    Helix Command Center. Did you know it can do this?

    I hadn’t realised that about the Stomp. Yep midi implementation would be a must.
  2. I don’t imagine this will be news to seasoned users, however newer users might not realise how powerful command center can be. Either way it’s still very cool that Helix can do this.
  3. These are a brand new product from USACG and I think they will prove immensely popular with anyone who has the itch to build their own design but can't do the routing and drilling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVtpoDQR2uU

    Levels. Sitting around -12db max

    This is the answer I was hoping to get, as having headroom is always preferable to wanting it. I shall leave it like I have it.

    Levels. Sitting around -12db max

    I'm sure many of you have seen the "all the drives suck" thread over at TGP (in fact many of you whom I see here have participated in the thread), and as always with these threads it has thrown up a bazillion ideas and tips, too many to digest almost. One of the things I saw mentioned a few times seems pertinent to this conversation. A few different users said that you should run the big black physical master volume knob that sits on top of the unit (as distinct from other volume levels in the software) at max (fully clockwise) or as near as damn it. Others said that this only matters if you are going into the front of an amp, as max is unity level for the amp input. So my setup is Helix floor XLR outputs at line level running into my Adam A7 monitors. Each monitor speaker has a volume control and I have each set at -10db. I have the volume on the top of the Helix at 12 o'clock, and it is loud. As loud as I really want it to be for comfort (reading ~80db on my loudness meter in the room). So the question is, will I get a better sound by running the Helix volume knob more open and turning down the volumes on each monitor? Cheers.

    Why there is almost no distortion from the amps

    Excellent advice on using the loop to take the input out of the equation. FWIW I only use low to medium output pickups, like the input pad ON, and still have buckets of breakup and all out dirt. I’m only new at Helix so I don’t have great advice. Hope you can get it sorted.

    Revv Generator 120 in 2.8

    I have to admit that I wasn’t super excited when I saw this on the list for 2.8, as I thought it was just a super gainy metal monster that I would have no use for. Watching Shawn Tubbs demo it has blown me away, and totally got me excited for this. Super smooth lead tones.

    Revv Generator 120 in 2.8

    Yes I did know that. Still excited though. That channel sounded awesome.
  9. In this tutorial I demonstrate how to make a thumbnail for YouTube channels using the fabulous free software Gimp, which functionally is very similar to Photoshop, with very comparable capabilities.

    Stacked Amps

    I was intrigued by this, so I did it today with a tele going into a bassman patch I had done up. Put the bassman preamp in front of the full bassman amp, then into the 4x10 cab. Boom. What a tone. Thanks for the great tip.

    Does it matter where I place the amp in signal path?

    Funniest remark from the never ending thread.

    Just don’t put it in a warm bath and feed it donuts. That’s dangerous.

    Delaune vs Fremen vs MBritt patches - a review

    The Pink Floyd patches? Are they only available in the Big Pack or Mega Pack, or is there a way to get just the Floyd presets? I couldn’t see that on the Fremen website. And it isn’t about the cost of the big or mega pack, it’s just that I wouldn’t use most of the patches in those packs, but the Floyd stuff? Hell yes.

    Having nothing better to complain about ...

    You can also double-click an app’s title bar to maximise the window (as long as the option to do so is set to “zoom” in Dock preferences).

    How good is the Elephant Man model?

    Apologies for the click bait title, I promise you that this is not click bait. Let me in good faith say up front that it is incredibly good, and therefore nobody ever needs to click the video. If you’re still here.... I have owned my Deluxe memory man since 2004, and I know it very well. I haven’t seen a comparison anywhere before so I decided to do one myself. If you want to hear just how accurate the model is to the real deal have a listen. I think anyone would be impressed. https://youtu.be/_ZLPTCT8zDs

    Helix LT sucks. Badly.

    This thread makes me sad. A few weeks back I uploaded a video with my first ever patch (an acoustic guitar patch) and I asked for feedback and advice, and I really wanted it, because I want to get better with the Helix. I got a few replies, and I thank those users that responded with advice. This guy (who doesn’t want your help) is literally getting people to queue up, give their best advice only to get kicked. Several members have come back for multiple kickings even as members like me have pointed out the folly of it. Einstein had a quote related to this. Masochism is unbecoming of this forum.

    I use them both now for that Andy Summers thing

    How good is the Elephant Man model?

    It has always been my understanding (correct or incorrect as it may be) that the grainy distortion comes from the preamp in the pedal which you can push the amp a bit with. Also, I made the ‘Differences are minor’ comment to Verne Bunsen above, not in my video and his question was about FX loops vs front of amp.

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but did you really listen to the clip? Nothing muffled there IMO, and has that lovely glassy quality (you say chime). How more transparent a comparison do you think I could have done?

    If it is supposed to be Florian, he didn’t get it quite right either, as that would have to be Nairolf.

    He always has been trolling. Honestly, he does not deserve your apologies or sympathy.

    How good is the Elephant Man model?

    The differences are minor and really not an issue. For me a modeller is all about how it performs sonically. The ‘feel’ is very much a non issue for me. I don’t go in expecting them to have the same feel, but when a model sounds as good as this one does, I am damn impressed. I have always had real amps with fx loops, so I have very rarely put the DMM in front of an amp. The main difference running it in front is that you can use the preamp in the pedal to give the amp a bit more juice, but I prefer to do this with other pedals.

    Nice article on the DMM. https://www.ehx.com/assets/reviews/Guitar-Player-March-2018-Classic-Gear-Deluxe-Memory-Man.pdf

    What FRFR do you have?

    How good is the Elephant Man model?

    Thank you. I was very impressed. It also means that I can run dual memory man setups without the extra DSP load.
