Line 6 HELIX-LT Multi-Effects Guitar Pedalboard
The streamlined Helix® LT boasts the same dual-SHARC® processing and professional-quality HXTM Modeling found in the flagship Helix Floor and Helix Rack amp and effects processors—outperforming all other products in its class. Features include a player-friendly interface with a large color LCD, capacitive-touch footswitches for easy editing, an onboard expression pedal, analog and digital I/O, and a USB audio interface.
Helix® guitar processors have set a new standard for speed and ease of use to craft authentic and responsive guitar tones. Each product in the Helix family provides a familiar approach to tone creation, with a straightforward and intuitive interface that eliminates complex menu diving, and replaces it with incredibly easy interaction. Helix products deliver extensive flexibility for a variety of applications, enabling you to take tones from studio to stage—and back again.
Powered by next-generation HXTM Modeling technology, the Helix family recreates amps, cabs, mics, and effects with accuracy and precision. Vintage and modern tube amp models give an authentic sound and feel, and are designed to interact with your playing like the originals.
Powerful Dual-DSP HX Modeling
Large 6.2”, 800x480-Pixel LCD Screen
62 Amps, 37 Cabs, 16 Microphones, and 104 Effects
Capacitive Footswitches. Touch to Edit, Hold to Assign, Press to Engage
Up to 2 Expression Pedals, External Amp Switching, and Deep MIDI Control
Authentic analog sound and feel.
Helix guitar processors represent a giant leap forward in modeling technology. Dual-DSPs provide massive power to accurately recreate the sonic characteristics and full dynamic response of classic and modern amplifiers and effects.
HX HYBRID CABS
A new approach to speaker cabinet modeling.
The Helix HX Hybrid cabs featured in the Helix LT processor represent a new approach to the speaker cabinet capture process. They provide the same resolution and low-end accuracy as a 2048-point or higher Impulse Response, while only using roughly the same amount of DSP power as a 1024-point IR. A choice of 16 different microphones and 23 recording distances provides additional sonic flexibility and real-time dynamic control. The Helix LT processor also lets you load custom impulse responses, allowing you to personalize your rig even further.
CAPTURING EACH AMP COMPONENT
Models that respond like the real thing.
With the Helix LT processor, each amp component has been captured, measured, and matched to the real thing. This level of dynamic circuit detail extends into areas such as power supply ripple, individual tube sag, and control over B+ voltages. With uncompromised Helix sound quality and 123 dB of dynamic range, the Helix LT processor ensures an authentic and responsive playing experience.
CAPTURING SPECIFIC EFFECTS COMPONENTS
Effects models with unprecedented authenticity.
HX Modeling accurately recreates the behavior of even the most idiosyncratic vintage effects by modeling their individual components. The Transtronic process emulates the behavior of virtually any germanium or silicon transistor diode, making it possible to authentically recreate fuzz, distortion, and other pedals once considered too persnickety to convincingly model. The Throbber is a "virtual lightbulb" that mimics the decidedly nonlinear behavior of the small incandescent bulb and four photocells inside the original 1960's Uni-Vibe pedals that are essential to their unique sound and vibe. And the Bucketier chip and Panda circuit are virtual recreations of the Bucket Brigade (BBD) chips and compander (compression/expansion) circuitry found in many old-school analog delay pedals. Accurately modeling the inherent quirkiness of vintage analog delay pedals at the component level endows HX analog delay effects with all of their lo-fi majesty.
Fast and intuitive tone creation.
The Helix LT processor features 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, as well as displaying footswitch assignments and status while in Performance mode.
CAPACITIVE TOUCH FOOTSWITCHES
Simply touch a footswitch to instantly jump to any block and quickly adjust a parameter or assign controllers. The process is so fast you can comfortably assign any item to a switch in three seconds.
