  1. Listening again to some recordings I've still got, the differences are very subtle from recording to recording. The fact is, sometimes they're audible, sometimes not. One thing I've noticed is I get wildly different sounds from the same patch from session to session

  2. I've had good results using external IRs in a DAW but there's a problem. I've found out that when you select "No Cab", the deps E.R., Lo Cut, Res Lvl, Thump, Decay (even the mic!) are still active and change the sound of the IRs in the recording. They should be off in theory but they're not. Nobody knows where the real neutral settings should be so you have to set them to taste...

  3. Playing a diminished 4th over an augmented 7th of the Patagonian scale while using a subatomic minor bass in the route to the 66 means absolutely nothing if you look like my next door neighbor and stand there like a tree.  

    I'll take KISS and Lady Gaga any day. 


    I understand (to a point) the fascination with the looks, but if the sound sucks, personally I couldn't care less about that. Maybe it's me, or it's because I like good sounding next door neighbor trees...

  4. Well no official source. It's my personal experience that at some point I've found out I didn't need that anymore. I can't remember the firmware. Maybe it was a bug in previous firmware and I've exploited a bug they fixed. Who knows...

  5. instead of using the comp in front of the amp, put it after...


    doing so it will work more similarly to how a limiter would do, will affect much less your natural attack of the notes, you'll still be able to affect the amp tone response with your touch dynamics, but the notes output volume will be more constant..


    suggested comp: tube comp or vetta


    Everytime I put an effect post amp the volume drops too much (unacceptable low), even on default settings. The change in volume is so huge I've stopped trying after a few tries...

  6. also, until now over the years I have never seen a patch made by L6 staff that use the single input approach,



    if the single input approach really was the right and better working solution, would not be in the L6 interest to use it in their patches to put the best light on their device?


    The first rule of the Line 6 Club is... you never talk about Input 2 settings! Some time ago they released Queensryche's patches and the settings were all standard. Are they all masochists? :lol: One day we will know the real truth behind the POD signal chain, even if we will have to decipher some Nostradamus prophecy...

  7. Maybe Paul Hindmarsh is no longer working as a demonstrator for LIne 6?


    Perhaps somebody from Line 6 could confirm this before we all pester the hell out of a bloke who has been made redundant?


    He has uploaded a new video some days ago... with FireHawk! That "should" be a sign he is still with them. The weird part is, the recording sessions for the demo I was talking about started June 14 and that video is still not online! Line 6 said NO? :lol:

  8. It seems Paul Hindmarsh is recording a demo using Helix, but only to test the sound of the Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickups. He says he has no plans of doing a real Helix demo. Strange! Regarding Pete Thorn, he's a user on The Gear Page forum.  As I was saying before, maybe asking directly on that forum "could" lead to a demo by him... or not :)
