Thanks very much guys, I'm chuffed with the tones i've got out of the Helix so far and started experimenting today using the helix amp models and making impulses from famous artist tones. The results have blown me away. Over 100 slots to store our impulses on the Helix sounds a lot at first but i wish there was 1000 slots I'm gonna run out of slots fast  :lol:

There are a couple of IdeaScale entries for more IR space.  Here's a few I found - there may be others.  Vote on them if you think that's a good idea:

Cool stuff. Wish there was a way to access these and future presets without joining Facebook, which isn't going to happen here.

Really like the tones you're getting and the beginning melody is highly memorable and energy inducing.

For the life of me I can't hear a difference!

I am totally impressed! :o

Joined the FB group, thanks for approving my request so quickly.  

 

I think what you're doing is really cool and I'm excited to get home tonight and load up your presets and IR's.  Thank you so much for the time you're putting into doing this!

 

Out of curiosity, and you don't have to go into any more detail than you want to of course, but how do you capture IR's of the artist's sounds to an IR?  I know you mentioned having the isolated tracks, but I've never done any work capturing IR's and I find that process fascinating :)

Thanks guys, @Chuskey  Thanks i hope you like the presets, To capture an IR of an artist tone initially just requires EQ matching software like Izotope Ozone EQ section. You would get it to listen to a target tone for a few seconds then tell it to listen to your reference tone (your own axe with amp modeling on but no cab engaged) then just apply the corrected curve.

 

After that, run some sine sweeps through the match to create the IR. It's pretty cool and can capture 99% of the stuff i've tried. The only difference is when someone else uses a patch you made this way is it will sound a little different with different types of pick ups but i suppose thats true of any tone. Im doing a few experiments for IRs at the front of the chain that will simply convert a Humbucker to single coil and vice versa. If these turn out good ill upload them to the group too  :)

 

Cheers

Got it! Thanks so much Chris. Now I've just got to figure out how facebook works. I've been actively avoiding it but I've finally succumbed.
