phantomofalfred Posted January 27, 2018 Share Posted January 27, 2018 Greetings all, I have been using a multitude of amp modelers over the years and i have been frustrated with one in particular for the past 7 years. This has led me to come back to Line 6: The last product I used did not do it for me, but Helix has me thinking it may be time to come back. Only question i have i cannot seem to find a simple answer for. I have an over-bloated expensive as all hell, amp modeler which allows me to record a processed guitar and a dry signal "to be re amped later in software DAW" at the same time easily. Problem with it is it takes forever to tweak a usable sound out of it. Is there an easy way to assign a processed signal and Direct signal from the Helix into my interface. I do not want to use Helix for the interface. Currently with the other product I am looking to replace, it allows me to record both wet and dry out of the AES/EBU at the same time. Staying in the digital realm, No AD Conversion. If HELIX can do the same thing, i may try getting one, as i am sick of spending the majority of my time tweaking this monster with way too many choices, and want to spend more time playing my F*%king guitar. I read an article form Stevic "TFN" which really hit home. He tried the same product i currently use for 7 months, but i have been going around in a swamp of menus for 7 years. I have had enough. I just want something that I can tweak easily "Line6 has always been quick to get a good usable sound" but I need to be able to use my current interface as it is top notch. I just want to set up my patches on the HELIX to always send one processed signal to one input on my interface, and a non processed Dry signal to another input on my interface. Hopefully, both in at least 24/96 quality. Can someone with HELIX Floor experience explain? IF so, I am going to get into a row boat, row over to the other ship, try sailing it for a bit, and if it works for me and sounds good?? JUMP SHIP!!!!! HELIX FLOOR may be the best thing both for studio and gigs in the future. My current modeler is a rack and would need their proprietary expensive as hell pedal board. Sorry for the long post. I am just really frustrated trying to figure out if its possible, cause all i see is people using HELIX for their recording interface and i don't want to do that. Thanks, in advance for the help.
