fenderbenderlax Posted June 20, 2019 Share Posted June 20, 2019 Hello all, I have been toying with getting some synth sounds out of my rig. I have a Fishman Triple Play (FTP) unit and have the trial version of the Midi Guitar 2 with jam origin. My big problem is getting the routing straightened out with the helix as my main sound source. Let me explain this in a bit more detail What am I trying to achieve? My main idea is to have my core guitar patch coming out of the helix as being the dominant sound but occasionally use synth sounds for certain parts of the song (e.g. the synth part in Rebel Yell by Billy Idol). I had a look at several youtube videos. For example, this video here demonstrates pretty much what I would like to achieve with this set up The routing I use is slightly different from the video above. In my case, the Guitar with FTP -> Helix; Helix USB and FTP dongle --> Powered USB hub; Powered USB hub--> Camera connection kit adapter into the IPAD. The outputs from the helix (1/4) goes into my FRFR. Problem: My big problem is that I'm unable to separate the synth and the guitar. I would like to be able to separate the two sounds and also maybe even integrate them using an expression pedal. In the video above, it looks like Mark activates the synth sound by using a foot switch. However, my midi programming skills are virtually non existent, so any direction on how that can be programmed in would be great. Another alternative that I have considered is using Jam Origin's Midi Guitar 2. I only have the trial version but my feeling is that the FTP is superior with respect to tracking and latency but I'm might be completely wrong. Nevertheless, again I found this youtube video which I thought was fairly straightforward to implement. The routing in this case seems fairly easy. My guitar goes into the helix. The Helix USB is connected to the camera connection kit and the outputs (1/4 inch) goes into my FRFR. Problem: I pretty much did exactly as shown in the video where I create two parallel paths with the Y split assigned to an expression pedal. However, again I'm unable to separate the signals between the guitar and the synth sounds. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here either. Any help on routing in either/both of these cases is much appreciated. Thanks folks!!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
