Hi. I've recently bought a Helix HX to pimp up my violin and viola. So far I do like many of the presets, But, in my band I have also a strong need for the string effect in some of my songs. String should be a multi copy of my tone with a little touch of detune, to simulate an orchestra. Is this possible on the Helix HX? I assume this should be combined with reverb and may be also some delay and chorus. These effects I know how to add. Hope some one can come up with a solution. Thanks in advance. "Chipmunk"
I have an old POD 2.0 bought circa year 2000 which was purchased for recording on my electric guitar (magnetic coil pickups). Doing some research for when I get my self an electric violin which will have a passive piezo pickup. I understand that compared to the magnetic coil pick-ups which act as a low pass filter, for piezo pick-ups the capacitance adds a high pass filter creating a band-pass filter. So now the question is whether my POD 2.0 will be suitable for passive piezo pickup gear for violin, could not see any thing in the manual mentioning piezo pickups. I also have an acoustic guitar and blues harp which could be connected to a separate passive piezo pickup. For the violin do not want to loose the lower frequencies, the lowest string is G at 196 Hz. Also want to ensure the signal is not weak requiring the POD Output Level to be turned all the way up, leaving little room for adjustment. The outputs from the POD would either go to ear phones or the stereo line in on my iMac. Or is a Pre-Amp needed for the piezo before connecting to the POD, see that there are a number of Pre-amps available from other manufactures that specifically say they are for piezo pickups and violins.
I've been using an HD500 for a long time, and it's upgrade time. I play electric violin, and MIDI-controlled Whammy 5 is an integral part of my rig. I have a Molten Voltage Osmosis, which selects presets, sets Whammy pedal position, and also calls up presets on my Source Audio EQ. From what I've been reading, I will probably have to keep at least the Whammy, and probably the Osmosis, as well. Right now, I'm looking to set up the Helix rack in an 8u rack, with drawer-mounted pedals, and probably a rack EQ. I like having access to a hardware EQ at all times. My first question: Can the Helix floor/rack floorboard send more than one MIDI command at a time? Three to five commands would be nice. If I could leave the Osmosis at home, I might be convinced to get the floor processor instead of the rack version. Second question: Can the floorboards be set up with completely customized layouts? For example: Top row: bank up, preset 1, preset 2, preset 3, looper, snapshot 1 Bottom row: bank down, MIDI command 1, MIDI command 2, MIDI command 3, snapshot 2, tap/tuner Third question: Can a 3rd party controller(FCB1010, HD500, etc) be set up to access presets, snapshots, send MIDI PC/CC, tempo? I'm not concerned with changing preset parameters during performance. If the presets and snapshots are all MIDI accessible, then I will be able to do just about everything I want. Fourth question: Are there any internal LFO, like the Fractal processors have? Last question: Is the input impedance seriously topped out at 1 Megohm? I have a good preamp, but I never had to use it with the HD500. Not a huge deal, but I was really surprised at that.
Hi, I've been trying to use my G55 with an electric violin. However, I find the transmitter to instrument cable (2ft) is too short. Can a longer cable (say 5ft) be used without adverse consequence. Also, can you advise as to where I can get a 5ft cable. Thanks,
