Helix – Big pack

Helix “Big Pack” – 187 presets

Price: 49 euros

My main presets pack for the Line6 Helix (2.01 firmware and above). Originally it had 175 presets covering many genres (pop, rock, fusion, metal…), and with the bonus folder, which has updated and new presets for Pink Floyd songs, there’s now a total of 187 presets. This package also has 25 user IRs.

The general volume of my presets is intended to be on par with the stock presets, or a little quieter. I wanted to avoid the risks of digital clipping, which I hear on many presets I downloaded from Custom Tone.

My presets are first and foremost a very big collection of amp/cab tones, effects are a bonus. There’s also a few, like the ambiant ones, U2 or Pink Floyd presets etc in which the effects settings are equally important. Like my presets for Axe-Fx and AmpliFire, they are intended to cover various genres, from classic rock to metal through pop and fusion. Some of them uses snapshots, again, check the .xls file for details.

I like my cleans without any hair, and quite compressed. Compressor is an important element in my “Cln xxx” presets. It can of course be removed ; on many presets, the sound will then be a little dirtier, on the edge of breakup.

Also included is a collection of metal presets meant to be used for recording, so they’re brighter than what I normally use. I used a DI track from one metal song I recorded to tweak them. However they probably have a little more bass than needed but I like that for playing with them. In a mix, I’ll cut the lows some more.

IRs

You need to put the user IRs in the right places – “081 LX TDR Ultraclean.wav” goes to user spot 081, etc.

Watch this video for the easiest procedure : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVUNLwjUbrQ

My presets have been tweaked with these IRs, they won’t sound like intended if you don’t load them. All are custom creations made with various free sources, or no source at all, and various techniques like tone matching.

Of course, you can try to swap them with your favorite third party cabs, this will probably work if you choose similar cabs (like, a V30 4×12 IR instead of my HG (high gain) cabs, G12M and the like instead of my Marshall cabs etc… Experiment !)

To make things simpler for most Helix users, I didn’t put my user IRs at the beginning of the cab bank, but from 074 to 098.

Note : the acoustic sim IRs are way quieter than the others, it’s their nature, and I boosted the level from the IR block accordingly. Be careful if you try other IRs with the Acoustic Sim presets, lower the IR block volume first !

Similarly, the volume of the IR block in the “Cln” presets is at -12 instead of -18 because for some amps, with the very low gain settings, the channel volume at 10 wasn’t enough to compensate.

Legal stuff : this is a digital download. No refund even in case of buying by mistake. After purchase, the files will be available in the “Purchase history” section of my website

These files are in a .zip compressed archive, which is a standard format. PC users can use Winrar, Winzip or 7zip to extract them. Popular tools for MAC users are Stuffit Expander, Unrar x or The Unarchiver. Most computers already have tools for that, and most of these applications are free.

I don’t have a purchase history, here but i’ve already purchase the big pack that you’ve send me a link to download the patches. How can i acess the update ?

I purchased the Big Pack prior to you updating the website. I no longer have the email link that you sent me and my purchase history only shows the add on pack and synth pads that I purchased recently. How do I redownload the Big Pack to get the added Floyd patches? specracer986@gmail.com

Fremen,

I purchased the Big Pack when you first released it. And I must say, it is truly fantastic. I came here to purchase the add-on and discovered that you made an addition to the Big Pack. Sir, how do I get the additional presets that you added to the Big Pack? My email address is:

mjross50@msn.com

Thanks for your time,

Mj

Hello,
what about using these presets only with Helix Native? Are there any restrictions, problems etc?
Thanks.
Martin

They work fine in Native, except for one thing, Native doesn’t have the snapshots feature yet. I have a few presets with multiple snapshots, only the default snapshot is accessible with them. Snapshots will be added to Native in a coming firmware.
