talonmm Posted July 22, 2019 Share Posted July 22, 2019 Prior to ver. 2.8, I still used my dt amps with the L6 cable connected to the Helix and dt amp. With the gain down, I found the amp and helix worked well together, and I was quite pleased with the various tones they produced. The clean tones, light overdrive tones, and heavy overdrive tones all sounded fine without having to send midi codes to the amp. I was looking forward to the 2.8 upgrade to see the two units work even better together. Now that 2.8 is here, when I hook up the Helix and DT amp, they sound fine, but the amp's controls - such as gain, class a/b, pentode/triode and the I-IV voicings still are able to be modified on the amp controls. I thought that 2.8 helix firmware would take control of the amp in the way the old hd500 hardware did. Yes I realize the architecture in the Helix and HD500 hardware are very different and exact integration in the Helix is not possible, but am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to disable the amp's preamp functions for better integration? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
