  1. Awesome!! You have a new subscriber here. What Ownhammer IR did you use if you don't mind me asking?

    Has Any Effect in the Helix Inspired You to Purchase the Real Pedal?

    I'll admit, I've been eyeing the PRS Archon - I think it's the best preamp in the Helix - again, makes me curious about the real deal.

    Has Any Effect in the Helix Inspired You to Purchase the Real Pedal?

    Well.......I'm a bit of a gear nut, no shame here! Looks like I'm alone on this one and that's OK with me. : ) While I like the convenience of effects processors, I just can't help but feel that there is an organic difference in sound with tube amps and analog gear. So when I find something that works well on the Helix, my curiosity makes me try it out via analog. The HX Effects has been awesome to integrate with my pedal board using the FX loops for other pedals. I like all different types of setups though and find it entertaining to learn about other player's. It's always interesting to hear another perspective or approach.
  4. I love the Kinky Boost and Kinky Compressor and therefore got the Xotic Boost and Xotic Compressor to add to my analog pedalboard. Has anyone else purchased the real pedal after using Line 6's version in the Helix?

    Best OwnHammer IRs

    I tried Ownhammer but prefer Sigma Audio's IR's - mostly the Mesa Oversized Rectifier models. My personal favorite is the 3A ACE file. I would recommend the bundle deals for sure. Not sure if Ownhammer does this, but 3 Sigma Audio will update the IR's and send you a notice to download the new updated files - no additional charges.

    HX Stomp as the core of a board (with pictures)

    Very cool project. I did something similar with the HX Effects and a Pedal Pad board. Nice board!

    Helix and Amplitube

    I was just about the pull the trigger on the Stomp I/O for Amplitube and this post just saved me some $$. Thanks!!

    More amps for helix

    It already has the Dual Rec and Mark IV - so no need for a Triple Rec or Mark II. The Triple X is not a "legendary" amp like the 6505, so I don't see any companies trying to model that amp.

    The one thing that really drives me nuts about the Helix

    Yes, I've found this very useful. Hope Line 6 will take this into consideration. The Boss GT-1000 looks very cool - almost picked it up but the Headrush won me over with the interface.

    The one thing that really drives me nuts about the Helix

    Great idea. I recently got a Headrush Gigboard and they have a feature where you can save different presets for every amp/pedal/IR. Helix would benefit well from this too.

    Stay safe

    Stay Safe Line 6 Crew!

    Helix - Getting a good recording tone

    To be clear, when recording from the Helix Floor unit I just used a standard guitar cable. Recording through Native is just a dry guitar signal into my Focusrite interface. Lately I've been getting really good results with Amplitube - the max bundle is amazing.

    Helix - Getting a good recording tone

    I've been experimenting with various VST plugins. I get a killer tone from the Helix floor unit using the Archon preamp and Sigma 3 Audio IR's, but having difficulties with Native getting the same result. I want the option to change tones after recording, so I'm sticking with dry tracks and exploring almost every VST amp plugin under the sun.

    Eliminating muddy low end (over-saturated) - new guy here!

    Have you altered the Global EQ settings? Also, a painful lesson I am learning now - your "by yourself" jamming tone will most like not work for a tone that sits well in the mix.
