chrmsmith posted a topic in HelixHey Hey all, so the deal is I am a new user to the Helix floor. I just installed HX Edit and HX installer update 2.8. I am running the 4CM and using the recommended send and return setup I have seen in a few videos -> AMP is a 2008 Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Using Send/Return #1 Guitar to Helix In Helix Send to the front of amp Amp loop send to Helix Return Amp return to Helix Out All is good. I place an effects loop in the preset and set to loop #1. Get sound and all good. I place a distortion and chorus in front of the loop, all good there. Put a delay after the effect loop in the preset and ..... nothing. No effect can be heard. I turn the loop off and get no sound at all. So the question is, why can’t I hear my delay set in the loop? Is it normal to lose all sound when turning the loop off? If I have the distortion and chorus in the front should I at least hear that? I spent an hour moving cables around and screwing around with the Mesa foot-switch engaging the loop on and off, bypassing the loop, switching cables .. nothing seemed to work. Any ideas? This is step one, next is to set up MIDI switching to I can automatically switch channels but one thing at a time.
Hello everyone, thanks for contributing for this forum! Amazing source of information! I finally received my Helix today, I am so happy about it, played with it for 4 hours working on different presets. My question is what is the best configuration to use it connected directly to my guitar combo, I will mic the combo to the main mixer. Since I already have a Mesa Boogie Mark V, should I still create an amp/combo block or should only create a pre amp, or create nothing? Is there anyway to send the effect session into my boogie send/return session and use the Helix overdrives/distortion emulation in front of the boogie?? I need to know what is the best optimized connection and configuration in this case. I really appreciate any insight. Thank you in advance. Marcio
