    Hi guys,

    I've recently obtained an EVH 5150 amp. I was previously running a helix via frfr into a pair of powered monitors.

    My question is can I now use the helix as both a guitar amp fx unit and a bass unit. Ie. could I have patches set up to channel switch the 5150 and throw on effects, and then switch over to a bass patch and have all the audio coming out of the monitors - the audio going out of either monitors or a 2x12 cab on a patch by patch basis?

    Or do I have to do one or the other?

    That's one thing I love about the Helix, there are so many routing options. You'll have to specify which output you'll be utilizing on the output block when setting up the presets, most likely XLR for bass and 1/4" four cable method for guitar, and it will work just fine.
