Line 6 has just dropped their new software update for the popular Helix range of products and since they recently just announced the new Helix LT model, this is a welcome new set of features for existing owners and a nice bonus for new users as well.
Essentially the new update brings us a suite of new HX amp models with some entirely new models, some new effects and also allows you to use their new Impluse Response models for cabinets.
Amp models include the following; a new Line 6 Badonk, Del Sol 300, Woody Blue, Busy One CH 1 & 2 and Busy One Jump. Plus a suite of cabinets based around Mesa, Matchless and Sunn models.
How low can you go?
There is now a whole new set of bass amps included, so if you are more inclined for the low end of things, then you’ll appreciate these. On top of all this they are the usual bug fixes and functional stability upgrades.
Please make sure you back up any of your own custom patches before running the update, as with anything software/firmware related, you are at risk of losing data.
Check out the link below for this free update and I have included a list takens directly from Line 6 of all the new amp models and IRs for you to check out as well.
