    Helix Pop Punk Setting

    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?

    POD HD500X Effects

    Hi, I just recently bought the POD HD500X and was wondering can the POD achieve tones like titanium, Don't let me down by Chainsmokers and also the new upcoming songs. The reason i asked this is because i am a beginner guitarists and am just learning by myself. It would be great if someone could help me out. Another question is that i try to get through the CUSTOMTONE patches for beat it solo for my POD HD500X but i can't get it cause no one has done the patches for the song for the POD HD 500X and i do not really know what effects are being used for that song. So was wondering can the pod achieve the tone as well.
  3. Hi, Warner Music just released my first song. I used the Helix for the guitar sound and as the sound-cart. I've been a Line6 user for many years, got a lot of gear from them and I just love it. Its not only nice sounding but is also let you be very creative. I'm very interested if you like the song and the sound of the lead guitar. Please let me know! I used the Fatality amp model. https://youtu.be/qsBgSddEamo this is the preset I used https://line6.com/customtone/tone/3978061/
  4. Sorry for the delay as I have been swamped. Today we have a Nirvana tone and playthrough for Come as You Are. This was a lot of fun to record and while the tones aren't a spot on recreation, I feel it fits the song. Of course, all guitar and bass were recorded using the Line 6 Helix using Ownhammer impulses.

    Need help with a modern metal tone

    So, as cliched as this question undoubtedly is, I need some help getting my helix to do a djent/prog modern metal sort of thing. Think Meshuggah/TesseracT/Periphery. For the high gain tones, I've been running my Precision Drive in the FX loop and going through the "angl meteor" head and the Redwirez ENGL cabinet impulses. It doesn't sound terrible, but it's always either too thin or too muddy. I also have some problems with buzzing (which probably means I just need to adjust the gate). For the clean tone, I want to try to duplicate the TesseracT cleans. I've got it fairly close by using the "twin reverb" head with no cab and a lot of reverb/delay. It distorts in a really weird way sometimes though. I obviously don't know how to work this thing as well as I should. Can anyone help me out?

    TesseracT Bass Tone

    Has anyone managed to replicate Amos's (TesseracT) bass tone in the Helix? If so, how is it done?
  11. Hey guys, Today I have another Helix Tone and playthrough for you. Cirice by Ghost is a great, heavy rock song. I used Ownhammer Impulses all over this thing, from the clean tones to the bass. HEAVY GUITAR: The amp I used was the Line 6 Brit 2204 which is modeled after the Marshall JCM 800. I used Ownhammers OH 412 ENG v30 JS which is a mixed IR by Jon Symons DIRTY INTRO GUITAR: I used the Jazz Rivet 120 model with Ownhammer OH HHC2 SOAP FULL CLEAN INTRO: I used the US DOUBLE Nrm with Ownhammer OH HHC2 THOR FAT BASS: I used the SV Beast Brt with the Ownhammer OH 410 AMPG SVT-10 PORT The drums are from the great guys over at SilentUndergroundStudios and their backing tracks https://www.silentundergroundstudio.com/bt-cirice

    Pantera/Dimebag Tone Walkthrough

    A detailed walkthrough of my Pantera/Dimebag tone!
  13. Hey guys, Today I have a “Dimebag” Darrel / Pantera inspired guitar tone. I threw together some fun Pantera riffs to demo the tone. It’s more of a hybrid of Dime’s tone as it evolved through Reinventing the Steel. This was a lot of fun. I used Ownhammer impulses on this one. Their stuff is the best. I used a blend of: OH 412 ENG V30 421-FRED OH 412 ENG V30 421-EDGE FRED for cutting through and the EDGE for the chunk and low end. I used the LINE 6 Fatality model. CHAIN: PRS Tremonti SE loaded with Fishman Fluence Moderns Line 6 Helix Rack using the Line 6 Fatality amp model and Ownhammer Impulses Into the Universal Audio Apollo Twin which feeds Persons Studio One 3 Drums are Toontrack Superior Drummer 3
  14. Very sorry for the long post, but I truly feel it's necessary... Some might already know me from The Gear Page and it's been pointed out that maybe I should post this here in order to have a bigger impact, I'd reach more people really invested in making Helix better. Recently a couple of threads about Fuzz and Input Impedance came up, it seems a good time to push this idea forward and greatly improve our experience while playing w/ Helix. I'm a big fuzz fan. When I started getting heavy into dial in my tones, I found this problem... I dialed my Plexi tone, sounded great, then I added a fuzz face model in front of it, again it sounded great, but when I turned it off, the tone of the amp alone was gone, it sounded muffled. After asking around and some research I found that the culprit was the input impedance, more specifically, the auto setting. Input impedance influences tone and feel, it has to do with the interaction of you guitar signal and the first thing it hits on your pedalboard. To make a pedal behave on a modeler like its "real" counterpart, units use analog circuits to mimic the different input impedances you'd find in a regular pedalboard or amp. For example, usually amps have an input impedance of 1M, but if you put a fuzz in front of it, they usually have an input impedance around 10k, and that's what the guitar will see. A lot of people get confused and say that "well, if you bypass the fuzz, the input impedance is the same", but that's not exactly right. We have basically true bypass and buffered bypass, true bypass acts like there's nothing really there, signal goes straight through; buffered bypass makes the signal go through a buffer, and a buffer itself is actually an amp, and in this case the input impedance will be whatever the input bypass of the buffer is. We will ignore the buffered one. A buffer serves the sole purpose of avoiding signal degradation caused by long running cables - and it doesn't come without its own short comings, anyone that has triad a fuzz face after a buffer knows it - but because inside a modeler it doesn't happen, we can think Helix as a kind of paradise where there's no place for Bob Bradshaw, LA Sound Design, Gig Rig, Pete Cornish and a bunch of other companies, whose sole purpose is to make sure your guitar still sounds like your guitar after going through a metric ton of cables and gear. We'll assume everything is true bypass, because, as we don't have to worry about signal loss through cables, that's the best option, no question about it. Back to input impedance. Everything being true bypass, that means it's going straight through, so the input impedance the guitar sees is of whatever is the first block that's actually on! Going back to my example. In this ideal world, what should happen when I bypassed my fuzz? Signal would go straight through and would see the input impedance of the amp! Turn the Fuzz on and it sees the input impedance of the Fuzz Face! Nice!... Except it's not what happens in Helix. The auto setting doesn't search for the first active block, it goes for the first one, being on OR off. That's why it sounds different! When I turn the Fuzz off, Helix isn't changing the input impedance, so the guitar still sees the low input impedance of the Fuzz Face, making the amp sound just muddy, muffled. Tha auto setting as it works right now is doing pretty much nothing useful. Why? Because what it does is fixing the input impedance to whatever effect is first. If you have a compressor first, impedance will be fixed at 1M, as long as you don't change the signal path, specifically the very first effect, impedance won't change. But nobody changes the signal path while playing, so it's not really useful. Takes away the guess work to find the input impedance of the first effect, but by fixing it, makes everything that goes after have the same input impedance, making the models not nearly as accurate as they could be if the input impedance was set properly. Fixes? Two main ones are usually proposed. After a few FW updates since release the input impedance went from a global preset to the input part of every preset, great! It also can be assigned to footswitches?! GREAT! But it only works for very simple cases. It would for just fuzz-amp. I'd assign the input impedance to the footswitch that turned the fuzz on and off and make it change the input impedance from 10k to 1M. Good! But it doesn't work that great when you put just another pedal in. Let's have Fuzz-Tubescreamer-Amp, all three input impedances are different; when playing the amp it would be 1M, turning the Fuzz on would make it 10k, but now if I turn the Tubescreamer the impedance should not change, but if we assign the input impedance change to its footswitch, it will do just that. But then snapshots came and had to be it, right! Not exactly. By itself it works, but it's extremely limiting and you take in consideration the combinations of pedals I could have using the stomp mode. I'd need 4 snapshots to deal with the fuzz-ts-amp case and set the impedance accordingly, that's not really practical - and the stomp mode is still crippled. Isn't there a definitive fix? You guessed, fix the auto setting of the input impedance. If after everything I said you don't believe me, here's what the competition has to say about this: From http://community.avid.com/blogs/avid/archive/2010/04/06/the-truth-about-true-z.aspx (and a great read if you want to understand what input impedance actually does. Spoiler, it's not about bypass) "Typical guitar modeling processors have a fixed input impedance, which can limit the accuracy of the modeling. Eleven Rack's True-Z circuitry is designed to solve this problem by automatically changing the input impedance to closely match the impedance of the first active effect in the Eleven Rack signal chain." From http://www.fractalaudio.com/downloads/manuals/axe-fx-2/Axe-Fx-II-Owners-Manual.pdf "The Axe-Fx II recreates this effect by switching various (real) resistors and a capacitor in and out of the signal path. In Auto mode, the impedance is automatically set based on the first active effect the input "sees." Normally you will want to leave this on AUTO..." Here's the link to the ideascale where I proposed the auto setting fix: https://line6.ideascale.com/a/idea-v2/862873 Vote up!
  15. So many users of the line 6 spider iv amps have had issues with the tones going thin or tinny, or muffled and low volume etc. I have a line 6 spider iv 120 and had the same thing start with mine. Well mine was what I call a cascading issue that led me to find what this issue is probably in almost all of your problems too. Seems the main board or brain has a few components used in circuit boards called voltage regulators. basically is drops the voltage down to what it needs to be and then the extra basically causes heat or is the by product which is correct and normal. the regulators have little metal tabs connected as a heat radiator to get rid of heat.......well the one regulator , which is one right beside the plug from the amp supply is the one that gets a little to hot and has a built in kind of thermal safety and kicks out or doesnt run like it should and that is when the sounds get weird, cut out, reset amp, etc. mine caused one of the solder joints on its 3 connections that was weak to start to crack and then when it got warmer it really kicked in to awful mode. so the solution? it is simple and cheap like 47 cents..... they make a heat radiator or fin that attaches to it with a clip, screw, or a thermal glue that is nothing more than an aluminum piece with fingers that is about size of my thumb and now not one issue ever!!!! you can get them on ebay, amazon, etc. there are 2 voltage regulators that are side by side on board and have metal tab, 3 legs connected to board. easy to just attach them and heat issue is gone!! hope this helps someone.

  23. There was a recent (now deleted) thread discussing what the Presence Control does and how it may enhance the sound. In an effort to add something productive to the discussion and to document how the various tone controls operate, I took my HD500 into the lab and measured the Frequency Response of various amplifiers. You can find the full report here (3M big, too big to attach here). A couple of points to note are mentioned in the front page of the summary as follows: Test setup: APx525 -> Guitar Input -> HD500 -> SPDIF Output -> APx525 Input level: -52dBV. This is very small but was required to keep the high gain amps in their linear region. SNR was still better than 60dB. HD500 settings: Inputs: Guitar/Variax Guitar: normal Channel Volume = 100% E.R. = 0% Drive level adjusted to give the best THD+N (usually below 0.2%) for the cleanest looking graphs No cabs (and therefore no mics, no Cab DEP parameters) Amp DEP settings: Master Volume = 100% Hum = 0% All other controls (Sag, Bias, Bias X): default values (50%) Tone controls were set to give the flattest reasonable response. As one control was varied, the others were kept at this “flat†setting. This doesn't represent a setting that necessarily "sounds good" but it provides a good starting point for comparisons. Also, the low level input allows the underlying frequency response of the amps to be seen. For larger signals, like guitar level signals, distortion terms will become more noticeable and add more high frequency content, perhaps making the amp sound different from what you may expect by looking at these graphs. So, use these just as a guide. Or use them to figure out what the controls do. Some are cuts, some are boosts, some are both. Some operate over a much wider frequency range than you'd expect. And now you can see what the FAC control does! Finally, I did not measure the effects of how these controls may effect the dynamic response of the amp. Adjusting them might effect the "feel" of the amp. I do not know. These measurements will not tell us. Enjoy, I hope you find them useful. ----------------------------------------------- Edited Jan18, 2018 to update Dropbox link.
