  1. I really hope this happens. Even the way it is now, the only IRs I use are for my acoustic sounds.
  2. I have to respectfully refute this as I've actually had really good success putting an OD after the amp and before the Cab. No problems with digital clipping at all, in fact, I saw a big drop in output but nothing that a gain block couldn't fix. The preset with this configuration is my favorite "clean" patch - not pristine clean obviously as lately, I've decided that I just don't like things too clean. One of the snapshots in this preset is also as close as I've been able to get to the solo tone on Steely Dan's "Josie". My take on it is a tad bit grittier though.Anyway, when it comes to developing sounds on the Helix, I think one of its greatest strengths is that it encourages me to ask, "What if I tried...?"
  3. Yeah, so go to Ideascale and please upvote it!
  4. Well, if you think about it, that’s the way a signal chain would be in a recording studio. That being said, in a live playing situation, having the cab at the end is exactly how the signal chain would be.
  5. This makes sense to me, actually, since the Helix is modeling actual circuits.
  6. I really like Mike Hermans’ demo of the Freqout. Heck, I just like his playing and enjoy all of his demos. Makes it kinda hard for me to decide as to whether or not I’ll actually like the pedal. 😆 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=s4O3rJZPrNk
  7. Thanks. Gonna have to try that. It sure doesn’t sound like it. Hmmm
  8. I should have clarified. Yes, you are correct but the Double Take sounds really odd in mono and we really could use a mono version of the Trinity. But also, the Helix really should have an option to sum the outputs to mono. That way, you could run the thing in either mode and not have to replace the stereo effects with mono ones or vice-versa. The left XLR output says "mono" but it sounds like just the left channel of a stereo signal to me. Not sure if it does in fact auto-detect that there's only one connector attached to the XLR connectors.
  9. Woohoo! What about the other stereo effects - the chorus and doubler in particular?
  10. My question is, does it still sound good in mono? I hardly ever run in stereo.
  11. Check out my proposal. Of equal importance is to have this as an option so that you don't have to use it if you don't need or like it.
  12. I don’t think this is currently possible and I would like to be able to do this as well some months ago I posted this idea - https://line6.ideascale.com/a/ideas/search?templateId=0&query=Remember+last+Snapshot+

    I love this place!
  14. I think that for some, it takes a little while to get that hang of and determine if the Helix is going to do it for them. As much as most of us here would likely endorse the Helix wholeheartedly, ultimately it will be up to you and your needs. My recommendation is to hang on to your old rig, tolerate the mess for a while until you’re sure you’re about to make the right decision.

    Helix vs Mimiq

    I think it’s only practical if you run the Helix in stereo.
  17. Anyone tried the electric guitar body IRs?
  18. hideout

    Well, I did it.

    Yeah, but then you have two things to pack around instead of just one. Just a personal preference. I do wish there was an editor for the iPad
  19. hideout

    Well, I did it.

    The editor is fine for editing at home but in my experience, every new or modified preset will need tweaking at the gig. I don't bring a computer to the gig for editing so it's the "Stoop, Twiddle and Pluck" dance for a little while.
  20. Yup. Just like how you can save user presets for audio plugins on your computer.
