jammin!! - josh
Helix + Tube Amp + Suhr Reactive Load (Recording)
DomHawthorn posted a topic in HelixHi guys, I'm currently running my Helix in 4CM with my Victory Sheriff 22, and getting great tones! I'm now looking to add a Suhr Reactive Load into the mix! The plan is: Guitar -> Helix Guitar in Helix Send 1 -> Sheriff Input Sheriff Send -> Helix Return 1 Helix 1/4 Out -> Sheriff Return Sheriff 8ohm Speaker Out -> Suhr Reactive Load -> Helix Return 2 (set to Line level) -> USB Out to Macbook Path 1, would contain my tone related blocks (effects etc), input set to guitar in, and output set to 1/4 Out. Path 2, would contain a Cab/IR, input set to Return 2, and output set to USB. My question is, should this work? Am I at risk of damaging anything in this way? It would be the ideal home recording solution for me. Any help would be massively appreciated! :) Cheers guys!
