...for me anyway.
As you may or may not have noticed from some AB tests I did, I just cannot get a workable sound out of the Helix.
Any overdrive tones are just dry and grainy and overly gained, clean is too muddy and overly gained, in fact everything sounds muddy on it.
Even getting just a basic JCM 800 tone with some crunch and bite is impossible. I just done get it.
Now im fully willing to admit it’s user error so what am I doing wrong? I have friends that sound amazing out of it but I sound like shit. Kemper, and Axe Fx I have no problem. This is using hardware and native, fiddling with input/output settings makes no difference to the quality of tones I get.
I’m not saying this to slag Helix off by the way, I’m saying it because I’d love it to work for me, because everything else about it is amazing.
So do the amps just sound bad or am I just utterly useless?
