  1. on topic i think, I just bought a "Gator Cases G-MULTIFX-2411 24-inch x 11-inch Effects Pedal Bag" from amazon for like $70 canadian, less in the USA no doubt. it fits my LT nearly perfectly. about 2 inches on the side. cheap, nice quality. totaly think it was the best deal for a helix lt (or helix regular I think) bag.
  2. Maybe, since what you uploaded sounds like it has 2 or 3 effects that cause delays and echos... could you please save a version of the patch without the octave fuzz, hall verb, and whatever else was diagnosed as a culprit by the helpful people in this thread, and upload it again? If, in fact, you can still hear the effect with the patch like that. cuz you said it happens without that stuff in there... so take the stuff out and try again. Cuz that's quite a bit of help you got already, which is free from a very cool user. Maybe that awesome person will help one last time if you send the dryest patch you got that still, to your ears, has some kind of echo going on. but from my experience (limited LoL), i think maybe it is from something else outside of your patch. like maybe you have something routed wrong? like i had mine connected to my computer with usb, and sound was coming out in real time and also like with a little echo, and it turns out it was the way i had the settings on the pc wiht driver delay or something.
  3. Actually besides the wah pedal problem, this patch "STRAT+HOLD DBK" is my number one fav now. not the one from youtube earlier in thread. The one from donkelly. You are wrong, donkelly, it works great, maybe best, if you enable the effect, then without playing anything, turn on record mode, hit your chord, let it sing for a couple seconds, and then turn off record. It's like completely smooth then just like the EHX FREEZE! I used a friends freeze pedal and showed him this patch and he says its a perfect copy. I am gunna try to fix the wah thing myself cuz i guess the guy who made this patch is busy. its gota be that the built in expresion pedal somehow is set to trigger the record mode or hwatever by accident.
  4. Different effect completely. Check youtube examples of the EHX Freeze
  5. did not know bout helixhelp. bookmarked and will start reading. noob here. thanks for the effort to help people like me!
  6. i'm gunna try and figure how to make volume pedal do delay level for swells editing thispost... k making pedals do what i want is beyond me still. its my first try. but it is real great how it is anyhow editing again... it isnt me. the patch has the wah pedal messing up the delay record path thing. donkelley can you fix the wah pedal please? try using wah when playin over top of freeze thing, it records to the freeze.
  7. wow man I love it - downloaded and it works! but both the amps sound awful on my guitar so i changed them. then it was like magic.. thank you
  8. Cool. He failed to actually do the swell and sustain with decent level - he should have retried it to show what he was trying to do. I tried that patch and it actually was pretty simple to do even with built in controller setting the feedback....
  9. Ah. THIS explains why I sound like a wounded moose when I practice! So, all I need is a great band and amazing recording engineer and mastering engineer, and I'll sound as good as my favorite tracks? LoLz kidding, kidding.
  10. I thought this update was just something you get free for the hardware you already own? a bigger screen could be the bestest download ever!
  11. I saw a very simple difference in the points he was contributing as guesswork in 2nd paragraph to the facts about how it works in the last paragraph. Seemed really clear and interesting to me.
  12. I searched and found a thread that has a suggestion you could try! I want to try it myself, actually...
  13. yea, exactly. I am just not understanding it i guess. So... you change the amp settings. In the amp model. why do they say to "add a eq with parametric curve" blah blah in the cab or after/before the cab? The amp model should do that, if you set the tone controls like they suggested. i am coming at this new to the helix, but this seems kinda wrong, right? Hahaha, if you know what i mean. that company should say to set your amp model like they suggested. i guess maybe they are saying that you do not have to use a tube amp model, instead you can mimick it with the eq thing? but the guy in this thread who was asking about the tone of the IR product is, presumably, using it with amp models... and thinking it should sound like a cab with his amp models and not need a eq stage to mimick the amp model with the right tone control settings. i must be missing something. keep in mind this is totally new to me. please, thanks, sorry for not understanding?
  14. But if someone does that with the tube amp that is modeled in the helix, won't it have that slight mid scoop already? I'm not the thread guy but I do not understand why we should have to eq to simulate a tube amp if we are already simulating a tube amp. I guess though that maybe the OP could try setting the presence and depth to 0 to get that particular tube amp scoop tone and see if he likes it. Strange suggestion from the ownhamer company I think though, right? I hope the helix already does this stuff already if it is modeling the tube power amp. sorta strange too - they said the tube power amp presence and depth - do tube power amps have presence and depth controls? I thought only preamps have controls like that. I totally am learning it all myself here right now. I just do not understand why they would suggest that. seems wrong somehow LoL
  15. At first when I read qwerty42's reply, which shows only a bit of the content in the paste, it seemed not relevant (inputs). But I clicked it, and found what he was talking about: " Helix Floor/Rack/LT Inputs Guitar in: Auto impedance unbalanced TS, the impedance will be determined by the first block in the signal chain. (This is a setting that can be adjusted in Global Settings) Aux In: 10k ohm unbalanced TS Returns: 1Meg unbalanced TS (instrument mode)/10K unbalanced TS (line mode) Outputs L and R Main Out: Impedance-balanced TRS Sends: Impedance-balanced TRS Dry (Helix Rack only): Impedance-balanced TRS " So which is it? LoL. The manual says TS and the above quote says TRS for same output I think. I wanna know too cuz im using a power pa speaker that has trs inputs but can use ts inputs and right now at home I am using just a guitar cord for helix out to pa input. maybe i too should be using trs? once i get to real playing with my group again post-covid I really wanna be prepared with correct setup.
