pete1975 Posted November 28, 2018 Share Posted November 28, 2018 ok,so ive got my helix set up to have 2 amps blended(mesa dual and sheba) in the top 2 lines in parallel and that goes to my 1/4" line output to a powerstage 170 power amp into my cab. This is my heavy sound and sounds perfect,literally after 25 years of playing valve amps,every head there is blah blah this is the perfect sound and rig. Now,the bottom 2 lines take up effects and my clean amp (jc-120),one line goes to 1/4" out and a line coming off that goes out of send 1 to p.a. system (to save micing). Now,the sound im getting out the real cab is spot on gain wise but the sound im getting direct has very little gain,i suppose my real cab is giving me speaker distortion and edge etc. Ive tried different I.R's etc and although some sound better they dont add the distortion im getting from the real cab and my direct sound is very dull,no eq etc seems to help. Ive tried upping the gain on my amps and this helps direct but then messes up my real cab sound. Any ideas? Yeh,i could run seperate amps for live and direct but as im using 2 amps in dual and a seperate clean i cant add anymore to the chains. cheers guys Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
