Why can't I move this block to the second line

The DSP allocation filter (the thing that grays out items in the model list) is different for each Path/DSP. They don't talk to each other; that is, DSP 2's allocation filter can't tell DSP 1 "Hey, you won't fit over here!"

 

At one point Helix had two completely different home screens—one for each DSP. It was done that way specifically to dissuade people from moving a block from one path to the other. In the end we decided "Nah, let's just explain it if people ask."

 

It's something we could add with some effort. It's on our list, but way down because copy/paste (coming soon for the editor) is such an easy workaround.

Thanks for all the replies guys.

It would be nice to not have think of two DSP (as an user) until you run out of CPU or something like that. If the Helix would just manage the blocks on the best optimal way automatically it would take that part of management from the user and the interface would be more intuitive. IMHO.

 

It's really not a big deal ... thanks so much for the replies.

FWIU, SHARCs don't deal with shuttling audio back and forth very easily without incurring latency. TigerSHARCs (like those in AxeFX II XL+) work much better in this regard. This was probably four years ago, but we had many weeks of conversations/debates about it—in the end, there was no easy way to make two SHARCs appear as one big DSP without artificially crippling model allocation or routing, and that eventually led to the Path 1/Path 2 paradigm.

 

So when some people say "just throw more DSPs in there!" it makes my head hurt. Dual-DSP systems are much more complicated than single DSP systems.
