Cab sim just on headphone output?


Recommended Posts

I'm currently using the Helix before the preamp and in the fx loops of two amps.


It's nice to be able to use the headphone output as in-ear monitors, but of course the output sounds like a preamp.


Is it possible to run a cab sim *just* on the headphone output? An impulse response would work too of course, if that is possible.

Take a split at the end of the signal chain. Put the cab/IR in that path and set it's output block to XLR. Set the output block on your main path to 1/4".

Set Global Settings>Ins/Outs>Headphones Monitor to XLR.

This won't work if you're already using the split for that path, but also allows for using the physical XLRs to send the signal to FOH with a cab/IR if necessary.

If all of your presets are the same per I/O, I might be able to help if you attach a sample.

Otherwise, the solution has to be on a preset by preset basis.

There's no global solution.
