Hey guys! I have had my Helix Rack and Powercab 112 for probably a month now, and I have maybe tried to mess with getting tones for about 6-7 hours total. I am quite stumped and I'm overwhelmed with the options so I was hoping someone could guide me in creating a good tone. I have managed to find a clean tone that I like with a pedal to give me a bit of bite to it. Here is how it goes: Guitar -> Compulsive Drive (Gain 7.5, Tone 5.4, Low Peak, V2, and Level 6.5) -> Noise Gate (Threshold -67dB, Decay 228ms, Level -7.6dB) -> Essex 30 (Drive 5.2, Bass 5.6, Cut 7.1, Treble 6.4, Presence 6.3, Ch Vol 8.2, Master 10, Sag 4.1, Hum, Ripple, Bias, Bias X all at 5) -> 4x12 Greenback 20 (Mic 121 Ribbon, Distance 1, Low and High cut off, Early Reflections 0%, and level 0db) -> Searchlights (Decay 2.5, Predelay 0.0ms, Low Cut off, High Cut 7.8kHz, Mix 43%, Level 0dB, Modulation 2.1, Speed 3.7, Intensity 2.8, Trails off) However, I am trying to achieve a bit of a heavier tone for some of the songs that I like to play from some of my favorite bands. For example, I like bands like State Champs and Knuckle Puck who have a heavier tone than your more familiar pop punk bands like Green Day and Blink-182. I was able to achieve something with the Orange Rockerverb MKIII that I ditched to go modeling, but I have been having a hard time finding something similar in the helix. Everytime I try, I get really overwhelmed as well. Can someone point me in the right direction? Also, is there a way to have two amps in one setting? Like, if I want to use the Essex 30 for my cleans but use a higher gain amp for dirty, can I have them exist in the same setting and toggle between the two easily? If so, how do you do it?
