Line 6's Helix LT
Line 6's Helix LT has just been announced as the next release from the guitar tech prodigies at this year's Musikmesse, set to take place later on this week. Featuring the same hi tech HX modelling technology that can be located in the Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors, the Helix LT builds upon the foundations of its immensely popular forebears whilst bringing a selection of exciting new features to the fold.

A streamlined I/O operates harmoniously with the featured hardware configurations, working together to deliver exceptional levels of performance, dynamic output and precise control. Fitted with the critically-acclaimed HX Modelling engine, the Line 6 Helix pulls its herculean dual-DSP performance into action, which is able to recreate even the most precise of tones ranging from amps, cabs, mics and effects.

Designed with the player in mind, the Line 6 Helix LT guitar processor features a large LCD and touch-sensitive footswitch that is able to respond to even the slightest articulation. Ideal for use within a live environment, the player can unreservedly channel their energy into their performance without having to worry about the technical pitfalls of more complicated and convoluted equipment that may otherwise detract from their performance. Created with the notion of encouraging players capacity for creativity, the Helix LT allows for the player to discover and modify their tone in the heat of the moment; you don't even have to stop playing! During the pedal's edit mode you can edit any parameter you like by simply using your foot. Just select the desired block and parameter you wish to change and adjust accordingly through the use of the expression pedal.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Line 6's ingenuity and ergonomic disposition continues to extend into various other avenues.With a generous I/O integration, the player is afforded a vast selection of routing capabilities, making the task of merging the Helix Lt into your existing set up a simple and straightforward affair. Flexible for either studio or stage use, the Helix LT is compatible with with pre-existing Helix products and also offers complete guitar control integration for the notorious Variax guitar.
