  1. Hey guys, I just finished a tutorial in which I explain how to get some convincing John Petrucci tones with Line 6 Helix (Native) and OwnHammer Recto 2x12/4x12 IR's from the new 6-pack bundles. These tones can be translated to all the different Helix platforms. The sounds came out pretty darn good IMHO..... Let me know what you think! Enjoy:
  2. Time for another gear emulation comparison! This video is all about comparing the Mesa Boogie MKIV emulations in the following platforms (in no particular order): Helix (Native, Floor, Rack or LT) Axe FX Kemper Profiler Amplitube 4 (Mesa pack) Thermionik S-gear Those were all the platforms of which I am aware that they emulate the MKIV amp. Most of them did a very good job but I have a few favorites. The Helix tones did come out very good in the end in my honest opinion! So congrats to Line 6 for not only making such a brilliant emulation of this amp, but also for being such a good competitor to brands like Kemper and Fractal. Of course I'd love to know which one you though was best so let me know! A couple of notes: I know that the S-Gear Wayfarer amp isn't exactly based on a Mesa MKIV or any other amp for that matter, but I do think it's very much inspired by those types of amps and it can be tweaked to sound quite close. That's why I included it anyway. About the Kemper clip: I recognize that the Kemper example perhaps doesn't sound as good as some of the others. Unfortunately I didn't have a MKIV here to profile so I had to rely on existing (commercial) profiles. To keep things as accurate as I could, I chose a direct MKIV profile from a commercial vendor to be able to use the same IR as with the rest. I had to tweak from there. This was honestly the best profile I could find for this test. I guess that's just a drawback of this platform sometimes since you can't ever start a 'preset' from scratch.
