What we say:
Line 6 are well known and respected for their innovations in amp modelling (the original POD was a genuine game changer) and their newest flagship floor unit, the HELIX, ably fits with that tradition.
HX modelling is the newest cutting-edge technology developed to capture the subtle nuances of a physical amplifier like nothing else. Every tiny detail, reactive measure, gain breakup, natural compression and other characteristic is captured to perfection. The speakers are modelled, the components are modelled, every element is taken into consideration and accurately recreated. The amp models onboard (of which there are over 60) FEEL real as you’re playing and react realistically to give you a full experience as a player.
The same level of care and attention has been given to the effects. There are over 100 onboard the HELIX ranging from incredibly detailed recreations of vintage octave fuzzes and prized modulations to complex reverb algorithms and a good selection of left-of-centre filter and pitch effects.
The unit itself is a large, rugged, metal box with 12 touch-sensitive foot switches and a particularly large 6.2”, 800x480 pixel LCD screen that holds a wealth of real-time colour coded information. It can be edited simply on the unit itself or from a computer via the HELIX EDIT software. Inputs and outputs are comprehensive on this unit: there’s USB, MIDI, S/PDIF, two stereo FX sends and returns, a balanced XLR in, two balanced XLR outs, an Aux in, inputs for additional expression pedals…the list is massive and it’s reassuring to see that Line 6 have thought of every professional eventuality and included it on the hardware. This can even be used as an 8 in/8 out audio interface!
The HELIX delivers absolutely realistic amp & effects modelling with plenty of scope for application and use by the professional musician who requires a selection of realistic rigs to be available in an instant, with all patching and connecting options considered and all of it in a robust, stage-friendly unit. This goes way beyond powerful.
