Simple Delay (Line 6ยฎ Original)

Simple Delay, the Helix model of a Line 6ยฎ Original

The Simple Delay is really kind of as the name suggests, a basic digital delay. There are stereo and mono versions of this delay available.

The time parameter can be toggled to either be note-based or time based. For example, 800ms vs 1/4 note sync.

The scale parameter is used when in stereo mode. It controls the stereo feedback of the right signal vs the left signal. The left signal is the "master" and can be thought of as the 100% level. The scale is a percentage of that amount. So at a 50% setting, you are getting half of the delay in the right hand side signal. This makes the stereo sound stage sound more alive and "3D" in headphones or stereo speaker setup.

The patch has three presets which are for switching sounds while soloing. The first preset is a light overdrive, the second light overdrive plus echo, and the third light overdrive plus distortion. See the example below for a soloing example. I also added a noise gate to help reduce the noise.

Legacy Llama

Legendary Drive and The Alpaca Rouge into a HiWatt in stereo. Fat, loose OD sounds without getting flubby. Works well with humbuckers. You may have to boost the drive settings if using single coils.

Heavy Metal (Takin' a Ride) by Don Felder

This patch generates the beginning keyboard sound by using three 3-Note Generators, delay, overdrive and chorus as well as the verse delay using a momentary stomp footswitch. There are a couple ways to start the song. Check out the video at the bottom of this page.Here's how I do it.Start the Organ stomp (wait at least 10 seconds for minimum Attack time). You can change the Attack time of each 3-Note Generator for quicker intro.Have the drummer do a four beat count in. On 4, turn off the Organ (the delay will keep it ringing for another beat)Immediately step on the Verse Delay and on 1 of the next bar play the D->E chords and one chug on the open E chord.Release the Verse Delay (it will trail) and keep chugging.Repeat steps 4-5 for each bar.I put a 1-Switch Looper at the end  so you can record the main riff to solo over. If you do use it, I recommend using the Solo Dly for the first D->E so you have time to hit the looper, turn off the Solo Dly (it will trail) then use the Verse Delay for the rest of the rhythm.It uses the same Fulltone OCD and Deluxe Reverb as Felders rig rundown on YouTube. Enjoy.

Built this patch with a little help from my friends. Pretty straightforward. I want to try to achieve a little more of tha ADT - which provides a cool delay/leslie effect. Hope you enjoy, as always, I'm very open to feedback and comments. The video is from my Stems practice sessions.
