Divided By 13 FTR

Complete Preset / All-Purpose Rock Tone
Click here for the preset walkthrough video

I hope you dig this preset! This is a sample I’ve created to introduce how I like to program Helix/HX Stomp presets. In total, there are 22 different parameter changes in addition to the normal bypass functions of each foot switch in this preset. This creates an extremely versatile preset and lets you get the absolute most out of the HX Stomp. All of the footswitches in the All-In-One presets are interactive, meaning that often times they will be changing parameters across the entire preset at the same time as they’re engaging a new effect. It’s like snapshot mode, but better because instead of only having a few snapshots per preset, now you can combine different combinations of foot switches 1-5 to get over 25 different combinations. 

The Divided By 13 FTR is a bit like if a Marshall Plexi and a Vox AC30 had a child. Click on "Detailed notes on how the footswitches work" to the right for more info on the entire preset.

What you're getting:

- Two presets

     - EGS_DividedBy13.hlx (all-purpose rock preset for single coils)

     - EGH_DividedBy13.hlx (all-purpose rock preset for humbuckers)

- A detailed guide on best practices for setting up your Helix device
- FAQ and troubleshooting guide

“Complete preset” means that this preset is designed to cover the role of your entire rig. All you need is your guitar and your Helix device since this preset will cover all your needs for amp simulation, overdrive tones, chorus/vibrato, spring reverb, and delay. The presets in this bundle have been meticulously dialed in and tested for live performance with a full band. Use it on your HX Stomp for a compact, simple solution for going direct to a PA system or FRFR speaker, or take these 8 blocks and build your own custom preset around it on the larger Helix devices.

Each of these presets are limited to a maximum of 8 blocks, and as such will work on all of the following products:

HX Stomp

Helix LT

Helix Floor

Helix Rack

Helix Native

     *Helix Native users please note that all of my presets exist in stompswitch mode. Helix Native is set up to prefer snapshots, however you can use these presets in stompswitch mode just fine. Check out the Helix Native manual pages 14 & 15 for information on loading these presets in HC (hardware compatibility) mode. When prompted, make sure you select HX Stomp XL as the original device since that is what I create these presets on.

  • I tune each of my presets through different front of house systems and studio monitors to ensure they perform consistently across whatever medium you'll be using. I proof them in rehearsal and during loud live performances. I think you'll find that they cut through the mix well and are incredibly versatile on account of how they're designed in footswitch mode. With that said, you probably do not own the same guitar as I do and might not be playing through the same sound system. You are completely entitled to make minor adjustments as needed! Actually, you should expect to make a few small adjustments so that these presets may better suit your playing style, instruments, and whatever platform you’re amplifying the Helix through.

    Trust your ear. If it sounds good and cuts well in a band mix, then it is good.
