Having trouble getting my Helix Rack stereo effects in stereo

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I was wondering if anyone else is having trouble using the 1/4" outputs or SPDIF output to get L/R stereo effects output? My stereo effects work only they output in mono in both cases. There is no stereo separation between left and right channels....not sure what i am doing wrong here.

 

Thanks....

I mention it because it happened to me but make sure every block following your stereo effect is stereo. I had drop a simple volume pedal without paying attention and it was mono. I even used that patch as a template so I had to change quite a few....

I use 1/4 and spdif with no stereo issues (as I'm sure everyone will say).  I'm using spdif now - I took a blank preset and did nothing except put a ping pong delay in it and it's stereo.  I use the Helix Editor and the input and output are multi.  Have you started from scratch like this to find the issue?  I also use an audio interface and once my 1/4 inputs magically went from L and R to the middle and it took me a while to think of checking that.

Hello Doug6String....i did not try starting a new preset from scratch....i will do that tonight when i have time in the studio again....interesting that you saw this issue yourself in the past....did you figure out why it happened? I am running my Helix outputs into a Roland Octacapture audio interface.

Just remember that any blocks going before the amp/preamp blocks will be processed into a mono signal afterwards.  In other words, you're wasting valuable DSP power on any stereo blocks before the amp/preamp blocks.
