    Put together a little preset. Turned out pretty decent, imho!

    Pu it to the test, record yourself over a bassless track and see how well it works :)

    Used the bass less tracks for reference when I dialed in this tone :) But sure - I can do it during the week! :)

    The tone’s up on the Custom Tone page if you want to try it out :) The tone is basically based around the Obsidian 7000 :)

    I just watched a Sheehan /Helix podcast
    Did he ever share any of his tones?
    He also mentioned a guy named John Willis. That did Billy Tones. Know anything about him?
    Also, I’ve never seen that page of Custom Tones
    How do I download the tones and get em on my 6
    I use an iMac if that helps

    Nah, Billy is still tweaking his tones - but he has said that he’ll share them soon enough. He just doesn’t have enough time on his hands to “finish them”, so to speak.

    Jon Willis is a friend of mine. A great bass player and a wizard of the tone shaping. His presets are also up on the Custom Tone—page (Look for JSchwalls).

    To be able to download from the custom tone page, all you need to do is to register your e-mail and make sure that you have the Helix editor installed. Then you just download the patch, import it (drag and drop) to the Helix and off you go! :)

    Go here: Line 6 and scroll to “HX Edit” in the Software-menu! :)

    Quick question about the Custom Tone downloads at Line 6. When I click on a tone I wanna download I click on it and only shows me description and user name for the patch and nowhere in that box shows a download link. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks !

    You need to be logged in to your Line 6 user account (Takes a minute to set up) to be able to download the tones :)
