Does a bypassed filter color the tone?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm a bass player; I noticed that if I put the Tron Up filter in my signal path it seems to suck some low end when bypassed. Has anyone else had the same experience? Thank you & happy 4th!

No. Here's a test Preset. Press FS11 to A/B the two signal paths.

Maybe there's something else in your signal path that's causing it.

It could do if you have the I/P impedance set to auto and the Tron simulates a different value to the standard 1M

Input Impedance: 1 megohm at lowest setting of GAIN control, variable to 3.3K ohms at maximum gain setting

The easiest fix is to set the input impedance for the patch to 1M.

Thank you!

You're welcome,

There's lots of threads on here about Helix's input impedance settings and it's expected (and unexpected) consequences.
