  1. For me, it's about trying to make 'live' sound more natural and removing the compromises inherent even in good pickups. I have a fall ltd Taylor koa from 2005 with the first generation expression system. It does sound good, but flavoring it with an IR takes it from good to great. I'm just about to get one of these so I don't have to lug the Helix around for small gigs where I'm acoustic only: This isn't a substitute for good recording practices in the studio, it's an enhancement for live. I'm looking forward to making my own IRs and making my guitar sound better on stage.
  2. It appears that all of our DT series amps are now 'legacy' products: https://line6.com/amps/ Does this make it 'vintage, collectible'? I'll hang on to mine just in case, don't think I'm ready for FRFR just yet.
  3. Hi. Perhaps take a look at some of Jason Sadites videos. He's really good at breaking down which setting does what. Here he is 'dialling in' delays: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5SKwTArpaUQ How this helps
  4. Hi Sdahe Can you tell us any examples of this that you like? With the information above it is hard to really help. What sounds great to one person sounds meh to another - that's why there are so many amps and pedals to choose from. If there is a certain song that gets you in the ballpark (ideally link to a YouTube clip or similar), folks here will come in with suggestions. There are so many amps and pedals in the Helix that there's not much it can't do.
  5. I shared the process I used when I made my own IRS for my DT25 amp here: DT25 IRs Hope this helps.
  6. Ha! Not my video @Soundog - just came across it and thought I should share. It has inspired me to look at some of my patches again.
  7. I Hi all Just wanted to share this as it's made me think differently about combining Variax and Helix. I also have DT25 so I'm thinking path one to DT25 and path two to mixer:
  8. I already have a knob on my guitar for this, just next to the 'louder /quieter' knob there's one that makes strings sound 'new/old'. Am I the only one that has one of these?
  9. Thanks Brue58ski. Good ears to you too! I always play on 11s. I hope this exercise helped the OP a little further on his tone journey.
  10. I echo the thoughts above for DT amp users. I can have global EQ if I use 1/4" out, but then I lose the ability to change the power amp settings with my Helix because I'm not using AES/EBU. Or, I can have the really cool DT power amp switching from my Helix, but then I lose the global EQ. So I have to choose which features I don't want to use which is a pain because I would like both of them. The only solution I can see is three duplicate set lists. One for 1/4" out (and I'll just have to remember to fiddle with the amp between songs), or L6 Link out with a 'neutral' EQ for each preset. One for L6 Link out with a 'brighter' EQ in each preset, and one for L6 Link out with a 'darker' EQ in each preset. It's either that or have two eqs in every patch to go 'bright' or 'dark' based on the room we're playing in. Neither of the above lets me tune the amp to the room at sound check. I have voted for all I can to do with this on Ideascale.
  11. Hi Amanda I think it would work. The LT should work fine as a USB audio interface with your Mac, but it does not have a micropjone input. If your mic has an XLR output you will need an impedence matching transformer like one of these: https://www.shure.com/en-EU/products/accessories/a95uf There are much simpler pieces of kit that will let you do this than using your Helix though. A simple USB audio interface like this one may be better: https://www.behringer.com/product.html?modelCode=P0AVV Just plug the USB into your Mac, plug the mic in the front and go for it. Hope this helps.
  12. At last someone has responded! I'm not going to give the results just yet but your analysis is interesting. I did use the 1/4" out rather than VDI as I was wasn't going through Helix for the recordings above. I used to use Variax with POD HD500X and always used the mic pre with it. The one in Helix is OK too. Live I'll always use a compressor and a couplebof of EQs. I have a 'more mids' and a 'brighter' EQ set up on switches depending on which other instruments are being heard in the mix too. I think this is the key thing for the OP. What else is in the mix that you are trying to avoid so you can be heard? That's the place to start with acoustic tones.
