Specific Helix HX Effects Use

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone! I am thinking of buying the Helix Hx Effects for one purpose (among others)

 

I want to recreate the "feel" of a second guitarist, and by reading and searching other subforums here, I haven't come to an end. My way of thinking is simple

 

1. guitar to the HX

2. split the signal with a (HX) delay of eg. 20ms-1repeat in 2 amps having the 2nd amp giving back just the feedback. (the "2nd" guitarist is created)

3. Having a (HX) harmonizer on, fully panned so amp1 plays the note I am playing (dry signal) and amp2 just the "harmonized" note. (the "2nd" guitarist is playing his "seperate" part)

4. Add a new delay along with the existing one in order for both the dry and  the harmonized lead parts to sound better. (the 2nd guitarist has a tasteful sound)

5. Using something like the 4 cable method (or more) to switch the channels of both amps with a press of 1 button on the HX. (control all of  the above features in amps and HX with one button)

6. Use the distortion and clean channels on the amps and use the HX just for the effects (not the distortion modelling etc)

 

 

Is this possible?

Is there someone who has tried it?

Is there something I am missing about the connections? 

Any help and suggestions will do

 

PS. I take it for granted that the "suggestion" "find another real guitarist" has already been considered and can't work at the moment :P 

 

Thanks in advance.
