    So I come across this article on Facebook where a small 3 button version of the helix is announced. Sort of the amplifire box/gigboard version of helix but then way more bells and whistles. And now the article is gone?

    From the line 6 forum from a staff member:

    "All effects except for the reverbs and 8 of the 10 wahs were created in Helix from the ground up. The HD/M-Class reverbs and wahs were rebuilt in HX tho', so they sound better and in some cases, have more nuance and control. Also, the analog front end and A/D/A conversion is superior in Helix, so the raw sonic quality has improved as well, even with no modeling active."

    ouch 600 hundred.
    I was really hoping for 400-500.

    this is exactly what I need to take to jams and have something to play around with at home.

    Tiny form factor, high quality amps and effects, and 4cm capability? Color me interested! This is just what I need to pair up with my Twin Jet to give it a clean channel and better effects than I'm getting from my G Major :yesway:

    Our rep came by yesterday and I got a chance to try this out with a Line 6 Power Cab Plus.

    Sounded fantastic! I'm not huge on modeled tones so I rarely look at it like that, but the rep had some great tones dialed in.

    It functioned very well and its about the size of a Strymon Timeline or the Boss DD-500 pedals.

    I'm sure it will be successful, I'm probably still leaning towards the HX since I don't need the amp model aspect but it would make for a very nice sounding back up rig.

    Cheers.

    Is it bad that I still just want them to stick it in a bean?

    I guess this is as close as I’ll get...

    $900 in Australia!!!!! I thought the HX Stomp would be around $500 in Oz but $900 come on. If Mooer can make similar products for around $400Aud so can Line6 they are way overpriced. It is all a rip off Helix lt is $1500 that is bullshit Line6 probably knock them out for $300 a pop if that. But the sheep keep buying them baa! baa!

    When I saw it posted, I was kinda hoping it'd be $500 or less as well (it's $800 here in Canada).

    if you connect it to your pc you can use it as a 4 input and 4 output audiointerface
    so you can reamp without a reamp box, record DI's without a DI-Box etc

    Pretty cool. I assume that requires all the connections?
