Tip: Controlling input impedance via Snapshot/footswitch

1 From the Input block, press and turn the Guitar In-Z knob. This activates it for snapshot control.

2 Set the value however you want per snapshot.

For example, if you have three fuzzes in a row followed by an amp (?!), leave the Guitar In-Z set to a lower impedance for any snapshots where a fuzz is on, and set it to 1M Ohm for any snapshots where all three fuzzes are bypassed.

If you have a single fuzz and would prefer to just turn it on and off with a Stomp mode footswitch, you can also do this:

1 Press and hold the Guitar In-Z knob. Helix jumps to the Controller Assign page for that parameter.

2 Press Knob 6 (Learn Controller) and then press the fuzz’s Stomp switch.

3 Set the Min Value to 1M Ohm and the Max Value to whatever impedance sounds right for that fuzz. Now turning the fuzz on and off will also change the impedance circuit.

Tip: Change Params w/Footswitch

  1. Press and hold the Amp > Gain parameter knob. Helix jumps to the Controller Assign page.
  2. Press Knob 6 (Learn Controller) and then press an unused stomp switch. Set min and max values to goose the Gain by a bit.
  3. Press HOME and repeat steps 1 and 2 for any other parameters (up to 8 per footswitch) that might act like a boost—EQ Highs, Minotaur Level, Gain level, Multi Output Level, etc. Remember, you can also lower parameters by a bit from the same switch—just swap the min and max levels. So if you boost the amp gain and it’s too loud, you can simultaneously lower the Output level to compensate.
  4. Touch-hold the footswitch from step 2 and then Knob 5 (Customize). Custom label the footswitch “Boost” and set the ring color to taste.

Bonus—None of the above uses any additional DSP or block locations.
