The Line 6 Helix is much more than just a multi-effects processor. Besides the fantaschtischen and extensive effects and amp sounds the helix can also be utilised as the control unit for the complete guitar setup. Existing traditional Effects and amplifiers of the respective guitar rig "fuse" with the Line 6 helix to form a unit and be easily and intuitively controlled and managed by the Helix.
Nearly four years of developement and entirely new methods of modelling, Line 6 bring back digital Multi effects to a new level. The new amps, cabinets, and effect sounds of the HX-Modeling Systems are 100% convincing, even those who had a lot of experience and had spent aextensive time in the studio with vintage Tube amps were convinced of the Line 6 sound. The dual DSP processors cater for warmth and Dynamics of a Tube Amp.
A new type of operation with touch-sensitive footswitches also makes it possible to jump to specific points of the menu and, for example, select an effect and its parameters by touching, without having to navigate through several menus.
Next Generation Dual DSP-based HX Modeling Engine with 4 discrete stereo signal paths, 45 amps, 30 Cabs, 16 microphones and 70 effects, imported IRs (impulse responses) with up to 1024/2048 samples in length, 12 pressure-sensitive footswitches with customisable display fields, Hands Free pedal Edit mode defines the effect parameters on the switch and the expression pedal, near-instant footswitch and controller assignment, up to 3 expression pedals, CV / expression output amplifier switching outputs and extensive MIDI control, extensive inputs, and outputs for seamless integration of the entire rig, 10 inputs, 12 outputs (including four FX Loops), 8 In / 8 Out USB audio interface, AES / EBU, SPDIF and VDI interfaces, 123 dB dynamic range at guitar input for tremendous depth and low noise, robust construction.
