Planetshakers Artist patch for the Line 6 HX Stomp. Includes two premium IR Cabs by Tone Junkie for free.

Category: SKU: HST-023

Description

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

ARTIST SERIES PATCH

This patch re-creates the sounds made popular Planetshakers. This is a more rock-oriented patch. They tend to use more gain and classic rock type amps (sounds like Marshall to us).

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 If you get an error importing a patch, the problem is most likely outdated firmware on your HX Stomp/HX Edit.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 IRs included, and their location in our Helix:

  • TJ 31 MATCH 30 R121+57 (TOP ROW) . In our Helix, it’s in IR slot 31 (this will always correspond with the number after ‘TJ’ in the file name).
  • TJ 26 MATCH 25 Fathead 2 (BOTTOM ROW) . In our Helix, it’s in IR slot 26 (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. (the image below shows a  patch, but the HX Stomp patch workflow is exactly the same)

USAGE

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

AMP DRIVE (BUTTON 1):

We’ve set up button 1 to increase the level of “Drive” on each amp (all the way). This essentially gives you an overdrive (although amp drive typically sounds better than an overdrive pedal). The “Min” settings for each amp are the settings found in the Helix version of this patch.

MAKING ADJUSTMENTS FOR YOUR SETUP

SETTING THE PATCH UP FOR YOUR GUITAR

This patch is really built for a guitar with humbuckers (we used a guitar with humbuckers to build it). If you’re using a guitar with single coils, you may want to turn the treble or presence down on the amp if it’s too bright (or up if it’s too dark), and turn up the gain if it’s not dirty. Your guitar may react differently, so you may want to tweak it to suite your guitar(s) and playing style.

Another way to reduce or increase the level of gain if your guitar has higher output pickups is to lower the output level on the compressor. This will keep all the amp settings intact but hit them amps with less signal.

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

EQ Changes. Adjust the EQ controls on the amp to suite your tastes with the base tone. From there, adjust the tone knobs of the drive pedals if desired. You can also adjust the Cali Q Graphic EQ to brighten or darken the amp.

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.
