Helix Floor with Mission Engineering Expression Pedals

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I am a fairly new Helix Floor and Helix Native owner and am wanting to purchase one or two Mission Engineering expression pedals for wah and other effects while using the built-in Helix expression pedal for volume.  There appears to be two different models that are offered for Line 6 products (SP1-L6H and the EP1-L6).  The only difference I can tell is the ability to use the toe switch to turn the effect(s) on and off.  This is exactly what I am looking to do, but the SP1-L6H only seems to be fully-functional with the Helix Rack.  The EP1-L6 appears to be for other Line 6 products without the toe switch feature.

 

Since the SP1-L6H is designed specifically for the Helix, will I be able to use this pedal to turn wah on and off without having to dedicate the a stomp button on the Helix Floor itself?  My assumption is no since there is not an expression pedal switch input on the Helix Floor.  Just want to to confirm.  I appreciate anyone's help.  Thank you.

 

Thanks,

David

"My assumption is no since there is not an expression pedal switch input on the Helix Floor."

 

That is correct.

 

I bought the one with the switch, anyway. It might come in handy some time in the future.

Thank you for answering my question.  I just wanted to be sure.   I was thinking about doing the same even if the functionality isn't there with the Helix Floor.

With the auto-engage feature, you can control the bypass states of blocks with the expression pedal even without the toe switch. So, no, you don't have to dedicate a stomp on the floor to control the on/off state of the wah. You can use an external expression pedal as a switchless wah, essentially.

I sincerely appreciate that feedback, Phil.  Very helpful.  Thanks!
