MONSTROUS & WIDE - Metal L6 Helix Preset Pack
These are my hand created patches designed for a modern high gain metal sound when big heavy chuggy riffs are important. This pack has balls. Big balls.
Many of the presets i have toured for years and are designed for one guitar bands to fill the room with sound. Every preset has SEND 4 going out to be put into the FX RETURN of any amp for stage use. Then the master output going to to FOH and some use SEND 3 for extra bottom end to be mixed in, say if your bassist gets on the gear and doesn’t turn up (screw that guy)
Patch 1: MONSTROUS & WIDE 1
Based on Das Benzin Head. This is a wonderfully under rated head and sounds incredible. This is my main wide go to sound.
HUGE for Rhythm guitars. If this patch alone doesn’t fill you full of inspiration to play some meaty chuggy drop tuned riffs you may as well give up guitar and go learn how to sew.

Snapshot 2: Intro - A thin Band Passed Intro / Pre Chorus sound
Snapshot 3: Intro Buzz - Like the intro sound but from Sweden
Snapshot 4: BuzzSaw - A huge sound, but also Swedish. Bork bork bork.
Patch 2: MONSTROUS & WIDE 2
Based on the 5150 & Epic as an ultra wide guitar tone, with an Ampeg SVT sub mixed in.
This was a patch i toured with around AU & USA when there was 1 guitar, no bass. Bass can be sent to a seperate output. Its the biggest sounding patch out there!
