Transposing/downtuning in Helix - Digitech Drop-like

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to transpose/downtune in Helix? Kind of like in the case of Digitech Drop.

DigiTech's Drop does polyphonic pitch shifting, which Helix doesn't currently have. Try assigning a Pitch/Synth > Simple Pitch block to a momentary footswitch.

Like DI says though, the simple pitch block is not polyphonic just so you are aware.

Perhaps the most enlightening portion of DI's post is what I have emphasized in Bold Italics.

Lol...Good afternoon, folks! I'd like to welcome you all to another episode of "Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't"...;)

 

I eagerly await the wild speculation about a forthcoming (?) polyphonic pitch-shifter which is sure to follow...

TC Electronic Polytune has a polyphonic tuner, just saying...

 

If we are going to speculate, might as well start a crap storm.

DI typically selects his words carefully. Nonetheless, he has been known to fan the fire. Polyphonic Helix capabilities have been a frequent request on IdeaScale and have been mentioned in plenty of discussions on the various Helix forums. Time will tell. In the meanwhile (before 2.4 or 3.0 arrive), why not be optimistic?

Well that's bullcrap. Nice to know that you pretty much just hate all your customers. We know Ben Adrian could model one in about 4 days.

Nice cover DI! :) Ah, yes! With the nearly endless adjectives describing sounds tones, who is to say that nobody has ever depicted what they are trying to get tone wise out of a Helix Preset configuration is as smooth, rich, robust, and almost a coffee-like creamy cappucino/latte tone. ;)

 

I'm comfortable letting my optimism persist, to see what Helix 2018 brings....

Do you mind implementing a switch to select Italian cappuccino? :)

DI loves to hear about suggestion for more Global Settings Options. Now he could specify Global Settings > Territory ;)

Pitch Whammy does fine on single note riffs, but sadly you need The Drop in a loop for chords. I do have one, but then you need to adjust The Drop for different intervals and it is a pain to remember at a show.
