Help with multitrack recording

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to record my guitar (guitar in) and my bassist(aux in) simultaneously and sending the output to spdif panned left and right.     During our songs I switch to different patches. I'm not using snapshots.  I think I have the separate paths for each instrument sorted out however here's my question. 

 

For the bass,  do I need a separate path  in each of the patches that I switch to during the song or is there a way, for example, to have some global setting to have aux in always go to spdif left regardless of what patch that I switch to?   Otherwise I sounds like I have to set a path for the bass in each of my patches. 

 

Also, is there going to be a slight pause in the bass when I switch patches.

 

Thanks in advance

There is no global option for what you want to do and there will be a pause when switching presets.

Any particular reason why you're not using snapshots? Using them would remove the pause and effectively provide the global option you're looking for.

I'm assuming this is for jamming/demo/songwriting purposes? What I've found to work best is to have path 1 be guitar, path 2 bass, and use very minimal FX and snapshot switching. If this is "serious" recording, just track separately so you can each take full advantage of the Helix DSP.

I suspected that I would have to go the snapshot route, but being lazy, I never got into them and have all my songs sorted separate patches.  Looks like I'll have to delve into the snapshots at bit.  I've been putting it off.  Good to know the pause will go away.
