A brand new Line 6 ‘Helix’ style effects unit has leaked and it looks pretty sweet, we don’t have any official details of course, but we have found some cool pics to share…
Line 6 HX Effects
The rumour mill has been going crazy for weeks about a new Line 6 product launching at the NAMM Show later this week. It looks like the rumours were on the money as we now have some leaked pictures of the new Line 6 HX.
Okay, details are very scant, but we have a listing taken from Guitar Centre that says that it combines over 100 Helix effects, with 9 simultaneously.
This is a great news, as the Line 6 Helix effects are brilliant in my opinion and I can see why people would want them. I have to say that more often than not I use my Helix LT as a glorified effects multiprocessor because the quality is so good.
Of course, nothing is official yet as this is a leak, however, you can see it has the capacitive footswitches of the Helix and the LED rings around the footswitches, plus the scribble strips – basically everything you need to make this possibly one of the most versatile effects units of 2018.
It looks like there is no foot controller built in, which is a pity, but we should know a lot more by the end of this week!
It’s now official, so I have added their official demo video that overviews all the new features. Here’s a photo of the unit at NAMM 2018:
RRP – USD 599.95
