Forgive me if this has been discussed ad nauseam on here already, but I'm looking for some experienced opinions here and couldn't find a relevant thread. Been working on it for a long time, and I just secured my dream amp rig. I run my guitar, first, into my tuner, then into a noise gate, then a 6 band graphic EQ (low end rolled off a touch, high end boosted a touch) into my Line 6 DL-4. The DL4 is run out in stereo to my two amps, a JCM800 and a Mesa Dual Rectifier. The reason I'm using the DL4 to split my signal is because I have the left side going dry into the JCM, and the right side I have my signal delayed by a just a few milliseconds running into the Rectifier. Neither side have any repeats, so you end up with your tone being panned and slightly offset between the two amps, making an INCREDIBLY thick sounding tone. Let me tell you, if you haven't tried running your amps in stereo this way, do yourself a big ol' fukkin favor and try it out. That tone is what dreams are made of, for real. It's the same difference for your live tone that you get in the studio by recording two separate audio tracks and panning them hard left and right. I told you that to ask you this: I want to be able to replicate this general set up, but not carry around two 100 watt amp heads, two separate cabs, and a big pedal board. What with digital amp modeling becoming actually really good, I think a floor based multi-effects processor/amp sim substitute would be more than adequate, so I'm looking at either the Fractal AX8 or the Line 6 Helix. If you have experience with either, do you know if there would be any problems with running this type of rig through either the Helix or the AX8? Do they have the ability to run stereo amps like that? For me, the pristine quality of the tone isn't as important as replicating the rig I have. If you have any other ideas for something that would work better than either of those units, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks in advance!
