Using helix with a active bass

Recommended Posts

I connected my bass on the Helix for the first time yesterday, the bass is a yamaha RBX800A, it is a bass with active pickups so I connected it to the Aux port(like the manual says), all the default bass presets seem to miss some punch and volume, I had the crank to volume a lot more than with my guitars, anyone else tested a active bass on the helix and got the same results ? Or maybe you got good presets to share, I am looking for the Flea tone and also geddy lee's tone

hmmm  - my active Ibanez works good on the guitar input. I even did'nt have to engage the input pad but i guess that the Ibanez electronics don't boost much, it's more a kind of active tone control. I have no idea why the aux input should be better?

The AUX input has 10MΩ .

Anyway, I got better results (with all my active instruments) using the adjusted regular guitar input.
