Wow, as a long time Queensryche fan, you really nailed it! Both the playing and the tones. Nice work, Glenn!

Are you playing with a wedge in the room to get that sustain/feedback?

Hey Glenn, 4 years ago I was the guitar tech for Geoff Tate's Queensryche on the 25th anniv for Mindcrime after I left Line 6. Encore set had the hits from Empire. For Robert Sarzo's rig I programmed 4 patches for the whole set on the HD500 (Helix was in dev then), delivered through 2 DT50s. Kelly Gray's rig, he programmed it on a laptop using Waves Gtr feeding into 2 412 Acoustic halfstacks. Live it was dead on to the record. After living the tones every night it's ingrained in me. Nice job, pretty close! 

 

I actually just pulled up some of my fave patches for the POD HD and converting them over to the Helix. You're new library here inspired me to convert these now. Thx!

Hey andyz - Does that mean you will share them on custom tone with us? Remember the first time you heard I Don't Believe In Love...https://youtu.be/2c3g6tTYoxM

 

And if you want a good head shaking memory try this. 

 

What a long strange trip it's been :P

Thank you for the kind words guys.

That guitar has a sustainer system. Same thing they used on the album. Jay Y from Styx and Neal Shon from Journey (just to name a few) have been using that for a very long time. That Jackson I'm playing in the video has one. It's a pretty cool effect, used sparingly!!! That being said, if you run this patch through a wedge at gig volume you will get a similar effect depending how loud you are and your proximity to the speaker.

Yep ole ION... Hard to believe it was 18 years ago that all started! 

Good to see you're taking it to the next level Glenn! Still sounding great!

Things are good! Just spending more time in the studio now writing and trying to make records for others more than anything else.

I'm still here lurking, but don't post much...

AZ_Guitar, I'll surely try to remember to. Want to make sure they translate ok. I'd probably end up using a 3rd party IR as well, but may add a cab additionally.

Has anyone tried these?

 

I found there's a big difference between the sound in the demos and the patches that you actually end up with. While they're not bad sounding it can be a bit misleading. Just be careful! :D
