Great but not perfect
allanjelly 24.01.2020
I have been using HX Stomp for the past 6 months and have some remarks.
1). It's really well-built, has tons of features & the sound quality is really professional - really nothing to complain about.
2). It has some added uses - about which you might have not known:
- it is a great practice tool - on its own - you can just plug-in your headphones to it and have a good time practicing while using the simulation of whatever amp you like
- it is a really good recording interface (via USB) with ASIO/midi etc.

2). It has some minor flaws which I would like you to be aware of:
- the quality of effects is not even:
- time-based effects (reverbs, delays, vibratos, choruses etc.) are simply superb;
- amp simulations - are really great - but require lots of effort to sound right - they just don't work like real tube amps which tend to sound ok at all the settings. These simulated amps CAN sound great - provided you found the settings which suit your guitar, pickups and playstyle. And believe me there are a lot of settings that can be set wrong.
- noise gate - it' simply is there - but it's really nothing sophisticated or special
- looper - it's there but the buffer is really short
- overdrives/distortions - I still prefer the real counterparts. Maybe I still did not find the correct settings? For me they do not sound ok - they do not clean up as they should and the tone/texture is simply is not there

- you really cannot use a standard power source from your pedalboard - you have to use the one provided with the unit - it is a 3000mA source. Not a big problem, but adds some mess to your pedalboard.
- you have to be good at word puzzles to use this one - due to copyright issues - example? What is "$$ for nada" preset?
Dire Straits - Money for Nothing :-) What is "2/3 beards"? - ZZ Top
Sometimes you will guess sometimes you will not - but this does not make the life easier.

Perfect pocket solution for recording, rehreasing and live playing
BananaGuy 13.08.2020
Ok Here is little story. I've tried lot of units. I originaly started with pod hd500x back when it was the hottest modeling unit out there. Then I started to experiment with other units and effects, went through Boss GT-100, TC electronics nova system, analog effects pedalboard, back to GT-100 and then Helix and Helix LT came out. It was perfect. Had everything I ever needed but it was little on the large side of floor units. So I sold my Helix LT and tried smaller Boss GT-1000, which was, for me as Boss fan, one of the greatest let downs ever. I was back with large and for my three and half (ambient clean/drone sound, overdrive, hi-gain) simple presets overly capable Helix LT. So what now?

Long story short, I sold the LT and bought this little piece of greatness.

There are few things worth mentioning if you are still deciding on buying:

1) It is built like tank. No bendy, soft sheet but thick casted metal stombox
2) Sound quality of amp models is, as with whole Helix family, exceptional
3) Controls and UI are amazingly intuitive. You really don't need to use PC to create sounds (except for updloading IRs)

And some little flaws I just mention so I won't sound like payed Line6 fanboy:
1) It gets warm after some time of use - lots of circuitry cramped in small metal box
2) Some of the effect models are little lacking compared to others
3) Powersource is almost as big as the unit itself and you can't use your pedalboards powersource out of the box thanks to HX stomps power demands and inverted polarity. Might be issue if you want to use it as part of bigger pedalboard.
4) It really could use some controls cover or software lock to prevent accidental switching when you misstep.

I use it for both home recording and live situations and if you are looking for all-in-one pocket solution or want to expand your pedalboard look no more. This thing is no-brainer.

Awesome product. Changed my all analog rig.
nrozinha 13.11.2020
Hi, first of all i want to say that i fought over having digital stuff in my rig. I was a tube amp guy, expensive boutique pedals, expensive pedalboard, good cables, stereo routing, etc etc. But the truth was that i was always afraid of the amount things that could fail in a live situation. Unfortunately that happened and it was really frustrating. So after years i finnally decided to give a try and i bought the Stomp. The goal was to have a reliable pedalboard, with great sound, no more tons of cables, something almost plug and play. The first impression when i got the Stomp was how tiny but sturdy and weel built it was. Also very good looking. i tried some factory presets trough the PA system and i knew instantly that it would soung as good as my analog rig. Of course that some tweaking had to be made but he sound was there. At the present moment and after some rehearsals done and exploring the Stomp i have to say that my rig chanved completely. Now it?s Guitar into STOMP, midi switcher that i had already and an expression pedal (very needed in order to have flexibility, options and to take advantage of the full optential of the Stomp) straight into de mixer and PA systems. No more Amp, cabinet, pedalboard, mics and spare tool kit. It?s my guitar and my case with the Stomp in it. Simple, light, reliable and with a 3D sound as i?ve never had!
Also the software is really really user friendly. One of the best if not the best.
Don?t compare this with Helix floor. Their purposes are different. The only downside is that right now you only have 6 blocks. i can manage with that perfectly. Line 6 has confirmed that is going to release an update which allows 8 blocks. It?s going to be awesome and enough for 98% of players.
And the price for this little and powerfull tool is a must. So much money spent in boutique...not worthy.

Perfect for my compact pedal board build!
Rain214 27.08.2019
There's really nothing more to say about this amazing HX Stomp. Before I have this Mooer pedals for my modulations, it sounds good also and very small which is I like because I want to have a small pedal board that is easy to carry when travelling. But I decided to change it with this HX Stomp as it has a lot more to offer than just the modulations. It's Amp and Cab simulations are so awesome, that is also another main reason why I got this baby. I used the FX loop to integrate it with my Flyrig RK5, and Dunes OD and all the modulations, compressor, and Amp&Cab sims from the HX Stomp make everything sound so complete. And the tone from my pedal board is really really awesome. Tweaking the HX stomp is really easy but it is much easier with the the software that can be downloaded on the Line6 site called HX Edit.

Pros:
-The Stomp is very well built, really cool looking device and it does what it should do, you can also use 4 cable method on it, Stereo or Mono and integrate it with the existing analog pedals on your board by using the FX loop's Send and Return.
-Not that heavy and it doesn't feel cheap.
-Value for money.
-The possibilities on this device are endless.

Cons:
-The power adapter is nice but not good position if you want to plug it under your pedal board, that is why I got the current doubler so that I can plug it in my existing pedal board power supply. It says that it needs 3A but it runs under 1A when it is powered on so I use to 9v on my board's PSU with both 500ma each isolated and it works perfectly.

It’s awesome.
Reckonhighs 05.06.2019
Pros. 1. Amp simulation is just beyond for the price. The unit support custom IR loading, for high gain sounds I definitely recommend doing that, but bluesy, crunchy tones and cleans sparkle out of the box. 2. Recording with it is a dream: I use USB 5 channel for the dry signal and USB1/2 stereo for the processed sound. Dry signal can be later ‘reamped’ with Helix Native (discounted with this unit). 3. It has four inputs, no XLR, but for that I use external preamp. 4. It’s small and light.
Cons. 1. Adjusting the presets on the unit is tricky, I use HX Edit for desktop. 2. Looper handling requires crazy fast double tap. 3. Bulky power supply. 4. 6 blocks per preset sometimes are not enough: almost every amp I use requires additional EQ block, that means 3 blocks are taken by IR, EQ and the amp itself.

Portable and powerful
Jack4863 04.04.2021
A great piece of gear to help minimize board size, but keep the power and flexibility of a bigger pedal collection. The onboard amp models sound great, and the recording options via USB are top notch too. The fact that you are able to record both dry and wet signal via USB, and perform internal routing for re-amping makes it a great tool for experimenting with your sound in recordings. If it was busted (which is not likely, based on the build quality), I would definitely replace it.

Like a Swiss knife
Francesco b 02.01.2021
I wanted a all-in-one machine to play guitar and the HX Stomp has been the right choice. Amps simulations are pretty good, with a lot of hystoric amps and more recent machines.
There a lot of effects (od, fuzz, distortion, modulation etc.) and the new firmware 3.0 is a step beyond. Now you can get up to 8 blocks (until the dsp can run them), wich was the more requested feature by customers.
The interface is really simple to understand and the construction quality is remarkable (well made plastic knobs and solid metallic chassis). If you need an exp volume or two more switches you can add them plugging them easily.
You can use it as a all-in-one machine or a multieffects stomp. At this price it's probably the best gear you can get

Amazing how far we've come
Bedroom warrior 07.05.2020
I'm using the Line6 HX Stomp to 1) drive my speakers, 2) as an effects unit in the effects loop of my amp, and 3) as a silent practicing tool with my computer. All of this at the same time, which is incredible.

The unit itself is fantastic. The amp models are amazing, cabinets are great, ability to upload impulses is also spectacular. Sounds great!

Three areas where I would still be careful. First, practicing with headphones is SUPER dependent on the headphones. It sounded terrible until I got a pair of Sennheiser 650s, thanks to the open back and high quality speakers. If you want to use it for that, calculate extra costs for good headphones.

Second, my unit has frozen once or twice, forcing me to factory reset. I'm pretty sure this is due to a driver conflict with the computer, but still something to keep in mind. It is a super complex piece of kit, so you CAN run into issues with your other hardware.

Third, this thing can do so many things that the learning curve is very steep. It took me a few weeks before I found sounds that worked for me.

All the effects you will ever need!
Kaarel Raud 06.03.2020
I am more than pleased with my HX Stomp. The convenience of having an expansive pedalboard's worth of effects in one compact box is incredible - for most gigs and practice sessions, I simply keep the HX Stomp in my gig bag and use it as my entire rig. The top-quality amp simulation means that I haven't had to use a heavy and finicky traditional guitar amp at all. The only criticism I have is that the finish on the pedal isn't the most solid compared to some other guitar pedals and due to being carried around so much it has acquired some small visual blemishes rather easily. Otherwise, I heavily recommend the HX Stomp for all guitarists and bassists looking for the ultimate pedal experience.
