Let's put the real name to the presets

Recommended Posts

Hi. Who are the artists who inspired the presets? I think I know some of them, but you can help to complete the list  ;)
 
Notes:
- Amp presets are eliminated (I hope so, if there are someone it's my mistake)
- When not sure for a preset, I will put "(?)" after the suggerences. If there are several, I will put each of theirs separate by a "|"

Come As You Are - Nirvana?

Dark Uncle Floyd - Pink Floyd. Not sure what the uncle means though.

Even Betta Than - U2, better than the real thing?

Fast Lane - Eagles. Life in the fast lane?

Fire Woman - The Doors. Light My Fire/LA Woman?

Mad House - Madness. Our house?

Raining Princess - Prince. Purple Rain?

Not disappointed at all, it is modeled after Eddies 5150 amp by Peavey.

Not at home to check the tone so maybe not for that specific song.

A long time ago on the Vetta IIRC, there was a 3rd party software that made the Amp names what they really were. Not sure thats even possible with Helix.

What's in a name? Talk is cheap ;)

Sorry for my ingnorance :wub:  Is this the name of the band?

 

 

 

I've included the name of your proposals. As there are dubts, I've write the severals bands separate by a | and a (?) sign at the end.

This is amazing. Let's try to name all of them and find a way to update the Helix with the real names.

What would you guys think about being able to export your setlist to Excel *.xlsx or *.csv text file, edit it in Excel with all of the copy/paste/concatenate/etc. tools, then import it back in?

 

Line 6 could likely create a simple preset list Excel export/import tool in the Helix app.  A lot of software companies either build in this type of functionality or publish it in an API for third parties to develop it.

 

It may also be possible to export block settings, change values (copy/paste from others/etc.), and import back in.  This might also be helpful for checking purposes.

It seems to me while some are based on artists, some are based on songs, and some are based on just the amps which are known for a sound.  

 

Would love to see the full list complete.

I guess that Royal Power Duo is something that the duo Royal Blood might use - they are only Bass and Drums with effects on the Bass making it sound like a guitar

I have no Helix so these are big guesses.

 

Austin Clean - Eric Johnson Clean

Austin Lead - Eric Johnson Distortion

Interstate Zed - Led Zepplin

Lights - Lights Journey

You've Got - You've Got Another Thing Coming OR You Really Got Me

And some of them simply are jokes from the development team :-)

I think HelixHelp.com would be a perfect spot for this list to reside ultimately.

Can't use real names. 3rd party takes a risk and gets away with it but major manufacturers can't or won't because it would cost too much for permissions or be breaking federal copywrite copyright laws.

Yes, I think so. I tried to upload the list at HelixHelp time ago, but it seems that only the owner can add content. If the owner read this: you can publish the list if you want :)

HelixHelp.com is third party. It is run by a forum member.

Sorry about the mis spell- I hate auto spelling correctors sometime lol. Saying what the names mean on a website is not the same thing as adding these real names in the running software. Big difference "copyright" wise.

Sweet Dispozish - Sweet Emotion?

 

I'm fairly sure  it's "Sweet Disposition" by The Temper Trap. Have a listen, lots of delay in the vein of U2's The Edge.
