    HX Stomp - Summing EQ blocks into an IR?

    I've been loving the HX Stomp for the past month or so, but there is one limiting factor that I can't seem to find a workaround for. What I would like to do is sum several EQ blocks into a single Impulse Response in order to save DSP power (like was done in this video). However, unlike in the full Helix, the USB in/out selection options in HX Edit seem to not be nearly as flexible on the Stomp. This means that when I try to use deconvolution software to make the IR (I'm using the Impulse Response Utility through MainStage), it won't let me because I can only chose USB 5/6 on the input (which are the re-amping slots that bypass the Stomp's effects) and the only output option is the 1/4 line outs on the back of the Helix. Therefore, when I do the audio sweep to make the IR, it doesn't work because the sweep doesn't input through the helix effects and won't come out through USB (unless I'm doing it wrong...). Does anybody have any ideas on how to get around this? Here are some links that have gotten me close to an answer, but I'm out of my league here when it comes to understanding how to get what I'm after... Thanks for your help in advance, this is my first time posting here! -How to use the Stomp as an audio interface -How to make an impulse response on a mac -Converting SDIR files to WAV -Relevant forum discussion

    Effects loop and IR block placement

    Does the IR block go directly after the amp+cab block. I have external drives > input of hx stomp>amp+cab block. Then I split signal to effects loop. Out of send> external verbs and delays> back to stereo return > IR block> stereo Something isn’t sounding right with my drives...almost like in a tin can...i can’t eq my way out of it...I see all these videos of nice tones but I can’t get it...I can’t get a nice bite on my drives it’s flat and smooth..no attack to my notes Any suggestions on why?...something in my signal path?

    Best signal chain and tone

    Where does the IR block go?...right after the amp+cab block.? Also where does the effects loop block go. I run analog drives into the hx stomp. I use the effects loop for externaL modulation. My drives don’t sound to great. I don’t know if my signal chain is messed. I can’t seem to eq my way out of tin can over drives Any help or suggestions would be great

    Links for free Impulse Responses (IR) here

    Please post links for free Impulse Responses (IR) here. Looking for links to freeware, promotional, basically any IR that is legal to share and download including Helix user created IRs that you are willing to share. THANKS!!! Here is one to get things started: http://www.openairlib.net/auralizationdb This is kind of an interesting site with a huge repository and has some extraordinarily different IRs available for download. There are definitely many in the mono 48khz format preferred by the Helix. The stereo ones can be used as well but you will only get the left channel per the documentation in the Helix. I suppose if you know how you could possibly also transform the IRs that are not in the proper format for the Helix. If you find an IR you like just click on the link and then select the "Impulse Response" tab. I have successfully downloaded the IRs from there. Note: Some browsers will automatically try to play .wav files; you will need to make sure you use a browser that doesn't, or change the settings so that it gives you the option to download or play. I have to admit I have yet to use them but it looks like there is some amazing potential here. These are not mic/cab IRs, they are IRs from all kinds of spaces and structures, natural and man-made, taken from locations around the globe, I imagine they could be used in lieu of a reverb or echo for instance, or perhaps even instead of a cab. Thinking some of these might also work well for acoustic guitar as well as electric. They have one from a space that is described as having the longest natural echo of an any man-made structure in the world. http://www.openairlib.net/auralizationdb

    Hx fx- impulse response questions

    Im new to the hx fx and could really use some recommendations and help regarding impulse responses. I run my guitar through a bbe sonic maximizer and then through a vox Ac50 ( with upgaded tubes, and V30’s :) ) I run the hx fx in 4cm. My band rehearses D.I. Into the mixer ( drummer plays a roland TD30, so its really nice) but its still important for me to use the AC50 as the tone is incredible and regardless of the fact we all use “ in ears” live and in rehearsal im using a moderate amount of amp volume on stage and blending it with my D.I. Signal into the P.A./monitors. Thats why i was really excited to use impulse responses. Heres where i can use some help/recommendations and opinions. 1. Ive played around with placing the IR block before and after the Fx loop 1 block. so far I prefer it placed after, but i cant really tell much of a difference. Anyone have any info or experience with this? what is your preference? 2. I downloaded a bunch of IRs . I have some “speaker” ones (the allure pack) and those all seem pretty useable. One of the best results ive had so far is the V30 IR (from allure) I have the mix set to 100 and the volume somewhere around -6.5 -8.0 db I also find it totally necessary to use the low cut feature as the bass frequencies easily start to overdrive. Changing IR,s the confusion/frustration/doubt starts to set in. Heres some examples- Acoustic guitar resonace ir’s i have , including this hollowbody ir i have sound absolutely funky. Maybe they are crappy idk but its led me to believe that IR’s work best emulating something similar to your sound. I mean i run v30s out of my cab. So running a V30 IR after my effects loop block seems to make my D.I. Signal sound alot more like my amp and that is a wonderful result. but trying to make it sound like a jazz box, or a hummingbird acoustic, is experimental and probably wont yield good results. However, i did load a gods cab (its like a 6505 with a mesa cab and a sm7b mic) it needed a ton of low cut. And it really overdrove my signal easily. But at -8.0 db lvl with 100mix and a low cut, when i added a distortion, i got a killer sound. I mean awesome metal tone. some feedback or personal experience on this would be a godsend. 3. So to some it up into some more direct questions. whats with the overdriving? are some of these ir,s supposed to be distorted? where as some are just clean cabinet/mic “simulations” (or moments in time whatever you wanna call it) -8db seems awful low for a level setting should i be looking elsewhere? what kind of mix and level do you guys use? Is 2048 samples always better? Anything pertaining to using impulse responses with hx fx in 4cm especially settings would help alot. If in the end i can properly add an IR to all my presets resulting in my DI sounding more realistic and just having better tone altogether i would be very happy. just dont know if im doing it right.
  6. Hey everyone, I recently got a pod HD500X and after sitting with it for quite some time I was wondering if I can improve tones by loading custom IR's into the unit. I have been searching for information but not sure I have found the answer. Is it possible to load custom IR's (as is the case with the mooer radar for example) or would the use of custom IR's only be possible with a dedicated unit such as the radar or 2 notes torpedo after the pod HD500X (from what I have gathered this seems to be the case but not 100% sure)? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hi all, Sorry for the question as i'm sure its been asked. So apologies. Long time L6 user first time Helix user..rack version, love it. Impulse Responses...my question: If I use an impulse response block, I assume I don't add it to a patch with a Amp & Cab block in use, or a patch which has separate Amp and Cab block...just use an Amp (amp on its own) block and then an impulse response block? Going into studio monitors and will go direct into house PA. Just wanted to get a handle on how to use them in a very simple basic set up ie wha>eq>Amp>IR>delay>reverb...NOT wha>eq>AMP+Cab>IR>delay>reverb. Sorry for thick question, any basic help much appreciated. # Thanks guys/gals.

    Creating DSP on path 2

    I’ve attached a labeled photo of my signal path. For some reason those are all the blocks that I can have on path 2. On path one it seems almost unlimited with what I can have. What can I do to rearrange this path so that I can add more blocks to my path 2?
  9. I followed the instructions in the latest Helix Edit and Helix Owners manuals about loading IRs into the IR Index on the left side of the Helix Edit screen. The Helix Edit and Helix unit are connected while experiencing the following: 1. Tried dragging the files as well as clicking on Import. I get a notice that the IRs are being imported. The names of the IRs appear in the Index, but when I create an IR Block in a preset the name of the IR does not appear in the IR Select parameter field in the bottom right screen. It says Empty, even though my Helix shows the name. I can move up and down with the toggle arrows in Helix Edit and see the IRs change on the Helix, but Helix Edit screen still says Empty. 2. Now the odd thing is that in the IR Index, you can right click on the IR name and get a menu that includes Import, Copy, Clear, etc. But the only item in the menu that is not ghosted is Import. I cannot clear, copy or paste any IRs in the Index. 3. When I close Helix Edit and re-open it all the IRs I loaded are gone. Why aren't they being saved in the Index? There are no menu items in Helix Edit for saving anything other than a preset. As of 7/14/18 my Helix and Helix Edit app versions / firmware are up to date.
  10. I'm looking for some JBL type speaker impulse responses. I'm interested in any type of JBL 110, 120 or 130 series in any cab... d120, d130, d110, k series, e series. AND any JBL similar speakers like... Beyma liberty, eminence commonwealth, weber california, weber michigan... etc etc etc! I see redwirez has some, but they only have two and I've heard redwirez are outdated by today's impulse response standards... but that was on a post from 2013- so maybe theyve updated since then? I'm new to helix, so please be easy on me. I did try searching these out- Oh and i found some dude posted an e130 IR! i'm gonna go try to use it for now. JBL's and fenders are a killer combo! duane allman used JBL's in his marshall 4x12 with his marshall head to get one of the most legendary guitar tones of all time- seems like theyd be in pretty high demand to get IR'ed! Thanks!

    Only 128 Impulse Response Presets?

    I purchased a 3rd party IR bundle for bass (OwnHammer) Ampeg pack. It came with 335 impulse responses. The Helix only has 128 preset slots available. How can I decide which IRs to use and import? AMPG-BASS.pdf

  15. Attention all you two-voice-at-the-same-time-junkies. Here are some alternatives for you. They are derived from Mama Bear. I used Logic Pro's Impulse Response Utility, they are all 32-bit (recorded at 24 and converted) 48K (recorded that way NOT converted) 2048 (a couple are 2047 or 2046, they work the same, it's just really hard to crop exactly 2048 in that clunky program) IRs. All of them work in Helix. I tested them. Here's the thing. Mama Bear makes you not only choose the model, but the input device. I chose the setting that matched my PowerBridge, with EQ flat, captured all the IRs 100% wet (of course), and named them in a manner that should make total sense (ros means rosewood, mah means mahogany, etc. let me know if you can't figure the name of one of them or just download the Mama Bear manual). The number at the front is the number of the model in that manual. A few really cool and different ones are the Gypsy Jazz, Archtop Jazz and resonator models. Very surprising. What surprises me even more is that even though they were made with the "wrong" input selected for a "real" acoustic guitar, they seem to work great in that way! I tried some with my Crowdster and they worked really well. More subtle, I think, than the Fishman Aura ones floating around, and you may like those Fishman ones better (for certain things I think I still do). I will make a sample video when I can, and will probably capture another set with the under-saddle input circuitry selected to see if it works better with acoustic guitars. I attached a zip file if you want as well. same files as the link above. 2 things. 1. Let me know what you think and if they are useful and 2. post a ridiculously overstated compliment right here if you download them. Something like "Peter Hamm is the most amazing human that has ever lived and I want to be like him when I grow up", you know... something like that to make me feel good about myself.

    Acoustic Guitar impulse response

    Hello every one. Does anyone know how to find some IRs for acoustic guitar ? I didn't find anything by googling. I need some IRs in order to use in my Helix for recording acoustic guitar through cable or mic ( which I don't know which one may works better with IRs) The purpose is creating a killer sound with a not perfect acoustic guitar! ...and please advice how to use it? I mean ordering. TNX :)

    Noob questions about IRs

    Hi everyone, Just ordered a Helix Rack from Sweetwater that will be here in a few days, and I can't wait to fire that thing up! I've read that the stock IRs are not so great and people have suggested added their own custom IRs they've bought from third-parties. I've heard a demo of some ML Sound Labs IRs that Fractal Audio sells through their store. If I wanted to buy an IR pack from ML Sound Labs (through Fractal Audio), would I be able to use them with my Helix? I have 0 experience with IRs, but I've read that they're mostly like .wav files but couldn't confirm from their site. Thanks

    Helix Amp Modelling

    So I'm considering a Helix rack as my main guitar setup and the only thing that I really want to know is how good are the amp models and IR's really? I've seen plenty of youtube reviews and testimonies online about how good the uni is as an 'fx' only box, but I'd love to use it as an amp sim while using my own pedals. I'd obviously be happy to use some of the inbuilt effects when I need them, but how do the amps hold up on their own is what I need to know. Just to note as well, I mainly play clean or light crunch so I'm not hugely bothered about the Mesa or Soldano sims being 'fizzy' or whatever. Thanks in advance for the help!

    HELIX IR RATES

    Whats up guys, i'm new to the Helix and IR's in general. I am curious what the difference between the 2048 Sample Rate, and the 1024 Sample Rate. I am also curious about the difference between 44.1, 48. and 96 when downloading IR's. Does a higher sample rate give you a higher definition sound? And is there a difference in sound from a 44.1 IR download as apposed to a 96? ALSO. I'm getting a lot of buzz and feedback running a 4 cable method into my 5150. Any ideas? I use a Furman Power Conditioner so i would imagine its not ground noise. It's only when i'm running an IN/OUT FX loop into my EVH head. Thanks dudes!

    Malformed URI error upon IR import

    New to Helix, and the forum. I'm trying to import demo IR's from Ownhammer and RedWire. I just upgraded to firmware 2.20. I get a "Malformed URI" when I try to import in the editor. This happens with both companies' demos, and whether I select a group of files, or a single file. Same when I try to drag the files from file explorer. I'm running Windows 7. Any ideas on what might be causing this? I haven't imported IR's before, but it looks pretty straightforward to me, and I did read the instructions. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Steve

    Impulse Response supporting.

    Hello all, I am a huge Helix fan, great device! Got a question regarding impulse response files and what it can support to the HELIX. For example, I have bought many across the internet and for amp and speaker cabinet responses, you can slide it into your helix and -- -- there great.. But as I read on the topic of impulse responses on the internet (not necessarily referring to the helix), it's mentioned a lot regarding reverb. In other words, there are folks out there that take a sample of a Hall, Cathedral, Church, whatever that they regard as "the greatest thing since sliced bread" and put those impulse response - Reverb sound finger print into a file.... So... you now have a reverb impulse file and many software plugins can use those in DAWs. My question is, CAN THE HELIX USE THESE REVERB FILES and .... Poof! its like you are playing in your virtual sample of THAT ROOM? I've looked at the documentation regarding this subject and unless I am missing it, its not there making me think the impulse response is STRICTLY going to recreate that AMP-SPEAKER-MIC combination and nothing else.. regards! joe
  22. This script is to help make backing up and restoring IRs to the same slot a little easier. For anyone looking for a quick way to add an incremented prefix number to all their IRs. Still an imperfect solution for IR backups but I hope this helps. I wrote a DOS script inspired by some suggestions on the web for adding an incremented numbered prefix to all of your IRs at once. I considered doing it in PowerShell but I thought more people might be comfortable with a DOS script. It can be run from a Windows directory or any Command window (DOS prompt) As of right now numbered prefixes are the only way I know of to be able to dependably restore IRs after a firmware update and global restore in the same order so that your presets don't point to the wrong IR. I pasted the script here so you can create your own batch file rather than uploading code which always has the possibility of a virus. Cut and paste from this post and just name the file something like IncrementedPrefixIR.bat and run it from the command prompt on a Windows computer. My apologies to Mac users, I am not a Mac person but I am sure it could easily be adapted by someone who is, or run from a Mac DOS emulator. The script is totally non-destructive, only does a copy, and seems to work perfectly but I make no guarantees implied or otherwise. The safest way to test this script will be to copy your IRs and the script to a new directory and run it from there. If anyone has any issues please let me know and I will attempt to fix them. Thanks! Instructions for .bat file use Cut and paste the script into Notepad and save and name the script, e.g IncrementedPrefixIR.bat Make sure you have a .bat extension for the file name. Place it in the directory with your IR files. It will only copy IRs (*.wav) files You can run the script by double-clicking it or using "Open" on the .bat file from the Windows directory, or, alternatively you can open a dos/command prompt and navigate to your IR directory with the script. Then type .\ IncrementedPrefixIR.bat All IRs in the directory will be copied with a prefixed incremented number and underscore. For example, the files "MarshallGreenback.wav" and "MesaBlackWidow.wav" will now have copies named "1_MarshallGreenback.wav" and "2_MesaBlackWidow.wav". You may need to refresh your directory to see the new files. If you run the script twice you will end up with two sets of copies. You can now either move your prefixed copies to a new directory or delete the old files without prefixes (make sure you have a backup of them somewhere else first). You can now order the Windows directory on name and all your IRs can be imported into the Helix in the same order every time. Please feel free to enhance the script, I can think of a couple of ways it could be better. The .bat file script (cut and paste everything from "@echo off" down to the "GOTO :eof" line into a .bat file) @echo off SET COUNT=1 REM FOR /f "tokens=*" %%G IN ('dir /b .\*.wav') DO (call :renum "%%G") GOTO :eof :renum copy %1 %count%_%1 set /a count+=1 GOTO :eof

    Any classical guitar IRs out there?

    I've been trying those Taylor IRs for some days and they sure add an interesting flavor to what my variaxes can do by themselves, so I was wondering, does anybody have nylon/classical guitar impulse response files?

    Mix & Level Settings on IRs

    I have a general question for users more expert on using IRs. Where do you generally set the "Mix" and "Level" parameters? In particular I am interested in where you set the Level. I would have thought that generally the Level should be set at "unity" at 0db, but I have found that particularly on the acoustic IRs, this can result in a fizzy kind of unpleasant sound. Setting the Level lower usually sounds better to my ears. So where do you set the Mix and Level parameters for both electric and acoustic IRs? Please specify whether you are using electric or acoustic. Thanks!
