MikeMcK Posted October 20, 2021 Share Posted October 20, 2021 I just got my LT last week and this week (Thurs., Fri., Sat.) will be my first gigs with them. One thing I got excited about was the built-in 12-string effect... I use a Mosaic a lot (and still will on band gigs; the Helix is just for duo and trio gigs). When I set up a couple of patches, the first thing I noticed is that it must use a lot of CPU... as soon as I select it in HX Edit, a lot of FX names go gray... is that your experience too or am I missing something and doing something wrong? Also, and in IMHO, I think the Mosaic might sound a bit better, and I spent some time tweaking the effect. The most obvious answer is going to be, "get a Variax". I have one (gigged it for a couple of years) but prefer to use my regular guitars. So have any of you been using the 12-string effect on gigs and been happy with it? Any tips or tricks I should know about? One more piece of info that may be important, I don't know... I'm hoping to switch between electric and acoustic, using the Helix for both (I set up a couple of presets using a 3Sigma IR), and would love to get a decent acoustic 12-string sound on a couple of these gigs.
