the_trooper_emi Posted December 28, 2017 Share Posted December 28, 2017 Hello everyone I downloaded Helix Native to try it out. Two days later I still can't make it sound good! My biggest issue is that it sounds very muffled, like you're playing with blankets over the box. I've tried different cabinets, combinations, mics, amps, reverbs... I just can't get it to sound like it's in the same room with me. Here is a comparison I did: https://vocaroo.com/i/s1NubH3LoyOF First clip is my free VSTs and IRs, second one is factory preset "Brit 2204", and the third one is my attempt. First one sounds like there's and amp in the room, other two sound like I'm listening my upstairs neighbor playing. I'm attaching my preset so you can take a look, what am I doing wrong? Or am I going the wrong way about it? I saw Glenn from SpectreSoundStudios explaining how he records with box covered up. Is that what's going on here? Is Helix native geared towards recording and sounding good in the mix? My second issue is sustain, I can't get a low gain long sustain to work. Again, this is something I'm able to get with free VSTs but struggle with Helix. Again, here are two clips: https://vocaroo.com/i/s1Q3nT5sdrqe First one is my free VSTs long sustain one, the second one is Helix. I know I can do it with compression (I have it on one block in my preset), but all compressors that Helix offers seem to, besides adding sustain, kill the character of the sound, they just dull it somehow. Any help here, am I using the compressor the wrong way? Thanks in advance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
