Thanks Chris.the internet is full of criticism, but at the same time, anything we produce and willingly put up here is allowing it
you seem to be one of the few actually producing content with the Helix, so no one can complain about that. keep doing what you do man. we all get different things out of music, and if what you create makes you happy, that's all anyone can ask for. usually those who take the time to negatively criticize don't ever produce content themselves for fear of criticism strange how that works, eh?
Still guessing. You don't know whether the screens use dsp power or something else. Like when people here thought the AX8 would use dsp power for cabs and Cliff explained that most of the cab modeling is handled in a separate processor.of course. My mistake : it's also the software, as I said, because of the processing power used by the screens
that was guessing as much as it was informed speculation, since that's how all Fractal products up to that point had operated. one dsp for amps and cabs, one for effects.Still guessing.

The guy at TGP that did the first Helix streams and videos got completely bashed... but the community rallied around him. Do your thing man... it's always appreciated by the people that matter!What's really scary is I may do the same thing with the AX8. What will they say then???
Mr. B has all my respect in the world for being innovative and daring. These qualities are worth admiring :encouragement:The guy at TGP that did the first Helix streams and videos got completely bashed... but the community rallied around him.

Accepted. Feel free to beat up on me anytime. Just let me know so I can do the same :lolI apologize for my comment. It was uncalled for.
Thanks.Re: 'Gear' Videos...
I made one once (an FX8 demo). I was hesitant because I know people can be cruel, so why make the effort. I don't personally care much about view counts, not trying to make a Youtube career. But the FX8 had just come out, guys on this forum were asking for videos and wondering why there were so few about the FX8.
Well, this is why there are so few. I was lucky to get some nice comments and thanks from this forum, but it actually never dawned on me that it might have been shared on competitor forums and ripped to shreds by mean people It's had over 40k views in 4 months.. so, probably! I don't even want to know. My playing sucks (at least compared to the greats) but I'd never, ever do another vid if my guitar playing got slammed like this.
So if you like videos... be kind! I admire anyone willing to put themselves out there.
Accepted. You guys bring up a very important point I've said before about videos. Creating a demo video adds 10x the distractions you'd normally find than just an audio recording. This why I think guys like Thorn, Hermans and others are so above the crowd. They make it look easy. It isn't.Me too. Keep working on the demos. Tjon has the recording and video editing part down, which is more than I can say for myself.
