Zentorz Posted June 27, 2022 Share Posted June 27, 2022 Ok, I have tried looking both here and Youtube but it seems I do not know how to phrase the question. Most of the time I use my Helix straight into the computer and all is fine.. Now I am getting ready to head back out live and fighting with my volume control on the board to vary the DB coming out of the amps as I do w/ the comp.. At the end of the chain( s) I have my volume pedal ( Exp 1) ON the comp, I have smooth control of the volume from 0-to 100%. I can hear it, I can smoothly go from rhythm to lead and back.. Depending on the parts I play, I adjust from normally 30% up to 75%, then any solo is usually at 100%.. no problem... With my amps, one is tube, the other SS... AT the end of the chain, I have 0% sound and at 10% I have what sounds the same as 100%. If I move the volume to the beginning of the chain I, of course, just cut the signal so that I have clean vs dist, but again, no sound-100%.. I have been fighting this since 2017 so, not a new problem, I just finally am asking for help. Yes, I can just set up a button w/ gain, but , it just doesn't sound the same nor does it flow the same.. and using two amps, I can't just use a foot pedal on an amp.. I don't dance that well anymore.. What am I messing up? I have tried my normal stereo setups and went back again to mono w/ the same problem... Too loud or too quiet on stage. The amps are mic'ed ..btw... Thanks for any help Z Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
