nkozicole Posted May 20, 2021 Share Posted May 20, 2021 Heya! First time here - I'm new to the Helix series, having bought the Effects a few months back to use as my pedal hub. I'm trying to do something that should be pretty simple - run two inputs in stereo to the pedal, and then have two outputs in stereo. Issue I'm having is that for some reason, the R input on the HX seems not to be getting signal from whatever pedal is going into it! Left works great, and I'm getting a stereo output as well as the send/return in stereo, as planned, but for reasons unknown to me only one thing I'm running in is audible. The worst part is that I'd somehow managed to fix this in my first round of troubleshooting, but it was a fluke and I neglected to save haha. Any help is appreciated! For extra clarity I'll also put details of the routing in a spoiler tag below. Spoiler Okay! So, I'm running stereo and ampless - I have a mono signal going into an Ibanez DML10, which splits the signal into dry and wet even when bypassed. Right (dry) goes to an EAE Model feT, and Left to a DSM Simplifier. Each of their outputs (the 'send' jack in case of the DSM) goes to the respective input on the HX. I've got a Tensor and a DD-500 hooked up stereo I/O in the HX's send/return, and confirmed that they're outputting a stereo signal back to the HX. The stereo outs of the HX then go to the L/R returns on the DSM, and then out to an interface for now. I did a simple test and swapped around what input went where, and just confirmed using the volume knobs on the pedals before the HX that it's only the left input that's taking signal. This is also occurring no matter what stereo block I have inserted or activated (though I thought the HX would have a stereo bypass due to it's I/O. Someone on reddit said: One thing to check is that the send/return block is stereo as well by default it is mono. Another thing to double check is if you have a looper in the chain that it too is stereo I did make sure to do this - Even with no blocks in the chain OR only stereo blocks, I'm getting the same behavior, where instead of passing through both inputs, the Right input is being ignored.
