  1. This update is seriously amazing! I wasn't expecing to see so many cool new gear pieces in there. Amazing job Line 6! I made a little demo video to showcase some of my favorite new features:
  2. Thanks for checking the comparison! Ripping the audio isn't really what I'd like people to do tbh... I did add timecodes in the description so that people can skip between the segments.
  3. While we're waiting for the next firmware I thought I'd share something fun! It all started when I wanted to make a comparison of all my 26 tube amps. Yes, I have a lot of amps haha but that doesn't stop me from also really loving my Helix's. Anyway, so I was working on this comparison/shoot-out thing but then I realised that it would be a lot of fun and very interesting to also include my Helix rack. Just to see (or prove really) how well it stacks up when compared to all those real amps. I personally think that the Helix did a tremendous job here. Fun fact: I chose some amp models that I haven't used often (or at all) before and also amps that model none of the real amps in the comparison. For the simple reason that all the amps are unique here so I also wanted the Helix to be unique, if that makes any sense. Anyway, I'd be happy to talk about this for hours but I'll post the comparison. I would love to know your brutally honest thoughts, did you also think the Helix did just as well as the amps?
  4. in the California Duo:
  5. Hey guys, Got my Helix Rack + Control integrated into my recording setup as well as my HX Stomp and HX Effects (not to mention Helix Native). I'm really happy with my setup now because it's really flexible. My Helix rack is my favorite piece of the setup as it's going to give me so much creative freedom and inspiration. So I thought it would be fun to make a little rundown/walk-through of my recording setup and wanted to share this here with you guys.
  6. Hey everybody, happy holidays to you all! The Line 6 Helix (Native, HX Stomp etc) is my favorite amp modeling platform and because of the holidays I wanted to give something back to the awesome Helix community. So I made this video. It features all my electric guitars. I have 24 guitars and they're all pretty different. Some are baritones, some are 7 or 8 strings, some have single coils, some are active etc. I wanted to feature them all in one single video and share all the preset settings so you can use them with your own Line 6 device. I tried to use a lot of different amp models although Badonk got used a couple of times because it's just so awesome for metal haha. I even tried some amps that I never used before and they all sounded great to me. There are clean, crunch, rhythm and lead clips in there. Happy Holidays to you all! I hope you enjoy: PS: I would love to know how these presets translate on your end! We all use different guitars and pickups so that would be very interesting to hear about...
  7. Yep, that's also how I work often. That's why Native is also so nice, just the added functionality when you want to change or automate something during the mixing process.
  8. For sure! What kind of approach do you prefer in general?
  9. Hey guys, Helix is straight up lovely and you know it! I felt like making a video that would sum up everything that's great about this platform: I'd love to know how you build your presets too. I know guys who need at least 12 blocks to get a good tone and others 2, it's interesting to me that approaches can vary so much. Do you prefer the simple approach like me, or do you like to add a bunch of blocks to finetune your sound?
  10. Hey guys, Made a new HX Effects demonstration video. I'm running it in 4 cm method with the amps speaker out going to a loabox which is then going back into the HX FX. The HX FX is taking care of all the effects as well as IR loading with an OwnHammer 212 ORNG M25 IR. Love how this sounds! It would be amazing if Line 6 decided to add more Orange amps to the Helix platforms... I guess we'll see.
  11. It's interesting to me to see what people like! I didn't really like the Lepou one at all since the low end doesn't seem to have any real definition.
  12. Hey guys! I recently got a Dual Rectifier. Simply because I've always wanted one. Ever since reading about it in a POD manual actually. So Line 6 inspired me to get the real amp, which is cool! I had to make a comparison so I thought I'd share it here too. I compare the recto to Helix but also to pod farm which is surprisingly good still! :) Don't want to reveal to much of my thoughts just yet but it's safe to say that Line 6 did a great job ;)
  13. Hey guys, just released episode 3! Thanks to Yosh for providing the DI's!
  14. Hey guys! I LOVE Line 6's modeling and I will very likely use their amp modeling until the day I die! However, I hadn't owned a 'proper' tube amp in years and I thought HX FX would be a great centerpiece and brain of my new tube rig. So far I'm really really loving this thing. It sounds amazing of course but the features and routing options etc are really incredible. It didn't take much effort to integrate this pedal into the new tube amp rig. For this first video the setup is quite simple. It's a metal track with mainly rhythm guitars but the HX has a big part to play in the sound. Not only do I use it for a noise gate and a flanger, it also takes care of the OwnHammer IR loading and room reverb. For this I'm using a type of 4cm but I explain it better in the video. Hope you enjoy this video, there are many more videos with Hx Effects to come!
  15. Hey guys, I love to use my JTV-59 for classic-ish rock tones. I almost always just use the magnetic pickups since they do such a good job. Pair that with the Helix's Placater Dirty amp and OwnHammer 412 FMAN IR's and BOOM, you've got tone! Check it out in this video:
