So I downscaled my setup - sold my rack, my Mastermind GT, shelved my MEG, and went with a Helix Floor and a few pedals in the FX loops. The routing options are fantastic and load-in takes a fraction of the time without a Kemper and a snake and a massive pedalboard. However, I miss some of the tones I once had, so I'm thinking about reincorporating the MEG in addition to the Helix's FX loops. I also want to try running my Strymon stuff in stereo, so running multiple outboard overdrive pedals through the Helix's FX loops isn't really an option anymore. Additionally, I picked up a germanium fuzz that I want to incorporate (it sounds so good), but it needs to be first in the chain for it to not sound like butt. So I want to make sure what I'm thinking here is possible before I rip everything off my pedalboard and rewire it all. Here's my planned chain: Guitar (duh) MEG non-buffered input MEG Send 1 SolidGoldFX If 6 Was 9 (Germanium edition) MEG Return 1 MEG Send 2 (always on) Foxpedal K Buffer Emerson EmDrive Mach 2 (always on, clean boost/tone shaping) Helix Input Helix FX Send 1 EHX Pitchfork (blows away the pitch shifting/harmonization on the Helix and even works after fuzz and complex chords) Helix FX Return 1 Helix FX Send 2 (always on) MEG Return 2 MEG Send 3 6 Degrees FX Sally Drive (light gain overdrive) MEG Return 3 MEG Send 4 Emerson Paramount (another light gain, might swap it with the Sally Drive) MEG Return 4 MEG Send 5 Bondi Sick As (medium/high gain) MEG Return 5 MEG CS output Helix FX Return 2 [ everything after this isn't relevant but I figured I'd at least mention it ] ... compressor, modeled effects and amps, etc. Helix FX Send 3/4 (stereo) Strymon Timeline Strymon BigSky Helix FX Return 3/4 (stereo) ... modeled cabs Helix output (XLR to house, 1/4" to FRFR powered cabinet, all summed mono for now, stereo will be added later) What I'm thinking is this will allow me to set up the Helix to turn on/off any of my overdrives and my fuzz (via MIDI) independently, as well as the Pitchfork (via Helix's FX loop 1), while utilizing MEG loop 2 to basically load the front of the Helix. Helix FX loop 2 and MEG loop 2 will always need to be on in this scenario, but that won't be a problem. Any reason why this wouldn't work? It makes sense to me. Anything that you see that might be better or could be improved?
