Equipped with Line 6’s new HX modeling engine, Helix will let you hear brand-new models of modern and vintage amps, cabs, mics, and effects — all designed to sound and feel just like the originals.

Power to spare

Line 6 spearheaded the modeling revolution years ago. Now they are stepping into the future with Helix. At the core of the Helix is Line 6’s new dual DSP HX modeling engine. Representing a giant leap forward in guitar technology, the HX engine reproduces every minute detail that goes into a great amplifier. Every single detail has been taken into account, down to an amplifier’s power supply ripple and tube sag, ensuring you receive an ultra-realistic playing feel and experience. The classic bloom and compression of some amps and the powerful punch of others are all faithfully accounted for. Plus, you can also load custom impulse responses to personalize your tone.

Up and running in no time

Before Helix, powerful amp and effects modeling came with a significant learning curve. But even with a massive amount of routing, recording, and editing power under the hood, Helix’s touch-sensitive footswitches let you actually edit your whole sound with your feet, without even having to stop playing. And the large 6.2″ LCD display rids the system of all the menu surfing, while giving as much control as the deepest editing software. It’s so intuitive to navigate that Line 6 claims you’ll have 90% of Helix mastered within a five-minute glance at the full-color Helix quick-start guide; and we’re not just talking tone editing. Design your rig at the speed of thought.

Give Helix the control

Already have a beloved guitar rig that you’ve spent years getting just right? Perfect! Helix also makes a robust controller for your rig. Offering one of the most in-depth routing I/Os on any guitar processor, it allows you to easily create a hardware/software hybrid setup integrating your other pedals, your channel-switching tube amplifier, your rack equipment, and even other instruments. And you do it all through Helix’s four stereo effects loops. You can send multiple wet and dry signals to different sources, place the loops in various locations in your signal chain, swap between your amp and modeled sounds, switch channels on your external amps, and so much more, at the press of a footswitch. You can even take control of your band’s MIDI rig with up to six separate MIDI commands at patch recall.

Changes with the tap of the toe

If there’s one thing Sweetwater guitar players know, it’s that guitarists love stompbox pedals. While menu and software editing can offer great tones and control, we’re naturally inclined to want to step on a footswitch and hear the tone we’re looking for. Line 6 understands that, which is why Helix eschews all of the deep and confusing editing that plagues many other pro-level products, for a simple-to-use 12-footswitch interface that gives you all the sound and parameter tweaking you’ll ever need. And each switch carries a customizable LCD scribble strip for assigning names to your controls. Now you don’t even have to stop playing to get comprehensive control of your whole rig.
