The remaining 2,5 percent will get there when I have my snapshots dialed in better
I fell into the old trap when making sounds at home... to much gain and compression.
The concept with sending one stereo signal to foh and the other to my own monitor worked great and I had great sound all night. The sound engineer was very pleased and told me it had been very easy to work with.
My fellow guitarslinger also uses helix but run his through the return of his jvm 215. The sound engineer praised his tone due to richer harmonic content and bla bla until Niels told him "hey I'm just using the power amp and speaker:)
I went through the same struggels as you - live presets needs to be dialed in their own way - less gain - less compression and less reverb/delay/chorus. The tone gets muddy real fast.
After a couple of gigs you will get there.
I also did the separate guitar monitor but switched to inear with my own small mixer that works just like a separate monitor.
This way I can control my own guitar in my inear and get a separate feed for the rest of the band.
I am super happy going small for gigs - so much easier on the back and so far it has never failed me.
