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.

The BEST for the gigging musician!
VladimirG, 28.08.2020
I am a gigging musician and I play weddings, city festivals and the occasional acoustic gig.
I use the Helix LT straight to the mixing board and out to Front of House.

Pros:
many different sounds/amps/effects to choose from
Once you find your sound, its consistent every gig
Snapshots are a life saver
Dynamics are great
processor Interface is very intuitive (can also hook up to PC to make it even easier)

Cons:
My Helix LT was part of a manufacturing series that had a faulty foot pedal. I had to contact Line6, and then Thomann for instructions on repair protocol.
HOWEVER, the service was super great. E-mail replies were speedy and Line6 threw in a little extra something for me for the inconvenience.

Conclusion:
This processor is worth every penny/cent/whatever. I'd recommend it especially for gigging musicians who need a wide array of sounds at a push of a button.

takes your sound to a whole new amazing level
Irishtony, 16.02.2021
first of all when you get the Helix Lt you have to update the software to 3.01 This is a amazing update for presets and general functionality of the helix you can back up the software it comes with 2.92 there are about seven presets that are worth keeping on that but 3.01 a vast improvement. The only limit is your imagination when it come to building your sound its really versatile. I have not had a chance to use it Live because of covid -19 and lock down. I use XLR cable into a floor monitor and sounds good to me and sometimes i use my PA, I tried it with a fender blues jr but without the amp simulator on its just your average sounding amp with effects but with better effects mapping I might invest in a FRFR amp . use the snapshots function for songs with complex sound changes. the only con for me is the built in EXP pedal is a bit lame and gritty feeling when using, when you move it i feel like I'm trying to pump up a Tyre I'm having to over work the pedal you can adjust the tension but it does not really help not for me in anyway and i feel it is gong to break it feels fragile and getting worse with time. The other con is it comes set up with a EAR PIERCING high end E Q the louder you play the more it hurts i don't know why it comes like this go to you tube to resolve this issue there is a good Helix community there for trouble shooting things other than that i Highly RECOMMEND the Helix Lt I'm taking 1 star off the quality for the Expression pedal

Finally some good amp sims
Vorath, 24.05.2021
I use this both for guitar and bass and in the past i have only used tiny practice amps or VST pugins. Which all sucked.

This gives me awesome tones for any genre. And they are truly awesome.
Build quality is super solid (and heavy), and a bit larger than expected. Getting a good bag is recommended.

Careful with the out-of-the-box setup: updating the firmware was a bit problematic, but Line 6 website and forums had the answers.

I still have to experiment a lot more with the sound creation part (so far i have mostly used presets or created super basic configs to try the various amps. Also the setlist config is attractive for live performances.

Pros:
- sound great with both guitar and bass
- good build quality
- price/performance out of this world

Cons:
- still pretty big and heavy
- firmware update was problematic
