Serious electric guitar players want an all-in-one effects processor without skimping on tone. The April 3rd, 2017 release of the new Line 6 Helix LT Modeling Electric Guitar Processor does just that. Because of its lower price than the original Helix Platform products, the new LT model comes at a time when working musicians need more of a break on price than ever.

The Latest in Signal Modeling

The new Line 6 Helix LT Modeling Electric Guitar Processor gives electric guitar players impulse responses and the latest and greatest in signal modeling, without needing 4 FX loops. This new Helix LT is for guitarists who want all the tone that the original Helix & Helix Rack models provide, without the extra in and outs.

The LT, a More Affordable Version of the Helix

With the success of the popular Helix and Helix Rack, this new Helix LT model will become known as the more affordable version of the Helix. “By introducing the Helix LT, Line 6 did the smartest thing possible: They kept the engine and brain of the original Helix the same, but they removed some of the overkill ins and outs, removed the scribble strips, and cut down the number of expression pedals you can hook up. They took all the extra stuff out, but left everything you might need to incorporate this Ferrari of electric guitar effect processors,” said Mike Hovey (Guitar Gear Expert, AMS).

Helix Is the Gold Standard in Guitar Amp Modeling

To understand why the Helix LT launch is such a big deal, it is worth remembering that the original Line 6 Helix was a hit because it took Line 6 modeling (*modeling is digitally emulating an amplifier, in this case a guitar amplifier). The Helix pushed modeling to the next level by including impulse responses and going as far as modeling even the smallest components to make an authentic model.

Tone Junkie Approval

Guitar players are some of the pickiest tone junkies in the world. With the amount of guitarists now using the Helix, they have spoken and say it is the perfect FX modeler for them. A more affordable Helix LT is going to make the Helix platform more obtainable for more guitarists across the USA.
