Overview by GAK

The HX Effects from Line 6 features the same 200+ world-class stompbox models as its siblings, the Helix Floor and the Helix Rack in addition to legacy boxes from Line 6’s M-Series and Stompbox Modeler series. It’s a highly effective solution if you’re looking to replace your masses of bulky pedals with something that can do it all or supercharge your board with an FX toolbox. If you’re looking to get into the Helix range and prefer the response of an amplifier, the HX Effects is the one for you!

Stompbox Sound + MultiFX Choice

The HX Effects gives you the best of both worlds - the versatility and choice of a multi-fx with the incredible quality of individual pedals. You can run up to nine pedals simultaneously, that’s a lot of effecting! Every single component of the real deal has been painstakingly replicated, giving you the feel and, most importantly, the sound of the pedal that’s being emulated. Pristine audio and low-noise are guaranteed thanks to 123dB of dynamic range.

The natural tone of your guitar and amp is preserved when the HX Effects isn’t in use, thanks to a switchable analogue bypass.

Improved Pedalboard Functionality

Visual feedback is provided by the customisable “scribble strips”, which tell you exactly what effect is assigned to what footswitch. Assigning and editing effects is a breeze with the touch-sensitive footswitches. Touching a footswitch with your finger instantly jumps to that effect, touch two switches together to swap the effects over and touch/hold a switch to display all the parameters across the board.

Use Anywhere, With Any Instrument

The HX Effects packs an unbelievable amount of power into a compact form factor that can easily fit onto your board/on top of a synth/on your desk etc.

The switchable line-level input gives you the ability to use the HX Effects as an external processor for your synths, keyboards, mixers in the studio and live.

A flexible I/O configuration gives you the ability to seamlessly integrate the HX Effects into your rig and enhance its control capabilities, featuring two expression inputs, parallel stereo signal paths, two assignable (stereo linkable) effects loops and up to four amp switching outs.

MIDI inputs and outputs, as well as MIDI over USB, means your HX Effects can effortlessly communicate with your MIDI-enabled pedals and DAW of choice. When hooked up to your computer via USB, you can use the free Helix Editor software to quickly and easily edit your patches.

Check out Helix Floor, Rack and LT if you’re looking to incorporate highly-realistic amp sims and the HX Stomp if you’re looking for the Helix sound in a stompbox.

Overview from Line 6

HX Audio Engine - Run up to nine HX effects simultaneously. Featuring the same HX audio engine as Helix processors, HX Effects leverages powerful DSP to run up to nine effects simultaneously. HX Modeling delivers effects with unprecedented authenticity and accurately recreates the behaviour of vintage effects by emulating their specific circuits and components.

HX Effects - More than 100 HX effects—plus IR support. HX Effects features more than 100 of the same effects featured in our Helix guitar processors, including distortions, delays, reverbs, modulations, pitch/synth/filters, compressors/limiters, EQs, wahs, and an on-board looper. HX Effects also lets you load custom impulse responses (IRs), allowing you to customize your sound even further.

Industry-leading dynamic range - Pristine sound quality and responsiveness. HX Effects features an industry-leading 123dB of dynamic range for tremendous depth and ultra-low noise. Each effect is delivered with pristine sound quality to ensure an authentic and responsive playing experience.

True bypass switching - Nothing comes between you and your tone. HX Effects features selectable analog bypass switching to ensure your tone isn’t compromised when the pedal is bypassed.

Capacitive touch foot switches - Quickly select and edit effects. Eight capacitive-sensing footswitches with color-coded LED rings, and six LED scribble scrips enable intuitive effect selection and editing. Simply touch a footswitch with your finger to instantly jump to any effect and quickly adjust its parameters. Touch two switches to swap them. And touch and hold a switch to display all parameters across the LCDs to see everything at once.

Robust routing and I/O - Seamless integration with your rig. HX Effects is easily integrated into existing pedalboard and studio rigs thanks to robust routing and control options, including parallel stereo signal paths, two assignable effects loops (stereo linkable), two expression pedal inputs, and up to four amp switching outputs.

Switchable instrument/line inputs - Connect any instrument, and more. A switchable line-level input enables keyboardists, DJs, and producers to connect electronic instruments or use HX Effects as an outboard processor in the studio.

Master controller - A command center for your entire rig. Like Helix multi-effects processors, HX Effects can act as the command center for your entire rig. Communicate with other pedals or your DAW software via MIDI DIN or USB MIDI, and control your amps from up to four amp switching outputs—all from HX Effects.

  • Neil Bond


    powerful and compact

  • Darryl of Sussex


    Well built and great functionality. For people who like to turn a knob and get results, this will be more challenging. I use this, Iridium and active speakers.

    Excellent service and delivery. Outstanding effects unit. Easy to use with everything needed to support the most complex configurations

  • Patrick Dehm


    Very versatile and easy to use. I found the overdrive and distortion don’t quite cut it live as well as my analogue pedals can.

  • mr J.P.Ayres


    Easy to use and sounds great, fits in my gig bag, replaces my pedalboards
