Line 6 Helix Floorboard Limited Edition Platinum Amp and Effects Processor Pedal

Your Helix will stand out with Platinum! Line 6's Helix Platinum Floor has a limited-edition finish and the same great on-board amp and effect modeling.

The Platinum Line 6 Helix(R) Floor is the limited edition version of the flagship amp and multi-effects processor from Line 6. Helix Floor leverages dual-SHARC(R) processing and HX Modeling to deliver the authentic sound and feel of vintage and modern amps, cabinets, microphones, and effects. Meanwhile, that same processing power lets you create countless tones that simply don't exist in the analog world.

The Helix Floor amp and effects processor also boasts the most intuitive and player-friendly user interface on the market. It includes a full-color LCD screen, ergonomically arranged controls, capacitive-touch footswitches, customizable scribble strips, and an onboard expression pedal. Four independent internal signal paths and extensive analog and digital I/O combine to provide nearly limitless signal-routing flexibility.

The Helix Floor processor can also integrate external hardware devices, becoming the master controller for your entire rig, and third-party impulse responses (IRs) can be loaded to further personalize your sound. Plus, Helix Floor presets are compatible with all other Helix family devices--including the Helix Native plugin.

AUTHENTIC MODELING
HX modeling digitally mirrors the circuitry of analog amps and effects, component by component. Every model sounds and feels realistic, including such notoriously hard-to-model devices as vintage fuzz and modulation effects. Simply put, the Helix Floor amp and effects processor nails the analog vibe.
PHENOMENAL EASE read more OF USE
This massive power and flexibility might suggest a steep learning curve, but Helix Floor is incredibly simple to use. Capacitive-touch footswitches let you jump to any block, adjusting parameters or assigning controllers with a mere finger tap. The 6.2" (157mm) LCD display eliminates complex menu-diving, providing all the control you'd expect from an external editor. Color-coded LED rings, along with customizable scribble strips, convey effect status and footswitch assignments at a glance.
COMPREHENSIVE CONNECTIVITY
The Helix Floor amp and effects processor offers extensive I/O connectivity, routing capabilities, and MIDI integration. Its effects sends/returns (four mono or two stereo) can integrate hardware pedals or pedal chains as switchable loops. They also provide additional inputs and outputs, letting you process multiple instruments simultaneously and configure routing schemes such as wet/dry/wet and 4-Cable Method. Also included: three expression pedal/footswitch inputs, external amp-switching capability, L6 LINK connector for Powercab(R) Plus active guitar speaker system integration, VDI Variax guitar connector, and CV output. This unparalleled flexibility permits integrated systems incorporating both digital and analog I/O.
EXPRESSION PEDAL/PEDAL EDIT MODE
The onboard expression pedal controls volume, wah, or any combination of parameters. Hands-free Pedal Edit mode allows you to edit any block parameter with your feet.
SNAPSHOTS
The Snapshots feature lets you to create up to eight variations within a single preset and seamlessly transition between them without experiencing the audio dropouts and disruption of delay and reverb trails that normally occur when switching between DSP-intensive presets. Enable and bypass effects blocks, change amp and effects settings, and much more--all within the same preset.
PLAYER-FRIENDLY MAC AND PC EDITOR
The free HX Edit app mirrors the Helix Floor processor interface. You can drag and drop amp/effect blocks, build signal chains, customize footswitch labels, and adjust parameters via dedicated knobs and sliders from your computer screen.

I have used many multi effects processors for guitat throughout the years. The Helix is by far my favorite. The tonal possibilties and routing options blow my mind. It has some of the most realistic amp sims I have ever heard. It is easy to use and a joy to work. With the HX edit tone editor my work flow couldn't be simpler. If you want great tone and a plethora of sounds from twanging country to insane Djent this is the ultimate tone machine.
