Helios® Type 69 Preamp and EQ Collection
Helios® Type 69 Preamp and EQ Collection
This is a great sounding pre. I use it for vocals, guitars, add extra kick to tacos. It does it all. Super useable, and sounds great!
Favorite unison preamp
The API Vision has been my unison preamp of choice for years, but it hasn't seen much use since I got this one. Lots of character but can also be clean when you dial the input back. Just a killer sounding preamp and EQ that can be used on almost anything and will make it sound better.
A great update
This is great on vocals and lead instruments. The incremental gain is great for adding fire 10Db boosts. Really is night and day from Helios, which was unfairly slagged allot. This is a wonderful tool.
Easily take out the mud in any sound!
Love this tool you can easily bring out the mudiness in sounds and in a beautiful way. Easily cut the low end, boost the top and mid and control easily with the fader. Great buy!
The Helios is quickly becoming a favorite of mine from the whole UAD family of Mic Pres... Very natural with a good amount of character. Easy to dial in your own, or if you choose a preset, there are great ones to choose from...
Helios was not a purchase, it was an investment of tone!!!
Been loving this plugin! It's been a go-to starting point that usually stays in the chain for electric guitars in a mix. A good friend and wonderful engineer who's been familiar with my work for about 15 years recently told me that every time he hears one of my mixes lately, he's reminded that he needs to "step up his guitar game." Hahaha! I'll take a compliment like that and the Helios Type 69 is largely responsible.
Lives up to hype !
Granted I've never recorded through a real Helios, I have used Neve's and SSL etc... I was really impressed with the Preamp using the Unison. Really made the guitars sound huge and thick in a really musical way. Very happy with my purchase!
I sing the body electric
I just got done putting this on everything in a mix that had given me problems on the sterile side and now things are more on the Joe Walsh side, which is what I was after...when it's right, it's right...
just adding this on your insert makes the track sound better :) love it
Easy and versatile. Has the best digital distortion I've heard yet.
Excellent preamp character for a touch of dirt
I love using the Helios preamp to just a little bit of grit to tracks. The character is a bit cleaner and more open than the Neve and tube preamps, which makes it a great addition to my plug-in arsenal. The EQ is great too.
BEST IN VOICE SELECT
I used this with the voices in mix and the like sound is impressive!!! Best Product!!
Add excitement !
I added the channel strip to my drum bus, increased the gain and instant excitement !
Made my day !!!
This pre (and the EQ) are everything I hoped and expected. Lots of tonal options and flexibility. It’s so simple and easy to get a good sound. I’m trying to get a vintage sound, and this nails it. Highly recommended if you want something diff than the Neve or UA pres that everyone else hasn’t.
TR: Bu gerçekten harika bir koleksiyon. Şiddetle tavsiye ederim.
EN: This is a really great collection. Would highly recommend.
The best Preamp and Eq with analogical perception of the reality
As I wrote in the index this preamp used by the Beatles and more and more is The best Preamp and Eq with analogical perception of the reality
I love it and I found it superior of the famous Neve 1073 that I also own
I am the lucky owner of this pre-amp, along with the Neve 1073.
The Helios 69 makes a BIG difference on electric guitar. The Helios and NEVE are 2 completely different pre-amps. Put on guitars, the difference is obvious.
One of my best investment this year with UAD. Highly recommended.
This is crazy good!!
I was kind of skeptical about preamp emulations so I hadn't great expectations about it. WRONG. It's a game changer, that's what it is. Try it, seriously.
I am so satisfied!!!!
It gives a moderately sharp feeling that is not exaggerated. And it is really clear.
