Line 6 Helix LT Modeling Electric Guitar Processor
In stock at Zzounds.com
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 ModelingPowered 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-UseThe 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 TweakPart 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 ConfigurationFeaturing 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 EditorLike 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 ProductsFeaturing 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 EnhancementLine 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.

Reviews From Buyers
I have owned a pod hd500x, x3live, and an atomic amplifire. I have also owned many great tube amps from Mesa, Orange, Marshall, Hiwatt, Vox, and Rivera. In my search for tone I found great sounds out of all of those amps but nothing that I could stick with as my styles of music changed. The Pods gave me the flexibility but I could never get a great tone. The Amplifire gave me the tones but lacked the effects and had a slightly annoying digital artifact that I could hear as notes decayed. At first when I got the Helix I was ready to send it back after an hour. After taking some time digging into the adjustments and watching some youtube videos. I started to get some great tones out of and now that I have a better understanding of the workflow I can have a great tone for any style in minutes when I used to spend hours dialing in the hd500. The icing on the cake was learning the snapshot function. I have snapshots for each song on my bands set list and it has made the pedal dance obsolete.
