luedmo Posted April 18, 2016 Share Posted April 18, 2016 Hello Everyone New to Helix, so far so good with the sounds slowly exploring Meanwhile, here are some small observations/comments about some basic tools to make Helix more useable. If it's been covered in another thread, apologies. 1. level VU/meter ================== There is no way to get a visual check would to â€œseeâ€ if any signal is getting through at different points (e.g. maybe the lead is not working? maybe there is a patch setting in a FX which has a level switched to 0 etc.]. In live situations you need to check levels *before* you make a noise, not during the singerâ€™s introduction/pastorâ€™s sermon etc.. We cannot do stuff on the fly unless we mute our amps and put on headphones. Impractical. We cannot "see" the amount of compression attentuation etc.. we have chosen idea: level meters at different stages of the chain 2. tuner ================== My Petersen strobo-tuner is *very* accurate, especially so for difficult and double stringed instruments which need high-level resolution. The Helix easily has the DSP resources to achieve this degree of accuracy but the current tuner is pretty basic and I never can be sure it is reading back true. idea: why not implement at least Â±0.1c and also give some better visual feedback? 3. Mono button ================== We cannot check for phase issues and test the â€œstereoâ€ imaging idea: a MONO button on the output stage 4. Metronome ================== I am playing free-time, it'd be nice to TAP the tempo and get a click idea: a metronome so we can play along Thanks All :lu Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
