Helix LT Newbie - Multiple Effects to One Button?

Hi - 

 

Relative newbie here. I have set up a new patch using a US Deluxe Normal with a little drive, great clean tone that just gets to breakup. Before that in the chain, I'm using send-receive out to a drive pedal that I really like, with the drive low but the volume high, to really push the US Deluxe and it works really great, sounds wonderful. (I realize I could prob do this with the Minotaur just as easily, since i'm mostly using the pedal to push the volume). 

 

However, my issue is that (of course) when I bring in the drive pedal it doesn't just raise the crunch, but it really raises the volume a fair amount. Is there a way to push the amp without raising the volume as much? I could obviously turn the volume down on the pedal, but that'd result in pushing the amp less and lose some of the great crunch. I thought of maybe adding a volume effect later in the chain after the amp and reducing the volume and tying that to the same foot switch/button, not entirely sure how to do that. Maybe there's another/better way to do this?

 

I certainly don't mind a little volume boost, but right now it's too much. (Makes things sound really quiet/flat when I turn it off).

 

Any help appreciated.

Snapshots are your friend, here. You could make a snapshot in which you activate the pedal and lower the amps channel volume, for example. Good luck!

 

Or, assuming that you're "bringing in" the OD by toggling the FX Loop Block, assign that button to the Output Block (or Channel Volume on the Amp) also and set the MIN (OFF) to 0db (unity) and the MAX (ON) to minus whatever you need.
