Can I run a guitar and keyboard through Helix into a PowerCab Plus at the same time?

Recommended Posts

I'm running my electric guitars through Helix Floor into a PowerCab + using L6 Link.  This gives me the ability to have some patches set up where I take advantage of the PC+'s speaker modeling, and others where it's FRFR and I use Its or the cab models in Helix.

 

I recently got an analog synthesizer and am wondering if it's possible to simultaneously run it through the Helix for effects only and then into the PC+ in FRFR mode?  Can this be done while also running guitar through Helix and into the PC+ set to a speaker model?  So in other words, guitar and synth going through Helix with their own discrete signal paths, PC+ providing FRFR output for the synth and speaker modeling for he guitar.

 

Hope my question is clear.

 

Thanks!

The Helix can handle the 2 signals thru it but the powercab will only do one thing...... you would need a second powercab from a different output from the helix for the keyboard

Thanks for the reply.  As it so happens, I also have a PowerCab 112 (non-Plus), so I could do as you suggest.  How would I set up the Helix to accommodate both instruments at once?

You could use path 1A for the guitar blocks and output 1A to the digital output using L6 link cable to powercab plus.........

Then use path 2A for keyboard blocks and use 

XLR output for path 2A or you could use 1/4" 

Out for the keyboard to connect to regular powercab.
