    I love my Helix so the high quality HX stuff in the stomp will be perfect.

    Hx stomp came in today. I actually quite like the interface and it’s easy to work with. I can tell the modeling is high quality and good tones are definitely there but I think there’s two things holding it back a little for me. The first is I think I need to try loading in my own impulse responses as I have a feeling the stock ones are a little lackluster. The second is I think I really have to adjust and get used to playing with headphones - for years the little bit I’ve played has been through a real amp in a room, so the feeling with headphones is completely different and will definitely take some getting used to. So far I really like the unit though and it seems very high quality for the money.

    One recommendation I have for making patches that act like a real amp is to use the same cab regardless of amp model. I use the Greenback 4x12 with a ribbon for all my main patches. It really helps it feel like I am switching amp channels instead of changing amps every time I change a preset.

    Having the other cabs is great for recording dubs or trying something new for a different feel and inspiration but for just turning it on to jam, I want it to sound cohesive.

    You definitely need to let your ears "reset" so to speak when flipping through cab impulses. It's like eating two disparate foods.

    also, don't feel you have to rush anything. I always see "but no one uses X to its full capacity!" who gives a shit, let it inspire you to play.
