Two Tube Amps into Helix both in 4CM

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone new to the forum,

 

I would like to know how can I connect two tube amps both in 4CM to my helix. I have one 6505+ and an ENGL invader that I would like to use with my helix. I tried using helix’s fx loop 1 for the peavey--> output L and helix’s fx loop 2 for the ENGL--> output R. At this point everything sound fine at low volume, but every time I increase the volume using the big volume knob I get a loud feedback noise that is not present when only one amp is connected to the helix, maybe I’m connecting something wrong.

 

Thank you for your help

Have you looked at the stock Templates? I don't recall the names of the Presets, but, there are Templates in the Helix Templates for using multiple amps.

This is an excellent video, as are all of Richie C's videos. HIGHLY recommended. Go to YouTube and search "Richie Castellano". Watch them all. They are great.

I believe the 7CM template handles two amps, as opposed to 4CM for one amp.

Posts above cover most of the ground you'd need.

Currrently working through routing w/ a OneControl OC10 (using the helix to control midi) using two amps and a smattering of pedals. Seems to be working great at the moment...quite fun to have two distinctly different OT signatures on one tone. 

 

Ping me if you have any specific questions on how/what I'm doing.
