mitch103 Posted February 28, 2016 Share Posted February 28, 2016 Hey everyone, i've had my helix for a couple months now and i really like it so far. Im kind of a noob so bare with me, I might need some annoyingly simple things explained. Im playing a PRS Tremonti USA guitar and im running out of 2 (new) adam a7x monitors and using the XLR outs from the helix. I've noticed that when im sitting directly in front of my monitors a few feet away playing through amp models like the cali, bomber uber, etc. just jamming power chords and palm muting that the sound comes out very fuzzy. I make my signal chain basically just the amp head with the default cab and i've been putting a shure sm57 mic model 1" away but I dont know how to adjust the amp's parameters such as gain, mids, etc. to get rid of the excessive fuzziness. I also am having a hard time understanding what the user manual says regarding the bias and bias x, etc. type parameters so ive just left them alone. I've noticed that if I stand up and back away from the monitors it seems to sound a bit better and clearer. I've noticed a lot of you guys use eq's and ir's in your signal paths but im just not understanding quite yet how that all affects the tone. I know im asking a lot and that ive got a lot to learn still but any advice or input I could get I would really appreciate! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
