  1. R5 Acoustic Sim.hlx Helix preset posted to the Dropbox location above.


    It is adjusted for single coil neck pickup and SC IR.


    Here is a quick and cheesy acoustic clip of the single coil IR and preset.



    Nice work!  I tried the HB IR and it sounded great with my PRS Custom 24 through my QSC K10 Speaker.  I'm anxious to try it in rehearsal but that will have to wait since I still can't carry my gear there.

  2. The stock zebra humbuckers. It's a PRS Singlecut Trem. I adjusted with the tone knob all the way up. So you back yours off if it is too bright.


    I put these in a preset with Studio Preamp, 10 band eq, LA Compressor. The Cali Bass amp with no cab works well for an acoustic amp too.

    Would you mind sharing your settings on the other blocks (10 band eq, compressor, etc.) (or put it on Customtone) I am using a Custom 24 with coil taps and hope to give it a try soon.



  3. Thanks for that info!  I never thought of that.  So to be clear, the most flexible way to do a backup so you can take advantage of any new presets is to:


    1.) Note any global settings info you my need to re-enter

    2.) Back up the IRs noting their location slot

    3.) Backup each setlist you created  (select each one and hit export setlist)


    This would at least save the step of backing up presets since presets are included in  setlist backup correct?

  4. Thx.  I did start numbering my IRs.  I think I will also start deleting the ones I don't use :-)  For this last update I exported setlists, presets, IRs and setlists just in case but I want to  move away from that if the 1 bundle and IR backup will work

  5. Just want to clarify, To do a complete backup of all user content on the Helix, do I just need to do a bundle export and an IR export?  In other words, does the bundle include all user content except for IRs?  (setlists and presets for example)

  6. Mine arrived and it is very nicely built.  My only concern is it is a very tight fit to get the zipper to close.  You can't get the top and bottom pieces to lay together without actually zipping it up which seems to put quite a bit of strain on the zipper.  Does anyone else find the case fits this tight?

  7. I'm just running into some headphones. They're a great pair of headphones for this though. I mean the tone the guy has is great. I can't get close to that and the headphones can't make that much a difference I wouldn't think. I'm also using a stock 2003 Gibson SG Standard


    Did you try downloading some patches from L6?  Some of those are pretty nice.  For me, I had to start with simple amp and cab combinations and build from there.  I also downloaded some aftermarket IRs

  8. djy thanks I rented 2 k10's and they did sound awesome. Do you think a pair of K8's would be better suited for a smaller room than K10's?


    I didn't audition the K8s so it is hard to say.  I will say I have to turn the bass boost off as well as run a low cut filter when I play in a band situation but I love the bass I get in my 12x13 practice room with the bass boost on and the filter turned off.   Especially when I use the Redwirez Marshall 4x12 IR.  I am planning on getting another K10 to leave at our rehearsal space and perhaps use them both when I really want the rig to sound big  :)

  9. I use a QSC K10 myself.  I have a set of the Behringer studio monitors but I really like the sound of the K10 better.  Especially when I use the flat switch.  It sounds great at low volume if I turn on the Bass boost switch and then my patches sound similar to what they will sound like when I am playing with my band.  I do find it easy to play to loud for the family though!

  10. Thanks for posting the picture.


    So I had the shop wire in 11k (a 10 and a 1 soldered in series) resistance on the tip of the TRS cable used for the channel switching.  I get the same thing on the Mesa V:25, switches the EQ on/off very well and will NOT change channel.  The channel goes to Channel 2 when the cable is plugged into the system.


    The Mini Rectifier does the same thing it did before.  It Switches the amp channel but like a momentary switch it switches channel then goes back.  Will not stay on the channel.


    I did have our shop guys test the cable with the resistors it is actually loading it at 11.1k.


    Still running the 4CM method when needed but I bring the amp switcher. 


    Thanks for trying this and posting your results.  I wonder if it is worth hoking up a potentiometer to be able to quickly try different values?  Is there a way to damage the Helix or amp with a bad resistance value?

  11. There are so many ways you can do this... I use an EXP (you can also use a footswitch) to change all the parameters of the amp from clean (heel down) to dirty (toe down) and it works great, and it sounds "cohesive" with the same amp and cab.


    I tried to implement this but I seem to only get path 2 when the heel is down and nothing when the toe is down.  






  12. I got a 10k and a 1k in the shop.  Going to patch into my TRS cable to see how it switches.  Nothing lost if it does not work.  I just didn't see the Knowledge Base article, thought they pulled it because it did not work?


    Thanks for trying this.  I look forward to seeing if it switches your mini rectifier.  If it does, I guess I will be cannibalizing a speaker cable!
