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.

Hope you liked the video! If so please support Have Guitars effort to bring fun guitar-related videos to quaff boredom by subscribing to channel. A big thanks as always to all of you already subscribing!

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.

Kemper Rig Showcase: ReampZones Orange AD140

One year and one day since the first Kemper Rig Showcase appeared at Have Guitar! – let’s throw in a bonus Sunday video on that! This is ReampZone’s Orange AD140 – a very capable rig pack that covers what you need from clean to crunch sounds. It’s more in the style of rock, blues and similar and to add to that it’s modded as well, making it more unique than anything else…

The AD140 is no longer in stock, I think they stopped the production in 2006 (correct me if I’m wrong!) so if you want a beast like this you need to search for a used one. Or you could get a Kemper Profiling Amp and buy this pack.

Hope you liked the video! If so please support Have Guitars effort to bring fun guitar-related videos to quaff boredom by subscribing to the channel. A big thanks as always to all of you already subscribing, much appriciated!

Kemper Jubilee Rig Showcase: Top 5 profile packs from the last year!

Have Guitar is honored to give you the One Year Jubilee Kemper Rig Showcase – I can’t belive a whole year has passed since the first Kemper Rig Showcase was published here at Have Guitar!

Short history of Have Guitar!:
In 2007 I noticed the increasing trend of Youtube and as I’ve always been fascinated by any terms of expressing your self through video I felt I wanted to start something too. Took until early 2009 before I actually did start the channel and uploaded my first video (Greco vs Gibson) but at that time I didn’t really have access to what it took to make a good video. Still content is king so that video took off with a quite impressive amount of views.

So job, small kids and other stuff took its toll and I didn’t have much time for making videos… FF to spring 2016, I had moved to a place where I could have a studio and I wanted to get back on track with playing the guitar again, something I hadn’t really been doing much for a way too long time. Then I bought my Gibson SG on a sale and that somehow made me think about the Youtube channel again – Have Guitar! was restarted even if the videos wasn’t exactly pouring out.

So sitting around with lots of profiles packs for my Kemper I thought to myself, that could be the starting base for the channel and then the 9th of September 2016 I published the first Kemper Rig Showcase, ReampZones Hughes & Kettner Triology. Still was a bit randomness to when I published videos for a few months and I think it was around January 2017 that I decided to go for the “a new video every thursday” concept.

So far, so good – been able to keep that up for nine months now – I have learnt a lot during these months and I’m pretty sure I will learn a whole lot more as time flies past. And I must say I succeeded in what my main motivation was – to inspire myself to play more guitar (after that too long break) and the cherry on the cake is that people have been watching the videos and given positive feedback and subscribed to my channel!

So with this video I just wanna say thanks for the likes, comments, views and subscribtions! Here you will get the Top 5 profile packs that has been showcased at Have Guitar for the past year. They are shown in no particular order so number one isn’t higher rated than number five, it’s just my favourite five rig packs tested out in my videos.

And HEY! If don’t wanna spoil which profilers are featured in the video you shouldn’t read any further until you have watched the video… because there’s links to their websites a bit down here so stop reading now and watch the video! πŸ™‚

Thanks for all the support, I hope you will like this video and there’s more to come! As always, if you don’t subscribe please do so to support Have Guitar! – every individual counts and you will have my eternal gratitude, something that all of you who already do subscribe already have – Thanks! πŸ™‚

Kemper Rig Showcase: ReampZones Marshall JCM900 MKIII 2100

Have Guitar is stoked to present a new Kemper Rig Showcase – ReampZones Marshall JCM900 MKIII 2100! Sure sounds like a Marshall to me and I mean that in a good way!

The first Marshall JCM900 was released early 1990, designed for higher gain and less noise. When Guitar World tested the new Marshall amps they concluded it as “Marshall has once again successfully reinvented itself”. Me personally think ReampZone has done a good job indeed capturing that Marshall vibe in these profiles, from the powerful clean tone to the screamin’ high gain notes. Watch the video for a cut of you’ll get!

Hope you like this Rig Showcase from Have Guitar! and if you please do subscribe to the channel to give me some support! The goal is to release a new video every Thursday and when there’s time more than that… because playing guitar is fun! Thanks for watching my videos and a very big Thank You to all of you who are subscribing!!

Live Ready Sounds A Typ 2×12 Speaker Cabinet Impulse Response Set

Have Guitar tests out impulse response files for the Kemper Profiling Amp. This is the first time I have explored the possibilities of replacing the cab of a Kemper profile with a 3rd party impulse response file. It’s close to reamping as the cab really affects the sound you will get out, giving you a plethora of options that you can apply and change after the guitar is recorded.

In this video I’m testing Live Ready Sounds A typ 2×12 Speaker Cabinet Impulse Response Set, applying these IR:s on profiles from Live Ready Sounds (Triple Rectified EL34 profile pack). You will get sound examples from clean, crunch and high gain sounds, all lined/recorded directly into Reaper for the best audio quality.

I hope you liked this video, please do subscribe to Have Guitar to give my little channel some support. It’s all free of course and just takes a click on the sub-button… As always – a very Big thanks to all of you already subscribing!

Restring your 2016 G FORCE

OK, so I tried making a ‘howto’ video on restringing your 2016 G-force system – it did not come out perfect, but I hope you think it is good enough and that you have some use of it. It was kinda awkward to film at the same time you’re buzy switching the strings. And as I said in the video: it makes a real difference when you do it according to Gibsons recommendations!! Trust me… πŸ™‚ Have Guitar!

Gibson G FORCE 2016 Owner’s Manual

Review: Gibson SG Standard 2016 High Performance (shorter)

So, I decided to make a shorter version of the review and here it is in about half the time. If you don’t wanna hear me talking you can skip to 14:36, where I do some comparing soloing.

So, what’s the Gibson SG High Performance like? How does it sound? And how does it play? In this long review we will try to give you all those answer and then some… with standalone sound examples as well as together with backing tracks.

Featuring mahogany body, g-force tuners, titanium sadles and zero-fret nut, 490R & 498T pickups and a bunch of other upgrades, this isn’t your simple standard Gibson SG. It also includes an aluminium case that is ridiculusly hard to carry due to its weight.

This is an update, ten months after I bought the guitar. There is one thing that really is a let down with the Gibson SG Standard HP and that it the G-force system / tuners. Time from time I did have problems getting the guitar to stay in tune, however that seemed to be more or less sorted as I followed the restring-instructions in the manual… but after c:a 8 months the auto-tuning for the g-string stopped working. As I write this (march 17) it has been sitting in the shop for a month waiting for the replacement tuner.
