Skype lessons with Helix


Recommended Posts


I am approching my first guitar lesson via skype and looking for help, as I am strugglying with my audio.

I have connected my Helix via USB to an iMac on which I am running Skype. I also have headphones and mic connected to the mac via USB.

I would like to have as:

  • Input: both the mic (connected via USB) and the Helix (connected via USB), so that my teacher will be able to listen to my voice and my Helix-processed guitar
  • Output: I need to hear in my headphones (connected via USB) both the voice of the teacher and my Helix-processed guitar.

I tried to configure the mac using the multiple audio sources, but I did not even get to hearing both inputs (on skype the listener can only hear the mic or Helix, depending on which one I configure as first in the mac "audio devices" menu).


Do you have any tips for me please?

I know this is an old topic, but it's something i've been thinking about. I'm using a Mac as well. I haven't tried this (I will when I get some free time), but I think creating an Aggregate Device should work. I found this information on a resource click for info about the interests where it was described in more detail. This is a very specific topic and the setup requires a responsible approach. You should study the subject in more detail.

Thank you, very helpful.
