Category: SKU: HST-004

Description

This demo is for the Acoustic Helix patch. The HX Stomp patch contains the same base elements – see below for exactly what is included in the HX Stomp version.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  1. UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE: Please upgrade the firmware on your HX Stomp and the HX Edit software from Line 6 to the latest before installing this patch. Even if your HX Stomp is up to date, the ‘HX Edit’ app needs to be updated as well. If you get an error importing a patch, the problem is most likely outdated firmware on your HX Stomp/HX Edit.
  2. IR CAB READY (BUT NOT INCLUDED): This download includes an ‘IR-ready’ patch that includes an IR block. There are no IR’s included with this patch, but if you’d like to try out some of our incredible Acoustic IR packs, the IR-Ready patch is perfect – just load up an acoustic IR in the IR block.
  3. MEANT FOR ACOUSTIC GUITARS: This patch is designed to be used with an acoustic guitar with pickups installed (it’s not meant to simulate an acoustic with the use of an electric guitar).

USAGE

This patch can is designed to be used in ‘stompbox’ mode – snapshots are not set up.

REVERBS & DELAYS

Delay: The dotted 8th note delay is mapped to FS 1, and can be used for rhythmic delay (think Phil Wickham). There is a quarter note delay in the patch as well – this can be either set to be always on (or mapped to turn on with the dotted 8th delay), or set to an external footswitch.

Reverb: For Reverbs, you have a subtle plate verb that is always on (you can alternatively map this to an external switch), and a large modulated verb available via Footswitch 2. The Big/Mod verb is the Glitz reverb, and it sounds pretty huge. It will work well for more intimate songs where you want to fill up a lot of space. If you’re in a larger band setting and are a rhythm acoustic player, this will make your guitar disappear in the mix, so use with caution.

EQ: The EQ at the is meant to be always on, and it adds some life and character to most acoustic guitars. You may want to adjust this EQ setting for your guitar.
