philipjoyce Posted May 4, 2016 Share Posted May 4, 2016 Im Using a Mesa Formula preamp and it has 1/4" jacks to switch Rhythm/Lead1 , Lead2 and EQ . 3 mono jacks and a regular stereo footswitch will switch between Rhythm/Lead1 and Lead2 and i assign EQ to Lead2 automatically so i figured that the Helix would be able to switch just the channels using its EXT AMP control. Now it does switch the channels but theres some weird issue where when i set a footswitch to control the Tip switching it does engage the Rhythm channel but when you turn it off it should change to Lead1 and the light does light up on the preamp but no sound comes out. If i then turn on the Ring switch it turns on Lead2 and that is fine. it seems to be an issue with the 2 channels that share the 1 1/4" jack. Very Frustrating. I'm gonna have to bring the mesa footswitch to my gig for the moment til i can figure this out. Have seen some people recommending the NUX PSM-2 Midi remote switch to switch channels via midi. Can you set a footswitch on the helix to send out midi instructions ? Thanks for any help or suggestions. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
