PhilDuggan posted a topic in HelixHello Everyone, Firstly, before I begin I would like to preface this by saying that if such a resource exists that I am about to propose please by all means link it and have a moderator or admin shut this thread down I would rather be told I haven't looked hard enough than to waste both your own and my time. From my own experience as a Helix user I have realised I have barely scratched the surface of what this device can do and for me going through articles and forum posts can be a bit of a drag while also intimidating. As a result I have been sitting on the idea of creating video based content to help users learn more about how to get the most out of the Helix, but I wanted to ask the community as I am just one person and my opinion is subjective. I know of the likes of Jason Sadites who puts out some amazing content and Helix help that already do a lot to help the community learn so that may already defeat the purpose of what I am asking. To Flesh out the idea: - A video based resource that provides detailed information on a stock helix set up - Deep dives into individual effects, amps and cabs etc. so that option paralysis is reduced and people can understand best what to use in a certain situation e.g. If someone were to ask how do I create a smooth Blues tone for lead and rhythm then there would be a video available that details the blocks that you could use and how certain amps/cab combos will give a different flavour to the general sound and some effects that you can use to further your soundscape. - Making all of this content centralised so that it is readily available to everyone - A view to expanding the content beyond stock Helix e.g using Impulse Responses, which ones work well for what purpose and more I have seen there are quite a few videos out there for the Axe-Fx and when you search that exact term in the likes of Youtube you will get results on generating presets or information on different amps quickly. While searching "Line 6 Helix" will primarily bring up reviews, first impressions, opinion videos, comparisons and you will have to make a more specific search such as "Line 6 Helix blues presets" to find more information on that side of things. I fully appreciate, if you are looking for a tutorial on Blues tone you are probably going to search the more specific version. The ultimate goal is to create a centralised platform/resource that will help people to master the Helix so that they will no longer worry about how to use any of it's features. If it is something people want I would be looking for help from the community to learn more(my selfish intent) and represent the information as best as possible so that it is effective in it's approach and purpose. From University I learned that there are different types of learners and am looking to appeal to the visual learners, those that find it difficult to run through a purely text based information. I merely ask for your feedback and opinions! Again to repeat myself I am happy to be proven wrong and linked to an article/website/forum that already does this! Thank you for your time, Phil
Hello folks, I just received my Helix Floorboard and I'm really excited to get started. I auditioned the presets with my JBL LSR305 and... oh boy they sound like crap. There's obviously something wrong I'm doing because I heard many videos made with the Helix and they all sound better through the same speakers so it's matter of setting things up properly. Where can I go to get a solid primer on how to create sounds for the Helix? I would like some help working with high gain sounds (think The Muse but also Corroded, Five Finger Death Punch) and some more spacey sounds a la Pink Floyd, Tycho etc... Any tip is welcome!
Mike_Rogers posted a topic in POD HDHi all New guy here to both Line 6 and the HD500x. Not interested in using the presets and I would like to get right into creating my own tones, using the modeling features to their fullest potential. What are the best resources (vids/tutorials etc.) to start with? Thanks! :)
I have had a bunch of Line6 gear over the years. A Spider 2x10 and 2x12 in red, two Spider II 2x12s in gray and a Spider Jam, which I bought thinking I could use it to, well, "Jam!" I've been a rhythm play for a hundred years but lately I've been wanting to branch out a little, maybe take a spotlight and a solo now and again, or at least freshen-up some of my rhythm playing. So, I popped for the Jam. My problems basically boil down to probably not spending enough time with it, but it's so frustrating that my time with my Spider Jam isn't... pleasant. I'll find a sound that I like, and then can't ever seem to get it back if I don't save it as one of my limited tracks. I've got a short pedal, an FBV Express, but can't seem to use it to start recording, play a verse and a chorus and then stop recording and play back what I've done so I can work on a solo. The instructions for both left a little to be desired. There are some videos on YouTube which have been a little more helpful, but I really felt like this would be a better bargain, when I bought it. I don't feel like I'm getting much value out of it, now. Is there a source somewhere that can tell me what jam tracks are installed and how to get to them? Suppose I found a bluesy rock jam and didn't want to burn one of my own channelsâ€”how to get back there, again? Are they in some kind a .pdf somewhere? And is there a quick and easy way to get from one to another? How do you clear them all out and get back to just a standard Line6 Spider amp, without any other settings involved? And what's the trick to getting my FBVExpress to run the loops, please? I've been around computers for thirty years and guitars for forty! But this thing is a real challenge. I love it, but I just don't feel like I'm getting much out of it, really. Thanks!
