The Complete Preset Library is a bit of everything! This is a massive folder of 50+ presets that I'm constantly making updates to with new tones and samples of some of my other preset packs. These are the same presets that I personally use live and they represent over a year's worth of building and tuning and testing with live performance. There's something in here for everyone. Scroll down and click on "Included Files" for a comprehensive list of every preset included in this sample pack.

 

My presets are designed on the HX Stomp, but they will work across all of the Helix family units, except for HX Effects. A lot of people with the larger units that purchase my preset library end up taking the base amp/cab tones and building their own presets around them. The finely tuned amp tones are what the focus of this library is.

 

My process:

All of my presets are finely tuned for live use through a single FRFR speaker or a large sound system. Over the course of 5 months spent performing in the theater on a large cruise ship, I spent a lot of time perfecting these amp tones. I went into the gig with a lot of existing presets, but I also built some new ones onboard. I frequently took the my rig to an empty venue on this ship and as I designed new presets, I would tune them through a large JBL FRFR speaker at performance volume. When they were ready for live performance, I took them to the main theater and I tested them over the course of literally 100's of performances with my 8-piece band. I made many small adjustments over the course of this 5-month contract to optimize these presets for performance at the highest level. Near the end of the contract, I took the Helix up to the FOH desk and again made some refinements.

 

As a result, these presets are truly some of the best out there. I’ve done my fair share of purchasing presets from well known makers, but I didn’t get the impression that their process was this rigorous. With that said, you probably do not own the same guitar as I do and might not be playing through the same sound system. Take these presets as a template and follow your ear. Make minor adjustments as needed and build them to suit your playing style, instruments, and whatever platform you’re amplifying the Helix with.

 

Remember, this folder is a work in progress. I am always adding new sounds and improving old ones. With the purchase of this preset library, you will recieve a Google Drive link. If at any time you would like an update, you can go there to download the latest files. Your purchase is good for all future updates.

 

Each of these presets are limited to a maximum of 6 blocks, and as such will work on all of the following products:
HX Stomp

Helix LT

Helix Floor

Helix Rack

Helix Native

     Native users - please note that these presets are set up in stompswitch mode and do not contain snapshot data. Native is set up to prefer snapshot mode, but you can still easily access the "stompswitches" through MIDI commands.

    I have stated specifically if the preset was made with a humbucker-equipped guitar or one with single coils but don’t take this as law. For example, the flatwound bass presets probably sound fine with roundwound strings too. Try out everything with your own instruments. Tweak them and make them your own. You'll find that these presets can serve as the foundation for building your own unique library.
