    Nuno - a lot more going on than just high gain and trebly pickups
    Alex Lifeson - something like his tone on The Pass
    Satriani - his tone on the FIABD album. Never heard anyone nail this
    Vai - his tone with DLR, ( Hot dog and a shake is a good example)
    George Lynch - again, not just high gain. His style plays a great part, but specifically his tone on the Back for the Attack album
    John Norum on The Final Countdown/Rock the Night


    I'd have a look at Jason Sadites 'dialling in' series. I thought his Nuno tone was very close. As did my son, who's a bit of a fanboy

    @rossyamaha - will you be making this available for the unit i.e. officially as Artist Patches or sharing them on a Line6 Patch site?

    Wow. You guys are getting in some that I would've mentioned

    Some good cleans - Nile Rodgers has been mentioned but an EJ effected Clean and Andy Summers (Walking on the Moon, EBYTake). A generic Pat Metheny would be nice like on 'James' i.e. chorused jazz tone

    Nice to see Lukather here and great choice on the tone from Fahrenheit or his big ballad tone on 'I'll be over you'
    Dann Huff - from the first Giant album - opening for 'I'm a Believer' - probably not too dissimilar to Lukather.

    Edie Brickell's 'What I want' and the wonderful auto-wah'd solo sound

    Stones - 'Start me up

    Lindsey Buckingham's solo tone on 'Big love'

    A generic Rockabilly tone - ? Brian Setzer

    Boys of Summer - Mike Campbell low gain

    Robben Ford's 80's lead tone from the tracks 'Talk to your Daughter' & 'Help the Poor'

    Knopfler on Sultans

    Boston intelligent harmonies
    Thin Lizzy intelligent harmonies

    Gary Moore - 'Parisienne' & 'Still got the Blues'

    Santana - 'Europa live' or 'Smooth'

    He's doing well for Wolves in the prem at the moment too, as much as it hurts to admit it as a Baggie

    And if there's anything good about me, I'm the only one who knows

    I've watched a bunch of people on youtube doing sound like Andy Summers/ The Police and they seem to get it very wrong  so I'd +1 to that and the What I Want sound.

    And I'd +1 whoever said The Stooges. Apart from irony of using something very hi tech to sound like something made  using rusty oil drums it is one of those oddly elusive sounds.  I think there is an association with modelers and rather slick/ highly produced sounds so anything very lo fi ( maybe some Hound Dog Taylor as well)to my mind would be a better/ more interesting demonstration of what the Helix can do. 

    Not that I have a Helix, just that it would be interesting and that Ross should sweat a little...

    It does indeed. Both of them. I actually prefer them both to the originals. Which I have. 

    I play guitar and take photos of stuff. I also like beans on toast.

    Some awesome suggestions here. Will need to do some homework for a bunch but looking forward to this. Can't promise I'll get them all done but will do what I can.

    Nice! so I could probably nail a Doug Martsch/Built To Spill tone 2 x EP Boosters at different gain stages, SP comp, DMM, maybe a Rat all going through a 64’ Bassman Head & Cab

    I posted this in the helix thread, but realise I got that wrong!

    if you could have a bash at this patch,already on helix but not the stomp, I would be really greatful, I really don't know which to go for, I think a full helix is a bit much, but either an 'lt' or stomp would be ideal....



    At at the start of the vid some effects are shown I think, ducked delay etc

    thanks!

    .......just thought, if it is'nt the done thing to copy someone's patch then please delete, in reality I will probably buy some of his patches anyway, supporting his effort is really important I think.

    Holdsworth UD delay patches and if you can get them the lead sounds from the Ud stomps
    I would love to change my username, but I fully understand the T&C's (it was an old band nickname). So please feel free to call me Dave.

    Yes, these please ( they’re on the old yamaha magic stomp so I can’t see why it couldn’t be possible ). Also , the lead 1 and lead 2 amps from the Yamaha DG amps to get his lead sound

  • Won't playing technique and guitar choice play a big part in all this?

    Just looking at the names requested, some of these guys are technical monsters. 

    Its like those guys that played through Jimi henrixs setup and found it totally unusable. The sounds comes from more than the gear.

    I'll get back in my box now
    The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a fluctuation in pitch. The origin of this nonstandard usage of the term by electric guitarists is attributed to Leo Fender, who also used the term “vibrato” to refer to what is really a tremolo effect.

    Yep I agree, the request for Nile Rodgers tone baffles me. Any bog standard clean tone will do the job. The uniqueness of Nile’s tone is the way he strikes the guitar strings with the pick.

    I somewhat agree that Nile has a pretty standard Strat rhythm tone, although I probably needed to hear him sound check to fully appreciate how true that is.  The weird thing is how playing that sounds generic on its own turns numinous in a band mix.  I've heard any number of people cover his stuff, some of them very good players in very good bands, and they never seem to get very close.  I can understand why people think his tone must be sprinkled with magic dust, even if it's not.

    But one of the good things about an "artist tone" selection, if well done, is it will highlight where the gear stops and the artist starts.  If you want to sound like Joe Guitarhero and someone has created a patch that allows a good player to do just that, when you get that patch and sound nothing like him you'll know it's not about getting a different dirt pedal or using different settings, you need work on your technique.
