    Hi there,
    I am a little bit confused..or just a bit early ;-)

    So there is the new Line 6 HX Effects.

    Will all the effects from HX Effects b available for the Helix? Maybe in 2.50 update

    I find it quite important as I loved my DL4 and I am really missing these sounds in my Helix, which I just got.

    No worries.. It's other way around in that the HX will incorporate the Helix effects. According to their site "HX Effects includes the full array of Helix effects plus legacy effects from the M-Series and Stompbox Modeler pedals."

    fyi... when new Helix firmware 2.50 is released VERY soon, it too will include the legacy L6 effects.

    I am not understanding why so many Helix users want one when they will have evrything in it. Now if it linked with the Helix and its settings were stored in a preset, then it is added DSP. I cant imagine every needing that crazy of a preset but i see people trying stuff i think is insane all of the time. lol. Too me the most simple patches normally sound the best.

    Exactly Ralph! It's odd how excited Helix users seem to be about it. I suppose for users that never use the amp models & want to streamline current Helix effect use it has appeal.
