What are your go-to IRs for helix.
I'm using a PRS mark holcomb 7 string into Helix LT and was wondering what IRs are you guys using

IR brand-wise, York Audio are flavour of the month, Ownhammer are flavour of last month, and free ones will do just fine in many cases.

Speaker/cab-wise, It's really down to personal preference, but if you're into 7 string music there's a reasonable chance you will like an IR captured from a Mesa Oversized 4x12 with Vintage 30s.

York Audio's DV77 pack is great, and it also contains an IR that's specifically for drop tuning. I find it a little too "djenty" though, given how I set up the rest of my Pod Go - Horizon Drive > Revv Gen Purple.

For my live sounds, I looooove the York DV-77 "Mean" mix IR. For jamming at home I tend to switch it up all the time between ML Sound Labs, Bogren, and York IRs depending on how I'm feeling. Bogren and ML both work GREAT in a mix or when you're just making noise, but I find them to all have a little too much EQ baked in for live and loud play.

What happened with Ownhammer? I feel like they haven't released anything in years

Literally no idea. Everyone recommended them one day, and then the next day, the hive mind shifted to York Audio.

I'm not so sure they work with them anymore as their signature doesn't reflect it anymore iirc it used to, and they have pretty consistently posted York audio as of late. Could be wrong.

I can't remember any specifics but I seem to recall something about them working with either a software or hardware manufacturer for exclusive cabs.

If it's who I think it is, yeah, he uses York Audio impulses now.
FWIW I also use them. I use an IR from the 412 Mesa and 212 Mesa in stereo.

Blend of the YA DV-77 and Mesa OS412/M65 Creamback 212. I always prefer blends of cabs. York Audio is my go to these days,

Going back and forth between York Audio Mesa OS 412 and DV-77 Mean Mix.

I'm just too lazy to start blending cabs aand I prefer just the simplicity of the Mix
