Helix offers incredible power, flexibility, and control. HX Modeling uses dual-DSP processing to deliver the nuanced character that exists in the original classics, giving you natural bloom, compression, modulation, and honk on some models, as well as intense gain and breakup in others. Not only do HX Models sound and feel real, Helix is a comprehensive master controller for your guitar system, with extensive I/O that provides unprecedented flexibility for studio and stage. Touch-sensitive footswitches, customizable scribble strips, and a large color LCD make the user experience faster and more efficient.

Feels and sounds like analog gear. When it comes to authentic sound and feel, Helix Floor and Helix Rack 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. Helix HX Hybrid cabs 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. Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors also let 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 Helix processors, each stage of an amp’s circuitry has been measured and matched back to the original, so that each model reacts and interacts with the player as expected. This level of dynamic circuit detail extends into areas such as power supply ripple, individual tube sag, and control over B+ voltages.
So intuitive you already know how to use it. Massive power traditionally comes with a steep learning curve, but Helix processors are remarkably easy to use. Touch-sensitive footswitches allow you to select an effect block or other item for editing simply by tapping it with your finger. A large 6.2-inch, 800x480-pixel LCD eliminates complex menu-diving and provides the same level of control you might expect from an external editor. Colored LED rings and customizable scribble strips complete the user interface, letting you know what each footswitch is doing at a glance.
Capacitive Touch Footswitches
Instantaneous editing. Simply touch a footswitch to instantly jump to any block and quickly adjust a parameter or assign controllers. So fast, you can comfortably assign any item to a switch in three seconds.
Unmatched Routing Capabilities
Four effects loops provide limitless flexibility. Connect individual pedals or pedal chains to the four mono or two stereo effects sends and receives to create switchable loops, or assign the effects loops to discrete signal paths to process multiple instruments simultaneously, or split the sends and receives up and use them as freely-assignable inputs and outputs. This unparalleled flexibility allows you to create large integrated systems incorporating both digital and analog I/O.
Powerful Master Controller
Complete MIDI integration. When you need to incorporate external devices via MIDI, Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors offer maximum flexibility. In addition to powerful real time MIDI control, they can send up to six separate commands at preset recall, enabling you to, for example, change a preset on a synth, start a sequencer, and turn up a fader on an external digital mixer with a single press of a footswitch. And with their two expression pedal inputs, CV/Expression out, and external amp switching, Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors can serve as the command center for any size rig.
