Hey guys, so I just recently started a band and we're kinda going into the direction of Midwest Emo with Pop Punk influences... I haven't been playing for long and I'm super inexperienced with tone, pedals, amps etc. so I'm just asking for some pointers, maybe someone knows some great already existing presets for the pod go? I'm also open to pay for presets if they're really good. I really wanna get a guitar tone that goes into the direction of bands like Modern Baseball, Mom Jeans, Tiny Moving Parts etc. I know these bands have kinda different guitar tones at times, but if you know the genre you'll get what I mean. I don't know if it helps but I have a Squier Telecaster with two wide range pickups and I usually lean more towards playing rhythm guitar, because I also sing (and I'm not f*ing Dylan Mattheisen ^^) Already saying thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to help me out here! :)
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?
