  1. I put together a video some time ago showing how I created a Marshall type solo tone. It covered humbucking and single coil gtrs. Have a look. It might help. Cheers Peter.
  2. Yes, I agree. The Native clip does have a slight increase in upper mid. It could have something to do with different input levels as it's very tricky to get them identical. From a feel point of view, once I'd found the correct input level on Native, it felt pretty similar. It all depends on your audio interface latency. I managed to get mine to just about nothing. Cheers.
  3. I put this track together using the Helix Floor Hardware version plugged into the DAW (Sonar Platinum) and then created the same track using Helix Native. I used my Plexi Crunch Patch and played the parts separately. I've tried to match the levels as best as I can but other than that there was no post processing. I brought my patch into Helix Native and tracked the parts. I set up my audio interface so that there was no latency and played as though I was using the hardware Helix. I then re tracked the parts with the same patch in the Helix Floor and recorded them again. I'm really impressed with how close these tones are (I know that Line 6 has said that they're supposed to be identical but I just had to see for myself) Cheers Peter.

  4. Thanks for the support, Nick! it's always nice to get positive feedback on my patches. I've had a great response so far and I'm glad that they worked for you. Cheers Peter.
  5. Thanks for the feedback, Pers. Yes, I agree. Keep it simple. I've had great feedback on this Patch Pack so far. Cheers Peter.
  6. Thanks, jbuhajla, I've always believed that less is more. There is a bit of eq going on behind the scenes though...
  7. Hi everyone, I’ve finally finished Part 4 in my Helix video series. It’s been quite a while since I put up a video. This video demonstrates some of my own patches that I use regularly in my studio etc. I’ve received so many messages asking for these patches that I decided to put together a Patch Collection. I’m selling them for a small fee but am also offering another way of obtaining them. If you purchase my latest album “Wide Open Spaces†from CD Baby and include your email address, I’ll email the Patch Pack to you free of charge. I’ve tried to get the best of both worlds in that I created these patches in my studio at fairly high levels but then also booked some time at a Music Store in SA to pump them through a JBLVX900 PA system at very high volume to hear what they sound like. I had to tweak a few of the patches but am now happy with them – both in the studio and to Front of House. I did upload a video of the Music Store session about a week ago. These patches were also used extensively on my album. All of the links are on my website (in my signature). I hope you enjoy. Cheers Peter.
  8. Yep, nearly there. The demo video is just about done and i'm almost done getting the website up to date. A couple more days and it'll all be uploaded. Thanks for the interest. Cheers.
  9. Yes, I couldn't stop smiling after the session. It's quite something to hear a wall of Marshalls coming from a modeler plugged straight into a desk. I've never had the opportunity to hear the Helix cranked to such high levels. I wanted to completely eliminate any trace of Fletcher Munson effects and hear what the Helix could do with no limits as far as levels are concerned. This thing delivers in spades...
  10. I've been putting together a collection of my favourite patches in the Helix for release and they're sounding pretty good. I did however want to get an idea what they would sound like plugged directly into a big PA at very high volume. I booked some time at a music store here in SA and used their PA room for a few hours. I plugged into a double JBL VX900 system consisting of twin 18's and twin VX900 tops. We set the channels flat, global eq off and went for it. The idea was to get great tone which was accurate and transparent straight from the Helix. We managed to achieve this fairly easily as my patches that were created in the studio came across quite well in a "front of house" scenario. I was completely blown away. We ran a camera to try and record some of it but the levels were very loud and the camera mic battled. I did manage to keep some of the footage and put together a short clip to demonstrate my patch called "Plexi Crunch". It's not a mild crunch. It's more like a Plexi on steroids. The audio is straight from the PA and no processing was applied. Cheers Peter.
  11. Don't ever underestimate the Hd500X''s capabilities. It's still one of the best out there. The tones are all in there. I have a Helix but used the both HD500X and the Helix on my last album. Needless to say, the tracks recorded with the POD sounded excellent and stayed on the album.
  12. If you want to get the best out of the HD500X, you're gonna have to learn how to use the eqs. No getting away from it, I'm afraid.
  13. I don't trust my online connection and would rather do it offline but I can't seem to find the file. Can anyone help? Thanks, Peter.
  14. Part 3 in my series on the Helix back in 2016 demonstrates exactly that. It shows how to sweep to find the "rogue" frequencies and how to remove them.
