  1. As much as I love Helix and everything it offers, both in terms of variety and practicality, I doubt I will ever get rid of my amp heads, especially my Orange OR100, which through my Torpedo Live offers a warmth, thickness, responsiveness and grit that none of my Helix tones can deliver (or any of the 100's of demos I heard online). :-) But still - Helix is a hell of a tool with a load of options, but I certainly do feel a big difference changing from real amp to Helix, or the other way around. :-) (Edit: the above is mostly regarding recording at home)
  2. Theses presets sounds great - when will they be out? :-)
  3. I think they sound so familiar, and it's pretty hard to hear which units/software is which, but I will nevertheless start the party with this: GIT A - Kemper GIT B - Helix GIT C - Peavey 6505 GIT D - TSE X50 Ampsim :-)
  4. I am pondering the same thing. I have been looking at Apogee One, and wonder if anybody knows if it would be able to offer the same quality input as the Helix?
  5. Thanks for your answer, frodebro! Does it matter if the preamp block is to the left or right of the send/return block?
  6. Hello all - maybe someone can help me out. How should I set everything up, if I wish to use a Helix preamp with 4 cable method with my amp (that has an effects loop)? Let's say I want to use the Archetype preamp, where should the preamp block be placed in the chain in relation to the send/return block? And would cabels be connected the same way as you see on most 4 cable method schematics? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hello all, Not sure if this has been covered, but I have the floor Helix and am planning to get the Native at the discounted price for owners at $99, when it comes out. But what happens if I sell my Helix floor later on - will I still be able to use Native, without having to buy the non-discounted version? Thinking how the licence will behave, when being registered to a new user. Thanks
  8. Oh yeah, and of course I'm looking forward to real time reamping (if you can call it that) - no need to settle on amps and effects when recording, as you can always go back and easily change and experiment afterwards. :-)
  9. In my case, I would be able to leave my Helix at rehearsal, not having to bring my Helix back and forth a couple of times a week with public transport, and still be able play, tweak and record at home or where ever I want, and only bringing the Helix out for gigs. :-) And I do like the idea of just bringing my laptop (which I almost always carry around anyways) to a friends house, recording with him record in Helix quality, without having to bring the rather heavy and expensive Helix always. :-)
  10. This is great news. I just wonder if my laptop will be able run 3 or 4 tracks with Helix devices simultaneously, but in worst case, you could of course just "bounce" or "mixdown" the tracks as you go. :-) 2 things I wonder about: - If I buy Helix Native with the $99 discount, because I already own a Helix floor, what would happen if I sold my Helix? I guess the Helix Native license would become void, as the physical device would be reregistered by another user? - There will probably be a "DSP lock" when making patches in Native, so you are sure that the patches will work properly on the physical Helix, but I wonder if it will be possible to exceed that limit for patches, only for use in Native? (badly explained, but I hope you get my meaning)
  11. I wanted to ask the same thing. :-) Update would be great, but even a new pack with the new amps would be awesome too. ;-)
  12. Hi, As the title says, I'm wondering if there really are updates to most of the factory presets after the recent update? I have noticed a couple of people stating that the factory presets now sound considerably better, but I'm wondering if this is just a placebo effect, as the release notes says: "- Minor updates to the Factory Preset bundle". :-) Thanks!
  13. Would love to try some of your patches - I myself love doom/sludge/stoner, and I having quite a challenge getting that sound on direct recording with the Helix. :-)
  14. I have a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 ohm, and I think they sound really good directly in the Helix - all around just an awesome pair of cans:
