Distortion Stomps Kemper Profiling Amp

Demo by Have Guitar

In this video we’ll dive into the Red Zone of the Kemper’s effects; the distortion stomps. There are seven different stomps to choose from, all based on some classic stomps that I guess most guitarists are aware of… These effects brings out a variety of distortion effects that you can apply to any given profile to spice up your tone.

So you can of course add a drive stomp to add gain but you can also keep the drive to zero just using the effect to color your sound and add that little extra boost that might be needed. You can place them before or after the amp which will drastically change how the drive affects your tone. And you can stack two or more drives if that’s what you need. In this video I will go through the first five drive effects (Green Scream, Plus DS, One DS, Muffin and the Mouse) – part 2 will contain the remaining two (Fuzz DS and Metal DS) plus some stacking examples. The shaper and boost effects will be covered in a part 3 video of this series.

Sorry but I do not own the original pedals, would love to make a comparative video but that just isn’t possible right now. Maybe one day…

Line 6 Helix Native – All the… no, wait… some of the Presets!

The one year jubilee continues with more bonus videos, here’s the last Helix Native video I managed to squeeze in before the trial ended!

Here’s a crazy video series where Have Guitar demo’s ALL the presets … no, wait… is there another folder? Lets see… Factory2. Oh, 128 additional presets. Curtains down!

Yes, so I missed out on that. It was only an additional 128 presets of the Line 6 Helix Native. No big deal. Besides I had less than two days left on the trial version when I discovered that! So, this is the last video I could do – my fav’s from the Factory2 folder. Sorry for this miss from my side…

So a software version of the Line Helix? Yeah, isn’t that great! What if we could have at least a sound editor like this for the Kemper? Dream on… but meanwhile you can have listen to the Helix at least. And if you like what you hear you can try it out too! Just download it and register at Line 6 and you’ll get a 15-day-trial with the Helix Native.

Line 6 Helix Native – All the presets (4 of … 5!)

Here’s a crazy (bonus!) video series where Have Guitar demo’s ALL the Factory1 presets from in Line 6’s new VST plugin, Helix Native. This is part four of four, containing presets 97 – 128 of Helix Natives Factory1 presets.

So… a correction needs to be done. First I thought there was 32 presets, “Makes a nice video” was my first thought. Then I realized it was 32 x 4 = 128 presets. Pfew… but I’ll make that happend anyways. And then – I noticed there was another folder – Factory2 – with 128 more preset. 256 presets all in all. And that I discovered two days before the trial version runs out!! So I had to compromise, there will be a fifth video with 32 demos from Factory2. Sorry but that’s the best I could come up with due to the time limit.

So a software version of the Line Helix? Yeah, isn’t that great! What if we could have at least a sound editor like this for the Kemper? Dream on… but meanwhile you can have listen to the Helix at least. And if you like what you hear you can try it out too! Just download it and register at Line 6 and you’ll get a 15-day-trial with the Helix Native.
