  1. Hey guys. I was inspired by a fresh set of strings and came up with this bass tone in Helix Rack. Hope it can help someone!
  2. Hello! I recently bought Helix LT. I've been extremely disappointed in it. I can't get a decent metal tone out of it. Like EVH type of stuff. Or Metallica, Megadeth etc. I even bought some IR:s from OwnHammer. Bought EVH cab, some Engl cabs etc. Doesn't make much of a different. Sounds like absolute garbage. Been trying out Engl model with EVH IR and different high gain heads/amps like 5150 and Soldano. They all suck pretty badly. Also tried to put Tubescreamer in front of the amp. In "real life" I play Engl amps. Have Savage head and Screamer combo. I put the guitar cable in and that's it, the sound is perfect, no tweaking needed whatsoever. Been playing guitar nearly 30 years and I teach guitar for living, so I'm no beginner with this stuff. Any suggestions ...?
  3. My band is releasing a new 4-track EP on September 4th and we recently posted a track to SoundCloud. All guitars were done through the HD500X via USB into Reaper. I didn't mix it, so I can't verify, but the mix engineer told me post processing was a high pass below 100Hz and some light room reverb. The Ancient Art of Auto-Erotic Asphyxiation ft.

  4. Hi all. I have the boss gt-100 and i am unhappy with the metal tone it has, others are as well from the digging I've done, wish I did before I purchased it doh!!! Just need to know will the line 6 pod hd500x give me the tone I'm looking for. Thanks
  5. I have finally succeeded in making my perfect tone!... It's ALIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!! It's ALIIIIVE MUhahaUAHAhAhah! *cough* anyways.... I'd like to thank those of you that helped me with all the questions I posted up here trying to figure this frustrating yet wonderful 500x, I really do appreciate it. So this is what I ended up with, a very heavy, brutal sounding rhythm with just right the right amount of chunk that is designed for being played out live... and loud. I just uploaded this puppy to Custom Tone under the same name as this thread but since custom tone sucks, I will tell you all the info that it doesn't in case someone wants to replicate this thing. **Guitar** - Active EMG 81/85 - Set on bridge pickup **Amp** - Transparent Live power Amp (not a standard guitar amp head. If you want to try it with a normal amp head, you should probably turn all your knobs to noon so you don't color the tone too much) - 4x12 Celestions **POD** - Output = Stack Pwr Amp - Master Knob = 100% - Guitar In = Normal - XLR = Ground - 1/4" out = Line - Input 1 = Guitar (no way!) - Input 2 = Variax - Guitar In-Z = Auto - Input Setup = Preset **Tone** http://line6.com/customtone/browse/podhd500x/28/ So just a few quick notes on this... 1) It is designed to play loud. With my power amp at about 60% I almost overpower my drummer. I made it this way though because I did not want any distortion originating from my amp head. This is also why the Path B for the Mixer is up a few db 2) To those of who are new to PODs, you're going to look at the signal chain and see the amp in Path B but nothing in Path A, so why did I split the chain at all? Am I retarded? Well yeah, but that's besides the point. I read on a post in here a bit ago that, for some reason, if you set the amp chain up like this you will get more distortion out of your tone, well he was certainly right. So that's it. I wish I could make a recording of it but seeing as it would sound completely different running into a pc, you'll just have to check it out to see what it sounds like. Unless someone can tell me how to route my mic input only to the pc and the guitar input only to my cab I think I've covered all the possible variables that could cause you to get a different sound then I intended.
