Zaiten Posted December 12, 2015 Share Posted December 12, 2015 Hi. I bought an HD500X a week ago. I was happy until I asked myself "dual chains are great ...but what about four chains? O_o". Enter helix. Can I process two guitars, one bass and a voice with it? I only need two ins: one 1/4 line and one mic XLR. I play bass split into three chains/outputs: one goes into a bass amp. Two go through an Octave-up & harmonizers into dual guitar amps. Sounds like White Stripes, Royal Blood and Black Sabbath put in a blender. Can I assign four chains and four separate outputs? Like this: XLR IN (mic) â€¢ CHAIN 1: VOCALS: doubler, vocoder, harmony, rev, limiter. Output: XLR (L) BASS IN (1/4 jack routed to three chains): â€¢ CHAIN 2: BASS SOUNDS: fuzz, comp, octave down, amp. Output: XLR ® â€¢ CHAIN 3: GUITAR L: octave up, harmonizer, dist, amp. Output: 1/4 (L) â€¢ CHAIN 4: GUITAR R: octave up, fuzz, amp. Output: 1/4 ® ALL OUTPUTS TO F.O.H. MIXER. Alternatively, is it also possible to have another three outputs to feed stage bass and guitar amplifiers? Maybe repurpose the headphone jack or the send/returns for this purpose?
