Easy Access, Intuitive Control
Like its namesakes, the Helix Floor and Helix Rack processors, the Helix LT interface is pretty easy to navigate, especially when you consider the complex routing scenarios available for each patch. And what could be easier than hands-free programming? Featuring the same touch-sensitive footswitches as Helix Floor and Helix Control, the Helix LT makes it possible to keep your hands on your instrument while using your feet to control touch-sensitive footswitches for editing. Colored footswitch rings and a generously sized LCD display ensure you won’t need a GPS to find your way around and the layout is so instinctive, you’ll be tweaking your way to flawless tone in seconds.
Look Ma! No Hands!
Aside from relieving you from having to bend down for every adjustment, you can actually continue playing as you make modifications. From fine-tuning an effect to rebuilding an entire patch, deep editing is a breeze using your feet via the Helix LT’s 12-footswitch interface. All parameters are accessible as you navigate using the footswitches and change values with the expression pedal, all while playing. And you know how sometimes the patch that you set up at home doesn’t sound quite the same on stage? Feel free to edit – even mid-song!
The Ins and Outs
Overflowing with routing options, the Helix LT affords you a wealth of possibilities. Streamlined inputs and outputs provide seamless integration with L6 Link, enabling easy one-cable connectivity between a variety of Line 6 products. Variax series guitars will benefit from instant model and tuning recall in addition to being powered by the Helix LT, and everyone enjoys the flexibility of two freely-assignable effects loops and four stereo signal paths per preset, all cleverly implemented in an efficient layout. The Helix LT’s fine complement of I/O makes for easy assimilation into your live rig or your studio setup.
Quite a bit, actually. The Helix LT’s chassis is compact enough to toss in your bag and robust enough to withstand the demands of the road, or the air, as this is the perfect traveling-tone solution for fly-away gigs.
Sonically, there's some great stuff here. 62 Amps, 37 Cabs, 16 Microphones, and 104 Effects ensure, no matter what the gig is, your tonal needs are covered.
Helix LT is sure to be a favorite of Helix Rack owners taking their tone out for a spin for live shows, as the presets for all three Helix units are compatible.
Of course, the Helix LT patches can be edited and stored within the easy-to-use Helix Edit software, which is Mac® and PC compatible. Your variations are endless.
The Helix LT is perfect for the guitarist wanting to access the power of Helix, at a more affordable price-point.
