How to use a Helix preamp with 4 cable method?


Recommended Posts

Hello all - maybe someone can help me out.


How should I set everything up, if I wish to use a Helix preamp with 4 cable method with my amp (that has an effects loop)?

Let's say I want to use the Archetype preamp, where should the preamp block be placed in the chain in relation to the send/return block?

And would cabels be connected the same way as you see on most 4 cable method schematics?

Thanks in advance!

Just place the Helix preamp block right next to the send/return block (in series), then toggle between the two (loop block off when preamp loop on and vice-versa).  Connections are standard 4CM.

Thanks for your answer, frodebro!


Does it matter if the preamp block is to the left or right of the send/return block?
