Hi guys since yesterday i am an owner of the Helix after at least a year of studiying the system and its potential. I've seen alot of videos and listen to its sound so many times. I know that the Helix is not the best sounding system out there but got me with its overall package. Yesterday I unboxed the system and pluged it right into my home cinema sound system and into my PC using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 interface. But at the moment im a bit disapointed with the sound i get. It seem to sound extremly thin. Not full range or anything just pretty thin although the base and all seem to be outputed. I had the hope that the Helix might get me a valve amp like sound to more full and mid heavy sounding. The Helix out of the box seem to sound pretty high freq. heavy and pretty digital sounding. That is what i heard in a lot of reviews too. But i heard so many guys playing on the Helix and it sounded pretty good and all. Did you guys had to do alot of tweaking and stuff to get this thing to sound actually good ? I know i have to go with IRs to get the most out of the system and hope i get my hands on IRs in the next few days. But maybe you have some usefull tips on setting this bad boy up to sound not too digital. The point that bugs me the most is that almost every Amp und distortion Pedal seem to sound the same with this high gain characteristic. Any advise on tuning the system ? I know from my start with my last multi-effects system that i need some time to get used to the Helix.
It is a very easy thing to do that really sets your tone ready for mix: After the amp, add a mid focus EQ and put HP FREQ:20% HP Q:0% LP FREQ:92% GAIN 0-14% (depends on the amp) It will give you a much better tone for all amps except: DOOM, ACOUSTIC, JCM 800(Old). Try it, and let me know what you think.
