Helix Compressor settings for acoustic guitar

Recommended Posts



  Lovin' my Helix, and I love how it makes my acoustic sound. Compressor + Tube Preamp + Reverb. I am not a novice with compressors, but clearly not an expert either. I have been using the LA comp, but I don't get the parameters (and I read the others stuff on the forum about that). Maybe I'll try the Deluxe Comp too.


  Anyway, I do a combination of fingerpicking and strumming, so a compressor evens out those levels very nicely. And I like how the multi-band comp on the Boss CP-1X selectively compresses certain (mystery) frequencies. I wish I could get that sort of multi-band comp for Helix. I know there is a 3 band comp, but I have no idea how to set it.


  If you have suggested comp settings for acoustic guitar, please share.
