Line 6 Helix Patches

Our Line 6 Helix patches are meticulously crafted to sound perfect for modern praise and worship music. We offer both base patches (think a massive pedalboard into an amp – or amps), and song-specific patches where you get the exact sounds from a song at the push of a button.

Premium Patches

These are our best-sounding patches for the Helix. Each one includes at least two versions: one designed for use with IR cabs and one with stock Helix cabs. Some include variations for guitars with single coils and humbuckers.

Each premium patch is set up to work great for modern praise and worship settings. They’re designed to run in stomp box mode, and each patch includes multiple drive settings as well as tons of delay and verb options. Think of it as having a massive board into world class amps with super simple usability.

Building Blocks – Helix and HX Effects Patches

Our building blocks series are patches designed to give you a database of effects sounds specifically dialed in for modern worship music. Each patch contains various effects within a single category – drives, reverbs, delays, and modulation. Copy effects blocks from these patches and insert them into new or existing patches to instantly get sounds that will work great every time.

Song Patches

Song patches are designed to mimic the guitar sounds for specific worship songs. Each patch includes both an IR-ready version and a stock Helix cab version. These are designed to be used in ‘Snapshot’ modes, and are set up with snapshots for specific parts within a song.

Each patch contains a full play-through demo video of the song.

How are the premium patches different than the free AC30 Patch?

Our premium patches are more fully-featured than the free AC30 patch, and if you choose to use the IR Cab versions with the specific IR’s we pair with them, they sound even better. See the list below to compare features.

NOTE: The IR Cabs themselves are not included with our premium patches. We link to the specific IR’s we use in each patch if you’d like to match our settings, and we include stock cab versions of each premium patch. We highly recommend investing in the IR Cabs we use – they do make a difference. We try to use IR Cabs from the same manufactures and cab sets, so you only need to purchase one or two sets.

Premium Patches

Multiple Drive options
Multiple Delay Options
Multiple Reverb Options (Big ambient Verbs)
Swells
New Line 6 Reverbs (Awesome modulated reverb options)
IR Cab versions
Snapshots (classic tones at the push of a button)

Free AC30 Patch

    Are you still creating new song specific patches for the Helix?

    • Brian Dec 8, 2017 at 10:50 pm #

      Hi Jason – yes we are releasing new patches regularly. Thanks!

  2. Corey Dec 14, 2017 at 4:24 pm #

    Do you have links to where the IR cabs can be found for these songs? The few links that I have been able to find are over a year old and lead to a page that says those cabs are no longer available. Ownhammer seems to make some really good ones, but they have a huge library. Are there any in particular that you would recommend?

    • Brian Jan 25, 2018 at 12:58 pm #

      Hi Corey – if you’re looking for a replacement for the Justin York collection, OwnHammer recommends the ‘Core Tone’ bundle.

  3. Ron Larson Dec 15, 2017 at 11:12 am #

    I am auditioning for our Worship Team in January. I would like to at some point purchase a Line 6 Helix, and run it through the house system. I am inquiring if someone has some other suggestions as far as guitar processors that someone has used before, again, that I would power from our Churches power amps. Any suggestions?

    • Corey Dec 19, 2017 at 12:12 am #

      For the past year, I’ve used a Line 6 Pod HD500X. Has done everything i’ve needed it to with a bit of work setting up the patches.

      • Brian Jan 25, 2018 at 12:59 pm #

        The HD500x can sound awesome for sure.

  4. Daniel Cardona Dec 28, 2017 at 12:49 pm #

    i think a helix patch for “here as in heaven” would be a good idea.

    • Brian Jan 25, 2018 at 1:28 pm #

      Thanks Daniel! We’re building our song library so we’ll put that on the list.

  5. John Maklary Jan 30, 2018 at 3:46 pm #

    Hello Brian. I’m considering ditching my pedal board and getting the Helix LT. Can you tell me about the compatibility of the patches you offer to the LT version of the Helix? Thanks!!

    John

  6. Marcus Briggs Feb 9, 2018 at 8:14 pm #

    Brian… I just purchased your AC30 bundle along with the Matchless MK2 and the Cartographer… The AC30 bundle loaded up perfectly into my Helix… However the other two (with or without IRs) will not load. The Helix keeps rejecting them saying that it doesn’t recognize the file type. Any advice? I already have updated everything to version 2.5

    • Eric Feb 19, 2018 at 10:20 pm #

      Hey Marcus, did you get this sorted out? I bought the Cartographer and it wont install but the AC30 did. Just curious. Thanks

      • twilson227 Mar 5, 2018 at 4:57 pm #

        I’m having the same problem. I’m sure it’s an easy fix whatever the problem may be.

    Hi there, does anyone know how to find the Helix-Patch used in this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tItKft3vt6o&list=PLY_dO3T0bHqvtOVRxkfYQq-rzFnTbq_GV&index=1&t=0s
    Love the sound of the Dr. Z.
    The Link in the bottom-Line of the youtube-video doesn’t match.
    Thanks for your great jobs!

  8. Jake Delgado Mar 12, 2018 at 1:59 pm #

    Hey Brian,

    Jake Delgado here, I’ve just recently ran across your YouTube channel and I just wanted to say I love the channel and what you guys do, I am a fellow worship player, and what you’ve done with the helix specific song patches really help, so I just wanted to encourage you guys to keep up the awesome work! On a side note I saw a post where you guys are a making a song library for the helix patches and I had a few suggestions for the list, apart from playing in church, my friends and I just started a band called “Pursuit” so the songs I suggest would go into my set list as well. My suggestions are “You Can Have It All” – Bethel, “So Will I”- Hillsong, “My Victory”- Crowder “ Great are You Lord”- All Sons and Daughters, and finally “World of Grace”- Bryan and Katie Torwalt. I love you guys and God Bless y’all and your ministries!

    Are you planning on making any HX specific Presets, or just the base sound patches?

  10. Todd Mar 30, 2018 at 11:22 am #

    Thanks for all the work you are doing to make the Line 6 Helix product better! I’ve watched several of your videos and they are fantastic. This is quality stuff! I’m just getting into using the HX Effects model and I run my 50’s Telecaster directly into a ’64 Princeton Non-reverb. It has been the best solution to getting my tone like I’ve wanted for years… Question: I noticed that all Helix patches do not work for the HX Effects. I’m assuming because the HS Effects does not include the amp modeling. Will you be developing more specific HX Effects patches? I would be particularly interested in acoustic guitar patches that would work with K&K Pure Western pickups. Thanks again for all you’re doing! A Good Friday to y’all and happy Easter!

  11. Justin Apr 12, 2018 at 3:35 pm #

    Was wondering if you would do a tutorial on how to set up a “freeze” button on the Helix. I once downloaded a patch off of Line 6’s website with a swells button, and it also had a “freeze” button on the patch that would allow you to in a sense loop whatever sound you played in the moment without using the looper in the pedal. If you don’t get what I mean I can email you the patch to better understand it but would love this functionality in my patches, and to incorporate this in some of the patches I get from WT.

    Hi, I have the HX multi-effects, not the full Helix. Will your Helix patches work on the HX? Specifically, I am looking at purchasing your artist patches but want to make sure they will work on my HX. Also, the IR cabs you recommend, will those work on the HX? Just want to confirm these things before I purchase. Thank you!

    Hi!

    I’ve been purchasing patches from this site for some time now. Recently, I’ve updated the Helix to the new version. I bought the Nigel Hendroff patch and when I try to install it, it says that it’s not compatible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi, can these patches be used in the Helix LT also?
    Thanks

    • Isaac May 14, 2018 at 3:00 pm #

      All the Helix patches can be used for the LT or the Floor (I’m assuming the rack as well) since they all use the same interface.

  15. Mickie Smith May 12, 2018 at 6:16 pm #

    Hi there, how do u guys run your xlr outputs for the stereo patches! And do u have to pan the left and the right output?

  16. Isaac May 14, 2018 at 2:55 pm #

    I know a lot of people are using Tele’s and Strat’s nowadays but I was wondering if you could create a few patches for those of us who use humbuckers? I’m a proud Les Paul user and love the meat to the humbuckers! Thanks!
