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, your purchase today is good for all future updates (and I add new presets often). Check the first page of the .pdf included with your download for a Google Drive link 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 5-8 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.


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

     *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'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.
