Howdy all, _Apologies moderators if this is in the wrong forum.. figured it might get a few more hits if itâ€™s in the main forum_.. Having been part of the Fractal Forum (however no longer because Iâ€™m a loud and proud HELIX user J), and Kemper Forum, and now the Line 6 Helix forum, Iâ€™ve noticed that in particular here in the Helix forum, thereâ€™s a huge amount of FRFR discussions, but thereâ€™s minimal discussions about players that donâ€™t necessarily use FRFR. This could quite easily be because the bigger majority of players in this Line 6 forum ARE mainly FRFR users/players. This isnâ€™t an anti-FRFR topic or discussion, itâ€™s more about expanding on this forum and perhaps growing the capabilities of the Helix and sharing wins/strategies/tones etc etc. On the Fractal and Kemper forums, there are many discussions about FRFR, but thereâ€™s also a lot of discussions and banter about power amps + cabs + Kemper or Axe FX, _not just FRFR_. Is it worth having a forum or chat room for the players that mainly use their Helix rig in a non-FRFR situation? Itâ€™s all well and good to download and trade patches with one another that are FRFR; however from what I can ascertain on this forum, at least 90% of all things discussed is FRFR based, with not a lot of input on power amp + cab + Helix and so forth. Again, having owned and played all 3 modellers, I personally keep resorting back to a valve power amp + cab + Helix because that not only works for me, but the band that I play in as well. FRFR is the perfect bedroom solution (which a majority of us forumâ€™ites are, presumably), however, I just think itâ€™d be good to have a place to chat, trade ideas etc that are not always FRFR based.. Food for thought I guess..
Hey guys, I know I know, lots of players are really digging FRFR/cabs sims etc, but for my purposes, I'm really digging using amp sims IN CONJUNCTION with my VHT 2/50/2 power amp. Just curious to know if there's other players out there, as the title suggests, that use their Helix with a valve (or even solid state) power amp, AND IF SO, are you using it in a band? Last question, as far as hi-gain tones are concerned, what amp sims do some of you use for this? Thanks.
