Changes with the Tap of the Toe

If there's one thing Sweetwater guitarists know, it's that guitarists love stompbox pedals. While menu and software editing can offer great tones and control, we're naturally inclined to want to step on a footswitch and hear the tone we're looking for. Line 6 understands that, which is why Helix Control eschews all of the deep and confusing editing that plagues many other pro-level products, for a simple-to-use 12-footswitch interface that gives you all of the sound and parameter tweaking you'll ever need. And each switch carries a customizable LCD scribble strip for assigning your controls. Now you won't even have to stop playing to get super-deep control and edit your whole rig.

Tour-grade Durability

Since gear takes such a beating on the road, every single component in the Line 6 Helix Control was chosen to be able to stand up to the punishment a professional guitarist will put it through. Helix Control combats the abuse with road-ready footswitches and a bulletproof housing. From the side panels to the extruded top, the solid aluminum construction won't bend or break. It will let you concentrate on your performance, not your gear. So if you're a gigging musician who needs a tour-grade multi-effects controller unit that can keep up with you, make sure to give Helix Control an audition.

Helix Control Foot Controller Features:
  • Capacitive touch-sensitive switches for parameter recall
  • LCD Display
  • Assignable RGB LED color rings
  • Customizable LCD scribble strips
  • Preset or stompbox modes
  • Solid-aluminum construction
  • Tour-grade footswitches
  • Extruded metal design
  • 4 expression pedal outputs
  • USB output
Unlock the Helix Rack's full potential with the Helix Control.

Superbly executed

It's great all you need is the CAT5 cable to go from the pedalboard to the rack unit. All my expression pedals can plug in with short cables right to this pedalboard no more need to have long cables going back to the rack. I love that I can read the displays without my glasses and the setting so you can change what the color rings around the buttons make it so nice. I like how you can change snapshots on the fly as your playing and it will remember them!

Very Impressive!

This piece of gear first off has changed my guitar playing life. No offense to Line 6 but I have never been a fan of them. Just wasn't my thing. I have dipped my toes before into the latest and greatest modeling gear to only be highly disappointed and couldn't send it back fast enough. I started playing in the early 80's and I am a tube amp snob combined with basic effect pedals pure and simple. I have close to a dozen tube amps and drawers full of pedals. But, with the Helix connected to my laptop via USB out to my monitors I can honestly say I do not miss them I enjoy the tones produced so well. You can dial in some great tones with this thing and it's even gotten better through newer firmware updates. It also creates a stress free environment for creativity because it's all self contained within minimal cabling for connections. I used to have chords and various pieces of gear everywhere. In less than a minute my studio is up and running. I've also ran this 4 cable method into my amps with fantastic results. The Helix puts out a strong clean signal and I don't notice any ill effects in doing so. It also doesn't hurt that when playing out with this setup you basically have a Bradshaw system at your feet and it looks professional. I Am Sold! Nice Job Line 6! A very well thought out and awesome sounding piece of gear!
