Add a -1octave harmony to only the E string


Recommended Posts

I don't believe you can do it as a harmony on a single string through the helix! Maybe in work bench you could fiddle about with a twelve string setting and have a lower octive as opposed to a higher octive on the 6th string? You would have to adjust the cent to 0 and the string mix so there the same volume. With all the other strings you may be able to silence the extra "fake" string. Or I could be completely wrong 🤔

you could do that with the Helix and JTV but its complicated. 

- You would set up one path with input set to Variax mags for your regular guitar tone. 

- Make a second path with input set to Variax only for the bass line. 

You have options for the second path: 

- Force the Variax low E string tuning down an octave in the Helix Input Block and set up a duplicate path with amps and FX.  Might work OK. 

- Set up a Custom Model in Workbench HD where the only string that is active is the low E tuned down an octave. Add your bass amp/cab to that path and it should be OK.
