Hello folks,

Can someone explain the difference between hi/lo cut and bass/treble control?

Thanks

Phil

High or low cut is (like) super decreasing or eliminating the highest and lowest freq.s.

Bass/treble control sound like amp eq to me, is this about a gear or program you're using?

Thanks for replying Mertay

In Helix, cabs and IRs have high cut and low cut, amps have bass and treble, I'm confused blink.gif

The "CUT" removes part of the signal. E.G. Bass Cut, removes part of the bass frequencies. Then the bass and trebble controls allow you boost bass and treble. Some cabs are a bit boomy/bass heavy and benefit from a pinch of bass cut even though you might later add some bass boost smile.gif

Ah ok here's in use description,

Low-cut; Clean any sort of sub-bass rumble you hear with this (check with headphobes, play mutes powerchords even on clean to check such rumble). There are other uses for this but lets talk that later.

High-cut; You probably won't use this so much since you have ir's. But if your guitar tone ever turns out to be too bright/sharp for a backing track try it first before reaching to amp eq's.

Hi Phil - I am guessing this relates to my comment about too much bass in your REC sound.

Usually all you need to do is turn the bass knob down. And remember a nice and bassy sound which sounds large on its own - is usually way too bassy for a mix. Best is if you try to tweak your sound while the backing track is playing - you should notice how it's easier to balance the levels (backing vs guitar sound) when you turn the bass knob down.
