I was trying out a Helix yesterday because I have been looking to move away from amplifiers and build myself a all in one recording/practice rig at home. I have been eyeing the Helix for a few months now and was excited to test it. It sounds great but something came over me while I was using it, and I kept asking myself if I was really going to use this unit to its full potential? I tend to stick to a few basic sounds, clean, crunch and then an all out VH/Lynch/Vai style tone. Something like the Helix would probably be more than I would ever need, and it makes me hesitant to drop $1500 on it. I do however want the best possible tone and feel, and I need something that allows me to be super quiet yet retain the same tone. Do you ever get the same feeling? Dropping $1500 on a piece of gear like this, knowing that it is complete overkill for your uses?
