Last night my band had the privilege of playing at Bondi Beach in Sydney at the Icebergs for a function. The stage literally perched over the open ocean, brilliant. The brilliance of the setting was overshadowed by a much more brilliant phenomenon however. The Helix. The sounds I was getting out of my 35 patches (one per song) were by far and away the best sounds I've ever got out of any amp or modeller I've owned. I bought Glenn D's boutique amp set about 3 weeks ago and have been tweaking them to taste. The main tweaks were hi and low cuts on the IR blocks, some additional volume on a couple of amps and increasing the lead boost. Thats about all I did to them. I then added FX and snapshots to suit each song. I also use a couple of Fremen and Scott patches as well. The result was amazing. I'm not a full time pro so I don't have the same level of know-how on setting up my rig that many others on this forum possess, however I'm learning. While I continue to build my own patches, in the meantime I will continue to use these boutiques from GD et al for live performances. The key things I noticed about the set up were the clarity of notes and chords, particularly with distortion. The lead tones seemed to poke out of the mix in a 3D kinda way, and the way these patches respond to playing dynamics seemed tube-like. The band's a five-piece rock band with a big sound. The Helix was able to deliver a range of tones maintaining integrity without pushing the volume envelope...hail the Helix! I'll record the next live session and provide some samples....
