  1. Also worth noting: I don't have a YouTube, SoundCloud, or anything. I don't give my music away for free. Would you not download my tones because I play live for people and money instead of streaming for likes. Plus, there is a place for people to leave notes. If they want to post a link, they do.
  2. One night, I was doing a show with [evil corporation]. And I had the opportunity to play on Brian May's rig. I didn't sound like Brian May. On another occasion, I've gotten to play with Les Paul. I sounded jazzy, but not like Les Paul. The point is - (assuming good faith) people create tones and post tones that they believe to be accurate. But they create them using their ears, their gear, their fingers. You don't have their ears, their gear, or their fingers. You will never sound like them. Even tones offered from YouTube videos don't transfer from user to user. It is just a fact of life. Sure, the idea of modeling tech is to be able to reproduce tone. But there are some variables that don't transfer.
  3. It can be done on the 500, so I will assume it can be done on the Helix. The exact procedure - I don't know, because I don't use the tone (or the helix). But, it boils down to using a split signal, which you join at the end (if you want one signal). Create a dual signal chain and pan one left and pan one right. Take one of the frequency filters (such as anything below 400hz) and send it to the right. Add your octave. The left will be your guitar. Add the effects you want. You are basically creating a 'crossover' --- maybe the Helix has an crossover? Everything gets sent to the left. But anything below your G-string (which comes in at 391, with G# at 415) will be sent to the right, and will appear an octave lower.
  4. but, to answer the question: there are plenty of leslie and roto effects in the go

  6. then it is something you are doing with the parameters.
  7. It is the basic scenario for all Beatles, Elvis, Buddy Holly, etc era of music. Individual distortion pedals did not exist. Nor did separate gain stages of an amplifier.
  8. as with many songs of that era, you turn your amp volume up to ten, which creates a natural distortion. you use a guitar with single coils, which adds fuzz you control the overall volume (and tone) via the guitar's volume and tone knobs

    no. just 1 variax. although, I have no idea if a variax can be used via a splitter.
  10. yeah, what he said if you want to use amp distortion, then simply plug your guitar into your amp use the amp's fx loop the way it was intended - to go into your effects and back
  11. First and foremost - it doesn't really matter if the light is on/off or off/on, as long as you know that light on means X and light off means Y. Am I wrong. Each click turns something on and something off. So it isn't really like an on-off button. It is a position lit and position unlit button. However, to answer the question - the light is based on the first effect in the chain. If you want the light to work in the opposite direction, swap block positions.
  12. with all that being said.... That is not a problem with the L6. It will need to be fixed via your computer. *In the 'old days' we would hear noises like that when copying an audio cd. We learned to make an image of the disc, check it, and then burn the image. It was nice to burn a disc in 30 seconds, but those speeds didn't allow for corrections.
  13. 1. videos uploaded to another site (like youtube) and then linked back here have no limit. 2. videos don't need to be 4K for something like this. You could easily get 2 minutes of video if you adjust your settings. 3. we don't need video for audio demonstrations. high quality audio files would easily land under 4mb. no, it makes perfect sense. there's no reason for L6 to be hosting people's files. In fact, if you think that is lame... there's also a combined total file size limit. It might not be a problem for one time posters, but what happens if have been contributing for 10 years. it is still being sold in 2021, so I assume people are using it. *it was still being made prior to the Plandemic allowing governments to force everyone out of work. I can't speak as to if they plan on continuing to make it once the people wise up and rise up. This isn't the Helix forum. Screw them.
  14. Who are you kidding. This place is full of haters. Self hate, usually, which displays itself as brand hate. But there are brand haters as well.
  15. 1. Pod Go forum dataway ==> 2. Yes, higher gain stages result in higher fuzz/hiss/hum type noises. Assuming it isn't normal noise that we all hear, could this be a ground loop or shielding issue?
