    Bump. Just checking in. I have a confession...I haven't even touched my Helix LT since publishing these presets/setlists!!! I went back to my pedalboad + amps and ended up buying/selling like 15 pedals, new power supply, cables, & sold all three of my amps to get a Wooly Coats Spanky MKII. But after a lot of troubleshooting, cable making, etc., I'm ready to get back on the (convenient!) Helix train. Any feedback/constructive criticism of these presets/setlists? Any recommendations for what improvements y'all would like to see in the future?

    I updated the website with some additional information including the list of all of the IRs that I used to dial in the tones. I also included all of the amp and effects settings, additional Distortion level settings/, and Dist Blocks popularity by amp model. I also added an Easter Egg/Purloined Letter to the site

    Line 6 Helix 2.70 Mega-Setlists · 4 Setlists: IRs LG + IRs HG & Cabs LG + Cabs HG. · 232 Presets, each with 8 Snapshots. · 57 solo amp & 175 dual amp presets. · Cab Sets feature L6 Cabs. IR Sets feature IR blocks, but not IR files are provided. BYOIR. · LG = Low Gain (Supro->Plexi Jump). HG = High Gain (2204->L6 amps). · Each amp features Snapshots for Low, Mid, & High Gain settings. · 2 formats for dual amp presets: “Channels” & “Parallel Amps”. · LED rings color coordinated for Snapshots view. · All FX Blocks are custom named. · All Snapshots output leveled to -28.5 LFKS Integrated, ITU-R BS.1770-4, over 15sec of looped open G strumming. · EXP Pedal 2 has additional Mod, Delay, & Reverb settings. · Amp and FX settings largely derived from the SOAS Project (25%) and personal preferences (75%). · To Import, Drag + Drop directly into Helix. Or hit the top left yellow “Import” button & search for “all files” instead of just .hls. I am not sure why the Setlists are saved as .hlx instead of .hls files. · For more information, including lists of all of the amp and effects settings, along with the OwnHammer IR’s I used, please visit: https://l6helix.wixsite.com/helixsoas · To Download the Setlists, please visit: https://line6.com/customtone/profile/Noobian_Prince https://imgur.com/a/Gic53qq

    I'm having a similar issue. It happens to footswitches that I have 2 different blocks assigned to. In my instance, it is a Deluxe Comp & the Output Blocks Level parameter. I have it set so that when the Comp is on, the Output Block cuts the volume by -x.x, and when the Comp goes off, the Output Block levels to 0.0. I save my presets with the Comp on, so the yellow light is bright. If I then copy/paste this preset to another slot, or I export/import it, then the footswitches light is then not only off/dim, but it changes color to white. What gives!?!

    Yes and yes. The overarching goal is to provide the "usable limits" (high & low values), the "most reasonable" (average & median values), and the most popular values. Each SOAS preset/snapshot is not meant to sound good/perfect on its own. Rather they are merely the presentation format for allowing the user to interact with the researches resulting values. To an extent, It is about the individuals values themselves, not their relations to the other values in that snapshot. The idea is that the research gives the user around 8 possible/usable values per parameter. The user can then find their best value(s), and plug it into the preset they are creating. On the website, I call the SOAS presets "Ante-Presets" because they aren't finalized/ideal presets on their own; rather they are what comes before ("ante") the presets the user creates out of them. You are correct that each amps total data isn't sorted into low & high gain categories. But if a given amp has a wide dynamic range, then in the "Popular 1/2/etc" values, you should see options that are more suited for low & high gain applications. While I am "pretty much done" with analyzing amps for this project, and am moving onto effects, I do have a few more forthcoming amps. Even though I told myself I was done buying presets...I couldn't contain myself and bought a bunch by FM, MF, GD, THC, & CT, for all of the recent/newer 2.3/2.5 amp models. Plus I've gathered even more Custom Tone presets for those amps. I now have a lot more values for the Friedman, Lonestar, Trainwreck, & Victoria models to play with than were featured in the SOAS 2.0 update. Whats the point of this? For those three amp models, and others that have well above 30+ source presets/values, I am going to redo/separate them into low & high gain categories. I'll separate these above & below either the overall median (preamp) gain value, or the total (preamp+master) gain value (for those amp models that have master volumes in real life). I can only do this for amps that have more than 30 source presets, as I feel that this research approach doesn't yield great/varied/enough results if I'm analyzing a set of 15 or less source presets. I also plan to do this for amps that have different "modes". For example, I have separated my new Friedman BE-100 results into two categories: 1) HBE Off & 2) HBE On. That one toggle makes a huge difference!

    If anyone cares, I finally found some time to update the website with information on the SOAS2-Presets layout (looper, duplicate amp, gain block, & dual cabs). More importantly, I published the results for the IRs, Dual Cabs, & Mics settings. I hope y'all find this resourceful! https://l6helix.wixsite.com/helixsoas https://imgur.com/a/8R2PhH2

    !!! SOAS 2.0 IS ALIVE !!! SOAS 2.0 includes: 1) 594 new source presets! total = 1,146 presets! 2) 46 amp models! 3) Dual-Cabs with analyzed optimal cab settings & speaker mixes! 4) Vol (gain) block for Dual-Cabs sum-to-mono/vol leveling (if playing stereo, disable gain block)! 5) Updated settings for Comp, Drives, EQs, and IR high/low cuts! 6) Looper at front of signal path for scrolling through settings! The "Set of All Settings" (SOAS) is an analysis of 1,146 presets from Line 6, Custom Tone, & Professional users! 46 Custom Tone "SOAS-Presets" featuring 5-8 Snapshots each! This project consists of several "Sets Of All Settings" or "SOAS-Presets", nearly one per amp model in the Line 6 Helix. The goal was to see how other Pro/Paid and Custom Tone Helix users were setting up their amps and effects; not to copy their settings, but to see if any patterns emerged between the various parameter ranges. The SOAS-Presets, aren't presets per se; rather they’re "Ante-Presets", meaning that they are what comes before you create your own presets. All values offered here are merely suggestions, not absolutes! Each SOAS-Preset consists of 5-8 Snapshots: 1) L6 Default (default amp values) 2) L6 Factory (normally from the Factory 1 Setlist) 3) Average (average of all values) 4) Median (median of all values) 5-7/8) Popular 1/2/3/etc. (most popular values) 7/8) User 1/2 (Average, with Ch Vol down to 3.) I will be adding more information to the website in the next few days. But for now, most of the new settings summary charts are available on the site.

    Sooo, these have been in the wild for 10 days now...What are everyone's thoughts? -Additional resources I should add to the website? -How do your go-to presets settings match up to the SOAS settings? -Have these been helpful in developing your own new presets? -Is the SOAS project resourceful/pragmatic? Or is the data just interesting on a theoretical level? -What else would y'all like to see from me? What should I do next? ---Focus on filling out the missing amps/less represented amps? ---Effects categories by priority? Specific effects? ---Most common amp combinations? ---Cab/IR selection, settings? (high/low cut, mic placement, etc) ---Routing arrangements? I have had a few community members contribute presets/settings to me. Some folks made some HUUUUGE contributions, other small. I'll gladly welcome any & all contributions, whether they are pro/paid presets, Custom Tone presets, or your own go-to presets. If you're ethically opposed to sharing paid/pro presets, please just send me the settings for the amp or effects that you'd like to see included. But sending the presets themselves tends to be the easier route. Trust me, this isn't some scam to get free presets, I now have waaay more pro & Custom Tone presets than I'll ever be able to use! I'm purely after the settings! You can find my email on this page: https://l6helix.wixsite.com/helixsoas/links I hope that y'all have found this research resourceful. I would definitely like to continue it if and only if folks are actually finding it pragmatic for a) providing "shortcuts", b) understanding what certain parameters do by looking at how other players use them, and most importantly c) actually creating their own custom kick-lollipop presets! Also, please kindly remember that there are no absolute "best" here; all of the SOAS aggregated values/settings are merely suggestions. Tweak till you freak! Thanks again to all y'all who have contributed, whether passively or directly. Happy Holidays! Prince

    I blocked out those values out of respect to the Paid-preset makers. I don't want to freely share their creations without their permission. That Plexi SOAS is an example of what I compiled for each amp & effect featured in the SOAS. What I am publicly sharing are the aggregate values that resulted from the list of individual Paid+Custom Tone presets. What I am not sharing are those individual presets values. The Plexi SOAS is a quasi-behind the scenes look at what I was doing. Those missing values exist, and were a part of the analysis, but I'm not going to share them or any of the other 230+ Paid presets settings that I compiled. But, if you're savvy, I'm sure you can do some reverse engineering.

    One of the unsaid operating assumptions here is that I'm disregarding the "but bruh, different guitars, A2 vs A5 pickups, (un)wound G strings, pick materials, cable capacitance...blah blah...tone is in the fingerz" counter-arguers. It is safe to assume that if over 100 users contributed to these SOAS, that they were arguably using several different playing techniques and types of gear when producing their SOAS worthy presets. Hence, the intent of this project is to create statistically sound ranges of values, rather than definitive "best" values, because we all know there is no such thing as "best" in the guitar world. Unless were talking about Rats as the best dirt box ever, because well, Rats are the f*cking best!
  12. The "Set of All Settings" (SOAS) is an analysis of over 550 presets from Line 6, Custom Tone, & Professional users! 40+ Custom Tone "SOAS-Presets" featuring 5-8 Snapshots each! This project consists of several "Sets Of All Settings" or "SOAS-Presets", nearly one per amp model in the Line 6 Helix. I wanted to uncover some good starting points for crafting my own tones, and got a bit carried away...The goal was to see how other Pro/Paid & Custom Tone Helix users were setting up their amps and effects, not to copy their settings, but to see if any patterns emerged between the various parameter ranges. The SOAS-Presets, aren't presets per se; rather they’re "Ante-Presets", meaning that they are what comes before you create your own presets. All values offered here are merely suggestions; they are means and not necessarily ends in themselves. These values should point you in the right direction, but you'll still have to mix and match the various values yourself to sculpt your own custom tone! ​ Each SOAS-Preset consists of 5-8 Snapshots: 1) L6 Default (default amp values) 2) L6 Factory (from the Factory 1 Setlist, generally from presets with the amps name in the title) 3) Average (average of all values) 4) Median (median of all values) 5-7/8) Popular 1/2/3/etc. (#1/#2/etc. most popular values) 7/8) User 1/2 (L6 Default, with Channel Volume dropped to 3.

  13. Hello y'all, I have been using an M9 going on 5 years now. For a while last year, I used a T1M Mini Fixed Expression pedal with the M9 to change fx settings. I tried using it again today and can't figure out how to get it to work properly. Anyone have any instructions for how to program a fixed expression switch for the M9? Thanks y'all!
