Questionable HNX performance.

Recommended Posts

Been struggling over the last few months to get HXN to really work for me in my studio. It can be a bit hit and very big miss at times, until today... 

I bought the Friedman amp pack from Fremens presets and finally all the stars aligned and WOW...it sounds just outstanding! 

 

I know this is subjective and totally dependant on your guitar, gear, set up and of course your own ear.. but today this nailed it for me and finally made me realise just how good HXN can be with the right patches and IR's... 

 

Going to buy some of the other amp packs really soon.. once my fingers and ears recover...:)  

 

Thanks Fremen!

I totally agree. I almost always start with one of Fremen's presets, and tweak as needed for a particular song. His stuff keep getting better, along with his custom IRs. I love the 2.30/2.50 update pack, and the new (free) Brit Plexi is outstanding. (I don't do metal so didn't buy any of the new amp packs, but have no doubt they knock it out of the park).

Hey Soundog, with you on that too.. He certainly is getting better and the plexi is great too.

The surprising thing about the new packs at least, is that I never needed to do any post Helix tweaks in waves or anything like that.. and I am sure if and when I get around to it it will only sound even better! (I did use the Ownhammer  Friedman IR's as well but Fremens are right up there too... )

The only slight niggle was when the doubler was added to give stereo. L/R needed to be balanced a little but other than that wow.. 

The Friedman is a bit of a wall of sound and might not be for what you do but your right, when he gets around to the vintages ohhh.. :)
