Looking for presets

Recommended Posts

Hi, I bought my Helix a week ago and am still exploring the presets and other features. I have downloaded a few patches from customtone but have been mostly disappointed because I can’t find the ones I really want.  I was hoping someone here could help me out. A partial wish list includes:

James Bond 007 theme

Johnny Rivers Secret Agent Man

Mark Knopfler Money For Nothing, Brothers In Arms, etc

Santo & Johnny Sleepwalk

Buffalo Springfield For What Its Worth

Duane Eddy everything

Lonnie Mack Memphis

Hank Marvin everything

Some really good surf tone with a true drippy reverb

 

Any help finding a source for these would be appreciated.

Why not just take the time and build your own?  It falls under the category of "teach a man to fish...".  You could probably do that quicker than trying to find one.

You have at least "$$$ for nothing" in the factory's presets. you'll certainly have to adjust it but it''ll be a great base

You will forever be disappointed trying to use patches created by someone else, with a different rig, monitoring set-up, guitar, etc. etc....way too many variables.

Thanks Dragon. Yes that’s on the list but I have never used a pedal before and my attempts so far have been frustrating.

Watch some Helix-specific YouTube tutorials,  particularly a guy named Jason Sadites. If you're completely new to modeling, trying to guess your way through it tends to be rather unsatisfying, and you won't gain much insight into how the unit works by using ready-made presets. There's a learning curve at the beginning... everybody goes through it.

And look for the "How To Create A Great Sounding Tone" Videos. There are a bunch but there are a lot of other things as well. And remember, despite the wealth of good knowledge he has, his ways of doing things are not the only ways. They are a great place to start.
