Audio pilot is a delete for me …. never use if for the reasons you state.Another question is Bose AudioPilot function. One top microphone is routed to Bose amplifier. When option AudioPilot is on, it supposed to adjust volume ( maybe other adjustments too).
I tried it on original Bose and it looks useless. Especially considering how easy is volume adjustment by wheel control.
obviosly when connected to Helix this function doesn't work, no much regrets.
in theory, the microphone can be routed to inputs of Audio DSP and some corrections can be programmed using SigmaDSP Studio . But it is a stretch goal…
