LA Studio Comp (Teletronix® LA-2A®)

LA Studio Comp, the Helix model of a Teletronix® LA-2A®

For over 50 years the Teletronix LA-2A has been revered for its smooth, natural, musical compression. WIth its unique tube-driven electro-optical attenuator system that allows instantaneous gain reduction with no increase in harmonic distortion, the LA-2A massages signals like no other compressor ever made.

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....

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.

Killer Cleans

I just got my strat upgraded with Duncan SSL-1 pickups, and this patch is just amazing for it. Beautiful cleans and some optional Tube Screamer and Tape Echo to get you going.

Slayer - Angel of Death

You know what this is. I used the Badonk amp model to give the sound the necessary mids and chunk.

Rockerverb

New for Helix 3.1, the Rockerveb is a very cool and versatile amp for rock n roll. Try this tone in place of a Marshall for a crunchier, fatter tone.

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.

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).
