Keep looking...;)

 

Actually, it wouldn't surprise me... but as a % of total users, it's likely to be a very small minority.

I recorded violin on this song... no real effects, just used it as a DI / interface.   because it was during the pandemic and we were recording songs remotely....

 

Here I just plugged in the violin with the piezo pickup into the Helix.  I think I EQ'ed it a little bit.   But it was very much DIY....

 

There are around 10 different parts.  It's a fake string quartet: 3 violins + a violin with "octave" strings.  Then there are 2 pizz parts, and some other variations.

I do, but I'm just starting. Got my Helix rack ca a month ago. I've got an NS Design Wav5 violin and do plenty of electronic m. with Ableton Live.

As I said, just startin with Helix but I already find it very useful and convenient.

There are a couple violin players in my area that use the HX Stomp....

As a multi instrumentalist I use my Helix LT for everything. Electrics, acoustics, mandolin, dobro, banjo, etc... etc... If  I could play violin I'd most certainly feed it through the LT.

@kjbllc123 you may want to also post your inquiry to the massive Line 6 Helix Thread in the Digital and Modeling Forum on TheGearPage.net  For some reason I seem to recollect reading posts in the massive thread from at least one violinist using the Helix from several years ago.

You might want to look up John McFee... the outstanding multi-instrumentalist with the Doobie Brothers. He uses a Helix and I am pretty sure it is a hub for everything he plays, which would include his violin/fiddle.

You should check out Alex Price’s presets and Youtube videos. He is a good guitarist and also plays the violin. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to the Helix and makes good presets. In his “big bundle” there are lots of presets made specifically for violin, both electrical and acoustic.
