Set the volume knob to control just headphones: is it possible on the Helix LT?


Recommended Posts

I'm deciding between the Helix and the Helix LT, and now I have this question. These are my current needs:


  • the XLR and 1/4" to be always at full volume – ie. not being adjusted by the volume knob;
  • the headphones to be adjusted by the volume knob.


Question: Is it possible to be done on the Helix LT?


Page 65 of the manual says:



Volume Knob Controls
you may want to disable the VOLUME knob altogether; in this case, set it to “Digital,” at which point Helix LT’s 1/4" and XLR outs will be at unity level.


... but there is no mention if the headphone volume will still be controlled by the volume knob.

Hi Rachmaninoff, 


Yes, this is possible with Helix LT. 


When you go into Global Settings > Ins/Outs and set 'Volume Knob Control' to 'Digital', only the Headphone volume will be effected by the Volume Knob while the 1/4" and XLR outs are set to unity. You would then adjust your preset levels by adjusting the 'Ch Volume' parameter of the amp block (as well as the output block).
