FeanorOfTirion Posted February 13, 2022 Share Posted February 13, 2022 Hey, guys I'm just getting back into guitar after a 5 year break and to celebrate my return I picked up a Helix LT which will be here this week sometime. Before I quit playing, the extent of my effects usage was just plugging a pedal chain into the front input of my amp and calling it good. Now that the LT is on its way, I want to be sure I can run a proper effects loop on my tube amp and not fry any of my electronics. After watching a number of videos on the 4CM setup, I think I have the right idea with the cables and for keeping input/output levels proper for good tone. I was hoping someone could check my work on this, so I know that I understand what I am doing. Cables 1. Instrument cable from (output on guitar) to (guitar input on the LT) 2. Instrument cable from (send 1 on LT) to (guitar input of amp) 3. Instrument cable from (effects loop send on amp) to (return 2 on the LT) 4. Instrument cable from (1/4" output on LT) to (effects loop return on amp) 5. Speaker cable from (speaker out on amp) to (speaker cabinet input) Global Settings on Helix Output: 1/4" set to line level Send/Return 1: Set to instrument level Send/Return 2: Set to line level Send/Return 3/4 & XLR Output: Irrelevant to current setup. If you have any input, hot tips, or see any mistakes here please let me know. Thanks in advance, Feanor Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
