LINE 6 HELIX

Here you will find all our Line 6 Helix resources, including our patches and videos.

'Base' Patches

These patches are based on different amps and are set up like a typical pedalboard and amp. Each patch contains a 'ReadMe' file with information about signal flow and effects. You can also click through to each individual patch to see video demonstrations and learn more.

Most of my patches use IR cabs, and I prefer IR's by OwnHammer. Paid patches will include both an IR version and a stock Helix cab version. Free (or 'pay what you want') patches only include the IR cab version. The IR Cabs themselves are not included, and can be purchased from OwnHammer.

'Song' Patches

These patches are based on specific song arrangements and include Snapshots for each part of the song. Each patch contains a 'ReadMe' file with information about signal flow, effects, and snapshots. You can also click through to each individual patch to see video demonstrations and learn more.

Most of my patches use IR cabs, and I prefer IR's by OwnHammer. Paid patches will include both an IR version and a stock Helix cab version. Free (or 'pay what you want') patches only include the IR cab version. The IR Cabs themselves are not included, and can be purchased from OwnHammer.

Helix FAQs: Which IR cabs I use

In the Helix FAQ series I answer some commonly asked questions about the Line 6 Helix. I use IR Cabs in pretty much all my patches, and typically I'll run two IR cabs per patch (basically like taking one amp and running it to two cabs). I detail which cabs I use in this post.

Helix FAQs: How I run it live and dial in tones

I get asked often how I run the Helix live and in the studio, and how I like to hook it up when I create new patches. My setup is about as simple as it gets, but there are a few things to consider when setting up patches.

Helix FAQs: How to set up an ambient swell sound

In all my patches, I like to map 4 effects to a single footswitch and call it 'Swells'. From there, simply hit the button, use the volume pedal to create swells and listen to the beautiful ambience.

Line 6 Helix – First Impressions and Reivew

The Helix is Line 6's new flagship modeling product. It is completely different technology than the POD HD series, and is priced and developed to compete with higher end systems like Fractal's Axe FX and the Kemper Profiling amp. We think it sounds fantastic.
