  1. I find most IR packs to overwhelming... so many options. by I like the ones in the M Britt Helix patches. Not only are the patches great you get a nice selection of IR's. http://mbritt.com/product/m-britt-helix-preset-pack-1/ M Britt is well respected in the Kemper world.

    IR's - anyone else overwhelmed? (tips?)

    first world problem if ever there was one... I thought I'd take a trip into the rabbit hole of IR's, why... because they are there! :) I bought the Ownhammer Core Tone Bundle after a bit of research and I'm sure it's very good... but I found it so overwhelming, too many files, too much choice that after a couple of evenings I just deleted them off the helix and vowed never to go there again. Until I got the free Allure pack - I have to say I thought it was great - just a few flies to play with and I got some good sounds really quickly. I know this is all the falut of the user (me) and I know that IR's if you know what you are doing are very useful tools - but did anyone else just get too overwhelmed and would just like more simple packs where some says here's one or two - just use them IR for dummies I guess... anyone else find this? Any other very simple packs people recomened? Cheers Mark

    using expression 3 as an on/off switch

    using expression 3 as an on/off switch

    I have an old what that i converted into an expression pedal. Is it possible to use the switch on wah to turn on/off the effect. having the expression going into EXP2 via one cable. and a separate cable going into EXP3 acting as an on/off switch? cheers mark

    where can I download the latest editor for my mac?

    Thanks for that... I was being stupid and for the life of me couldn't find it! Cheers
  8. Spent the last half hour looking and no joy. Updated my Helix to 2.20... but no idea how to update my editor which is 2.10 and can't see the new effects... Love my Helix... hate trying to find software and do updates! :) thanks Mark

    Helix and a Freeze pedal

    Actually got that working last night - but I do need an FX loop on the pedal to do what I really want to do. Cheers for that.

    Helix and a Freeze pedal

    as Mr. Simpson likes to say DOH! Of course that will happen - I really didn't think that through... but now you've said it of course that make sense. there's £4 wasted :) What I'm trying to do is make it so the signal from the 'out' of the freeze can have effects but the guitar sound that you play over the top has no effects added. But I don't think that can be done as the Freeze doesn't have an FX loop like the Superego. I have a Pedal Plus sustain pedal on order that can do that - but they don't ship till June so bought a cheap Freeze to play with while that's coming.

    Can the Helix create a hold / freeze effect?

    It was fun to play around - but in the end I bought a S/H Freeze (then modded it to take an external expression pedal :) ) I'm now going to split the signal so the freeze has a path of it's own to add effects to without effecting the guitar sound using a Y splitter and have one input into the guitar in and one into the AUX (freeze). The helix is just so good when you want to try things.

    If you run your HOG through effects on the Helix do you have it so your guitar sound (that you play over with) is not effeedcted by these effects?

    Helix and a Freeze pedal

    I have a plan. I ordered a Y splitter cable I'm going to spit my signal into the guitar in and the AUX in. I know the sound might not be quite as good through the AUX in but for the drone, freeze sounds it's OK after a quite test. Then have a paths: Guitar in >>> amp >>> effect >>> out Aux in (Freeze) >>> amp >>> effect >>> out

    Helix and a Freeze pedal

    thanks for that, Makes sense, obviously it has no way to mute the input once the pedal is set - not the point of how the pedal was designed. Couldn't get my head around that due to lack of sleep! :)

    Helix and a Freeze pedal

    I have a Freeze pedal and I want to make it so that I can have the sound from the freeze going through an effect (trem for example) but I don't want my guitar to go through the trem as well. Any thoughts on the the best way to do this? Basically I want: Freeze effect chain: Guitar sound > freeze > trem > output Guitar chain: Guitar sound > NO TREM > output so when I play over the freeze / trem output my guitar sound is trem free. Cheers Mark
