  1. Hey Guys, Today I have yet another modern metal tone using the Line 6 Helix, Ownhammer Impulse Responses and the Line 6 Badonk amp model. I have two IR's stacked in this one using the phase trick I demonstrated in my video about IR's and how I use them. The song in this video is an original with the working title of Simplicity. This is one of my favorite, recent tracks. Thanks again for all the positivity and support and as always, if you have any questions or ideas, let me know in the comments. I try and get back to everyone.
  2. Hey Guys, Today I have a playthrough of my newest instrumental track, Beautiful Burden. This song was recorded using my Solar Guitars A 1.6 Artist LTD. All guitar and bass were tracked with the Line 6 Helix Rack using Ownhammer Impulses I’m really proud of how this track turned out. The gutters cut through and sound aggressive and heavy. That bass is low and gnarly and the overall mix may be one of my best. I'm thinking about releasing this as a single on all digital platforms. Let me know what you guys think and again, thanks so much for all the love and support. nickhillmakesmusic@gmail.com

    Helix LT sucks. Badly.

    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 ...?
  4. Hey Guys, Today I answer a question I've received a few times, Do I use global EQ settings with the Line 6 Helix? Short answer, yes. I go over what I do, the settings I use, and why.
  5. Hey guys, Today we have an explanation and tone walkthrough of the "Simple Metal Tone," from the last tone video I posted. This one is super simple and would be a great use case for the HX Stomp. I used Ownhammer impulses of course and my Solar Artist A 1.6. The signal flow is as follows Solar A1.6 Artist - Line 6 Helix Rack - Ownhammer IR (OH 412 ENG V30 421-05) Universal Apollo Twin Presonus Studio One 4 nickhillmakesmusic@gmail.com https://www.facebook.com/nickhillmakesmusic https://www.twitter.com/nhillmakesmusic https://www.instagram.com/nickhillmakesmusic/ My Band | The Partisan Component https://thepartisancomponent.bandcamp.com/
  6. Hey guys. I've had some requests for a heavy tone that can be used for a Standard or Drop D tuned guitar. I came up with this. Hope you guys like it. I experimented a bit with this tone using two signal paths to blend together. Each path uses the PV Panama model. Per usual, I used Ownhammer Impulses. It is a blend of OH 412 ENG V30 421-FRED and OH 212 ZLSF V30 OH1-05 More details to come in the tone explanation video later this week. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and Xmas.
  7. Hey Guys, Today I have a Line 6 Helix Tone inspired by the amazing UK band Architects. The song is an original I wrote while playing around with this tone. I used two Ownhammer Impulses OH 412 TRAD V70 121-00 and OH 412 TRAD V60 OH1F-05 Explanation video to follow in the next few days. Thanks so much for all the support, positive comments and input. You guys are awesome.

  11. Hey guys, Today I explain my Ola Englund / The Haunted tone that I made for the Line 6 Helix. The IR pack I used is from none other than Ownhammer and can be found here https://bit.ly/2H8Il4k I demonstrate the tone within Line 6 Helix Native but I created it on the Line 6 Helix Rack. All you have to do is drag and drop your tone and IR files into Helix Native to get this to work. Here is the original video https://youtu.be/Oa8iPG96mFg Thank you guys and have a great day. nickhillmakesmusic@gmail.com https://www.facebook.com/nickhillmakesmusic https://www.twitter.com/nhillmakesmusic https://www.instagram.com/nickhillmakesmusic/ My Band | The Partisan Component https://thepartisancomponent.bandcamp.com/

  13. Hey guys, Today I have a new Helix tone based on The Haunted and Ola Englund. I did a truncated version of Preachers of Death, mainly because the song is difficult and I'm not that great a guitar player. I used Ownhammers newest offering, the 412 MRBW GNR M25 MMMC Let me tell you, this IR pack offers ENDLESS possibilities. The Chain: My PRS Tremonti SE with Fishman Fluence Moderns - Line 6 Helix Rack using the OH 412 MRBW GNR SP2-04 - Universal Apollo Twin - Presonus Studio One 4

  20. Hey Guys, I wanted to do a playthrough of the song Snakes by my band/project The Partisan Component. All guitars and bass were tracked with the Line 6 Helix Rack using Ownhammer Impulses. I'm going to do a video breaking down the mix of this track as it is a little more nuanced than some of my other tones and mixes.

  22. Hey Guys, I got a request for a Keith Merrow / Alluvial tone and I was inspired. I can't say it's spot on but it sounds pretty good to my ears. The patch uses the Line 6 Badonk amp model into an Ownhammer OH 412 ENG 12C+V30 JS IR. The guitar is a PRS SE 277 loaded with Fishman Fluence Modern pickups. Everything was recorded with the Line 6 Helix Rack into the Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo into Presonus Studio One 3.
