Helix - Metal


Recommended Posts

I tried my best to get a Line 6 Helix - Metal video up as soon as possible so people can know what to expect and how it performs in a studio setting. Here's what I came up with

I used the stock noise gate, screamer 808 and ANGL Meteor with a downloaded Impulse Response (Engl Special Edition) from here ( (follow the relink in the article comments). 


I used an LTD Vampire Biotech M guitar with an EMG 81 bridge pickup

Settings are:
Noise Gate: Threshold -30db, Decay 188ms, Level 0.0db
Screamer 808: Gain 2.6, Tone 0.0, Level 6.7

Amp: Drive 9.1, Bass 4.8, Mid 7.1, Treble 5.2. Presence 6.3, Ch Vol 8.7, Master 5.1, Sag 3.2, Hum 5.0, Ripple 7.9, Bias 7.7, Bias X 6.0, Mid Boost Off

IR: Low Cut off, High Cut off, Mix 100%, Level -18.0db


Helix output volume: 100%

Awesome! Glad to hear that it worked for ya. Somebody on YouTube said that they loaded the preset and it locked up their Helix and needed a factory reset. I'm curious if that's a firmware issue, a problem brought about by not having the IR loaded first, or just a bug. Needless to say I'm encouraging people to back up all their presets before installing Custom Presets just to be safe. Either way, thanks for the share!
