  1. Hi guys,

    Man, Line 6 did an INCREDIBLE job with that Badonk amp model.
    I honestly feel that for heavy music that amp model is my favorite amp in the Helix now.
    I used to be a big fan of the Big Bottom amp so naturally this one suits me well.
    The improvement however is definitely there.
    To me it feels and sounds more realistic and warm while still maintaining that HUGE crunch!
    Paired with the OwnHammer 412 Recto V70B it's just incredible.....

    I'm also digging the new Obsidian 7000 (Darkglass B7k) bass drive pedal.

    Anyway, so I made a video about these new features.
    Hope you enjoy this one!

  2. Hi everyone,

    I think the ultimate way to test any modeler is in the context of a full band mix.
    That is why I recorded this song and made a video for you guys.
    This song covers some clean tones, heavy distorted riffs and little things in between.

    For all the guitar and bass parts I used the Helix combined with the wonderful OwnHammer Impulse Responses.
    I think the Helix holds up very well in the mix, what do you think?
    I'd also like to add that the Helix is an outstanding unit for bass!

    If you have any questions about this mix I'd be happy to answer them here.
    I'm also planning on doing a mix tutorial series on my channel that will cover every single aspect of the mix, including mixing and processing the guitar and bass parts.
    If you're interested in that stay tuned and subscribe. clear.png

    I hope you enjoy this video!

  3. I personally don't think there's any mystery to "can it do metal".  95% of all the videos out there on the Helix tend to be oriented toward metal.  The questions are really about, can it do jazz, can it do country, can it do funk/soul, or R&B, or Rockabilly...and on and on and on.....

    It can definitely do those things and I'll also be doing way more videos in other genres to show that.

    This video is for the metalheads though :)
