  1. Super. innovative. way. Used like 30 years already. :D Chad is good sales man - he called well known technique "OTB" and everybody want to try OTB - "super innovative way to produce a very usable tone on the Helix without using CabSims or IR's." like "- Have you ever tried parametric eq as a speaker sim? - Pfffff. It sucks. Why would I do this in IRs era? - But have you tried Chad's OTB? - Sure. It's awesome and very innovative!" This article could help to tune eq block and turn it into "Virtual Speaker Cabinet":
  2. PRS Archon is GREAT. Add some screamer as booster. With proper Cab/IR settings you could have that "modern" sound.
  3. Not sure about sound, but tuner is better for sure!
  4. There are SO many free software tuners out there, but people still want tuner in the editor. Why? :)
  5. Same here. Adriatic Delay is just awesome. PS I'm playing modern metal. :)
  6. c'mon guys! Do you really not hear any difference in your patches after updates??? All my patches sound way better after every firmware update! ;)
  7. Simple rule: Never ever do firmware update before upcoming gigs. Easy!
  8. Line 6 gave us IR load capability in very first release - this is infinite possibilities for cab modeling.
  9. Well, I have the same experience with real amps. ;) The are few original schematics in tube amps world, everything else is just modifications.
  10. If you don't like your Helix - just sell it, man, and let go! ;)
  11. This thread goes on just because we do not have new firmware update ;)
  12. I might be missing somethings in this topic... So, the commercial patches exist because gas is expensive in Luxembourg? :D
  13. Exactly! :) As for me - I like to share my experience. If I did cool patch for myself (or at least I think it's cool ;) ) it's a pleasure to me to share it with everybody. And actually this is what I do for Ukrainian/russian speaking Helix community. :) Many people post youtube videos where they explain how to build patches. (like Chad Huskey - )They are spending time on creating patches, they are spending time on video recording, narrating, editing, etc. just to share they experience with everybody for nothing. Much appreciate their work.
  14. But patches are already DONE. First of all you did it for yourself. Why ask "small fee" for these patches? To compensate time which you spent on doing something for yourself? :) It's not the same as paying for guitar lesson at ALL, as in case of a guitar lesson teacher spend his own time exclusively on you. :) No offense. Just don't understand this kind of thinking.

    High/low cuts

    Keep global equalizer flat. Tune patch using cut on cab. Use global cuts in case you connect helix to acoustic system other than you used for patch tuning and in case you feel you need to cut something :).

    best I.R'S

    I'm using approach from above video and it works GREAT for metal (well, I do not play anything else :D )
  17. Just imagine your first snapshot is zero snapshot - and this is done! :)
  18. I've read it there, mate: Look for "Helix Hybrid Cabs" article. here is a quote: "We call the speaker emulations in Helix “hybrid cabsâ€, because they use a number of proprietary algorithms to reproduce the same frequency and dynamic accuracy typically seen in a 2048-point impulse response, but at far lower DSP usage."
  19. roscoe5, that's not my video, I've just posted it here. :) Your approach with mixing dual cabs by changing cab's level sounds reasonable. I'll give it a try.
  20. Sure. But IRs consume more DSP, they have to be reloaded after updates, you have to find the right one between millions of IRs available, etc. PS I use IRs though! :D
  21. I'm using this approach for stock cabs now: This makes them sound even better than IRs.
  22. yes, you can use Bluetooth at same time.
  23. I'm using iLoud with Helix at home and it works great. I'm connecting iLoud to Phones output of Helix to have stereo output.
  24. I'm using mono block like gain after dual cab. But I'd like to have mono option :)
