Line 6 Helix Control Pedal
Overview by GAK
The Helix Control is the perfect companion to the Helix Rack and is essential if you plan on using the Rack in a live setting. With twelve capacitive-touch footswitches and three expression pedal inputs, you can take advantage of Pedal Edit mode for hands-free tweaking. All you have to do is select the block you want to edit - which then spreads all parameters across the board - then adjust the chosen value with an expression pedal.
The visual feedback provided by the customisable scribble strips and the coloured LEDs makes the user interface a lot more intuitive as you can see all the footswitch assignments and their effect types at a glance.
The Helix Control connects to the Rack via Ethernet and is also powered this way, so you can enjoy a tidier onstage setup. The chassis is constructed from rugged bent steel and the footswitches are made to withstand repeated stomps - the Control won’t let you down when you’re in the throes of performing!

Adding the Helix Control pedal to the Helix Rack processor accesses its full functionality. Features include twelve capacitive-touch footswitches with colored LED rings and customizable scribble strips, three expression pedal inputs, and hands-free editing when in Pedal Edit mode. No other foot controller offers these features or merges so effectively with the Helix Rack processor.
- Sturdy metal chassis cuts weight and takes up less floor space
- Touch-sensitive footswitches with LED rings & custom scribble strip displays
- 3 expression pedal inputs allow maximum foot pedal customizability

Smart and simple design! Works perfectly with the rack unit and with one cable sending data and power to it frees up so much floor space. Highly recommend if your looking at getting the rack unit.
