Overview

The Line 6 Helix LT guitar processor features the same advanced HX Modeling technology found in the Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors. With a streamlined I/O complement and hardware configuration, the Helix LT guitar processor delivers the highest levels of performance, flexibility and control in its class. The award-winning HX Modeling engine leverages powerful dual-DSP performance to capture and recreate amps, cabs, mics and effects with authenticity and responsiveness. A large LCD and touch-sensitive footswitches with color LED rings enable easy usage and fast, smart control. The generous I/O complement, with extensive routing capabilities, makes it easy to integrate Helix LT into an existing rig and provides flexibility for a wide range of stage and studio applications. Helix LT has preset compatibility with existing Helix products and also offers Variax guitar control integration. With Helix LT, the world’s most powerful guitar processing platform is now more accessible than ever before.

AUTHENTIC HX MODELING

Powered by the HX Modeling engine, Helix LT offers greater DSP power than any other multi-effects processor in its class. Tube amplifiers are recreated with authentic sound and feel—each amp component has been captured, measured and matched to the real thing. Mics, cabs and effects are recreated accurately and are designed to sound instantly recognizable if you’ve ever spent time in a studio. Helix LT also lets you load custom impulse responses to personalize your rig setup. With uncompromised Helix sound quality and 123 dB of dynamic range, Helix LT ensures an authentic and responsive playing experience.

ACCLAIMED EASE-OF-USE
The Helix LT processor delivers the advanced user experience similar to the Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors, with a clear and intuitive interface that enables fast tone creation and easy interaction—all with a minimal learning curve and the elimination of complex menu diving. A large color LCD lays out the entire signal chain and provides instant access to amp and effects parameters. Helix LT features the same touch-sensitive footswitches as Helix Floor and Helix Control, allowing you to select an effect block for editing simply by touching it. Color LED rings enable you to know what is assigned to each footswitch at a glance. Helix LT also has four stereo paths per preset, allowing you to design complex routing scenarios for each patch.

KEEP PLAYING WHILE YOU TWEAK
Part of the goal in developing the Helix family of products was to allow guitarists to interact with technology in ways that are more intuitive, making the creation of tones easier. This means you won’t have to stop playing to tweak a knob. With Pedal Edit Mode, you can edit any parameter you like using your foot; just select the block and parameter you want to change and adjust its value using the expression pedal.

ROBUST I/O CONFIGURATION
Featuring a best-in-class I/O complement with extensive routing capabilities, Helix LT provides advanced flexibility for studio and stage applications, and can be easily integrated into any live performance rig or studio setup. L6 Link connectivity enables smooth digital integration with compatible Line 6 products, including StageSource® speakers for an optimized experience when playing live. Exclusive Variax guitar integration provides even more control and creative inspiration, with instant model and tuning recall, effects control and power for Variax guitars.

EASY-TO-USE MAC/PC EDITOR
Like all hardware products in the Helix family, Helix LT presets can be created and edited using Helix Edit software for Mac and PC. The Helix Edit software allows you to drag and drop amps, cabs, and effects to build complex signal chains. Quickly reorganize, rename, edit tones and modify Performance View labels, instantly visualizing every detail of your editing workflow—all right on your computer.

PRESET COMPATIBILITY WITH HELIX PRODUCTS

Featuring the same sounds, workflow and editor as the Helix Rack and Helix Floor processors, Helix LT presets are compatible with existing Helix products, including Helix Native plug-in software. This makes Helix LT an excellent option for guitarists who want a streamlined setup for live gigs or touring, or who want a backup for their Helix Floor or Helix Rack processor.

REGULAR FEATURE ENHANCEMENT
Line 6 is committed to continuing the evolution of the Helix family and responding to the needs of guitarists. Following the path of Helix Floor and Helix Rack, Helix LT customers can expect regular firmware updates that add amp and effect models, features to improve flexibility and workflow, as well as other software improvements.

    Comments about Line 6 Helix LT Guitar Processor:

    This review is only based on my first day with the unit. I am upgrading from a HD500X. I am blown away by the quality of the amp models and effects. When I tested real amps at GC and then compared to my previous board there was always significant gap in sound quality. That is no more. Again, great sound!

    Will update my review after more exploration

    Comments about Line 6 Helix LT Guitar Processor:

    I have owned more Line 6 products then I can remember. Spider 1, Flextone, Spider Value Mk2, M9, POD, Amplifi 75, Firehawk FX and now the Helix LT. I know I'm forgetting some but you get the point.
    Now I have only scratched the surface of what this thing can do but all I can say is WOW. After about an hour playing with the interface and figuring the unit out I was hooked. Line 6 has been nailing the effects for a long time and it looks like they figured out the amps too. The modeling is STUPID GOOD. It sounds and feels like I'm playing a real amp. I A/Bed my 5150 to the helix 5150 model. The real amp won in my opinion however the Helix was just as good.
    Shelling out a grand for this wasn't in my budget so I traded in a nice tube amp, firehawk fx and some other pedals and walked away paying nothing. Now I got the best of all worlds. My amazing 5150 and compact pedalboard and my Helix which has every other amp and effect I'd ever want.
    I also want to point out that the headphone out is great. Most units phone out is pretty aweful but this sounds the same through my headphones, monitors and with my amp (4 cable method). Anyone who has a family will appreciate this more then I can describe.
    If you are on the fence do yourself a favor and just buy it. You have 45 days to play with it and if you don't like it (which is unlikely) you can return it. But beware, all you'll want to do for days and weeks after you get it is play. Hopefully you have an understanding family and they don't get to mad when your missing for weeks!

    Comments about Line 6 Helix LT Guitar Processor:

    I've come to Helix by way of an HD500x by way of an X3 Live. So I'm a long time user of Line 6 modeling tech.It took me a bit to become a fan when jumping from X3 to HD, but from HD to Helix the gains are immediate and inspiring. A zillion people have said how easy the Helix is to program. But it cannot be overstated how intuitive this this is. It's like having the real gear in front of you and fiddling with real knobs and buttons. Amps clean up linearly under guitar volume. Just like a real amp. Digging your pick into yields dynamic results. It's an amazing one stop solution to a five minute setup time.

    Comments about Line 6 Helix LT Guitar Processor:

    Ive had the HD500X for a few years. That thing took a lot of time and effort to get a good sound out of. and you had to sacrifice to fit the DSP. the helix is so easy! i had a great tone pretty much immediately. you can map all kinds of pedals to switches, and customize everything. very intuitive. i've had some of the pedals and amps that are modeled and it sounds just like the actual ones.

    Luv it so far

    By Robert

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Line 6 Helix LT Guitar Processor:

    Bought the Helix Lt to expand my sound. Working good so far. Having only one amp and sound (before the Helix) is outdated and boring and I like the new possibilities of effects, amps and tones fast as I please especially for inspiration in writing new music. Tons of great rhythm sounds but searing leads are a bit trickier (say Satriani ish) but I found it using Eq's and Ir's. Now every song can be a new and far out experience, isn't that what we're looking for anyway? No more endless turning knobs on my Mesa Boogie, the Helix can be stacked with tons of effects and amp tones at the push of one button. If you want a Mesa...buy one, if you want to launch into the future...try the Helix. Also sounds loud and clear through my active Behringer 212 PA monitor as well as my tiny fender acoustic amp. Now I grab the Helix Lt ,3 chords and Im ready for a live show with access to the widest array of possibilities.

    Great effect. Works easily direct in but not with fx loops

    By Frank

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Line 6 Helix LT Guitar Processor:

    Ordered online and picked up in store. Everything went smoothly. The product requires a considerable amount of multi effect and midi knowledge to interact with real amplifiers fx loops. If you want to plug into a power amp or PA an "go" its considerably easier

        Comments about Line 6 Helix LT Guitar Processor:

        I've been playing in bands for over 20 years. I've owned probably 50 professional tube amps from every manufacture you can think of. Every time a new digital modeling technology comes out I think to myself, maybe, then I use it live in it falls flat on its face. The helix while being extremely versatile, truly does sound accurate to the amps it is emulating, but more importantly it sounds like a real tube amp! I am running this live into the effects loop of my mesa mark V 25. I bypass the preamp this way and I'm only using the tube power amp. Then I run a second signal with a cabinet in emulator to the mains. It sounds amazing! Highly recommend!

        Only had time to hear presets at this point. With that being said, I can hear the potential of this unit.
        I'll update at a later time. So far, I'm glad I made the purchase
