    oops.... I bought an Axe FX III.... but...

    Fractal CS was not able to solve constant crashing of Axe Edit, i was unable to edit my tones on computer for 6 months. They were very nice, but they did not find the bug. Not sure about your experience with L6 CS, but so far so good for me.

    Don't you miss Tape Echo & Cavernous reverb from Pod X3?

    Wow, you're absolutely right!!! Cheers mate! I edited the ideascale desc. as well :)
  3. I picked up a POD X3 PRO from ebay and boy! This is unit still competes with others! While dialing some patches, I find some great effects and I wish they were in my helix as well. Tape echo is much nicer than Helix's tape delay, Cavernous reverb is also pretty great. If you think the same, please upvote on ideascale, thanks! https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Please-give-us-back-Cavernous-reverb-from-POD-X3/948555-23508#idea-tab-comments

    Help me understand pathes

    Never heard this patch so can't speak on behalf of the creator, but generally speaking yes, you have to ability to run two rigs at the same time or you can build up multiple rigs, than activate/deactivate them via snapshots. I can't see any FX loop blocks in the patch so I assume it was not created with multiple outputs, but you can easily check on the input/output icons. Helix's great DSP gives you many options, I just watched a video on running two rigs at the same time.

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    I got rid of my Axe II because of too many options :D

    ML Sound Lab IRs OMG!!!

    Here's my take on the free IR. Caution: use with 8 string guitars only :) https://line6.com/customtone/tone/4254087/

    Tips for smoothing out Reverb tails

    Well Strymon's reverbs are coming in "one box" but that does not mean that there are just reverbs without other effects or modulations used. So placing just one reverb block to your signal chain in helix won't give you the same results. Like mentioned above, splitting the signal to A-B path is a good idea. Modulating further your reverb is another good tip, use chorus, univibe, delays and high cuts with it, that'll help you to separate the wet from the dry tone. Here's my take on the topic: https://line6.com/customtone/profile/funkyou86

    Quality of legacy effects

    Ou yeaaah! The legacy reverbs are fantastic. I also like the Classic Distortion pedal!
  10. Hey! I've got inspired after watching the demonstration of the Strymon Volante so I created some new patches. If you like ambient guitar tones, feel free to download and edit them: https://line6.com/customtone/profile/funkyou86 They are built (mostly) with the Transistor Tape, Cosmos Echo with high cuts, parallel chains and reverbs. Please not that recreating volantes tones was not my intention, they just got me inspired :) Cheers!
  11. wow, this kind of reply wasn't expected. Read my full story. Axe Fx suffers from too many options, it just got my tone killed. I don't mind if you keep one in your bedroom, good for you. Indeed. IR's can be downloaded but the helixs IR manager is rubbish and the built in cabs have the options to change the mics on the fly, the distance and other options. Try that and the different placements with your 2568 ownhammer IR's. Also, the cabinet gives the character to your tone, not the amp. Frederik is one of the kind musician. Does not matter what kind of amp he plays, it will always sound awesome. Compared to most of the metal players, who always want an upgrade on the amp list, thinking that might have finally a positive effect on his tone, that's why I took him as an example. I know, because I suffered from this as well. Don't get me wrong, I'm not speaking against addig the good old classics or adding anything new to helix. I'm speaking against the common misconception that everybody thinks when it comes to new gear. Also, each of us has it's own priorities. For me, much more advanced settings would be more welcomed than limited new options.
  12. I sold my AXE FX II for helix. You know how many amps I used for my metal patches? One. Now I only use HBE with the Helix :D If Frederik Thordendal can play with his eight string on a Marshall Plexi, why can't we? I believe more 4x12 cabs would be much more welcomed feature (also added to ideascale :D). Adding more and more amps won't make us better players, it will just raise the level of confusion of the people who are switching from analog to digital. I don't expect much from the upcoming update, but it would be nice to have advanced options on the delays and verbs like in the axe fx (also added to ideascale) :D

    [SOLVED] Clicks and pops with native

    Hey folks! After Helix LT I decided to try out the native as well, but I'am experiencing some issues, first I thought that it is a clipping issue, but no matter how low the input is, i always get pops and clicks. I'm running on OS X High Sierra, Scarlet 2i2 soundcard and Logic Pro X. Is there some settings I have to adjust? Thanks for your advice!

    [SOLVED] Clicks and pops with native

    Thanks for the tip, seems like buffer was the issue! Works fine now! Cheers!

    Helix Native: Good for Psych, Funk, Sound Design etc?

    Just bought the Native in the cyber promotion, and I can't wait to use it on my next projects for sound design and spicing up the dull midi instruments in Logic. I also own a helix LT, so it was totally wort it. The whole user interface is so much simpler than the DAW's built in plugins, I can see myself using the native on a regular basis.

    Help with 8 string tone

    Hey! The two notes are very different and require different approaches. I have an Ibanez M80M, so here's my wisdom (might not work for you or in your music, but hey, this is a forum :D). For me, frequency split and a bass cab is the key. I use a 3Sigma audio Zilla cab with an Ampeg 4x10 IR, everything under 500hz goes through the bass cab. It clears out pretty much the low end for me. Send me your mail in PM and I'll share my preset with you.

    Help Identifying an Impulse Response

    Hey, G12M is the speaker type https://celestion.com/product/16/g12m_greenback/ 412 - 4x12, size of the cabinet A, B, C, D - probably the position of the microphone R-121 is the Ribbon 121 microphone.

    Reamp w/Logic Pro X

    Are the global settings on your helix set properly?

    Favorite DAW and Audio interface with the Helix

    I'm keeping it simple with Scarlet 2i2 and Logic Pro X, but sometimes I use Helix as an audio interface (when reamping).

    Line 6 Official Teaser - Helix Smart Watch

    It better have much more killer reverbs than the big sky, otherwise I'm gonna sue the next week out of you!!! PS: When is the fw4.0 coming out?

    New tutorial for brutal tones but very simple presets!

    I like the idea of placing the EQ before the Amp block. Frederik Thordendal used to put the hi-low pass filters before the amp block :)

    oops.... I bought an Axe FX III.... but...

    I switched from Diezel + POD500X + Recto 412 to Axe II. and I was very disappointed, I wasn't able to get my tone back, there was just too many things to tweak. It was a great unit, but not for me. I was used to line6 logic and interface when editing effects, with axe edit it just wasn't working for me. At that time I had connection timouts every 15 minutes, it was very frustrating, support wasn't able to help me and fellow users who had the same problem. I got sick of FAS, so I turned to Helix, and it works like a charm.

    Jason Sadites template with dual cabs?

    All you have to do is a frequency split (like 500hz or so), add the two cabs, than find the perfect balance.

    List of FRFR speakers mentioned in Helix forum

    RCF 310 ART is also an affordable great sounding FRFR option which I'm happy to use with my 8 string guitars.
