Helix 4CM advice

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble using Helix in 4CM into a tube amp. The core tone with no effects on is louder, brighter and sterile souding compared to guitar straight to amp. However, when I use Helix through the effects loop only for reverb and delay the amps core tone is exactly the same (guitar straight into amp input). The problem is when I use the Helix into the front of the amp input. I have set the Helix outputs to instrument but it's still not sounding right.

 

What's the best in/outs and settings for 4CM you have found to preserve the amps core tone? Amp is a Mesa Boogie Express 5:25+

Experiment with the impedance settings for the input on helix and see if that helps, you can also experiment with the send and return gain settings on the fx loop.

If the dry guitar through Helix is louder that just the guitar by itself, then you may need to set your 1/4" output to INSTRUMENT not LINE. I think the default is LINE.
