Use EXP pedal to control Phones volume

Recommended Posts

HI,

 

I use the Phones output of the Helix to feed into my personal in-ear monitors. There are times when I need to vary the level of my Helix in my ears. At the moment I can only do this via tweaking the phones volume pot which can get tricking with your foot! I know I could put a volume pedal in-line between the Helix and my monitors but I don't have a spare volume pedal - I do have a spare EXP pedal. Is there a way to configure the external EXP pedal to control the phones volume level?

You can create a preset in such a way that you can have one output to XLR and another to 1/4" output and insert a volume pedal block in this parallel path.

In the global settings you can make the XLR outputs not affected by the main volume knob. 

Also in the global settings you can choose which output you want to monitor in the headphones out. You can choose the 1/4" outs here.

With the volume pedal assigned to the 1/4" out path you will control the headphones volume and not the XLR outs volume.

Excellent solution! I had never noticed that you could do that in Global Settings. Makes perfect sense though.
