Mike Ness Tone

This is the HX Stomp version of this tone - there's also a version for the Helix available here by selecting the Helix as your device. This is a very good approximation of Mike Ness's Tone on the Social Distortion albums. The recipe is iconic - a dirt pedal into a Bassman head, then into Marshall cabinets. The sample clip was played on a legit Les Paul with P90 pickups - you need this to get the real deal.

Green Day Dookie Tone

This stereo tone replicates Billie Joe's tone on Green Day's Dookie album pretty well. There's a compressor and boost available for a little extra oomph, but they're off by default because they're not really needed to get the album tone. I used a Les Paul to record the Soundcloud demo, you may want to try a Strat or P90 guitar for a little extra high end.

Silence

This utility patch is intended to reduce the hum and hiss of your noisy high gain amp. It is composed of 2 noise gates, one for your guitar and another for the amp's FX loop. The patch needs to run in the "4 Cable Method" to work properly. I use this patch to tame the hiss on my Mesa Boogie Mini Rectifier. It's a great amp but has a bit of hiss due to the high gain nature of the amp. By putting a noise gate in your amp's effects loop, you are mostly getting rid of any annoying hiss or hum that is in the amp's preamp section.

DTS Rectified

HX Stomp as Input for Helix Native

This utility patch is used for running an HX Stomp into a Mac or PC for using it as an interface to Helix Native. In your DAW, set the input to input 5 on the HX Stomp and run this patch. Turn on monitoring in the DAW, and now you will only hear Helix Native in your headphones or speakers.

Slash Mod 2204

Most of the Slash patches I get all sound thin and frankly a little weird. He has a very straightforward tone. I tried to capture the spirit of his tone here. It's a bit fuzzy but I think it works well in a mix or for some headphone soloing. Sorry for the horrible soloing in my SoundCloud demo. My 6 year old thinks I sound great....

Guitar Goes Bass

Who needs a bass player anyway? Not you if you've got this patch. Made it with a simple SG, and now I sound like a thundering bass god. Now you can too.
