Helix – Synthpads and Tonematches

Synthpads and tonematches

31 presets for firmware 2.21 and above – 13 “synthpads”, which uses the 4 OSC Generator as a backing for playing over (each snapshot triggers a different chord) ; and 18 tonematch presets, which uses exclusive IRs, to reproduce the sound of popular amps not available in the Helix (like the Diezel VH4, Friedman Dirty Shirley, ENGL Savage, Splawn etc.), or recording of amp that I like.

– The “synthpad” presets uses one 4 OSC Generator, and sometimes two of them for for more complex chords, followed by modulation. Those presets are for songs from Steve Vai, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, The Eagles, Santana, Shawn Lane, Genesis and U2, plus two generic ones.

– Included is a chart for correspondence between frequencies and musical notes, and a list of basic chords and corresponding frequencies, so you can customize those presets.

– I will add more presets like these in the future, for other specific songs, as a free bonus for existing customers. However, as the number of presets rise, the price of the pack may rise a little too, so it’s better to get it now 😉

– This pack uses 24 user cabs : 15 for the tonematch presets, 8 from the Big Pack released in 2016, and one of my valhallir.at (http://valhallir.at/en/) custom mix.

But, here’s what they’re meant for on the first place :
Adagio = I carus dream suite my Yngwie Malmsteen
Black star = song of the same name by Malmsteen
Firth of Fifth = the Genesis song
Hotel California = the Eagles song
Lisa Epilogue = Epilogue for Lisa, Shawn Lane
Little wing = the Hendrix song
Love of God = Steve Vai
Marooned = Pink Floyd
Shine on you = Pink Floyd
Song of the wind = the Santana song
Streets + ISHFWILF = two U2 songs
TDR synth lead 1 = improvise what you want
TDR synth lead 2 = idem

Brilliant! Helix appears to be complicated but use on computer and with tech guys like this it makes it fun and less work. keep it up.


This synth pack is interesting. I am searching for a minimoog single not synth sound to use in The Cars’ Just What I Needed. Can this be accomplished with this pack? I have no experience with the synth effects pedals and settings so, while the Helix is powerful I just can’t harness it quite yet.



Hi Jim, the Helix synth is really basic and can’t do authentic minimoog tones. Close enough, maybe, I use many modulation blocks to give the synth a more complex sound…
