Write a user review

Line 6 introduces the next generation of multi-effect processors for guitar, the Helix series, with a pedalboard and a rack+foot controller units.

The Helix digital multi-effect pedal and rack both use the new HX dual-DSP processing engine, which is designed to improve the amp and effect emulations.

The Helix is equipped with a large 6.2” 800 × 400 pixel color LCD display with 6 control knobs, a joystick for navigation and separate volume controls for the main output and headphones. 12 footswitches with multicolor LED rings are completed with small displays so you can visualize and customize the assigned effect and feature labels. These footswitches support three operations (touch to select, hold to assign and press to activate).

The new Helix feature all the connections you need: XLR mic input, 4 effect loops, aux input, two expression pedal inputs (the Helix pedalboard includes a pedal), CV input, XLR and 1/4” stereo outputs, headphone output, MIDI In and Out/Thru, Digital I/O (S/PDIF, AES/EBU and L6 Link), USB port and a connection for a Variax guitar.

The Helix Rack is designed to be rack mounted and remotely controlled from the Helix Control foot controller. The latter features the same 12 footswitches and a smaller main display than on the Helix pedalboard.

The Helix pedal will be the first to be released, late summer, and will carry a US price of $1,499. The Helix Rack and the Helix Control will come later this fall and will be available for $1,499 and $499 respectively. Full details are expected soon at line6.com/helix/
