Authentic Sound & Feel
The Helix is the ultimate solution for acquiring real, rich tone. This next generation processor uses a new dual-DSP engine to provide you with an enormous amount of power, and giving you the ability to accurately recreate your favourite sounds, or discover the exciting dynamic feel of real tube amplifiers, instead of just a copy of their sound. Line 6 have accurately measured and matched each stage of an amplifiers circuit and implemented these measurements into the Helix's engine. Every single model reacts exactly as it would if you were playing through the real amplifier. With extensive attention to detail that replicates power supply ripple, individual tube sag, and even control over B+ voltages, the Helix enables you to truly experience the unique characteristics of your dream amplifier. With the ability to load custom impulse responses, the Helix is the perfect way to create your personal sound with almost limitless capabilities.
The Centre Of Your Rig
The Helix can be easily integrated with traditional effects pedals and other hardware. This enables you to unlock the best combination of hardware and software, and utilise the unique and powerful sound of a hybrid environment. All this is achievable thanks to the Helix being equipped with the most flexible audio routing ever implemented on a guitar processor, along with its dynamically allocated DSP. The Helix uses four effects loops allowing you to connect up to four different pedal chains, or you can even split them up and use them as freely-assignable inputs and outputs.
The Line 6 Helix Guitar Processor does away with the steep learning curves often associated with achieving the perfect tone with enormously powerful gear. Thanks to the durable touch-sensitive footswitches, the Helix allows you to select an effect block to edit simply by touching it. Combined with a large 6.2'' 800 x 400-pixel LCD display, endless menu-diving is a thing of the past, giving you the same level of control that you would expect from an external editor. Achieving great tone at high speeds is quick and easy, with coloured LED rings and customisable scribble-strips letting you know what each footswitch is doing at a glance.
The Helix enables you to interact with technology in a significantly more intuitive manner. Creating the perfect tone has never been easier, and you won't even have to stop playing to tweak a control knob. Thanks to the built-in Pedal Edit Mode, you can use your feet not only for activating and bypassing effects, but for making accurate adjustments to parameters by selecting your desired pedal block, then the parameter, and adjusting it with the expression pedal.
This touch-sensitive footswitch control makes the Helix the fastest tone-creator of its kind currently in existence. On top of this, it's also the most flexible and versatile too. You can design complex routing scenarios for each patch thanks to the Helix being equipped with four stereo paths per preset. You can create variations on wet and dry routing schemes incredibly quickly with ease, or use the onboard effects models in conjunction with the four freely-assignable effects loops. The Line 6 Helix is like no other pedal you've seen before, representing a new way of thinking for both guitarists and technological development. It provides creative musicians the tools to rapidly recreate the sound they hear in their head, and it brings immense tonal capabilities to the heart of your rig.

Line 6 have released the 2.21 firmware update, which enhances the features released in V2.01 for the Helix. With a new collection of models and enhancements, the Helix delivers an even greater playing experience. V2.01 added new variax control enhancements that open up a huge array of new tonal possibilities, alongside new features that help to improve performance. V2.21 optimizes your units performance.
