NevenT Posted May 6, 2022 Share Posted May 6, 2022 So I recently got a the Helix LT. I'm using it with 4 cable method with a 1982 JCM 800 that has an effects loop added. I'm using the LT as an effects only device. The tone is coming from the head. Previously, I was using a Digitech 1101 single rack unit the same way...effects only. When using the rack unit (4 cable method), I was able to crank up the volume on my head to about 6 and really get the tubes and amp to start working. I'm able to control the volume output level with the volume control on that unit. So the amp is cranking according to the volume settings, but it's not screaming loud because I can control it from the rack device. It sounds really good actually. I wanted an all in one unit so I got the Helix LT. I tried the same thing but it doesn't "Feel" or "Respond" the same. Sound isn't as natural or as good as it was with the rack unit. I'm thinking there's gotta be a way to make it respond like the other unit because the LT is just far superior otherwise. Any suggestions?
