Rick Beato Helix Pack 1

The AC30 and Fender Deluxe Reverb are two of my favorite amps and I own both of these in my studio.  I found while producing that I was using them quite a bit for cleaner picking parts that I would add to my productions but both of these amps break up nicely and can provide really good dirtier rhythm tones.  I covered all the bases here for the sounds I would normally use.    

(Unless noted, all presets are only using stock impulse responses since custom IRs wont remain linked to the profile.  Also, for most presets, I left the other snapshots open for the user to tweak, customize, and save without disturbing the original presets.  You will see that EQ has been added to each preset when needed to help simulate the top and low end of the real amps and how I am used to hearing them.  Finally, make sure to try out different guitars with the presets.  When working on the models, I used telecasters, strats, Les Pauls, and other guitars and of course, all guitars and pickups will react differently.  If a telecaster seems too bright, try using a guitar with P90 pickups.  The clean tones will always sound great with a single-coil guitar but certainly try a Les Paul in the neck position.  And if the gain is not enough for you, definitely use a guitar with a humbucker!)
