    Autowha

    I have a preset that works well for auto wha. If you want it, PM me and I'll send it.
  2. LOL - I actually really like the pairing of the ceramic and alnico type pups. But I have guitars the other way too.
  3. We're of like mind! I have fishmans in 4 guitars, including 7 and 8 string ESP baritones. The 7 string came with a ceramic in the bridge and alnico in the neck - as you said, they should all come that way. it's a perfect match. I also have fishmans in my strat and use the HFT feature when I want a thick lead. When is fishman going to start supporting us! LOL
  4. I never looked for a Fishman forum.
  5. Hey Dug/Doug (LOL) - I have a guitar with the same bridge and neck Fishman's on the Ibanez you're looking at. I love that combo, but of course tone/sound is soooo subjective. The thing about the other stuff you're talking about in "A" is that it depends on many things and the pups. I do everything digitally, and "noise" is never an issue with any pups. I have those pups in an ESP 7 string baritone and they sound great doing really heavy distorted stuff and clean. Using the Helix, anything is easily doable. If you want an audio demo, I'll make one for you. On B, that's a tough one. I'm someone who never uses the tone control on a guitar, while you use it all the time. My Helix presets are set for amp and speaker settings, along with effects, etc. I use diff cabs (I have a zillion IRs but figured out that Helix cabs as as good and better in many ways - my opinion) and cab settings to really affect tone and will throw in EQ if I really need to adjust highs. That guitar should have a money back guarantee (at least most places have that) so if you really miss the tone knob, you can pay shipping and send it back. I checked out the guitar and I like it! And not having a tone knob is just a feature - I've seen other guitars like that. Unfortunately, there probably isn't room to add one in the cavity if you wanted to, but who knows. I build guitars and for me, doing the electronics is easy if you take the time to learn how to solder guitar electronics and go slowly.
  6. I've been playing a very long time and a few years ago I put Fishman's in my First Warmoth build because of the versatility. I love the tone and multiple voices of Fishmans and have them in many guitars. In fact, I bought 2 ESPs last year that came with Fishmans. I use a Helix Rack and Native and never had a hum problem so that wasn't why I tried them. If you want to talk Fishmans, let me know!
  7. Hey Bryan - I used the latest version of Studio One 4 and Native on all my guitar and bass tracks, and even on other instruments, like keys. I use a Helix Rack when I record to hear the sound I want while I play and I only record the DI in Studio One. My Rack and Native have the same presets and when I add the preset to the recorded DI track, after adjusting the input in Native, they sound identical. Always. If you don't get this solved quickly, if you want to talk on the phone and figure this out, I'll try and help. Just PM me. Doug
  8. I just installed 1.93 and tested the issue a few diff ways and it's fixed for me. Thanks a lot!
  9. I just saw this after replying to a different thread on the same topic. Any luck resolving this? I opened a ticket on this with L6 and am waiting to hear back. For me, Studio One 4 closes without any message when I copy a preset from my desktop or from another preset in Native to a new location in Native. The only thing that “fixes” this is to reduce the number on instances of Native in Studio One. I typically render my tracks fairly quickly since I have a lot of tracks per song and use Native on almost all tracks and it uses up the CPU quickly, so that’s my work around. But there’s obviously a problem and I’m hoping for a fix! Thanks!

  11. I do a lot of heavy/metal guitar recording with 6 and 7 string guitars. In JS’s video, the guitar that comes in around 1:00 is double tracked and panned R and L. So yes, you need to record the same part twice and pan it R and L. JS is a precise player and great at recording so his work is tight. You can’t record a track once and copy that and pan R and L. Well, to be more accurate, you can but it won’t give you the sound you hope for. That would be too easy! Doug.
  12. Well, Mr. BSD512 - I don't have this problem (I run Win 10, as if you didn't know). Every time I open HX Edit, it sits beautifully in the middle of one of my 2 32" screens!
  13. That sucks that you still don't have this working 100%. I also use Win 10 and I also have the rack. We have something the floor users don't have - Guitar through. I have that setup such that everything I record is dry while I hear whatever preset I'm using, like you. I do this with the studio 192 as my interface, but the result's the same. It's great to never think about this when recording and to always have the the raw track for future manipulation. Good luck getting this all sorted out!
  14. I use S1-4 and Native (and Studio 192). Back when I had S1-3 and first got Native, there was a bug like you described. I talked to both L6 and Presonus and one of them (sorry I don't remember which) understood the cause and they fixed it in an update. When I upgraded to S1-4, I still did not have the problem. There are a lot of factors in all this and we probably aren't doing things exactly the same way, but I record all the time and use low latency Z, of course, and I have zero issues with recording and latency. But the issue I do have, along with many others, is that Native is hugely resource intensive with S1 and it doesn't take me long before I need to render tracks or run out of processing power.
  15. Silverhead's experience is my experience, except, as I said above, if you copy a block that is "in the bypassed state" into a preset (from another preset), the default for it is off, eliminating the need to turn it off in every SS except for the SS the block is used in.
