  1. Well that IS the name of the game there right? :) But seriously DSP is exactly why I am looking for an external solution.
  2. You’re right. It’s the inability to go up that also turned me off. The Ricochet is the pedal that won’t do 1/2 steps but will go up or down (polyphonically ai believe). The Whammy DT will do both but damn it’s pricey (if you don’t need the whammy) and the worse part it’s big . I wish it was in the standard Whammy footprint.
  3. The name on it doesn’t matter. I had said further up that the reason I didn’t go with the Drop is because I need to be able to go up as well as down, and to my knowledge you cannot do 1/2 steps with the Drop. While the full step would also come in handy I think the inability to do 1/2 steps is the deal breaker.
  4. DSP hogging is the reason I’d like a stand-alone pedal. But I am excited about the prospect. I wouldn’t even worry about it if Digitech made a pedal that could go up or down 1/2 and whole steps. The Pitchfork does it but like I had said it ads this weird “thing” to the tone, almost like a metallic 10ms reverb, but kinda akin to the old Variax Resonator or Banjo sounds. It’s hard to explain.
  5. I also posted this in the stomp section but thought I would post here also. I think it would be awesome for L6 to make a pedal to rival the EHX Pitchfork, Digitech drop etc... I already use the pitch shifter in the Helix LT to detune my guitar up or down 1/2 step. Its not perfect, it can be a bit artifacty but its not horrible, and gets me through in a pinch. I hear the digitech drop is about the best for this but I need to ne able to go up or down by 1/2 step increments so I tried the EHX Pitchfork. Its ok but adds a weird resonance to the tone like the resonator on my old variax 300. As well as the Helix does I'd think a dedicated pedal could probably nail it.

    Stomp Box mode

    I’ve been away from the chats for a while. Are we at a point for the LT where we can use the bottom row of FS to select presets and the top to select effects?
  8. I try to! Mostly a metal head, So I don’t play like a normal worship guitarist. I don’t noodle near as much, I try to keep the music sounding full but give it room to breathe when it needs to.
  9. Their presets have been invaluable for playing with the worship team at church. I tweak them, but they save me so much time. I could just load them in and go on a Sunday morning with no tweaks if I wanted. A lot of worships guys have been going through this boutique snob thing for a while but, I’ve been seeing more and more looking into or going with platforms like the Helix and for good reason. I can carry my LT in a bag On my back, guitar in hand, in ears in my pocket... done!
  10. Thank you for the reply. I think I agree wholeheartedly with you. I’ve purchased a couple of individual presets from Worship Tutorials but mostly for the fx and they were only like 2.99 a piece. Ive had my Helix for a couple of years now and I still struggle with it, for me it’s not the tone as much as the distortion and feel. My Axe FX feels like you’re playing the real thing and the way the amp breaks up and the overall distortion/gain structure is like the real amp, I feel that is missing in the Helix, along with realistic sustain, and clarity and note separation (same thing I know) of the real amps. If there was an update that addressed that and improved it I’d be Helix all the way!
  11. So I was looking through some Helix related stuff, til now I’ve not considered Helix a viable option for quality recording, but lately I’ve been pondering selling my Axe FX and going the vst route. I’ve had Helix + Native for a couple of years now, and keep seeing people that are selling “Helix Preset Packs” for example the ML Plexi pack. Other than the IR, what can they really offer that makes the price worth it? With the Axe FX is can get it because Tone Matching and advanced parameters but the Helix has neither.

    IR’s for Bass

    Redwirez were the first guitar IR’s I ever used so I may check them out.

    IR’s for Bass

    I’ve been searching and come across some free IR’s I am going to try. Have you checked out the Torpedo Wall of sound? It seems to have some cool features like poweramp and room simulation and to get the license you just gotta buy 1 IR which I think is around $8us.

    IR’s for Bass

    Hey all, what are you guys using as Impulse Responses for Bass? I have Redwirez, Ownhammer and more for guitar, I’m thinking that ML is going to be my go to for guitars moving forward, the quality of Mikko (the plug in and the guy) just can’t be beat, I wish he made a bass IR or 2.
  15. @datacommando I finally got the chance to mess with this preset yesterday. I know it’s been a while. So here’s what I got to say: 1- Thank you for taking the time to put it together, that was super awesome of you. 2-YOU ARE THE MAN! It’s doing just what I want it to do for bass. I threw it on a bounce of the bass, added a stereo widener then bounced it to its own track. Then blended it with the Un-effected track. BAM!!! 3- Did I mention YOU'RE THE MAN!?!? Thank you very much!
