Been using Line 6 Helix Native (vst) for awhile to jam and play along to songs, etc. This is the first time I've attempted to record a whole song (which happened to be for a cover contest for a music chain in Canada) using Helix Native. Only had a couple hours to write/record and mix this but I found it very easy to dial-in tones since I can easily 're-amp' the DI tracks on the fly. Once you become familiar with Helix it's very easy to dial-in tones that work in the mix, unlike some other vst-modelers i've tried. I went a little over-the-top on some of the sounds (mainly the lead tone), but it was all just for fun, nothing serious. All the guitar tones are using a Friedman BE100 (Placater model) and a Redwire IR (Bogner 4x12 w/ v30's). Used an ESP/LTD EC-1000 with Dimarzio Titans in Drop C, with an Ibanez SR405nt for bass using the Ampeg SVT model with an Ownhammer IR. -----Warning: I have no skills when it comes to mixing; in other words, I'm an amateur. And yes, my playing is super sloppy. -How have other people found Helix Native for recording?
