Line 6 Helix Mixtest - Karnivool - Simple Boy

Recommended Posts

OKAY. agreed.gif

So i finally got around to throwing a little demo together of some sounds from the Helix! shredder.gif

All of the sounds are straight from helix, with NO post processing. the drums are EZDrummer2's Progressive kit with some adjustments to it.

Guitar playing is a bit sloppy, but im stoked on the bass tones im getting from this so far! Guitar tone is still something im endeavoring to be happy with, but iv loved all the sounds im getting from helix so far!~

The mix is a bit bass heavy as it was like 1am when I was recording this, but still.

 

 

 

Gear Used:

Ibanez SRFF806
Ibanez RG721RW
Helix
EZdrummer 2
Cubase

That sounds fantastic mate, I'm a massive 'vool fan. 

 

Karnivool are just incredible. Probably one of my biggest inspirations! :D

 

Im still tweaking the guitar tone to be more full but its really coming along. IR's make such a massive difference!

Yeah -- love those tones. Please share on customtone. Dialed them in nicely.

 

Cheers man! :)

Funnily enough, the bass patch is a blend of the GK Cougar sim, and the ANGL Meteor - which I didn't expect to turn out so nicely. Just high passing/low passing the different paths so that the highs are being driven and the lows are clean.

Ill try upload them when I get around to it!

Sounds great! The bass tone is awesome. I'm definitely going to have to try that tone when I get a bass. It's kind of like doing the King's X Doug Pinnick thing. He used to use a Mesa Dual Rectifier along with his bass rig to get that top end drive and sizzle.

 

What Guitar amp models and IR's you using?

The ANGL Meteor/ENGL Fireball, and the GK Cougar bass amp. I actually just ran both amps through separate SVT 8x10 Helix cab sims.

I scooped all the mids on my bass and raised the treble, which is where all that grind comes from!

 

so on my Ibanez fan fret, its like neutral on bass, fully scooped on mids, and fully maxed on treble - lightly compressing both signals into each amp. The rest is helix! The low pass on the clean channel, and high pass on the engl is really important to blend the two amps nicely~~

ill try upload it when I can :P
