geomusicmart Posted September 16, 2020 Share Posted September 16, 2020 I've been studying my Helix for about a month now. My intention is to record directly into DAW using the Helix as an interface, so far so good, it works nicely. I tried a Fender Strat (single coils) first and now I'm on a PRS C24 (humbuckers). With the Fender I could dial a few clean and crunchy for rock/blues decent tones that I'm happy with, although no overly impressed with the amp/cab combinations. Now with the PRS is a different story, for the life of me I can't find decent clean and crunchy tones without them being very harsh for the bridge pickup, and the funny thing is that they sound harsh on the higher strings and muddy on the lower ones, so harsh and muddy at the same time! The heavier distortion ones I've tried sound in order to lose the muddyness on the lower frequencies end up sounding really thin. I'm thinking I'm going to have to use an amp head after the Helix and then an interface, and just use the Helix as a glorified multi effect unit. Any help will be really appreciated before I give this up. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
