    Hey guys,

    I just got my brand new Line 6 Helix and it truly is a great beast!
    I'm also an Axe FX XL+ user, which I also love but I gotta tell you, the Helix is right up there with the Fractal stuff in terms of sound.
    The easy of use is a real plus for the Helix imho.

    Anyway, so I made a video in which I give my initial impressions and I show the Helix off in 4 styles.
    A clean poppy type tone, a rock n roll tone, a modern rock/metal tone and an 8-string Meshuggah type tone.
    I also touch on using my OwnHammer impulses briefly.
    All the preset settings are also shown in the video.

    I hope you enjoy!
    Let me know what you think!

    Cheers,

    Pretty cool. It's too bad people have to shell money for external impulses for a product of that price though.

    I don't think it's a big deal.
    The OwnHammer impulse packs are very affordable.
    Guitars also often don't come with good strings from the factory and you have to replace them eventually.
