Re: Line 6 Helix Question
Cross post I made fin the Line6 forum I made for creating separate clean mono tracks from a stereo signal using the effects in Helix. Unfortunately you need something to boos the bass signal into the AUX or MIC input for the bass side. None of the returns work when "Re-amping" via USB into DAW:
OK, I figured it out. Similar to the instructions in the manual, but you are right about the AUX level. Either a DI or a clean boost pedal will be needed for the AUX or MIC input.
Input 1 Use Guitar
Input 2 Use AUX or MIC
Merge input 2 into 1 so both will be output into USB 1-2
Put whatever effects you need for both sides
Go to Menu then Global Settings and assign AUX or MIC to Re-AMP SRC 8, GUITAR was defaulted to Re-Amp SRC 7
Create one stereo track,Inputs 1-2
Create the melody dry signal MONO track input 7
Create the bass dry signal MONO track input 8
All outputs should be 1-2
Plug the melody side in guitar and bass into AUX or MIC
Arm all and record. I got the effects of both sides in the stereo track, and separate clean signals in the bass and melody mono tracks
I did not try using the mic channel. The problem is they do not allow the returns to be selected for USB 7-8 which are the two Re-Amp inputs in USB.
You only get the choice of AUX,MIC, or GUITAR for 7-8
I used headphones to monitor.
