sad but true

I think there is great value in presets of songs. I have discovered great players that I did not know existed. I have learned songs that I had not heard before. I have learned new tunings with my Variax. When I tried a patch that I didn't care for, when I play it with the song, I am usually impressed. That gives me a point of reference and helps me spontaniously to choose presets when I am performing songs. The presets that I latched onto first on the Helix are 25? No, 6 to 4 (Chicago Terry Kath) and Kashmir (Led Zepplin Jimmy Page). Both patches sound pretty faithful to me.

If you are an expert at creating patches, or have found some you really love, why not share some with us?  I am open to trying presets that are not related to songs and to give credit where credit is due.

Hi,

 

There is always "Customtone" - available from the menu at the top of this page - that's where the sharing happens. Although, be aware - not all to the creators of the patches would claim to be experts.

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.

 

P.S. You were replying to a post from from January 2018 and the guy who posted it has not left another comment since November 2019 - "Sad but true"

It's a bit weird, I don't know if this is normal but some of the listed presets are missing in my current Helix settings, whereas I made a factory reset after the last update (firmware v3.5). For instance, I'm missing the "Dream pop lead" and the "Jazz 2 me". Perhaps some of them have been replaced in the last version, anybody knows ?

Hi,

 

If you followed the instructions about updating your firmware to v3.50, then you would have made a back up of the presets that were already in your Helix. 
 

Do a restore from backup to load the missing "Dream pop lead" and the "Jazz 2 me", then save them (and any others you may require) as individual presets. You can the load them to whatever slot you wish. Simply a process of file management and file juggling.

 

Always work on a copy.

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.
