Line 6

The Most Powerful Guitar Processor Ever? Guitar players, the game has changed

The Line 6 Helix multi-effects floorboard processor reaches far beyond anything you've ever experienced. It can be a great addition to your rig, a streamlined controller for your existing system, or an incredible-sounding guitar interface for recording in the studio — it can even replace your entire effects setup! 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 amazing. And your rig-integration options are limitless, with Helix's astoundingly comprehensive I/O and routing capabilities. Line 6 has long been at the front of the modeling revolution, and Helix is the professional guitar processor Line 6 was destined to make.

Power to Spare - Every nuance of sound and feel captured

Line 6 spearheaded the modeling revolution years ago. Now they step into the future with Helix. Helix's brain is Line 6's 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 aspect 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. And you can also load custom impulse responses to personalize your tone.

  • Dual DSP-powered HX modeling engine
  • 45 amps, 30 cabs, 16 mics, and 70 effects
  • Up to four simultaneous amplifiers
  • Up to 32 simultaneous effects
  • Four stereo discrete signal paths

Up and Running in No Time - Deep modeling, user-friendly design

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 with a five-minute glance at the full-color Helix quick start guide. And we're not just talking tone editing. The four stereo paths per preset allow for all sorts of routing setups. You can design your rig at the speed of thought.

  • Editing workflow can be mastered incredibly quickly
  • 6.2" 800 x 480 LCD display
  • 12 touch-sensitive footswitches for editing
  • Six smart edit knobs

Give Helix the Control - New creative options for your existing pedals

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/O on any guitar processor, it allows you to easily create a hardware/software hybrid setup integrating your other pedals, your channel-switching tube amplifier, 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, 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.

  • 10 inputs, 12 outputs (including four effects loops)
  • 8-in/8-out USB audio interface
  • Three expression pedal outs
  • CV/Expression out
  • External amp switching
  • XLR input
  • S/PDIF, AES/EBU, and L6 Link digital outputs

Changes with the Tap of the Toe - Bulletproof, touch-sensitive, and color-coded footswitches

If there's one thing Sweetwater guitarists 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 of the sound and parameter tweaking you'll ever need. And each switch carries a customizable LCD scribble strip for assigning your controls. Now you won't even have to stop playing to get super-deep control and edit your whole rig.

  • Capacitive touch-sensitive switches for parameter recall
  • Assignable RGB LED color rings
  • Customizable LCD scribble strips
  • Preset or stompbox modes
  • Integrated looper

Tour-grade Durability - Road-ready solid aluminum

Since gear takes such a beating on the road, every single component in the Line 6 Helix was chosen to be able to stand up to the punishment a professional guitarist will put it through. Helix combats the abuse with road-ready footswitches and a bulletproof housing. From the side panels to the extruded top, the solid-aluminum construction won't bend or break. It will let you concentrate on your performance, not your gear. Even the expression pedal is made from the same aluminum. So if you're a gigging musician who needs a tour-grade multi-effects unit that can keep up with you, make sure to give Helix an audition.

  • Solid-aluminum construction
  • Tour-grade footswitches
  • Extruded metal design

Helix Answers Your Guitar Gear Needs - Onstage or in the studio, it's a stellar performer

It almost doesn't matter what amp or effect you're looking for. Since Helix can be used as a standard amp modeler, a streamlined controller for your rig, a guitar interface, or your entire rig by itself, it has what you need. Line 6's new HX modeling engine gives you all the sounds they're known for, completely redesigned to be amazingly accurate. And your rig-integration options are limitless with Helix's comprehensive I/O. Helix is Line 6's most advanced processor yet, and it could be the most valuable tool in your sonic arsenal!
