  1. Nope. You can make cool tones with the stock cabs as well, just have to eq them to your liking. My concept was to separate the low end and to control it separately, give it a different character, make it less mushy. By the time my tone structure have changed a bit, i swapped the Ampeg block with a compressor and an eq block, everything is running through a Zilla Fatboy 2x12 and it sounds like this:
  2. Not sure what to reply. Does that guitar sounds okay for you? I shared my story in this forum about my journey with axe fx and also joined several discussion about how "metal players can't get good distortion sounds on helix". I got honestly tired of these debates so I thought this title may be a bit sarcastic, but tells everything. Anyways, the song is joke, our drummer wrote it after a bad day in work (we also did a pop, local country, punk and dnb).
  3. I'm having my RCF 310A IV behind me and it's much better than just having venue monitors in front of me.
  4. sorry for the clickbait title :D M80M directly to Helix Native: Also sorry for the dark content. The song was written by our drummer, because he had a bad at work and the music video is just bad trip :D
  5. What is 2.8? Some kind of soup?!
  6. 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.
  7. Wow, you're absolutely right!!! Cheers mate! I edited the ideascale desc. as well :)
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. I got rid of my Axe II because of too many options :D
  11. Here's my take on the free IR. Caution: use with 8 string guitars only :)
  12. I just tried the free cab, it just sounds great. Thanks for your work, mate!
  13. 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:
  14. Ou yeaaah! The legacy reverbs are fantastic. I also like the Classic Distortion pedal!
  15. 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: Cheers!
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Thanks for the tip, seems like buffer was the issue! Works fine now! Cheers!
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Hey, G12M is the speaker type 412 - 4x12, size of the cabinet A, B, C, D - probably the position of the microphone R-121 is the Ribbon 121 microphone.
  23. Are the global settings on your helix set properly?
  24. I'm keeping it simple with Scarlet 2i2 and Logic Pro X, but sometimes I use Helix as an audio interface (when reamping).
  25. 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?
