Product Description

Helix Rack represents a new way of thinking about guitarists and technology, and gives creative musicians the tools to quickly recreate the sound they hear their head, without sonic compromise. Helix Rack is a new kind of guitar processor: it’s not only a tour-grade rack mounted multi-effect processor that sounds and feels authentic, it’s also the most comprehensive master controller for guitar systems ever built.

Start by recreating the tones in your head with the new HX modeling engine - the new amps, cabs, mics, and effects will feel familiar to anyone who has ever spent time in the studio getting the best guitar sounds from both vintage and modern gear. Have a pile of oddball pedals that you rely on for your personal sounds? No problem.

Take advantage of the most comprehensive I/O and routing capabilities ever built into a multi-effect and easily integrate them into the Helix Rack environment. Once connected, create custom setups that make your external pedals feel like they’re all under the hood. Whether you spend your time in the studio or on the stage, Helix Rack is the next-generation guitar processor you’ve been waiting for.

Line 6 Helix Rack Dual DSP Audio Engine Guitar Processor Features

  • Dual DSP-powered HX modeling engine with 4 discrete stereo signal paths, 45 amps, 30 cabs, 16 mics and 70 effects
  • Imports 3rd party 1024/2048 cab IR’s (impulse responses)
  • Large 6.2 inch 800x480-pixel LCD display
  • Extensive I/O for seamless integration with your entire rig - 10 inputs 12 outputs (including four fx loops), plus 8-in/8-out USB audio interface
  • Up to 3 expression pedals, expression toe switch input, CV/Expression out, external amp switching and deep MIDI control
  • AES/EBU and SPDIF digital I/O with Wordclock sync
  • Industry-leading 123dB of dynamic range on the guitar input, for tremendous depth and ultra-low noise
  • Tour Grade construction – 3RU rack enclosure with optional foot-based controller
It feels and sounds like your analog gear
When it comes down to authentic sound and feel, Helix Rack represents a giant leap forward for guitar technology. The dual-DSP engine provides massive power to accurately recreate the dynamic feel of tube amplifiers, not just their sonic fingerprint. Each stage of an amp’s circuit has been measured and matched back to the original, so that each model reacts and interacts just like the real thing.

This level of dynamic circuit detail extends into areas like power supply ripple, individual tube sag, and control over B+ voltages. Once these elements are captured, you get classic bloom and gooey compression on some amps, and a powerful gut punch on others. Helix Rack also lets you load custom impulse responses, allowing you to personalize your rig setup.

So intuitive you already know how to use it
Massive power traditionally comes with a steep learning curve, but Helix Rack challenges that way of thinking. The large 6.2-inch 800x480-pixel LCD display all but eliminates menu diving and provides the same level of control you would expect from an external editor. When it comes to creating tones, Helix Rack is as fast as you are.

Speed up your editing with Helix Control
Helix Rack can be controlled by almost any MIDI-capable device, but adding Helix Control gives you the same innovative capabilities found in the floor based Helix, and this means that - for the very first time - you won’t have to stop playing to tweak a knob. With Pedal Edit Mode, you can edit any parameter you like using your foot: simply select the block that you want to tweak, and its parameters spill out onto the Helix Control footswitches. Select a parameter, and tweak the value using one of three optional expression pedals.

Helix Rack with Helix Control is the fastest tone creator of its kind on the planet. But that’s only part of the story – it’s also the most flexible. Helix Rack has FOUR stereo paths per preset, allowing you to design complex routing scenarios for each patch. Creating variations on wet and dry routing schemes is as easy as loading a template or tweaking the joystick, and using the onboard effects models in conjunction with the 4 freely-assignable effects loops means that the tonal possibilities are truly huge.

Control of your entire rig
As the most advanced guitar processor ever made, Helix Rack can become the nerve center for your entire guitar rig. Easily integrate traditional effects pedals and other hardware into your environment, creating a seamless hybrid rig that incorporates the best of what software and hardware have to offer.

Helix Rack has the most flexible audio routing ever seen on a guitar processor, thanks to its dynamically allocated DSP.

Use the four effects loops to connect four separate pedal chains, or split them up and use them as freely-assignable inputs and outputs. In combination with four stereo paths, this means that you can process multiple instruments at once, send wet and dry signals to different places, and create large integrated systems that take advantage of both digital and analog I/O at the same time.

When you need to incorporate external devices via MIDI, Helix Rack offers more flexibility than any multi-effect ever. In addition to powerful real time MIDI control, Helix Rack can send up to six separate commands at patch recall that aren’t assigned to a connected footswitch, which means you can change a patch on a synth, start a sequencer, and turn up a fader on an external mixer, all with one patch recall. Add AES/EBU digital I/O, Wordclock sync, support for three expression pedals, CV/Expression out, and external amp switching, and Helix Rack can be the command center for any size rig.

Amazing

What is your opinion of this product?
The line 6 helix rackmount is nothing short of amazing the user interface is extremely well designed, a testament to this is you don't need lights to see the controls there are so few of them and simple to operate you can tell that all the planets were in alignment when they designed this thing and everything went well when the engineered it (like no big problems they had to throw band aids on to get it to production) I have sent three really quality amps back this year because they just didn't sound that good, this thing I will keep forever it's just really smart and we'll built line 6 wrote the book on this kind modeling and effects and the helix proof of that fact.

Great for one guitarist bands
What is your opinion of this product?
Not for beginners, but if you have some moderate experience with midi, effects order / placement, different cable methods, and stereo setups for studio / live performances, I really believe that you are going to love how it's all at your fingertips and thanks to Line 6, completely streamlined and simplified. Like all one-pedal-does-it-all multi-effects, Helix has some limitations but I really enjoy how much I can do as the only guitar player in the band. I love how much easier Helix has made it to control everything at once via midi. No more studying midi patching or how to assign CC and all that. Just plug in, set up the song on the amp and Helix and hit save. Very cool and versatile. I don't regret spending the coin on this at all. As a matter of a fact, I have 2. One for live and one for the studio.

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Fantastic. I can pretty much pull out anything in my mind with this guitar modeler. Also, no amps and speakers mean I can practice silently but with true feeling at 3:00 AM.

I love it!
What is your opinion of this product?
I've been using the Helix floor model since our first came out. As my rig got bigger and more complicated, I decided to keep the floor model for rehearsal and my duet show and purchase the rack version for larger shows. The Helix rack shares a rack with my two Line6 wireless units and an in-ear monitor system. My setup and teardown times are greatly improved too. I love the sounds and reliability I've come to trust from the Helix.
