  1. Thanks! Albeit recording with Helix is new to me, I've previously been recording using an Eleven Rack (for 3 years or so), so I got a basic grasp over how to usemodelers in a mix. This particular mix isn't very good though, waaayy too low-middy and too little "crisp" on the guitars. The most fun part about recording isn't the product itself, but rather the improvement from one occasion to the other. :)
  2. The 3Sigma pack I'm using is the US Custom, I think. Turns out I wasn't using Ownhammer, but something else that I can't remember the name of, haha. Also, do notice that cab A (the top cab) is the "main" sound, while cab B (on the bottom row) is used to gain some additional "roominess", so to speak. :P And yeah, the patch is all over the place with EQ, but it works for me, which is the point. ^^
  3. Sorry for the late response. Yeah, really liking the pedal thus far. And I've exported my preset for you. Hope you'll find it useful in some way. :) https://www.dropbox.com/s/8rabmlu30pxh9dn/Horizon%20-%20R6%20.hlx?dl=0
  4. Oh, sorry! I mentioned the pedal under "gear used". It's the Horizon Devices Precision Drive pedal. :)
  5. It's all Helix except for the overdrive pedal! I'm currently using the Archetype Lead amp.
  6. Oh jeez, I had uploaded the track as private. Am a confirmed doofus. Sigh..
  7. Should be fixed now, I think I gave the wrong link to the song. And no, I haven't encountered any phasing issues as of yet. I'm using the A/B Split in the Helix to blend between the IRs.
  8. Hey there. I've had my Helix for about 8 months now, but due to studies and an inspiratory meltdown I've not composed or recorded anything for ages. Today, however, I decided to change that. To do a quick gear rundown I'm using the following: - REAPER Recording software - Superior Drummer 2.0 (about half the kit is from the Progressive EZX) - Line 6 Helix straight into my computer via USB - PRS Mark Holcomb Signature (Guitar) - Cheap Ibanez Bass (SR-something series) - Horizon Devices Precision Drive (an overdrive pedal) I'm using a mix between 3Sigma and Ownhammer IR's for my guitar sound, and a blend between raw signal + cab signal (also Ownhammer) for my bass sound. All effects (except the overdrive for my guitars) are from the Helix. However, some the tracks are not raw - I've been using some EQ and compression on both the bass and the guitars. Please keep in mind that my playing is awful and the track is not mastered nor mixed to any larger extent. Also, the drums are processed to hell and beyond, lol. Anyway, enough talking, here's the clip: https://soundcloud.com/hampus-persson-10/mjatol/s-pWg8Q (Also, I realized I'm a fanboy of Periphery. Crap.)
  9. I mostly edit my patches on my computer - so, fortunately, I noticed it right away! Really adds that subtle low end, which adds some extra "room" to the sound. Love it!
  10. Holy moly! The PRS Archon amp is MONSTROUS! Great job, guys. Now I love my Helix even more. <3 And the patch notes lmao "- If a user fails to read and follow the update instructions, Helix will cause their car radio to play only polka death metal every Thursday from 1-3pm PST"
  11. Wow, a huge thank you! These cabs sound ridiculously good. Threw toghether a patch rather quickly and recorded it, this is the result: https://soundcloud.com/hampus-persson-10/3sigma-us-custom-ir-test/s-BIyJQ There is no post-processing on the tracks, and excuse my crappy playing, lol.
  12. Well, no. If I'm correct, an IR (Impulse Response) is an EQ curve used to shape your sound. However, you cannot alter the type of instrument you are playing, e.g. from Electric Guitar to Piano. However, you can change the character of your sound from clean to acoustic thourhg IRs.
  13. My signal chain is the following: (Noise Gate from the input)-> 10-band EQ -> Red Squeeze Comp -> Scream 808 Dist -> Parametric EQ -> Amp, then I split the signal with the A/B split. Main cab is the SM7b 2_center (A.), secondary is CV4 2_center_off (B.). I have the the A/B split to 50A. The chain is topped off by the Neve bright - 1 and Neve - mud -3 and a parametric EQ where I have a cut a 2.1 kHZ in a high Q. The only post-processing I have done is a HP at 100Hz. And I realize this tone might be a little scooped, haha. https://soundcloud.com/hampus-persson-10/ir-test-jim-roseberry/s-qjfH8 The cabs are of very high quality, and the Neve IR-shaping is a really nice feature. I'll try to get around testing some more, but time is somewhat limited at the moment. Keep up the good work!
  14. I'd also like to test these cabs! Sounds like a neat concept.
