Helios consoles were used to record and mix some of the finest rock, pop and reggae classics ever produced. The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roxy Music, Queen, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley are just a few that recorded with these amazing wrap-around consoles. Moreover, many great musicians of the era purchased Helios consoles for their personal use. Of all the Helios consoles produced between 1969 and 1979, the original "Type 69" is considered the most musical. Universal Audio modeled the EQ section of the very first Type 69. This console was originally found at Island's Basing Street Studio in London; it now resides with Jason Carmer in Berkeley, California, where it continues to record multi-platinum albums.
In this video, we demonstrate some techniques to get the most out of your Helios Type 69 EQ Powered Plug-in.
