The Line 6 Helix is a incredibly powerful new guitar effects processor, its tour-grade construction and studio-quality sounds make this a professional standard product that will withstand the rigours of writing, recording and gigging. The new HX modelling engine lets you adjust amps, cabs, mics, and effects for a huge range of tones, from vintage to modern. If you rely on unique pedals the Helix lets you integrate them thanks to its comprehensive I/O and routing capabilities. When you have your setup connected you can create custom setups and footswitch labels for smooth operation.
Line 6 have included a next-gen dual-DSP engine which provides massive power for accurate tube tone, not an approximation of it. Every stage of a huge range of amps' circuitry has been analysed, which means the controls respond like the real thing. If you want to go down into minute detail, the Helix extends into areas like power supply ripple, individual tube sag, and control over B+ voltages- one for proper tone nerds!
Line 6 have been careful to make sure that the Helix is intuitive from the get go. Its touch-sensitive footswitches allow you to select an effect block for editing simply by touching it, while the large 6.2 inch 800x480-pixel LCD display feels like an external editor because it's so easy to use. The coloured LED rings and customisable scribble strips make it easy to customise the interface to your preference. You can even customise your tone on the go simply by selecting the block you want to tweak and controlling it with the expression pedal.
If you're looking for a next generation guitar effects processor, look no further than the Line 6 Helix.
