I just purchased a Helix Rack, arriving some time next week. My original guitar rig was a Line 6 DT25 and Pod HD500X. I still have the DT25, which has been taking up space in storage since I sold the HD 500 and bought an Orange Rocker 32 2x10 combo (stereo amp). I got the Helix as a replacement for my pedal board. But looking at pictures of the back of the unit, I am really wondering whether it isn't time to dust off the DT25. Here is my main question: is it possible to set up a stereo configuration on the Orange Rocker using a four-cable method, and then add the DT25 using the XLR cable? I am not especially technical, and of course I do not even have the Helix yet. Has anyone provided instructions on how to do this? Is it possible to change the preamps on the DT25 using the XLR cable (the way the Pod HD500 could) using the Helix? A few years ago, I heard you could not, but recently heard rumors that a Helix update now makes that possible. My ultimate goal is to set up the Orange Rocker and the DT25 to create a three speaker stereo wet/dry/wet effect. I have never done anything like this, and would describe my technical ability as slightly above beginner. Thanks for all your help in advance.
I am a bedroom guitar player. I might get back at jamming in the future if I find the right people to have fun with, but I mostly play by myself at home and looking to upgrade on what I have at the moment. I currently play with a Marshall JCM 2000 TSL100 with a 4x12 Marshall 1960A with Helix floor. I have the 4 cable method happening and it's great, no complaint. I keep hearing people with wet dry wet setup and it sound HUGE. Flexibility to play tunes that needs this setup is also very interesting for me. I am in the market to get either two Line 6 Powercabs 112 plus, or, get myself a couple little Marshall valve combo 40 watts which are about $150 cheaper than the Powercabs. I love the Marshall sound but do have presets where I play them clean through the marshall with different amps from Helix. that all sound great. What I am wondering is many people talk about the power cabs but to me being old school think I might get better served with two little Mashall on either side to accomplish my wet/dry/wet. Anybody ever tried getting their stereo sounds through amps or have some of you tried playing with an for center channel and use two powercabs? I love the idea of the powercabs and the L6 Link and the flexibilitity those have while combined with the Helix, but I also love having real guitar amps which can always be used if someone would ever drop over my place with their guitar to jam. What do you guys think?
