    Can the Helix replicate this tone?

    This is Andy Summers asking. He's doing a pub tour in Wales these days and just can't nail that tone he had, back in the day. He's been trying pod's, Eleven rack, Pocketamp, Bias, Amplitube, Fractal, Kemper, and now....Helix. He's getting sooo close, but he just can't figure out how to multiply himself and do all the different parts and doubles. He also sold the guitar he used on the recording, but he managed to find the exact same guitar, but it was built one year later, so it has a tiny bit more treble. And then there's the guitar pick of course. He's pretty sure he used red sharkfins, but trying it today, it sounds closer with a white sharkfin. It's all very confusing to Andy. He called Sting, but he was of no help. Rather rude actually. If someone in this group knows Stewart Copeland, maybe he can share some light on this subject?

    Really? Another BS thread about this?

    Brian May tones with helix and variax

    Sounds good :-) Is there a patch somewhere?

    I bet the Helix cannot replicate this tone

    Hehe. With the exact same guitar and pickups, you can achieve this sounds pretty easily with an clean amp, add some chorus and delay, and 4-5 layered tracks. Like you can achieve any guitar sound:)

    It's back... The EXP1/EXP2 problem in 2.10

    Hm. As long as I stay away from old patches, I'm fine. But if I choose an old patch and use the snapshots, and go back to my new patches, it's back. Are you sure you are not doing the same? I'm sure they have a fix for it when the new year comes around. In the meantime the fix is easy and works...for me:)
  7. Agree. After using ownhammer, red wirez, 3sigma...you name it, I'm now back to the stock cabs because I find them easier to tweak, and in the end sounding better than 3rd party IR's. So, not sure what willjrock is doing, but he's doing something wrong.

    Somebody want to clone this tone?

    No-brainer. Easily achieved in the Helix as well. I have both. Well, that is, I got rid of the axe-fx, so I "had" both. One thing though....you might actually like the ambience coming from the microphones picking up the actual room, where they held the conference. That of course adds some life to the tone:)
  9. Not sure what you mean. An IR is a capture of a certain mic or combi of several mikes. So in order to choose "no mic", you just bypass the block.

    Vintage Digital Delay

    Yes, some people seem to get it. Not sure how they manage to provoke it, it doesn't happen to me. There's been some posts and a lot of discussion about it on the facebook page. Anyhow, Line6 is aware, so I'm sure it's a bug they'll fix shortly ;-)
  11. Not better....just different. And my simple answer to this thread is; No. I'm very happy with the reverbs :)

    Snapshot icon taking up too much text space in scribble strip

    Some like it as it is, some would like to have the icon removed/smaller. It's not a biggie, so no need to "count your blessings" and all that. It's a simple request, and probably very easy to fix in a future update. No one would ever be unsure if they are in snapshot mode or stompbox mode. Snaps would be named typically "clean", "solo" etc....and stomps would have "delay", chorus" etc. So I appreciate that someone brought it up.

    Snapshot icon taking up too much text space in scribble strip

    Agree. My first thought. Otherwise, I love the snapshots:)

    I Was Excited About The New Mesa MkIV...But Instead:

    Didn't work for me. Too muddy. So still sticking to the Soldano here ;)

    Why only 60 seconds for the looper?

    Why would you want to loop more than 60 (120) secs? Typically you loop a 4 bar or 8 bar pattern, not a full song. Anything more than 60/120 secs is what I'd call extraordinary features, and then you buy an extern device for such a thing. Just like you would do if you want a really smart harmonizer or any other pedal that are made to do one thing only. Anyway, my 2 cents on this:)
