Line 6 Announce Helix Multi-Effects Pedal

Line 6 have unveiled a brand new flagship multi-effects pedal, the Helix. Available as a pedalboard or rack mounted (with optional footswitch), Line 6 claim that the Helix "represents a giant leap forward in guitar processing, as well as a new way of thinking about guitarists and their relationship to technology."

Utilising touch-sensitive footswitches, the Helix allows the player to edit sounds on the fly, without needing to take their hands off the guitar. Each footswitch features a multi-coloured LED ring, and a large LCD screen enables the user to view patch names, effect parameters and the customisable signal chain. Check out a demo of the Helix below:

Expect to see the Helix at the end of summer 2015. Both floor and rack versions have an MSRP of $1499.
