USING TWO LINE 6 POWERCABS

Recommended Posts

I use a Helix floor and recently bought a Powercab plus for gigging. I like it, however, in my home setup, I use a pair of Yamaha HS8's and have usually built 'thick' guitar patches where I will pan one path hard right and the other hard left and add a 45ms delay on one and perhaps add two diff cabs (one with more bottom and one with more top) to each path. Another trick I sometimes do is add a slight pitch shift on the paths...say +6 cents on one path and -6 cents on the other. All in an effort to thicken that sound. This as I am sure you can appreciate, doesn't translate to one PC+. For the single PC+ I have rebuilt these patches by just using one path and panning it centre. Sounds great, but just not 'full' like I am used to. Not many people talk about using PC+ as a pair and not sure if this is the right way to go (including if playing live) as so many 'experts' online frown at a stereo guitar rig (although, what I described isn't stereo in the traditional sense with ping pong effects and drastic differences between left and right channel, just some tricks to fatten the sound. Any input you have on this would be soooooooo appreciated re: going PC+ times 2!!!

You could run your l6 link into the first PC+ then thru to your 2nd.  The channels will split and give you what you are looking for either full stereo or just slight variations of tone each channel or path.   The tough part is playing out. Your at the mercy of the house sound tech/person.  Each channel would have to be set up like you want. The house PA system may not be as good as your home stuff so all that trouble of tone setup would go down the drain.  Plus shlepping all that xtra gear would be a hassle.
