At the request of many, I've created the Violin Preset Library. This bundle contains all of (and nothing else but) the acoustic and electric violin presets found in my Complete Preset Library. This is the answer to those who wanted to purchase only my violin presets at a lower cost. Just like the original library, I'm constantly adding new presets to it. With this purchase, you'll get access to a Google Drive folder (find the link to it in the included .pdf) that'll serve as my way of delivering the free updates to you. These are the same presets that I personally use live and they represent a few year's worth of building and tuning and testing with live performance. 


These presets are designed on the HX Stomp for use in stomp switch mode, but they will work across all of the Helix family units (except for HX Effects due to the amp blocks). I do not use snapshots on the original HX Stomp because it is so limiting. If you’d like to create custom snapshots on each preset, it should be fairly easy - create a combination of the 5 stomps switches and save it to snapshot 1. Repeat the process for as many snapshots as you’d like. For many supporters of this library who use one of the larger Helix units (LT, floor, rack), you’ll find that these presets will cover your basic tones. I know that a lot of people like to take them and use them as the foundation for building their own custom presets around.


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 (located in the .pdf). 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 8 blocks, and as such will work on all of the following products:
HX Stomp

HX Stomp XL

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've specified which presets were made for acoustic and which for electric violins but don’t take this as law. For example, the acoustic violin presets probably sound fine with electric violin and vice versa. Try out everything with your own instruments. Tweak them and make them your own. These presets can serve as the foundation for building your own library.
