Line 6 has been at the forefront of amplifier and effects modeling technology since the introduction of the AxSys 212 - the very first modeling amp - in 1996. After two decades of refining the Line 6 modeling engine through the POD and Vetta amp series, Line 6 once again emerges on top of the modeling mountain with the Helix family of products.
Powered by next-generation HX Modeling technology, the Helix family recreates amps, cabs, mics, and effects with accuracy and precision. Vintage and modern tube amp models give an authentic sound and feel, and are designed to interact with your playing like the originals. And unlike other modeling technologies, Line 6 has made the editing interface so intuitive that even first-timers can quickly begin creating their own patches.
Even tube sag and compression are authentic to the amps being modeled in the HX engine. The ability to create patches with a two-amp setup – each with it’s own pedalboard – is an incredible way to inspire your playing with new tones.
Even if you’re a firm believer in tube amps, you shouldn’t overlook the Line 6 Helix. The ability for every guitarist to create a tone absolutely unique to themselves is a powerful tool that many of us haven’t had access to in the past. If you’ve been on the fence about modeling amps, the Line 6 Helix will make you a believer.
