M Britt Helix Preset Pack 1

The NEW M Britt Helix Preset Pack is a collection of 32 Presets for the Line 6 Helix.  These presets represent most of the basic tones that I would need to get through a gig, with a few options for each one, as well as a few wacky, fun presets with lots of fx.  Most of the favorite food groups are covered, including: blackface cleans, Vox/Matchless cleans and slight breakup, plexi type rhythm and solo tones, and overly processed tones for solos and textural parts.

 

These presets incorporate 14 different IRs from the M Britt Custom IR Pack 1.  In fact, I’m including all 30 of the Custom IR Pack IRs with these presets if you want to do further experimentation.  Taste is subjective, but the goal is to have basic, usable sounds as a base so you can create your own gig-worthy song presets.  I tried not to use any EQ blocks in any of these presets, opting to just use the amp model EQ and give you enough room as possible for future tweaking, simply trying to tailor the cab IR to the amp model for the best possible match.  Of course, you’ll notice that a couple of the cab IRs seem to be my favorites, especially on the Marshall and Vox type presets.

 

You will need the Line 6 Helix Editor software to import these presets individually into your Helix.  And since the Helix platform doesn’t save the IR with the preset, it will be a multi-step process to match the preset to the corresponding IR that I created it with.  Further instructions can be found in the information sheet .pdf.  The sound samples below were recorded direct into ProTools 10 via an Apogee Ensemble interface with no compression, EQ, or processing added.  The Helix XLR main outputs were run straight into the Apogee.  All clips were recorded with my Tom Anderson Cobra with 3 P90 Antiquity pickups, except for a few strat type tones which were recorded using an Xotic XSC strat.  Please excuse the sloppy playing.

    Finally, some presets that make me want to play my Helix! Was not too happy with how hard it is to get Helix to sound great for what I want to hear. MB you have hit it out of the park with these!!! Thanks.

    Presets are fantastic, but what make a huge difference for live use of Helix are the included IRs collection.
    Thank you Mike!

    All I can say is WOW!! The secret sauce is the bundled IR’s. I have spent some $$$ on other presets and frankly most aren’t that great. But what Mike Britt has put together is nothing short of amazing. It’s the best $30 I’ve spent in a long time. If you keep making them, I’ll keep buying them. Thanks Mike

    This is a great set of presets. They all sound great on my Helix floor through a Yamaha DXR10 speaker. You could probably cover all kinds of music other than metal using these. Great if you mainly play covers like me.

    Best investment i ever made for my Helix. This guy know how to dial a tone on anything. Beautiful clean tones and smooth leads. Cant wait for the next batch.

    As above- really good presets.

    I’d love to see a new or updated set which focuses on the models adding in HELIX since 2.3 came out.

    ( clearly the LoneStar model has to be on the list ! )

    I got these for the IRs (Cabinet blends were exactly what I was looking for!) The presets are killer too. I use a variax as my main guitar and needed the presets to do a lot more but I used some of the plexi settings to make a killer gain patch.

    These presets are really outstanding. I use them to play live and they were absolutely good to go with zero tweaking. Am pretty certain I never could have gotten these tones on my own. Ever. Thank you!

    I’ve never sounded better.! As close to a real amp as I have ever heard out of the helix. Outstanding.

    I’ve owned the helix for 3three years! I’ve made some decent tones! These are sooo articulate! Note separation is fantastic! Its what separates the crap I’ve made to these. You could tell a pro made em. Ive learned some things that Ill be able to use on some of my own presets. But if you make another pack ill be sure to purchase them.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge

    I had a Kemper and gad to sell it. I used Michael’s profiles. Had the Helix for 2 days, just downloaded the Helix pack and am blown away just as I was with the Kemper profiles. I do not have to waste any time now fiddling with patches, just get down and play as these patches match my style of playing and dont need any tweaking. Thanks for a great product well worth the bucks..
