  1. For any Rage fans on here, Here is a link to my preset and my custom made IR file made specifically for the preset. All guitars on the video are Helix, Quad tracked
  2. I think many of the fx in Helix are great, i love the drive pedals the modulations are good the delays are outstanding but the reverbs are not as good and the weakest part of the Helix for me. They are usable for sure and can sound ok when dialed in right but they lack richness compared to other pieces of gear i own. I'm pretty sure we will get an update at some point. My favorite reverb i have is the UAD EMT250 i would love to see a model of the EMT on the Helix
  3. Thanks guys, @Gtrmike Just click the facebook link in my signature below and when you're there click ask to join. Cheers
  4. The only way i could see this working and being user friendly is if Helix had a lock function like the Kemper has. For example on the kemper you can lock any fx so when you change preset/profile whatever you have locked will stay in place regardless of the preset chosen until you push unlock
  5. Somebody told me Helix can't do metal very well so i've been experimenting and find it's great for metal
  6. I own a Kemper toaster an Axe FX2 XL and a Helix. They are all great devices and all sound great. I'm not saying that because it's the right thing to say, i'm saying it because it's the truth
  7. Here is some Friedman BE 100 tones i created, available for free on my facebook group. I will also upload them for free here in a few days
  8. This is one of the presets from my Friedman matched IRs that im uploading Thursday Does anyone know how to embed soundcloud links on this forum?
  9. Well,,, that is something you don't see every day :) I'd love to go there myself
  10. I have had a lot of people asking me asking if i would share my Helix presets without them having to join my facebook group as many don't use FB. Here is a direct download link to what i've done so far. Enjoy Here is a few videos i've put up to demo these sounds
  11. Thanks very much guys, it's been a lot of work but equally a lot of fun making these. The Friedmans i'm posting next week are probably the best i've made so far
  12. I have to disagree with the OP, for me the tube screamer sounds very close to my Joyo tube screamer clone and i'm more than happy with it. The Minotaur on the other hand is my favorite drive pedal i've ever used be it digital or hardware. Minotaur is incredible to me
  13. Here are some new Helix patches complete with IRs Free to download on my FB Helix group there are 5 new ones uploaded today
  14. Thanks guys, @Chuskey Thanks i hope you like the presets, To capture an IR of an artist tone initially just requires EQ matching software like Izotope Ozone EQ section. You would get it to listen to a target tone for a few seconds then tell it to listen to your reference tone (your own axe with amp modeling on but no cab engaged) then just apply the corrected curve. After that, run some sine sweeps through the match to create the IR. It's pretty cool and can capture 99% of the stuff i've tried. The only difference is when someone else uses a patch you made this way is it will sound a little different with different types of pick ups but i suppose thats true of any tone. Im doing a few experiments for IRs at the front of the chain that will simply convert a Humbucker to single coil and vice versa. If these turn out good ill upload them to the group too :) Cheers
  15. I uploaded my first few artist presets today including my impulse responses. The guitar tones on this video are my presets double tracked
  16. Dream Theatre fans i will be including this Helix preset when i upload them in a few days. The first half of the clip is Dream theatre the 2nd half is 100% helix with my DT impulse. The other 2 presets for this week will be Queen- One vision and Black Sabbath- War Pigs
  17. Thanks guys, ill be uploading 3 artist tones complete with IRs this week
  18. Thanks very much guys, I'm chuffed with the tones i've got out of the Helix so far and started experimenting today using the helix amp models and making impulses from famous artist tones. The results have blown me away. Over 100 slots to store our impulses on the Helix sounds a lot at first but i wish there was 1000 slots I'm gonna run out of slots fast :lol:
  19. I just made my first video with the Helix, i will upload the presets i made for this track tomorrow on my facebook group and keep adding presets and impulse responses weekly.
  20. My helix landed today and i've been putting it through it paces and i think it sounds and feels great. I have a huge amount of IRs (1000s) that i shot myself in my studio last year. I will do a few youtube videos in a few weeks and share some of my IRs for free. This thing is so easy to use it's silly
  21. I have a Helix coming tomorrow so can't be 100% sure but this Helix layout is very similar to my Axe 2 grid layout. I don't think one cab is passing through another here. In the first picture Row 1 is amp and IR row 2 is amp and different IR. At no point do the IRs feed into each other, they simply end up on the same path out which will not pass one through another it will simply merge the 2 tones (Post IRs) into one output path which will obviously make a difference in sound but it isnt feeding one IR into another. Nice video btw enjoyed watching it
  22. Thanks very much for the info :)
