Line 6 HX Stomp Helix Multi FX Processor Pedal
Overview by GAK
This edition of the Line 6 HX Stomp comes in a striking black finish and uses the same HX modelling as Helix. Despite its tiny size, it has many features which are identical to the original Helix amp. With over 300 effects and models, and up to 6 amp, cab, and effect blocks (including a looper and IR loading) to use simultaneously, HX Stomp is a compact and powerful multi-effects processor that easily integrates into a variety of environments and applications.
HX Stomp is easy to program and operate. It can be externally controlled via MIDI and there's an optional expression pedal input and footswitch control for flexibility. A 320 x 240-pixel colour LCD, and colour-coded rings on the three capacitive-sensing footswitches to make editing and recalling presets effortless. The HX Stomp gives you 126 presets, organised by instrument and application, as well as lots of great tones to ready to use.
It allows 4-cable amp integration, which provides a pre-routed template from which you can create custom patches.
The HX Stomp has tremendous depth and ultra-low noise with its 123dB of dynamic range and has enough inputs and outputs for you to take control, for example, Stereo TS ins and balanced TRS Outs, MIDI In/Out, FX loops, USB connection, and TRS expression pedal/footswitch jack so you can connect up to two external expression pedals.
Overview by Line 6
The Line 6 HX Stomp is a professional-grade multi-effects processor that delivers the sound of Helix amps, cabs, and effects in an ultra-compact pedal. Use it as a "super stompbox," a backup or fly rig, an add-on tone expander when combined with other modelers, an audio interface or even a complete guitar or bass rig. The same HX Modeling technology that powers the flagship Helix guitar processor enables HX Stomp to run up to six processing blocks simultaneously, making it the most powerful and flexible stompbox-sized multi-effects processor available. HX Stomp is easy to operate, however, thanks to its simple-but-powerful controls, 320 x 240-pixel color LCD, and capacitive-sensing foot-switches with colour-coded LED rings. External control via MIDI and optional expression pedal and footswitch control provide additional flexibility, as does I/O that may be configured for sophisticated routing such as simultaneously feeding an amp and a FOH mixer, 4-cable method operation with an amplifier, and studio re-amping
- Utilises the same HX Modeling as Helix
- Over 300 effects and models from Helix, M-Series, and legacy Line 6 products
- Up to 6 simultaneous amp, cab, and effect blocks (including a looper and IR loading)
- 3 capacitive-sensing foot-switches with colour-coded LED rings facilitate fast editing
- TRS dual expression pedal/foot-switch input extends creative control capabilities
- Stereo effects loop (mono/stereo TRS send + stereo returns)
So far so awesome, just a pity it only has max 6 DSP blocks and hogs 4 of my power supply outlets (parallel cables to supply >1amp), but I was aware of that before. Regardless, it sounds phenomenal!
Great product, does what I need. GAK has a great range of products and delivery was fast. Brilliant all round experience.
Powerful, small size. Sounds great! Takes a while to get used to the button layout but its worth it for building tones.I use it in conjunction with my current pedal-board to make an amp-less rig. If you want to play live using lots of onboard helix FX and amp models consider the LT or Helix as they're more flexible with more foot-switches. Nevertheless the stomp is great at what it does
Ordered at 3:45pm and it was here the next day, first class service
