PARAMETER MODULATION

Recommended Posts

Had my Helix for a few days. Is there a way, other than the expression pedal to modulate parameters ? My Boss GT100 could do this & I assumed Helix would but I cant see anything to do this. 

Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum.

 

You can assign a free stomp switch to toggle back and forth between two values of the parameter you're looking to work.

(In fact, you can further stack up a total of 8 functions that the single switch can do simultaneously - an immensely powerful customization tool).

If you're talking about something like ADSR or LFO controllers, no there's not. You can assign parameters to controllers other than the expression pedals, though. You can assign them to footswitches, snapshot controllers, or MIDI CCs from an external source.

Or volume and tone controls on your guitar if it is a Variax.

It's an unfortunate omission. External MIDI device, computer probably could modulate Helix' parameters via MIDI.

Thanks for the replies ! yes I was meaning LFO / ADSR. This does seem to be something of an omission on the feature list. I will try & use Ableton live to modulate perameters for recording but it would be an awesome feature to have for live use !!

This is the #1 thing I wish they would implement! LFO and ADSR would make Helix the badassest floor unit ever.

no way to get LFO or ADSR make random changes in yal HX N no BPM Sync ....m@n it sounds like a joke o_O

........yet very boring IMHO coz no way to spice up sonic texture !!!! (the Divider/Mixer blocks on Gt100/1K do a killer job)

Damn i can do this with my old Zoom G9 N my GT100 (2 not say Gt1K) im actually so surprised that the great Helix itself doesn't have such an antique feature 3>

I understand now why most of HX users sound in their demos so flat & linear ....except Matteo Mancuso !!! (Line6/Yamaha Endorsee)

i can control anything from a Delay FB/Time or a Drive stomp Gain/Vol. by just picking softer or harder or assigning various Wave Pedals (not just one type!)

maybe in 2021 it is not true anymore ? Does anybody can confirm this fact...

No need to resurrect three different threads with this...

 

What is the question?  I'd like to help.
