Sounds great, extremely versatile and great sounds
Hillman, 14.01.2019
I bought the LT because the full model was a bit too expensive. Having used the LT for a couple of months now I have no regrets. This unit can do everything I need and a (whole) lot more.

Sounds are just great. There's loads of youtube demo's on this, so I'll just leave it to this. Anyhow, describing sound with words is not so easy :-)

The IR loading possibility is nice, but the tones you can get out of the standard unit are so tweakable that I don't think I'll ever need the option.

Where the unit really shines is the patch creation. For simple stuff you have a great guitar tone in just a few minutes. Based on the type of guitar you may need to change the amp settings but the out-of-the-box settings are very usable. Then add pedals/effect where-ever you like them and tweak the sound to your liking. Snapshot functionality is a great option and I use it a lot for playing songs with my band. I use the upper 4 switches for patches and the lower four for snapshots. Works fantastic.

If you want more complex configurations no problem. Parallel routings, multiple cabs, different sound for line and xlr or even the fx out. All is possible with the simple and intuitive interface.

Overall a great unit. I bought it together with the Thomas flight-case. A bit more expensive but as I use the unit in bars where the floors may not be as clean as at home this was a good investment.

Overall, worth the money and if you don't need all the extra inputs and outputs as in the full model this unit can do everything you want. Scribble strips ??? Nice indeed, but I don't miss them and the LT has a wonderful (maybe even better) system for that.

Thanks Line6 for a great product. Next time maybe add the MP3 input again (sounds stupid, but I liked that in the HD550X) and some bluetooth for wireless editing.

Best sounding Multi FX unit I have ever had
tormal, 16.04.2018
25 years ago I started my amp-less guitar life with a Boss ME-10, 15 years ago I changed to Boss GT-6. I thought they are the best.
Then someone showed me Line6 Pod HD 300 - the next day I sold my GT to buy a Pod. Few months later I replaced it with a HD500 then came the HD500X. When Line6 released Helix I knew I am lost, but its price held me back from buying. And then Helix LT was launched... I knew my time had come.
The first one I got last summer and this one is actually the 2nd, spare one for me, it will replace my HD500X.
The reason is the simplicity of use it gave me over the Pod. With it it took just too long time to program usable guitar tones, but with the Helix LT all my preset building activities changed: less tweaking and more playing became characteristical. The design of the user interface is almost perfect (maybe a touch screen in Helix 2.0 would erase "almost"), the possibilities to make an endless number of pedal boards by using seemingly endless number of amp, cabs and FXs are beyond imagination.
I use it together with a Variax JTV89F in a band playing rock/folk-rock music, the versatility of the rig is just wonderful.
I have never had so much fun playing guitar before.

Pretty solid piece of hardware
sp3ctr3, 23.05.2017
Forget about the Helix Floor. This has all the features you need except if you want to add vocals to it, but there is a workaround with XLR to TS adapter. The handling is easy, but switching between snapshots and presets is a bit weird. The expression pedal is the weakest point of the device. It doesn't feel good and its hard to be precise with it. Also the foot-switch on the pedal is weird. As for the Scribble strips i don't really need them. It's easy to tell which is which pedal by color or by Performance view. The price of Helix Floor doesn't justify anymore because this unit is all a guitar player needs. Yes the effects and amps are exactly the same as Helix Floor. The Helix application has bad design choice but it doesn't make this unit any worse. Tried my studio headphones and active studio monitors, the output sound is pristine. Love the built in audio interface, which makes audio recording and learning very easy. You can hear everything from your laptop and Helix on one output devices which makes tons of difference. I highly recommend this devices to any guitarist!

Great Tones at a Competitive Price
Jyothish, 04.10.2019
This is among the most affordable amp modelers available in the market, and the fact that it runs on the same firmware and sound engine as the full-featured Helix Floorboard makes it even better.

It is well-built and has a robust chassis. The display is large, bright, and comfortable to work with. The capacitive footswitches allow for easy signal path operations to tweak sounds. The expression pedal can be a bit stiff to operate, but otherwise allows for a smooth and precise functioning. The rotary knobs however feel flimsy and fragile. It would have been nice to have them made out of something sturdier.

The interface is easy to get accustomed to within a few days of use. It has a great selection of amp models and effects to work with, and the inter-compatibility across the Helix and HX range is convenient. The DI-recording and re-amping capabilities are useful to have as well. However, I found that the stock cabinet models lacked a certain responsiveness and tonality. But that was easily solved by using third-party impulse responses wherein the tones feel and sound incredible after the fact.

Overall, this unit has proven to be a worthwhile and useful investment, taking my experience of playing and recording guitar to a whole new level.
