  1. Thanks so much. I understand what you're saying. Here is a screenshot at least to give you an impression. I really find that adding that custom IR, the Tube Mic Pre and the LA compressor at the end makes a positive improvement on any patch. I always use that. As for the amp settings, based on an interview with Don Felder, where he claimed it was a tweed amp fully dimed, I just did that for this patch
  2. THanks, they are custom IRS of a G12H and weber alnico blue mix using a Neumann U67 and a Royer 121 with 10% EQ and a little bit of room recorded with a stereo pair of Neumann KM84s The second one is a mix of the weber alnico blue with a basketweave G12M speaker The last one is from Ownhammer, the free M75 custom IR mix
  3. Thanks!!! I'll do you one better. Here is the custom patch and custom IR I used: For the solos, I enabled a tube screamer, and for the telecaster parts, I added the script mod phaser pedal. For the reggae rhythm, I enabled the Wah pedal in a fixed position and for the supporting electric guitar lines, I added a little bit of chorus.

  4. #coronagoals. I had set myself the goal to master all the parts in the epic final solo of Hotel California in my downtime during this crisis. I found out there are 11 parts!! (6 electric guitars, 2 acoustic guitars, 1 bass part, the organ part and of course programming drums). Well, it took a little longer than expected. I recorded all electric guitars and the bass using line 6 helix into an Apollo X8. I recorded the acoustic guitars with a stereo set of Neumann KM184s, finally I recorded the organ with a Roland RD-2000 and used the Luna Shape instrument to get the right tone, and I mixed everything in the new Universal Audio Luna DAW. I used a custom patch based on the tweed amp with a custom IR for all the electric guitars and I use the standard Cali 1 bass preset for the bass guitar.

  5. All links are fixed and added links to more of my tones!
  6. I'm sorry. It's been so long I don't remember. Let me make a screen shot of my slots later
  7. Thank you for the feedback. Can you tell me why you preferred delay over a plate reverb which is more of a classic choice for vocals?
  8. I am still so much in love with my helix! For my solo gigs, I have now gotten a great telefunken M80 dynamic mic, and very good acoustic pick up for my acoustic guitar. Now I have access to an acoustic, my variax electric and microphone, all plugged in at the same time in the three inputs, so I can switch set ups with a the single foot switch between songs. I was never able to do this with my Axe FX II I am playing with different vocal chain effects, and I am looking for any and all suggestions. On the Helix, I am using the studio tube preamp, two LA2A (la studio comp) compressors in series (one set to limit, the next to compression), EQ, plate reverb and a optional chorus in the vocal path. Does anyone have other suggestions and setting advice? Especially on the serial compression that is often used.
  9. For the fender clean tones, you can find the proper IRs attached to the first post, and locations 35, 36, and 33. For the other presets, you really need to experiment using the beautiful Helix foot editing while you keep playing. For the High gain presets, I suggest using the G12M/SM57 IRs in the folder. For the other tones, I suggest experimenting with the other IRs, which are all variations on the same theme of either a Weber alnico with a G12M or G12H with a G 12M using different microphones and different EQ.
  10. Could you guys try these links? Here are all my presets. Mostly from a few months ago: https://www.dropbox....sYSmU4-WXa?dl=0 Here are all my (custom) IRs to try. Many subtle variations to dial in a tone: https://www.dropbox....-ByPGdFDfa?dl=0 Try the SRV and Fender Twin tones for the Mayer cleans

  12. In your downloads, it should be there. Then just remove the TXT extension and keep the hlx extension
  13. Yes, there is this weird thing with some computers that they add the TXT extension. Just remove that extension and you're fine.
  14. Download links still work fine. Just used them and sent the files I got to your email address
  15. Thanks man. I don't get the exact tone without this many blocks, but close. Try to experiment.
  16. By the way, for people wondering what the return one and two are for, this is something I really highly recommended. I bought a Bluetooth receiver and plugged it into the return 1 and 2, so now I can play backing tracks or use the amazing slowdowner to write out fast solos, or just learn new songs for the band And if you want a little more hair on your clean tone, just reset the power amp settings to their default on both amps The way it sounds now through my atomic clr, it's very close to my two rock clean channel
  17. Wow, Jim, you honour me greatly by taking the time for your analysis. After reading your blog, you just about nailed my thoughts. You almost nailed all the IR recipes as well. Here are some more thoughts behind the tone: -There is also a mid boost, which simulates the mid-cap bypasses you see on such amps. Can be handy for cutting through a dense mix. -The 35 impulse response adds some room sound and indeed is a little brighter on the darker amp -The LA2As just add a little something even when they're not compressing, and they do take the edge off. Same goes for the tube preamp. Basically, I do what I would to in the studio: get some great speakers, great mics, a good preamp and a good compressor to capture the sound of the chain before it. I also really like the Emphasis control on the LA2A to tweak response. (same goes for the power amp characteristics on both amps to tweak feel and response.) -The double amp setup gives a lot of options. For instance, the treble on the Twin is a bit too much for me, so I like to tone that down and bring in the thicker, sweeter treble on the DeLuxe. Vice Versa for the Presence. For different applications these two amps can also be used to their strengths together. -I really feel you need very good IRs to get the best out of the Helix
  18. You're welcome. I really want to hear what you think, compared to the factory presets
  19. I am still really happy with my Helix after two months! After a LOT of playing and testing, this is my ultimate Fender Clean. Very balanced and clear. Even one of my critical friends, a session player who didn't like my axe-fx 2, was very impressed with my setup. I use a Fender Strat with Don Mare Super Sport pickups into the Helix, which is amplified by the best FRFR i've ever owned, the very flat and transparent Atomic CLR Wedge. INSTRUCTIONS: -Download the patch and the two custom IRs. (right-click and save as on the links) -Upload the IRs to slots 33 and 35 (check the names). -Upload the preset file. -Play!! -Let me know what you think! PS: It's quite a bit louder than the factory presets, so adjust your volume accordingly Tone: https://www.dropbox.com/s/21fnac3r5xa61hf/John%20Mayer.hlx?dl=0 IRs: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7n9bp9poyfgihnc/CustomIRJoost33.wav?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ns96xg8nkgxtm27/CustomIRJoost35.wav?dl=0 For fun, try these links: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/36xnp4wy9idzwmm/AAAO7I2pXLvgBt2sYSmU4-WXa?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4ux91lvwin6yaj2/AAA71Y4yLDqtj7L-ByPGdFDfa?dl=0 CustomIRJoost33.wav CustomIRJoost35.wav
  20. I agree, and I did both things from the start. Everything was set to line level, and I was plugging into the L6 link, so since I was using the digital out on the helix, it made no sense to plug it into the mixer.
  21. It is a major upgrade! More detailed, thicker high end, no more fatiguing highs, a much greater sweet spot, and no fan which is nice when you're playing at home.
  22. Well, I checked everything in this thread, and the only thing that solved it was lowering the channel or preset levels on some presets. It turns out the clipping levels on the L6 link are different from the XLR which is different from the headphone out (which was still clipping when my main outputs no longer did)
