AndyTheDude Posted August 30, 2019 Share Posted August 30, 2019 Greetings, guitarists. A solo bassist here. I downloaded and used Helix Native trial some time ago. Mostly with Sonar (Cakewalk) and with Zen Audio ALK2, a new kid on the block live-looping DAW. I've recently bought Ableton after finding ALK2 too unreliable, buggy and undeveloped. I want to start playing gigs as a solo bass artist, live looping on stage. I am considering two options: 1) Helix Rack. Pros: a physical piece of gear that can be sold easily should things go wrong with my little show. Reliable. Can be used as an audio interface. All ins/outs I need to get this show on the road. Cons: outrageously high latency (~20ms I believe). Pricey. 2) Helix Native Pros: I am an ITB guy, have been working in-the-box only for the last 25 years. Less kilos to carry around compared to the rack. I could use two or three instances of the native in a project. Price difference would allow me to buy a good, low-latency interface. Cons: Price (440 euro is steep). Reliability(?) So, how's Native been for you? Any problems? Is using the Native on stage a good idea?
