Aged_Cheddar Posted January 6 Share Posted January 6 OK, I have a question, but let me start with the obvious....Yes, I'm aware the Helix LT has a expression pedal, and yes I'm aware my bass has a volume knob (2 actually). So, the question...I've recently acquired a 5 string Jazz bass that I'll be using on 5-6 songs throughout a 3.5 hour set, where a low B is a must. This bass is HOT, not so much that I'm clipping the Helix input, but it's certainly notably hotter than the matching pair of P-basses that are my main axes. I LOVE how it sounds so I don't want to mod the pickups/pots back to stock so.... Usually I'm trying to BOOST something, I've never tried to drop the gain of an instrument. So, I was thinking about using the "Low & High Cut" EQ, with both cuts left off, but lowering the level a few dB to get it close to my other basses, then put that right at the front of the chain, before anything else, then assign it a foot switch to hit whenever I grab that particular bass (I prefer to use my LT in stompbox mode)...I feel like this "should" pass the un-effected signal through, with just the dB being cut slightly. I've never tried anything like this, and I'm not right in front of my Helix at the moment to try proof of concept so... So, is this a complicated solution for a simple problem? Am I missing a simpler solution? Is there any reason my solution wouldn't work? Any other suggestions? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
