  1. I got my hands on a Line 6 POD Go and this thing rips. It uses the same Helix amp modeling technology. Although it has some limited routing and output options, I'd say for about 90% of use cases, this is the perfect piece of Helix gear.
  2. New video up on the channel! Jinjer has quickly become one of my favorite bands and in this video, I attempt to sound like Roman, their awesome guitar player, using the Line 6 Helix and of course, OwnHammer Impulses.
  3. Hey gang, today we shootout 8 High Gain Amp models inside of the Line 6 Helix Rack using the same Ownhammer impulse ( OH 412 TRAD V70 121-00 )
  4. Hey gang. I get a lot of questions regarding Impulse Responses (IR) Stock cabs, What IRs to use, the cost of IRs etc. so I found a couple good, FREE packs, made a metal tone, tracked a few riffs and walkthrough it all. Hopefully, it helps someone. Have a great Monday!
  5. Good morning fellow Helix users. I created a video on which I demo and walk through a metal tone using stock cabs (no IRs) geared towards low and drop-tuning (using my Solar Guitars baritone). I hope it helps someone find their sound. Cheers
  6. New VIdeo up on the channel! Finally got around to an overview of my Killswitch Engage tone. Thanks for all your patience on this. When I started the channel, I got on a roll with other videos and left some of these tones behind so it's been fun going back and finishing up the overview. Cheer!
  7. After far too much procrastination, I've finally gone back and done a tone overview video on my Metallica - Dream No More tone with the Helix. Thanks to all my patient pals for politely asking me to get this done. This is for you guys. Hope you all are well in Helix land
  8. I finally got around to going over my Foo Fighters tone! Only like a year late. Thanks for the CONSTANT reminders, offers for money and begging to get me this done. Here it is gang.
  9. Hey gang. I posted a video on how I approach building a tone for low and drop-tuned guitars. It's long but I'm hoping it can be helpful to some people as I do get a ton of questions on the topic. Cheers!
  10. I’ve had a blast getting to know my newest guitar Of course, the Helix slays low tuned metal tones with ease. Cheers my Dudes and be well!
  11. After jamming on some Hatebreed (Looking Down the Barrel of Today), I came up with this tone. In the video, I run through a track I recorded with said tone and also walk-through the tone.
  12. Ok, I realize it isn't as low-gain as most would like but for me, it's pretty low gain. Pretty articulate and gritty. I love it and was inspired. Made a video about it with a play-through and a walk-through of the tone. Cheers gang!
  13. I've released my new single, Black as Metal. It is of course available anywhere music can be purchased and streamed and it is also available for sale on bandcamp. Spotify https://open.spotify.com/album/6o6L1povBrP0JVb9ZrhAsw?si=WsnDjbHeSdmsvuH-5iF1Sw Apple Music https://music.apple.com/us/album/black-as-metal-single/1508432786 Bandcamp https://nickhillmakesmusic.bandcamp.com/releases Thank you guys for all the continued support.
  14. Hey guys! The new Helix firmware 2.9 is here and it came with the purple channel from the amazing Revv Generator 120. Brutal sounding for sure. I put together this track with of course, my Solar Guitars A 1.6 Artist and I am using Ownhammer Impulses. This thing is sounding brutal and for those of you who are curious, it will be my monthly Helix patch that I make available to all of my supporters on Patreon as well as my new MEMBERS here on YouTube. Thanks for watching. Thanks for all the continued support. I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy. Cheers guys.
  15. In today's video I go over my Clean and Bright bass tone that I pretty much start with when I'm writing or recording any music other than my metal productions. After a play through of a track I put together, I go over all of the settings inside of Helix. I am using the Ampeg SVT-4 PRO amp block. I am also using Ownhammer Impulses in this one from their Ampeg pack. https://www.ownhammer.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=190&products_id=354&zenid=3b5832f68c08a3b983ca8799c6b347f6 I hope this is helpful and you can use it as a jumping off point for your own productions. Be safe guys and I hope you're all doing well. Love Nick
