Heir Apparent (Analogman Prince of Tone)

Heir Apparent, the Helix model of a Analogman Prince of Tone

Recorded using a Les Paul with Burstbucker pickups into a Twin Reverb model with the normal input. The overdrive pedal and amp are set at default settings. A touch of reverb added for depth.

The Prince of Tone is the same as half of the King of Tone, with an external MODE switch standard. It is the same as the KOT with HIGHER GAIN option, so you can use the full range of the DRIVE knob and it has a little more drive at the top than a normal gain KOT. The DISTORTION mode is improved though, for a louder, stronger distortion sound.

Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

This is a slightly altered version of josepqr's patch on Custom Tone.To get the Gilmour tone, you need a single coil pickup, preferably a Strat.The patch has 3 snapshots, so make sure you cycle through them to get the range of tones in the preset.

Double Worship

This patch is based on a Fender Twin, with some tremolo for modulation, a couple delay settings, and reverb. The drive section uses the Heir Apparent. Snapshot 1 is clean, SS 2 is drive and SS 3 engages the trem.

Fullerton Flyboard

This patch was provided to me by my teacher Josh Skaja. It's an all-purpose patch that you can use for performing a number of pop songs. Two distortion pedals allows for some great gain staging. The modulation blocks are really versatile as well.  In this YouTube video I'm using it with the delay and Dimension blocks to play Message in a Bottle. I've also used it for Beat It and Call me Maybe.Josh's main course is called The System and I can't recommend it enough. You can it out here http:/thesystem.rocks

Tele Boogie

I really like the Mesa Lone Star amps, but I didn't really care for the stock Helix patches featuring the amp. This tone has 3 snapshots, clean, overdriven and dirty. I used my trusty Telecaster to create the patch and Soundcloud sample below.I'm re-discovering the Double Take model on Helix, which is great for headphones, it gives the sound better space and ambience. If you're going to an amp or recording, you may want to turn this effect off.The input gate is set high because my Tele is a bit noisy. If you have humbuckers or noiseless pickups, set it to taste.

Thrice Dustin Kensrue

These are a few settings that I think are close to Dustin Kensrue from Thrice's current setup. I've heard him say on Twitter that he likes using the Double Amp model and Minotaur and messing with gain settings and snapshots for different tones. I decided to use the Heir Apparent instead for a little more gain. SS1 is a cleanish, modulated tone, SS2 is probably the more used high-gain setting, and SS3 is a modulated sound a la the intro of the song Hurricane.
