sheehanje Posted March 26, 2016 Share Posted March 26, 2016 I am using my Helix for a couple things - one is as a modeler for bedroom recording. Most importantly though, I use it 4 cable method with my Mesa Mark V. I have an M13 too, but I find the helix has higher quality effects for the most part. One annoyance, and I'm thinking it's probably something easy I'm overlooking is the volume control on the unit. Can I fix my volume and not use that knob? It's just odd to me and seems to easy to knock out, especially in a live gig. I could've swore it was off before, but after getting my unit back from service (squeaky expression pedal) I noticed my amp was really quiet and found the volume knob was turned down on the Helix. I don't want the Helix to control my overall volume, I want my amp to do that. Is there any good readings on 4CM other than the very basics? The M13 seemed a bit easier (and it should be because it was purpose built for it) - but like I said, I think the Helix is a little higher quality and I also like the built in expression pedal - one of the better ones I've used. M y requirements are pretty simple - noise gate, delay, chorus, occasional wah/volume swell and phaser. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
