Hi everyone,<br /> <br /> I finally got a Helix to play around with. I was busy putting a new track together for my new album and thought it might make a nice demo to show some of the tones. I recorded the Helix directly into the desk.<br /> <br /> The drummer, Larry Rose and I put the basic structure together and I added the guitars.<br /> <br /> I used the Les Paul playing with my Plexi patch and the Strat using my Hiwatt patch. I used the Les Paul in the "chorus" parts of the song with the Strat playing the "verse" parts.<br /> <br /> The first verse is completely clean and the second is slightly more driven. I thought that the Strat worked well with this patch.<br /> <br /> The only post processing that I carried out was a bit of noise reduction on my Strat parts as my Strat is quite a noisy guitar.<br /> <br /> There is also a chorused clean Les Paul playing through the whole track. For this part I used my Jazz Rivet patch.<br /> <br /> I also decided to track the bass through the Helix and used my G Cougar 800 patch.<br /> <br /> Overall I'm loving this unit. I'm also busy putting together my first video in the series on the Helix.<br /> <br /> Hope you enjoy...<br /> <br /> Cheers,<br /> <br /> Peter.<br />

Sounds great. Has some grit to it but not fizzy! Sounds like it responds well to your playing too.

Sounds really nice. Love the clean strat tone, but you did a nice job on the OD tones as well. It sounds real amp-like.

I've always been a fan of Line6's stuff for recording. I haven't heard anything live that bowls me over though.

I agree, very amp-like on the clean and semi-clean tones. Nice sound as usual.

Thanks guys,<br /> <br /> Tyrone, I felt the same way as you about the live tones but after I've spent some time with it, I've been really impressed. <br /> <br /> I've just uploaded my first demo video of the Helix. It's in the "misc" section.<br /> <br /> I've covered a few amps.<br /> <br /> Cheers,<br /> <br /> Peter.

Thanks guys.<br /> <br /> I've since put together the video for that track. We did video all the recordings, I just had to edit them together.<br /> <br /> I'll be uploading soon. Cheers,<br /> <br /> Peter.

Thanks Chris. I have put the video together and uploaded on YouTube. I've been accused of spamming this forum with my videos so I haven't put it up here for viewing.<br /> <br /> If you send me a private message I'll send you the link. <br /> <br /> Cheers<br /> <br /> Peter.

Sounds great but very processed. Would be a great tool if that's what you're looking to do with it.
