Helix. Great pro peice of kit!

griller, 11.02.2018
I've only had my Helix for 3 days but have set up a couple of patches and done 3 live gigs.
So far, I am blown away.
I just go into the fx return to use the power amp section of my amp. I don't want or need to use the 4 cable method as the preamp doesn't offer anything that the Helix doesn't do better.
My needs are pretty basic. I use the volume on my guitar to go from clean to crunch to lead. I use reverb and switch on delay for solos. For specific songs, I use chorus or tremolo.
The amp models respond exactly as I need them to when using the volume on my guitar.
It took about 5 minutes to work out the user interface as it is extremely intuitive. Even when using live it's really easy and quick to make changes to any setting on the fly.
It sounds amazing through the Blug but I'm seriously considering getting a Line 6 L2t frfr to use instead.
For acoustic guitar players, the Helix is also outstanding! I have loaded some third-party IRs and can't put my acoustic down. be careful its addictive!
Looking forward to a long and fun time with this beast and for me, it is the most rewarding gear purchase I've ever made.

Very good, waiting to get excellent

Sami H., 14.11.2015
Like many electronic devices these days, helix also runs on a software platform. Because it is very new, there's a whole lot of bugs and improvements to wait. Good thing is that line6 is working all the time and has already released a couple of updates.

If you want to get crazy with kahillion effects the helix will run out of dsp power quite fast - but for "reasonable" basic setups it delivers muchos buenos!

The unit as a whole is very versatile - works well for so many more things than only processing guitar sounds. If you're after everything helix could be used for, I can't see any competitors. For making only guitar-sounds I'd go for something else. I think the guitarcabinets on helix are a bit dark to my taste but that is fixed via IR-support. Just load in ownhammers for a bliss!

The UI is quite fantastic. Best I've seen so far. Very fast to learn and use.

Would I recommend Helix? Deffinately yes.
