Line 6 – Announces HELIX LT

ModKitsDIY

The Helix® LT guitar processor delivers the highest levels of performance, flexibility, and control in its class. Featuring the same powerful dual-DSP processing and award-winning HX Modeling technology found in the flagship Helix Floor and Helix Rack guitar processors, its streamlined I/O complement and hardware configuration make it more affordable for budget-conscious guitarists who still want to access the power of Helix. Helix LT also makes an ideal backup processor for Helix Floor and Helix Rack owners, as the presets for all three are compatible.

    All they removed just enough of the extra stuff to try and use it to get rid of the HD Series. This is a bridge product. They are slowly building out their new product line. The update just made it to 2.20 and the complete software package isn’t out yet.

    Besides all that. The price difference is not that far from the Helix to justify the loss in features.

    If you can’t afford the Helix then you weren’t ready for it anyway. People that can’t tell the difference between the HD500 and the Helix are not likely to use any of the features, less alone the extra inputs because they don’t understand how it works. All you have to do is look at the videos on Youtube by Pete Thorn to tell that the people in the industry that get it know why it’s priced the way it is.

    The same people complaining about $1400 for a guitar workstation are the ones that would spend $1400 on a guitar they can’t play. They are also the same ones that complain about updates. They represent the lowest common denominator of players that want tone but don’t want to spend time learning anything new. Or to even learn enough about the gear to produce anything.

  2. It’s good to note exactly why the Helix LT is such a big deal:

    “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” – AMS Gear Expert
