Line 6 Helix Guitar Multi Effects Pedal
1 In stock
Representing a new way of thinking about guitarists and technology Helix is like no other guitar processor that you've seen before. Immense care was taken to assemble a palette of tools that would let musicians quickly recreate the sound they hear in their head without sonic compromise. When it comes down to authentic sound and feel Helix represents a giant leap forward for guitar technology. The dual-DSP engine provides massive power to accurately recreate the dynamic feel of tube amplifiers not just their sonic fingerprint. The new HX Hybrid cabs represent a new approach to the speaker cabinet capture process. Not only do they provide the resolution of a 2048-point Impulse Response at lower DSP usage they also provide a far more accurate low-end response than previously possible as the proximity effect of the microphone is accurately captured at 12 different distances. Helix also lets you load custom impulse responses allowing you to personalize your rig setup even further. Each stage of an amp's circuit has been measured and matched back to the original so that each model reacts and interacts just like the real thing. This level of dynamic circuit detail extends into areas like power supply ripple individual tube sag and control over B+ voltages. Once these elements are captured you get classic bloom and gooey compression on some amps and a powerful gut punch on others. Massive power traditionally comes with a steep learning curve but Helix challenges that way of thinking. Touch-sensitive footswitches allow you to select an effect block or other item for editing simply by touching it. In combination the large 6.2 inch 800x480-pixel LCD display all but eliminates menu-diving and provides the same level of control you might expect from an external editor. Colored LED rings and customizable scribble strips complete the user interface letting you know what each footswitch is doing at a glance. Helix was designed to allow guitarists to interact with technology in ways that are more intuitive making the creation of tones easier. This means that for the very first time you won't have to stop playing to tweak a knob. With Pedal Edit Mode you can edit any amp or effect parameter you like using your foot: simply select the block that you want to tweak and its parameters spill out onto the footswitches. Select a parameter and tweak the value using the expression pedal. Helix is the fastest tone creator of its kind giving you the ability to touch a footswitch and quickly tweak parameters or easily assign or learn controllers. Instantly jump to any block simply by touching the associated footswitch. It's so fast you can comfortably assign any item to a switch in 3 seconds. With FOUR stereo signal paths per preset Helix allows you to design complex routing scenarios. Creating variations on 4-cable method and wet-dry-wet routing schemes is as easy as selecting a template preset and using the onboard effects models in conjunction with the 4 freely-assignable effects loops means that the tonal possibilities are truly huge. As the most advanced guitar processor ever made Helix can become the nerve center for your entire studio or touring rig . Easily integrate traditional effects pedals and other hardware into your environment creating a seamless hybrid rig that incorporates the best of what software and hardware have to offer. Helix has the most flexible audio routing ever seen on a guitar processor. Use the four effects loops to connect four separate pedal chains or split them up and use them as freely-assignable inputs and outputs. In combination with four discrete signal paths this means that you can process multiple instruments at once send wet and dry signals to different places and create large integrated systems that take advantage of both digital and analog I/O at the same time. When you need to incorporate external devices via MIDI Helix offers more flexibility than any multi-effect ever. In addition to powerful real time MIDI control Helix can send up to six separate commands at patch recall that aren't assigned to a footswitch which means you can change a patch on a synth start a sequencer and turn up a fader on an external digital mixer all with one press of a footswitch. Add two additional expression pedal inputs CV/Expression out and external amp switching and Helix can be the command center for any size rig.
