HX Stomp as Helix backup for guitar and keyboard

Recommended Posts

Can the HX Stomp have separate inputs and outputs for its two paths?

 

I would like to use an HX Stomp as a backup for my Helix (as well as a bass rig).

 

My current rig is working very well:
- Variax (VDI to Helix VARIAX)
- Keyboard (unbalanced to Helix RETURN 1)
- Helix (L6LINK, XLR L/MONO, and MIDI to Powercab Plus; XLR RIGHT to PA)
- Powercab Plus (OUTPUT to PA)

 

I use two paths in the Helix for guitar and keyboard.

 

The Powercab Plus uses Input 1 FRFR or speaker models for the guitar path and uses Input 2 monitor mode for the keyboard path.

 

The PA gets the guitar signal from the Powercab Plus and the keyboard signal from the Helix.

 

The Helix and Powercab Plus give me:
- Separate inputs from guitar and keyboard
- Separate paths for guitar and keyboard
- Separate outputs to Powercab Plus for guitar and keyboard
- Separate outputs to PA for guitar and keyboard
- All mono

 

As a backup for the Helix, will I be able to use the HX Stomp like this?
- Variax (unbalanced to HX Stomp INPUT L/MONO, Path A)
- Keyboard (unbalanced to HX Stomp RETURN/AUX IN L/MONO, Path B)
- HX Stomp
 -- SEND LEFT (Path A) to Powercab Plus INPUT 1 (custom cable TRS to TS)
 -- OUTPUT L/MONO (Path B) to Powercab Plus INPUT 2 (TRS to XLR)
 -- OUTPUT RIGHT (Path B) to PA (TRS to XLR)
 -- MIDI to Powercab Plus
- Powercab Plus (OUTPUT to PA)

 

Is there another HX Stomp configuration that would give me this?
- Separate inputs from guitar and keyboard
- Separate paths for guitar and keyboard
- Separate outputs to Powercab Plus for guitar and keyboard
- Separate outputs to PA for guitar and keyboard
- All mono

 

Thanks!

I think you can do all of that.  From the manual:

TIP: Okay, this one's for the power users: If you move a Split > Y block all the way left, set its BalnceA to "L100" and its BalnceB to "R100," you can process the L/MONO and RIGHT inputs independently. In addition, if you route the Mixer block to Path B (Send L/R), you can process two instruments simultaneously, each with its own mono input, stereo processing, and stereo outputs!

 

I tried this with a guitar and bass and it worked fine.
