PapaTongue Posted November 23, 2015 Share Posted November 23, 2015 Hi All, I'm currently using a TC Nova System for effects only and midi control center. One of the biggest problems with the Nova is that it is so slow to change patches (you have to hold the button down, wait for the new patch to load, then it engages on button release) which makes it a nightmare for live use. I would like to switch to Helix but am interested to know the following... 1. How fast are the patch/stomp changes when a footswitch is pressed and is activated on button press or release? 2. I love my Morley wah which auto engages and would want to keep it in the rig and use the helix expression pedal for volume/whammy only. I always have my wah pedal first in the chain but what would be the best placement fur use with the helix (ie before the helix input or in one of the helix loops)? 3. In 4CM since the signal always goes through the AD/DA conversion process is there any point in using analog pedals in the loop (ie OD etc) or would it better to just to use the inbuilt digital distortion/dynamic effects instead? I guess what i'm asking here is will your favourite analog pedals still sounds as they should once they've gone through the AD/DA processing? Thanks.
