Description

NOTE: This demo is of version 1.0 of the this patch. See below to see what updates we’ve made to this patch.

A MATCHLESS DC30 HX STOMP PATCH PERFECTLY SUITED FOR MODERN WORSHIP MUSIC

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 If you get an error importing a patch, the problem is most likely outdated firmware on your HX Stomp/HX Edit.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. REVERBS: The 2.6 Firmware update changed the mix levels of the new (HX) reverbs. This patch accounts for those changes, so if you are not updated to 2.6 or later on your HX Stomp, the reverbs will not sound right.

3. IR CAB INCLUDED: This download includes premium IRs from Tone Junkie. We matched these specific IRs to this amp, but feel free to experiment with other IR’s for different tonal options. We’ve also included a stock cab version of the patch, but we urge to try the IR – it really does sound better – and it’s included for free :).

Here are the specific IR included, and their location in our HX Stomp:

  • TJ 32 MATCH 30 R121+906 (BOTTOM ROW) . In our Helix, it’s in IR slot 32 (this will always correspond with the number after ‘TJ’ in the file name).

HOW TO IMPORT THIS PATCH AND IR

  1. Connect your HX Stomp to your computer using a USB Cable
  2. Download and instal the ‘HX Edit’ app from Line 6
  3. In the ‘HX Edit’ app, drag and drop the patch into a slot in the ‘PRESETS’ column
  4. To import an IR, switch to the ‘IMPULSES’ column (next to the PRESETS column), and drag & drop the IR into the appropriate slot (see note above). The image below shows the specific IR location for this patch.
  5. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not have the IR loaded into the ‘IMPULSES’ column, the patch will not sound correct, even if you have the IR block on – you must drag and drop the IR into the IMPULSES column.

SIGNAL FLOW AND EFFECTS

This download includes four patches.

  • The ‘Matchless WT IR’ patch is the main patch with an IR cab
  • The ‘Matchless WT’ patch is the main patch with a stock cab (we highly recommend the IR version with the included IR from Tone Junkie)
  • The Matchless WT FX 1 and Matchless WT FX 2 include the additional effects that are in the full Helix version of this patch. Feel free to swap any of these effects into the main patch to best suite your setup.

USAGE

We built this patch assuming you will be integrating HX Stomp into an existing effects rig, using it to replace an amp. It includes the base tone components from the full Helix version of this patch, plus delay and reverb options.

DELAY:

There is only one delay in this patch, but it is set up to give you two different sounds via Button 1. In the off state, it is a subtle quarter note delay. In the on state, the mix and feedback are increased for a more prominent delay sound.

REVERB:

There is only one reverb in this patch, but it’s set up to give you two different sounds via Button 2. In the off state, the mix and decay are set to a ‘normal’ level of verb. In the on state, decay and mix increase and you get an ambient verb setting. The ‘On’ state is the same settings from our Helix version of this patch.

MAKING ADJUSTMENTS FOR YOUR SETUP

SETTING THE PATCH UP FOR YOUR GUITAR

All guitars are different, so you may want to make changes to suite your playing style and guitar. We set this up with a variety of guitars, including both single coils and humbuckers (primarily a Telecaster style guitar). If your guitar has humbuckers, please refer to the suggested settings below.

We recommend making a copy of the patch and changing the copy just in case you want to revert back to the original.

RECOMMENDED SETTINGS FOR SINGLE COILS:

The version of this patch you initially download is voiced more toward single coils. We built it primarily using a Telecaster style guitar. If you have a humbucker equipped guitar with low-output humbuckers, it should be perfect for your uses too.

Feel free to adjust the amp EQ and the settings of the Cali Q Graphic block (at the end of the patch) if you’d like to make the patch a bit brighter or darker.

RECOMMENDED SETTINGS FOR HUMBUCKERS:

If your guitar has traditional output Humbuckers, try the following changes (we recommend making a copy of the original patch)…

AMP SETTINGS:

  • Gain: Change to 2.4
  • Cut: Change to 2.9
  • Treble: Change to 6.9

CALI Q GRAPHIC SETTINGS:

  • 240 Hz: Change to 1.7
  • 2200 Hz: Change to 1.5
  • 6600 Hz: Change to 0.8

VOLUME CHANGES

If you would like to make this patch louder or quieter without affecting tone, the following adjustments can be made:

“Ch Vol” control on the amp module. This will increase or decrease volume without affecting the tone of the amp. This is the primary level adjustment tool I use for changing patch volumes.

Output block level. Changing the level control on the output block (the very last thing in the signal chain) will increase or decrease overall volume. We typically have this set at zero, but feel free to adjust this as you see fit.
