Change Amps / Variax setup recording mid-song


Recommended Posts

I use my Helix exclusively for studio use. I would like to try something when using my Variax to record - Variax forum suggested I check here. Scenario:

I am using the Variax Strat (Spank) model on a track while recording using the lead pickup during the song intro. I want to switch to the "trap" position (bridge and middle pickup) during the verse and record /use automation to do that instead of stopping the recording at the end of the intro and changing the HD software to the "trap" position - then punching in that config in the verse. Can the Helix software do that somehow?  HD software cannot as far as I can tell.  Midi data perhaps?

Setup: Variax > Helix Rack > DAW (Logic /ProTools).

You can use Snapshots to do that. No need to stop recording when you want to switch the settings - just use a footswitch to change snapshots.


The use of Snapshots is well documented in the latest Helix manual.

Can i use Snapshots  to change guitar models Variax?
