Bejesus holy smokes!

I mean why did I waited so many years to switch to Helix Floor!!!

I do abuse mostly cleans, sparkly Fenderish type tones and this thing does it better than I expected! It's not about the metal tones, I do not care how awesome they are. But the clean single coil things you can get out of this unit is mindboglinly good.

I can't say Helix + Headrush's 108 FRFR feels in hands and sounds to my ears anything but the same as a proper valve amp with 1x12 cab next to it. Can't feel the difference so many speak so loudly.
One thing though worth mentioning that Helix does all and weights nothing! That is always good for your back and for travel conveniance.

For those who are interested, Helix Native is nothing like Helix floor, the zero latency and matched input preamp of the floor unit completely changed the perception of Helix software to me.

Can't recommend this enough to anyone, absolutely game changer in my case. Easy to use, sounding outstandingly good, being reliable with perfect warranty service is a must nowadays!

The game changer
Tom from the block 02.07.2018
I've been real fan of all that pedalboard'n'amp stuff. But then i decided to buy Helix. And Helix changed everything.

I am lead vocalist and guitar player in cover band. We play well known songs in many different genres and styles. I was tired of buying expensive pedals. Some of them were on my pedalboard just for one song on gig. Then i made a hard decision... I bought Line6 to replace my pedalboard. I am really satisfied!

The main reason i bought this is amp modelling. There's no need to carry my tube amp on gigs anymore because amps on Helix sound even better. On Helix you will find everything you need. It takes a little time to go through all effects an test them. Each effect has many parameters to configure so you can get that perfect sound you are looking for.
Interface is so easy to use. Built my first preset in under 5 minutes.

Build quality is totally worth the price. Built like tank. Metal housing looks solid and gives you that Top class feeling.

By far there are no cons to write.

The Helix is unbelievable.

The Helix is unbelievable.
This is hands down the best money I've spent on guitar equipment.
Sounds amazing, and has very flexible inputs/outputs.
The Helix has many options to built a good tone , it is complex and you have too keep that in mind when you buy one. Because it is complex you can easily build tones but to build good tones you might actually stick some time to it , to learn the way you properly use it but after you do , you get very good tones , especially for Modern metal genre.
The feature are way more then enough. The Quality is SOLID. you can rest assure nothing will brake easily , all you have to care about is the screen , but there are many screen protectors you can buy on the market. Compared to a Kemper , this is way better in my opion since you can manipulate the sound you want way much better.Line 6 also has a pretty active community and a site for sharing patches. The other day, I heard a song, and was pretty intrigued by the sound on the guitar. I watched a video of the band to see what he was using for an instrument (Les Paul) and then went to line 6’s site and searched for the song in the presets archive. Sure enough, grabbing the preset from the archive and plugging in my Les Paul, bam, I’ve got the sound.
This is 10/10 guitar processor, hope you enjoy it !

Very good, waiting to get excellent
Sami H. 14.11.2015
Like many electronic devices these days, helix also runs on a software platform. Because it is very new, there's a whole lot of bugs and improvements to wait. Good thing is that line6 is working all the time and has already released a couple of updates.

If you want to get crazy with kahillion effects the helix will run out of dsp power quite fast - but for "reasonable" basic setups it delivers muchos buenos!

The unit as a whole is very versatile - works well for so many more things than only processing guitar sounds. If you're after everything helix could be used for, I can't see any competitors. For making only guitar-sounds I'd go for something else. I think the guitarcabinets on helix are a bit dark to my taste but that is fixed via IR-support. Just load in ownhammers for a bliss!

The UI is quite fantastic. Best I've seen so far. Very fast to learn and use.

Would I recommend Helix? Deffinately yes.
