Kinky Boost (Xoticยฎ EP Booster)

Kinky Boost, the Helix model of a Xoticยฎ EP Booster

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.

What do the tones of renowned guitarist such as Jimmy Page, EVH and Eric Johnson have in common? They all used the legendary echo machine EP-3 as a pre-amp. Weโ€™ve captured that magic in the Xotic Effects pedalboard staple, EP Booster.

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.

Helix Hour JCM800

A nice sounding 3 snapshot preset, with JCM 800, killer lead with dimed mids 10 band EQ. Rhythm, Dirty and Lead. Lead snapshot cuts like a knife. More presets coming soon. Shamelessly borrowed from CustomTone.com to have a few patches available for Pod Go launch.

Soldano

My take on Soldano amp with 3 gain stage. The first is the amp drive only (FS1), the second a Boost (FS2) and the third a TS style OD (FS4) - Sounds perfect with a Gibson ES-335, huge tone with tamed low ends and OD that cuts though the mix.

My Dumble

My attempt at recreating a Dumble sound with Helix.  Uses dual cabs for extra grind. Footswitch on Kinky Boost and Stereo Delay (Dual Delay).

Angus Young

It's a bit more juiced than Angus's tone on the albums, but it's a great  AC/DC tone.  Try to use mild PAF-type humbuckers to get close to his tone. Long live ACDC!

This patch contains 8 snapshots (Clean, Rhythm, Lead, Lead+Octaver, Swells, Delay 1/4, Delay 8 dotted, Ambiet) and also 10 stomps (3 drives, 3 reverbs, 2 delays, octaver, chorus) so you can choose what better fits to your live performance.

Revv Gen Red

This is the same patch made by Jorge but for the HX Stomp, I used my app (https://sensationnel-gerard-26922.herokuapp.com/) to visualize the parameters and recreated the patch. The original had two cabs in parallel but I had to sacrifice one and use an amp+cab block instead. I really like this one.

On the Mark

A nice fat clean tone using the Mark IV Rhythm channel. There's a second snapshot that's dirtier as well, but I'm not 100% happy with it.
