mikegibbo52 Posted June 17, 2017 Share Posted June 17, 2017 Ok I have had my Helix for a month now, bought some patches, some good some not quite there. I play covers so I am spending hours trying to duplicate original sounds. I am getting there slowly, but some sounds are thin and tinny on the high strings and flabby and basy on the low, but OK in the middle 3rd and 4th strings and it's driving me nuts. My previous peddle is a GT 100 from Boss and the learning curve was quick, go to the Tone Room from Boss who had Proffessional musicians create patches for songs which could be down loaded. Easy campezee. Unfortunately I still have to gig with my Boss pedal cause every time I use the Helix the band members look at me strange like " What the" Now I really want to use the Helix but I am loosing my enthusiasm cause I just can't seem to get the voicing of the sounds close enough. We play mainly 70's Bryan Adams, Eagles, Doobies, Dragon, Santana, Stones, Led Zep, AC/DC etc. Have the Glenn DeLaune patches but looking for individual songs like Run to You with 3 snapshots for Intro, verse and Lead 1 and Lead 2 with 5th harmony. I can create the mechanics of it but not nail the sound. Searched custom tones and no luck. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
