    Delaune vs Fremen vs MBritt patches - a review

    I feel the same. There is something for everybody in all three sets. Outside of volume adjustment, not much to do.

    Helix No-Boot w/ ":-28" Problem

    I have had this happen on occasion. I have found that using the official power cord (or a very high quality power cord) that came with the Helix solves the issue. Every time it happened I somehow was powering the unit with a power cable from another manufacturer (specifically Alto).

    Derailed Ingrid preamp digital fizz

    I Have a train wreck clone head. Nature of the beast. The line 6 model is exactly like the amp, warts and all.

    Anyone run into this issue-ive used several laptops over the years, all deauthorized aside from one. Cant get native to work on new laptop, reinstalled, tried license manager etc.

    Guitar to Amp to Load Box to Helix?

    It works, but will take some tuning before it makes it out into the wild First iteration will be the guitar to helix-wah-couple drive pedals-trem-univibe-to real amp via send. Amp will be miked--mike back into helix--time based effects--helix out to FOH.

    Guitar to Amp to Load Box to Helix?

    I recently picked up a really loud amplifier, love the sound, distortion, sustain----but I am wondering if anyone has run the helix this way: Guitar into helix which has Boost, fuzz, modulation. Out of helix to loud creamy amplifier. Amplifier speaker out to load box has a line out. Load box line out to Helix and insert the line out before the usual Helix time based effects. Included in the time based effects (somewhere, depends on how it sounds I suppose) a cab or IR. Also the amp has no effects loop.

    No where else to turn to before I return My Helix

    Just listened to that file, wow, really bad. Something is defective with that unit for sure. I would seek another unit immediately.

    No where else to turn to before I return My Helix

    I listened to the file. Awful, never heard anything like that come out of a helix. First thought was an active guitar with a low battery, second thought was cabling, power quality etc. Pickup too hot. Third thought is we are being astroturfed by owners/factory reps from HeadRush, BOSS. One message like the above can lead to hundreds of new sales for other manufacturers.

    Fremen's Helix presets

    I've found the Victoria Vintage Patch to be very 2112ish to my ears, loving that patch and some of the Ingrids!

    Alto 210 vs 212 and Input Type - Helix Fence Sitter

    and if you get the Alto's up off the floor you can reduce the coupling. All depends where you put them, etc. I actually had the Line 6 L2T, QSC12's, and Alto 210's, 212's, Alto 110-(no 1/4" input) Prefer the altos over all others, simple, light, easier (for me) to dial in tones. I actually went cheaper and was happier with the Alto 110's, (although no 1/4 inch remember). I would put the idea out that when you by a 10" its actually a 12" with the way the cabinets are tuned You do get what you pay for but the differences (for me) were negligible, weight was the concern.

    Fremen's Helix presets

    Did a quick run through this morning-outstanding!! perfect volume balance too!! (for me anyway)

    Muddled Distortion and OD

    The more I have read of all of dd's posts it seems a bit of trolling. For myself all I get is compliments, even when I have a rough night of playing. Great sound, really stay true to the song, the tones sound correct for what we play etc., fits in the mix without blasting to be heard etc. Even the wife is happy. I would be more than happy to help anyone if they are willing to help themselves too. So easy to biotch about anything these days. Price you pay when you have very little to keep you occupied Back in the day not much time to play guitar-hunt for food-keep fire going-keep rival out of cave...find and keep mate. Life is wonderful.

    JTV 89 F + Helix LT

    Use an Alto 212 for acoustic. Use the sends or unused output on the helix to feed the Alto.
