  1. Everyone needs to take a chill pill. Its a small price to pay for a short wait till a computer based editor :P you guys really get serious over this stuff! We are early purchasers of the Helix, and with that comes some early testing and waiting :) Nothing to panic about!
  2. Tone is subjective - so if it sounds good to you, it doesn't matter what others think! Its hard to validate sounds you like with the opinions of others because we all like different things :)

    FRFR suggestions

    bear in mind - being made in China isn't the issue. Its the QC in the factories. Iv seen plenty of really nice gear come out of Chinese factories where the QC is carefully monitored :) So don't be put off by the label "made in China" - be put off by the reviews and I guess in your case, the experience! Man that really does suck about the ASM though :/ was quite interested in that
  4. I just plug my Ipod into the aux input and run it clean on path 2 with no effects, while my guitar is on path 1. Works well for me :P
  5. The editor is supposedly not far away, so we shouldn't have to wait too much longer!
  6. Had it since it was released - never had an issue.
  7. One of my bass patches has 2 amps, 2 cabs, 2 compressors, 2 high/low pass filters all on the one DSP. So it goes to show that each amp is quite different in its DSP usage! Cause I can still add more to the path as well haha
  8. Thanks mate! Yeah such a fantastic group of dudes - sadly iv yet to see them live. The last time they came down to New Zealand I wasn't living here :( Im in the process of making more sounds closer to their tones so will post when I get the chance :)
  9. The ANGL Meteor/ENGL Fireball, and the GK Cougar bass amp. I actually just ran both amps through separate SVT 8x10 Helix cab sims. I scooped all the mids on my bass and raised the treble, which is where all that grind comes from! so on my Ibanez fan fret, its like neutral on bass, fully scooped on mids, and fully maxed on treble - lightly compressing both signals into each amp. The rest is helix! The low pass on the clean channel, and high pass on the engl is really important to blend the two amps nicely~~ ill try upload it when I can :P
  10. you wont be able to run that many pitch shifters at once im pretty sure - they are very dsp hungry :P one already takes up heaps of dsp haha
  11. No confirmed date, but hopefully soon as it was expected within a couple of months from release date. its so easy to patch things directly on the helix, so we should be able to survive quite comfortably till then :) I just want it so I can click things fast ahaha
  12. If you have the Helix software open (for IR's and patches etc) the Helix updater wont see the helix for some reason. I had the same problem, but if you only have one open at once it seems to work!
  13. No ones mentioned the bass models yet, so ill chime in. Iv been LOVING the GK Cougar amp for bass. Running it through the 8x10 SVT cab sim, and it absolutely slays! Iv gotten crisp and clear clean tones, and grindy driven tones out of it. I did a quick recording of what sounds I got so far, the sounds were just using the GK Cougar, and the ANGL meteor! Iv been loving the ANGL Meteor, though I didn't dial it in very well for the recording for some reason https://soundcloud.com/joelthekiwi/simple-boy-helix-test

    hey Aaron, you can run 3 amps on separate paths to spread the DSP usage out. To my understanding, path 1 and 2 have their own dsp so you can route it between them :) I think there is a preset which does this? I could be wrong though. So far, iv relied on amps more than pedals for gain - some of the amps have fantastic drive in them so give them a go! If you crank the master on some of the crunch amps it really gets the amp going :)
