Well, I turned 40 just last month and when searching for a present for my wife to buy me I saw some great reviews of the Helix. Job sorted and she kindly purchased one for me. At that time I had been a Les Paul plugged directly into a Marshall for years, but I had always heard great things about such products as the AXE-FX but couldn't justify the Â£2500 for one as I would then need a power amp and speakers etc etc.
Anyway, once I got the Helix home I decided that I wanted to utilise the full capabilities of it and purchased an FRFR speaker (the recently released Matrix FR12) after some research on them. So now I'm set up with the gear, but still with no idea. I purchased all the patches from Glenn Delaune (who I have to say has been top notch with his individual support for sorting out so that the patches work correctly) and set about getting some cracking tones!
My query is, am I getting those cracking tones or do any of you have any tips for improving them (I know tones are subjective, but I'm speaking generally), global EQ, EQ in individual patches, rolling off high end etc etc.
In fact any tips for a relative newbie to all this technology would be most welcome. I don't want to know everything, but perhaps between you all you could come up with a top ten tips for new users of Helix. Apologies if this has already been done, but there's a lot of posts to read through!
