phil_m Posted December 30, 2019 Share Posted December 30, 2019 Just now, kringle said: OK, this hits on a lot of it that I can't get figure out how to compensate for the shift from home to live. I use the interface with a pair of Presonus E44 studio monitors for all my patch building. This gives me great dynamics and range and the quality and consistency is always there. Then it's as you describe when shifting to Live it goes south in many ways depending on where. 1/2 our live events we use a Mackie mixer and brand new EV's EKX-15P which are FRFR. the other half can be FOH or other PA systems. So where does the Powercab come into play? Are you using that live? As long as the output levels from your presets are roughly similar, it really shouldn't be that big of a deal hooking up to different PA systems. You'd want to use whatever believe is your loudest sound when doing soundcheck and make sure that the channel you're plugging into is set up for that. I'm not sure what you're experiencing, but I'm not sure I'd be so quick to blame it on the Helix. I mean, if you're setting up your tones in isolation, it's always possible that a tone sounds OK on its own but not so great in the mix. I think we've all had that experience. It's happened to me with real amps... I just think that the fact that you're using so many different patches is complicating things for you. You'd probably be better off consolidating some. If your guitar tone is varying greatly from song to song, you're not doing the soundguy any favors either. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
