Apr 20th, 2020, 07:30
Line 6 was one of the leading innovators in the area of guitar amp & FX modelingâ€”their POD hardware modeler set the standard early on and was widely used for many years. The company's latest modeling hardware and software is Helix, which emulates amps, cabs, mics, and effects, utilizing the latest high-definition modeling techniques. Matt Vanacoro's new course "Helix Explored: The Pedalboard and Plugin" explores both the hardware unit and the software. Matt provides a thorough tour of the pedalboard, including basic background on the importance of gain staging and tips to insure the best sound. He goes into detail on both the hardware unit and the HX Edit app interface, showing you how to create realistic tones without over-taxing the unit's CPU power. Videos include working with blocks, setting up the wah/volume pedal, using the built-in looper, creating setlists and templates, and more! Helix may seem fairly complex at first, but the course should provide a solid handle on how to get the most out of this flexible and powerful bit of kit.
