I’m having some issues getting a decent lead tone using my Helix LT into Reaper. I could really do with some help if anyone has any clues.
I use the Helix into a Focusrite 18i8 via the XLR output to the Focusrite, into my MacBook Pro, (2019). The clean and crunch sounds are really good and usable. I’ve been able to record these without any issues. The problem is when I need more gain. The guitars (US Strat HH, Telecaster American Elite, and an Ibanez RG), sound either fizzy or clunky, (as in you have to pick harder to get a sound), or just not very responsive.
I’ve checked the noise gate, it sounds great through an amp, and sounds good through headphones. I’ve re-created the settings from YouTube people without success.
I’m really at a loss, I know it’s something I’m doing, but I don’t know what that is.
