The tools to quickly recreate the sound in your head, without sonic compromise.

The Line 6 Helix multi-effects guitar rack is a revolutionary guitar processor that provides authentic tube amp tones and an intuitive interface for fast editing. Its dual DSP engine accurately recreates the dynamic feel of tube amplifiers, from the bloom and compression to the power supply ripple and tube sag. Each amp model reacts like the real thing. With the Helix modeling engine, the amps, cabs, mics and effects will feel familiar to anyone who has spent time crafting guitar sounds.

Revolutionary Modeling Engine Provides Authentic Tube Amp Tones

The Helix multi-effects processor represents a breakthrough in guitar technology with its ability to recreate the dynamic feel of tube amplifiers. Its dual DSP engine provides the power to capture every nuance of tube amps, from the bloom and gooey compression to the gut punch of a powerful amp. Each stage of an amp's circuit has been analyzed and matched to the original so each model responds like the real thing. The Helix lets you load custom impulse responses to customize your rig setup.

Intuitive Interface Allows for Fast Editing

While the Helix provides massive power, it does not require a steep learning curve. Its large LCD display minimizes menu diving and provides the control you'd expect from an external editor. When it comes to tone creation, the Helix Rack is as fast as you need it to be.

Comprehensive I/O and Routing Capabilities Integrate External Pedals and Gear

The Helix offers flexible audio routing thanks to its dynamically allocated DSP. Its four effects loops allow you to connect four separate pedal chains or split them up as inputs and outputs. Combined with four stereo paths, you can process multiple instruments at once, send wet and dry signals to different places, and create integrated systems using digital and analog I/O.

Powerful Master Controller Sends Commands to Control Entire Guitar Rig

As an advanced guitar processor, the Helix can become the command center for your entire rig. Easily integrate traditional pedals and hardware to create a hybrid rig using the best of digital and analog. With MIDI, the Helix Rack offers more flexibility than any other multi-effects units. In addition to real-time control, it can send up to six commands at patch recall to control external gear. With digital I/O, word clock sync, three expression pedals and amp switching, the Helix Rack is built to control any size guitar rig.
