The delays are great. Vintage digital is my current favorite. I’m also using the harmonic trem, eq, and some dirt from mine. Very happy with it. There are so many awesome sounds in there.I like and use the HX verbs often and have used them right next to Strymon, H9 etc.
if you are looking for a specific Strymon or H9....get that
im sick of those sounds and don’t need them
the delays are pretty much what I want.
the Tapes, Vintage Digital, Adriatic Memory Man...all good for me.
+1I don't get the HX Reverb hate. But when I had the AX8 I also didn't understand the gushing over their verbs. Guess I'm just the odd man out here but it feels a bit like a group think thing...
it's the worst possible use I can think of for the HX stomp as the reverbs are possibly the worst sounding effects in the unit. I would look elsewhere for that.I've been toying with this idea, it's smaller and lighter than a HXFX, i don't need too many presets, but then again i hear the delay/reverb are the worst part of the helix algorithms..
anyone doing this?
I have not long had my HX Effects, nor do I have formal qualifications in reverb/delay righteousness ... but I do have to say I agree with you on this. It didn't take me long to find and dial in a reverb and delay that I liked ... to the point where I'm playing and liking, and forgetting about tweaking.I don't get the HX Reverb hate. But when I had the AX8 I also didn't understand the gushing over their verbs. Guess I'm just the odd man out here but it feels a bit like a group think thing...
