Default Line 6 announce Helix Guitar Processor

Looks like they're going after the Kempers, Axe FX, etc. Very interesting.

It should be mentioned that this loads 3rd party impulse responses. It's mentioned somewhere in the video on the website.

Yep, it does.

I'm also waiting to see what Positive Grid does with BIAS Hardware.

Line6 did a nice job with this unit.
I wish Avid would do a deal like they did with Apogee and work with them to embed rig settings and offer an Avid branded Helix.

You can dream.....

That looks crazy cool with that nice screen and definitely a piece I will try as soon as it arrives in Sweden Checked out a few videos and it seem to be super awesome sound in it aswell.

Anyone have a price gossip

I saw $1499 MSRP and another $499 for the footcontroller/Footswitch and it seem kinda high doesn't it?

Sweetwater seem to have the same price: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Helix

Our old friend Sean Halley who did the first videos for Eleven Rack and then later moved to Line 6 and did videos for their products is back demoing the Helix at Sweetwater.

I couldn't imagine spending that much on ANY Line 6 product. I would just spend the extra few bucks and go with the Kemper at that point.

Oh well that shows what happens when you fire the team behind a great product like the Eleven Rack... I'm not sure Avid has much left to contribute to anybody.
