Custom Tones - Get Down Tonight, Hotel California, and Shippin Up To Boston Guitar Tones

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, I'm currently using a Digitech GSP1101 which has a pretty good sound I created years ago for the guitar part in the songs "Get Down Tonight," by KC and the Sunshine Band, Hotel California and Shipping Up to Boston. However, I'm having trouble creating similar presets in Helix. Any suggestions regarding which effects to use and possible settings would be greatly appreciated. I'm also looking to recreate a Hotel California preset and Shipping Up to Boston. Until I can match these presets which I have in my Digitech unit, I can't use the Helix live. Anywhere these can be downloaded or purchased? Time is precious on my schedule. Thanks!

You don't mention what guitar you are using? If you are duplicating the recorded sound, you would do well to google what was used originally, and start there. ( I mean amp and effects )

The original song Get Down Tonight, had a sped up guitar effect so it sounded like an Octavia or other pitch shifter. The Helix doesn't seem to get this sound right for some reason.
