Matchig the Helix LT volume level in the signal flow chain

Recommended Posts

Before buying Helix LT, I have used a regular pedal board. I always adjusted the volume level between the stomp boxes so that turning on/off any of them did not affect the significant change in the overall volume of the channel. In connection with this, there are several questions ...


1. Is it possible to use the same approach for Helix LT by changing the Level parameter of the built-in stomp boxes?
2. At the end of the signal flow chain (the arrow at the output) it is also possible to adjust the Level in dB. Does this parameter have the same effect on the channel volume as the Ch Vol parameter in the AMPs settings?

It's absolutely the same both for adjusting effects as well as the overall signal chain.  I personally prefer to manage the overall volume using the channel volume on the amp model, but the output block works in a similar fashion for adjusting overall volume without affecting the tone of the preset.  Of course since each amp is a mathematical simulation of the amp's circuitry, the volume levels will differ as do the real amps, but I've never had a problem maintaining a consistent volume across different amps.

Then something strange happens when I use the Blue Comp in the chain, which is BOSS CS-1 in real life. I'm trying to achieve the same volume level of the chain as when it is turned on, as when it is turned off. This is achieved only when I set the value of the parameter Level of this effect to 23. But in this case, when it is turned on, the effect becomes lost completely even the Sustain level is at maximum.

Please, advise what is wrong.

Is there anything else in the signal chain that might be making a difference? Perhaps you could attach the patch and let others check it out?
