Essentials for a new patch templateHi chaps, I got my Helix yesterday and it's fantastic! I've played around with most of the presets and now it's time to start making a few of my own. I still consider myself a novice even though I've been playing for a few years and I don't really understand EQ and all that sort of stuff. I only play along to my favourite songs at home but I HAVE to sound like the original, sad but true! I was wondering if I could ask you knowledgeable gentlemen what you would consider the absolute essentials when starting to build a patch. I was thinking I could create a template of my own and then use that for all my patches. Most of the songs I play are quite similar anyway, mainly late 70s early 80s punk sounds. Appreciate any advice you can offer. I love this forum and think I am going to get endless hours of enjoyment from my Helix. I am running a variax into the helix and then out to the effects return of my Roland Blues Cube Artist. It sounds great with most of the patches I've tried and I haven't tried the four cable method - does anyone think that may be a better option? many thanks
