No offense, I think you may be misunderstanding. The midi track in Ableton is only an example of how you can route audio, while also placing an effect before an audio block. The example is not meant to be taken literally obviously because I am using a midi track as an exampleAgain, not sure I'm following correctly as it's been years since I've used Ableton, but if you're using MIDI that's completely different. The effects blocks have access to the processed and unprocessed signal. I don't see how that would be possible with a guitar track that isn't a DI'd signal. There would be no notes to process before the signal is sent into it.
That's essentially the same as putting all your pedals before the amp, then adding an input box after them all in front of the amp. You'd get no signal into the effects that weren't in the loop. I'm so confused how that'd even work
I think the way it could work is if Helix Native had an audio router button that muted the main audio, and rerouted it to an audio block to be placed anywhere in the chain. I do understand what you mean by not getting signal from effects before the audio block. However, that is something Line 6 would have to account for by making sure the entire chain is considered for the main output
