Mod/Chorus Echo (Line 6® Original)

Mod/Chorus Echo, the Helix model of a Line 6® Original


Glam PRS

A PRS Archon delivers juicy 80's Sunset Strip tones. The Mod/Stereo Chorus is on by default, but the Double Take is waiting for a brave soul to enable it.

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.

MM Blues pack

There are 4 snapshots, which covers a lot : 1. "Clean" - slightly compressed, sparky bluesy tone which sounds very nice on neck pickup and is reactive to playing dynamic. 2. "Gritty", same as previous just with some more compression. 3. "Crunch" , tight distorted sound with sufficient clarity, good for range of styles from blues, rock to hard rock, 4. "Lead", singing distorted lead sound with lot of sustain but also with sufficient clarity, which is not too aggressive and cuts nicely through the mix. Sounds nice either on humbuckers or single coil pups, (tested on low, mid and high resistance pups ranging from 7.5 K to 15 K). You can find examples of my patches on the channel youtube.comSnapshot 2 and  here:  youtu.be

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.
