In June 2015 Line 6 released the groundbreaking and award winning Helix multi-effects processing unit, giving modern guitarists more options and control over their sound than they'd ever had before, packed into a sleek black chassis with plenty of lights, bells and whistles.
Line 6 have gone and made the world's most powerful guitar processing platform much more accessible with the Line 6 Helix LT Multi Effects Processor, a slightly smaller and much more budget-friendly alternative!

Authentic HX Modelling
The Helix LT offers much greater DSP power than any other multi-fx processor in it's class, thanks largely to the HX Modeling engine. Accurately recreate the authentic sound and feel of vintage tube amplification with sounds captured, measured and matched to the real thing! The processing power involved here is phenomenal, with industry experts instantly recognising the different combinations of mics, cabs and effects on show.
You can also load custom impulse responses to fully personalise your rig setup. The audio quality is uncompromised at any output level, giving you up to 123 dB to play around with, and ensuring an authentic and responsive playing experience.
Intuitive Ease of Use
One of the stand-out features of the original Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors was the clear and intuitive interface - a large and easy-to-navigate main screen, large coloured LCD's laying out the entire signal chain, and instant access to amp and effects parameters. Needless to say that this is all still present in the Helix LT, as well as the same touch-sensitive footswitches, coloured LED rings to let you know what is assigned to each footswitch at a quick glance, and four stereo paths per preset for those complex patch routing scenarios!
Keep Playing While You Tweak
Part of Line 6's goal in the creation of the Helix product line was to give guitarists the option of interacting with the technology in more intuitive ways. Because of the Helix LT's unique design you won't have to stop playing to adjust any of the settings - simply select the Pedal Edit Mode footswitch and edit any of the parameters you're using by selecting the block then adjusting the value via the expression pedal!
Robust I/O Configuration
The extensive routing capabilities of the Helix LT's I/O compliment are second to none. Integrate this effects processor easily into any live performance rig or studio setup, and make use of the L6 Link to enable a smooth digital integration with compatible Line 6 products (such as StageSource speakers). There's even an exclusive Variax gutiar integration module, to give you even more control and creative inspiration, with instant model and tuning recall, effects control and power for Variax Guitars (such as the new Variax Shuriken).
Easy to Use Mac/PC Editor
As with all of the Helix family hardware, the presets of the Helix LT can be created and edited using Helix Edit software for Mac and PC. With this software you can easily drag and drop amps, cabs and effects into your interface to build and fully customise your own complex signal chains. The software also allwos you to quickly reorganise, rename, edit tones and modify Performance View labels, viisualising every detail of your editing workflow instantly from the comfort of your computer.
Preset Compatibility with Helix Products
The Helix LT presets are fully compatible with all existing Helix products, including Helix Native plug-in software. This makes the 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 processors.
Regular Feature Enhancement
Helix LT customers can expect regular firmware updates - which add amp and effect models, features to improve flexibility and workflow, and other software improvements - in line with Line 6's recognition of the ever evolving needs of the modern guitar player.
