Helix for voice effects

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am a guitarist and singer in a band.  I currently own a HD500x and rely on the PA effects for the voice.  I need more flexibility and I am considering purchasing a Helix but I wonder if it's suited for voice effects.

 

I owned a Voicelive 3 that was awesome for voice effects but I couldn't get any great guitar tone from it.

My needs are simple : reverb, radio, light disortion, maybe a "double" effect to fatten the voice.

 

Thanks for the help.  Feedback from actual singers would be nice.

Yes, it works well for this application, I've used it for vocals + acoustic guitar, with a separate path for each.

I'd be interested to know what you decide to do, as I'm thinking about similar issues.

 

One issue is whether, given the $500 price difference between Helix Floor and LT, it would be better to go with Floor to keep it simple or go with LT plus an external pre or TC-Helicon pedal.

 

Also, have you seen this?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZrJELxAbLc

Thanks for the feedback

 

@velaramon, I was also considering the LT with a preamp.

 

I ended up with a simple setup on the HD500x which works fine for now.  I'm still interested in feedback from other singers.
