ScottAyers Posted March 19, 2016 Author Share Posted March 19, 2016 Op didn't mention tweaking the pre delay on the reverb. Of course the guitar is going to sound distant if the reverberations arrive very soon after the dry guitar, puts them both at a similar distance. Cranking up the pre delay puts the guitar right in your face. You have the choice of everything in between, how it should be. With my GNX4 and my VTS's this behavior does not happen anywhere near as much. The guitar does not get pushed into the background so drastically. On the Helix. The guitar source gets pushed back more than I like. And it's next to impossible to bring back in front again with EG or any other settings. It's not an EQ problem. The pedal just isn't hot enough for me. Not enough presence. Not enough crispness. Not enough source sound. Not enough Drive. Or whatever adjective you choose to call it. I would need to use external reverbs and other equipment to overdrive the pedal's sound into something I liked. And that would make no sense. At this point I'm just repeating myself over and over. So I would prefer stop here. Talking about the same things I didn't like over and over with forum members seems more like complaining, than constructive feeback. I've said everything that I want to say about why I returned it. It's up to the company now to use my feeback, or toss it in the garbage bin. It was nice chatting with you guys. I just want to stop saying negative things at this point. Enough is enough. -ScottA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
