There is a crazy amount of customization involved here and should prove useful for just about any genre. If you know a thing or two about your frequencies/eq you can really dial in a perfect tone between eq controls, noise gates, distortion pedals etc all inside. The presets are solid and easily adjustable to your guitar/cab setup too if you dont want to dive into the abyss. Outside of the sounds, you can use the Helix as a pedal board, amp switcher, and run other pedals into the fx loop etc. Honestly, the best all round purchase I've made in a decade.

I have had this now for about six months or so. I have spent a lot of time learning how to set it up and still don't know everything. Unless you know a lot about different amps and effects expect to do a lot of learning. I was definitely disappointed the first few months, and even now I still struggle to get certain sounds that I like. There is a lot of information out there to help though, and a lot of presets available through the line six forums. Even with that help you will still need to tweak presets as they generally don't sound that great as they are. You need to decide what you are going to use for speakers and what sounds best and as far as I know, studio monitors are the best for home use. Overall the quality is quite good and the Helix Edit software makes life easier when building presets. The preamp blocks are not that good in my opinion. There are better cabinets out there than the stock cabinets and some are free.I also think it's hard to get a good clean over driven sound but maybe that's me...but for the most part it delivers. I would consider other products both software and hardware out there that compete in the same space but I think this is easy to use compared to the Fractal unit so I have read.

I would have to say this is one of the coolest pedals I've ever had the opportunity to play. If you're worried about not getting that tube tone or that string or the volume up and down control through this Helix LT you're mistaken it does it all just like a tube amp and your pedalboard the only other thing that you'll do after you buy it is sell all your tube amps in your pedals the thing is absolutely awesome.

Being a tube guy for many years I've owned Mesa boogies/Peaveys/Engl and Orange amps and they were all great but something is to be said about how versatile and how crisp this thing sounds. Does it sound like a real tube amp?Sorta Kinda.... Does it sound really really good? Yes it does. Consistent tone through my studio monitors or through big PA and is extremely Easy to use with so many onboard effects to use its actually kind of overwhelming. The ease of use(awesome interface), good selection of amps/effects, plug in options and the ability to load custom IRs easily makes this In my opinion the best all around modeler out there not to mention how easy this makes home recording! All I can say is this is the best purchase of musical gear I think I have ever made in my life. Line 6 you've turned this Spider hater into a Helix Fan Boy and i'm so happy with my helix and don't see myself buying another Amp any time soon. For reference I play 7 String Prog metal and the Archtype Model is fire.

So I've only owned it for a full day now but all I can say is wow. I own a Pod HD Pro and a Firehawk and the Helix is lightyears ahead if either one of those. The clarity and touch response is amazing. If you were like me, wondering if the sound quality is that much better than the Firehawk? It definitely is!

I have owned an HD400 and HD500x. Both were OK but I found it difficult to get a decent tone out of them without TONS of tweaking. Then setting consistant output volumes between tones was another issue. Welcome Helix... Super easy to get a GREAT tone out of and a pleasure to work with. I have it paired with a James Tyler Variax and a Line 6 full range PA speaker. The rest of the guys in the band mentioned how great the tones were day one. Acoustic models now sound like they should, etc... Very Impressed! Glad I took the plunge!

I have only been trying to learn to play some guitar for three years for my own amusement. I like ACDC/Joan Jett rock kind of distortion, buzz and sustain and bought several pedals and amps looking for it and never came close to what I was looking for!!! This thing sounds amazing to me and I have so far only plugged it into my inexpensive Mustang 2 amp. It has all kinds of clean and distorted sounds in it and you can make your own too. Dan at L&Q in Regina put me into this and everything else I have - excellent to deal with!!! Worth checking it out!!!

Through an amo the Helix simply sounds awful . If you run lineout to the amp in it cleans up somewhat, but then you are limited to what is useful between amp models and effects. All OD and Distortion is grainy or a blur leaving string separation very poor. For the price it should sound and feel warmer and more realistic with great string separation. Way too digitial!!

The Helix is excellent in terms of ease of use and the ability to draw upon pretty much all the amps, cabs, and effects you could want. One of the best parts about Helix is the active and supportive community. Be sure to join the Line 6 Helix user group on FB. If making your own patches isn't your thing or you are just starting out, there are lots of great pre-made ones on Line 6 CustomTone to choose from. The only reason I give this one a 3.5 for quality is that there is a noticeable physical build quality difference between the LT and Floor (full) version.

I bought my self one. when I plugged and played right out of the box, I was stunned. I always loved the sound of valve amps and analogue pedals and helix has got the same sound and feel. I am very satisfied with my purchase. The amp models sound so real and dynamic. I couldn't believe myself. Helix LT could do great live, home or studio. I tell ya, you wont be disappointed.

I was on the fence for a while on this one. I had just purchased an EVH 5150 50w head (great amp btw) and then all of a sudden out of nowhere, L6 releases the LT. I always wanted the Helix, but not being a gigging musician, couldn't justify the cost for the full model. After a couple months, reading rave reviews and watching a ton of youtube reviews, I decided to sell off my rig and just go with the helix. Am I ever happy I did. This is perfect for me. It's got any effect I could ever need, and the sounds you can get out of this thing with minimal tweaking is amazing. Not only that, but it keeps getting better. L6 is commited to this product and the updates are regular and new models keep getting added and current ones tweaked to sound even better. You really can't go wrong with this product.

Best piece of gear I own. The quality of the tones and the response to volume and pick attack are fantastic. I only regret not getting it in 2015. Buy it now so you can enjoy ot sooner.

Had this unit for a little over a week now and I keep finding things I like about it. Paired with my Variax Standard and there isn't anything stopping me. Big thanks to the staff at L and M on 43st in Saskatoon, made ordering this in for me a breeze.
