  1. Hey guys, Today we have a comparison and sound test to see just how close the Helix technology can get to the real thing. We are comparing the Ibanez TS 808 Tube Screamer to the Line 6 Scream 808 pedal model. Spoiler, it sounds pretty indistinguishable. I recorded a couple riffs, first with the Ibanez TS808 Tube Screamer and then with the Line 6 Scream 808 model inside of Helix or in this case, the HX Stomp. The riffs are taken from my latest single, NAHR-SU-SIZ-EM, which can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, and everywhere music is sold or streamed.

  3. Hey Guys! I got my hands on an HX Stomp and today we are going to run through how to get up and running using it as your audio interface on a Windows 10 PC and with Presonus Studio One 4.0 I walk you through setup and how to record the processed guitar as well as the DI or, Direct Input so that you can reamp at a later time.

  5. Hey Guys, Today we are going over the tone I created using the Line 6 HX Stomp using Ownhammer Impulse Responses. I go over each block, which IR I use as well as how to create snapshots so that you can use this tone as your main rhythm tone as well as a lead tone. If you have any questions, leave them down below and I'll do my best to help you out. Thanks again for all the support.

  8. Hey Guys, Today I go over the lead tone I use with my Line 6 Helix. The tone uses the Line 6 Badonk amp model paired with Owhammer Impulse Responses. I go over the settings as well as demonstrate it in a mix. Thanks so much for all the support.

  10. Today we finally have the tone explanation for my Line 6 Helix Ambient Clean Tone. This tone uses the Line 6 Jazz Rivet 120 which is modeled after the Roland Jazz Chorus 120. Per usual, I am using Ownhammer Impulse Responses, specifically the OH 412 ZLNG V30 D57M+RFAT which is a blended IR of the Zilla 412 and is part of the Massively Multi-Mic set of the Zilla 412. Thanks again for everyone's support. I truly appreciate it.
  11. Hey guys, I've been sharing helix related material on here for some time. I recently released a solo, instrumental EP entitled Ample Chattels. All guitar and bass was recorded using my Helix Rack. Just wanted to share it with the community. Thanks so much for the support! https://nickhillmakesmusic.fanlink.to/bWip
  12. Today I walk through my guitar recording setup and my workflow. I've had a lot of questions so I figured we would go back to basics and see how it is we set stuff up. Here is the workflow: Line 6 Helix rack - UA Apollo Twin Duo - iMac - Presonus Studio One 4.0
  13. Today we take a look at the Duncan PowerStage 170. A solid-state, 170 watt, floorboard sized power amp perfect for powering a guitar cab with the Line 6 Helix or the effects processor of your choice. I ended up using it to do a shootout of a few of my mics… Shure SM 57 Dynamic Shure SM 7B Cardioid Dynamic Blue Bluebird Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Audio Technica AT 2035 Large-Diaphragm Condenser I routed DI signals from my DAW, through the Line 6 Helix Rack, and into the Seymour Duncan PowerStage powering an Overton 212. Thanks to my buddy Patrick for loaning me this beast. The mics were tracked using my Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo MkI The PowerStage is great. It gets SUPER LOUD with plenty of headroom for stage sound. I kept the 3 band EQ flat for this test. Some pretty great results. I was blown away at how these mics sound. **MAKE NOTE** I kept referring to the Audio Technica AT 2035 as the “ATH 2035.” Apologies My buddy Patrick aka “Gunderslam” https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoZORROIhtqek7Tl329vGPg Seymour Duncan PowerStage 170 https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PowerStage170--seymour-duncan-powerstage-170-170-watt-pedal-board-guitar-amp-head Shure SM 57 https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SM57--shure-sm57 Shure SM 7B https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SM7B--shure-sm7b-cardioid-dynamic-vocal-microphone Blue Bluebird https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BluebirdSL--blue-microphones-bluebird-sl-large-diaphragm-condenser-microphone Audio Technica ATH 2035 https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/AT2035--audio-technica-at2035-large-diaphragm-condenser-microphone nickhillmakesmusic@gmail.com
  14. Hey Guys, Today I have yet another modern metal tone using the Line 6 Helix, Ownhammer Impulse Responses and the Line 6 Badonk amp model. I have two IR's stacked in this one using the phase trick I demonstrated in my video about IR's and how I use them. The song in this video is an original with the working title of Simplicity. This is one of my favorite, recent tracks. Thanks again for all the positivity and support and as always, if you have any questions or ideas, let me know in the comments. I try and get back to everyone.
  15. Hey Guys, I get a lot of question about IR's (impulse responses) and how to use them or how I use them. So today I hit on 3 key topics to help explain a bit about it. We touch briefly on what an IR is, where I prefer to get the ones I use and 1. Loading and Organizing 2. Mixing Mic's / Stacking of IR's and checking phase 3. IR overload (Having TOO MANY options) If you guys have any questions, drop a comment and I will do my best to answer them. Thanks so much for all the support. nickhillmakesmusic@gmail.com https://www.facebook.com/nickhillmakesmusic
