octave effect

Recommended Posts

Potentially dumb question based on pure laziness but what Helix effect should I use as an octaver? I just want to use it with a lead tone to fatten it up. Also how should I set it up and where in the signal chain? Thanks

Well you may have established a new level of laziness not being able to just scroll through the effects, but oddly enough things like this are in the Pitch/Synth category of effects.  You have the simple pitch, dual pitch, and in the pitch legacy effects the Bass Octaver.  I find any of the pitch type effects work best for me after the amp and cab, but some put them between the amp and cab.  The good news is the Helix is simple enough that you can experiment with the placement to your heart's desire...unless, of course, that's also too much work for you....  ;)

Have you tried the Double Take in the Modulation area? It's supposed to "fatten" things up.

I like the legacy effect Pitch (or Simple Pitch?) for octave effects. As a bonus, I control the pitch with the pedal, giving me a decent Tom Morello impersonation.
