rpossum Posted July 24, 2018 Share Posted July 24, 2018 This may sound crazy, but is anyone using hx effects and helix together? As amazingly versatile as the Helix is, I still find myself getting into a jam and wanting to go for a certain effect that's not in the preset I'm using at the moment. Generally in that moment, I've built up to a huge tone with 4 - 6 effects on and switching to another preset just to get to the AutoWah or Pitch Down is just not feasible) In the past, I found that having a 2nd multi FX pedal in the mix was great because I always had access to certain "pedals" no matter what overall preset I was in. So this got me thinking, what if I just got an HX Effects and ran it in one of the effects loops on the Helix? That would allow me to keep, let's say, all my reverbs, delays, mods etc... everything that goes together in the chain (I run a 4-cable setup)... in one place and always available. Seems like this would also give me a lot more flexibility in my overall preset and snapshots as well... and I assume I could connect them via MIDI to send tap and any other controls I might want... in case I did happen to have a preset where I wanted to change parameters on a delay on the other pedal ot something... And the more I think about it, with several footswitches freed up on the Helix, I'd free up a switch or two that could be used for things like momentary 100% feedback on a delay etc Anyone tried this?
