HX Stomp "out" options...

Recommended Posts

Can i get one output with a cab (ir) and another without? i want to send one to the loop return of my combo (the one without cab/ir) and the other one, with everything to front of house.

How do i do it?

Thanks!

The stomp has two paths... you just need to move the IR to the 2nd path then adjust the output block. 

  1. Place the IR as the last block in the chain, then DROP It to Path B.
  2. Leave the split block at it's default settings (split Y)... it should work fine.
  3. On the output block... pan Path A to Output Left and pan Path B to Output Right
  4. Plug Output Left (no IR) to your amp
  5. plug Output right (w/IR) to a DI to FOH

Can you do the same thing and put output of path B to Stereo send out and change it to Line level - and use a TRS to dual mono cable  (or to XLR's) and into FOH mixer?

Use an FX Loop block and rout the signal to a "send"

 

TBH... that is always my first choice... but I also use a Helix. 

With a stomp that burns one of the six precious blocks... so I always reach for other solutions when possible.

yes, that would take a block! also, the global eq, which i use, does not go out to "send"

delays and reverb do not sound as good before the IR.....(IR at last block)

If you think about your setup... the delay and reverb heading to your AMP (path without IR) is also before the speaker... isn't it? 

 

It's really all a matter of taste. With a product like a Helix you have the ability to apply effects the way you might in a studio but that doesn't mean you have to.  You can still apply them the way every guitar player has always done with traditional amp setups over the years. Common practice is to place those effects in the effects loop of an amp which is between "Pre-Amp & Power Amp" which are certainly before the speaker (ir). Not to mention, any amp with built in reverb has it placed in the same position... always before the speaker.
