different input levels per preset?

Recommended Posts

is it possible to store individual input levels per preset, so i can switch between electric and acoustic...?

thanks

The levels for the 1/4" inputs are global settings. You'd be better off using the Aux in for your acoustic. If you truly need a line level input for the acoustic, you would want to use one of the 1/4" returns. I've used an acoustic with a preamp with my HD500 many times, and I've always been fine just going into either the guitar in or aux in. And I believe the Helix inputs have more headroom than the HD500.

thanks,

but the aux input inpedance is not 1 kohm, right...?

sorry...i meant 1 megohm of course...so can somebody verify if it´s 1 megohm then...?

I believe the Aux in is 1 Mohm. With something like a signal from an acoustic guitar, the input impedance is really not important, though. It becomes an issue with magnetic pickups, but you should be fine with an acoustic. The only issue would be if it's just too hot.

If your acoustic employs a built in preamp with Battery , the Aux input on Helix should be OK even if it has typical 20K impedance ,

Edit FWIW HD500 Aux input has 1Meg impedance , I expect the same on Helix.

The Aux In is 10 Ohm 10 kOhm. It's designed for very hot pickups, or even a line-level signal. If you're looking for additional instrument inputs, the Returns are your best bet—they can be set to instrument level and then selected as one of your four paths' input blocks.

 

EDIT: Since Helix's guitar input has 123dB of dynamic range, and the HX audio engine is 32-bit floating point, there's no issue with running a Volume/Pan > Gain block right after the Input block to control input volume per preset.

Hey, I was only off by 999,990 Ohms... :blink:

Now that's innovation! ( or a typo?) or perhaps 10k Ohm ?
