Helix LT into effects return of amp

Recommended Posts

Even if I turn off the cab and IR, still not getting a good sound going into the effects return of my Boogie MKIV powering a recto 4x12 (I had an AX8 and it sounded AMAZING this way..)   What am I missing here??  I prefer cab sims (when going direct) that are V30 4x12, so why is it not working??  ..or should I say not sounding good.  I have seen others on youtube do this and sounds awesome (just watched  aguy plug into the effects return of a 5150III50w head and cab and it sounded ferocious!!  (He didn't specify his settings)  So I know it can be done, but I feel like Im missing something..???!?!?!

What amps/effects/preamps/pedals are you running into the Mk IV?  

 

For a starting point, you should really start with a Helix preamp model only, and then add pedals.  Don't use a full-blown amp model, amp&cab or cab - you already have a real power amp and cab.  Also, try the Helix output settings with both "line out" and "instrument". 

 

Hope this helps...

Not running any pedals, just using the MKIV as a power amp... I also run it into 2 studio monitors (downloaded Freman Big Pack, sounds KILLER)..Just trying to have a few patches setup for live this way (for fun).. I have a Mission Eng G1 in route
