Over a hundred inspiring presets
Not only does the HX Stomp give you 126 presets for real-world gigging
applications, but it also comes loaded with heaps of great tones for instant
inspiration. Stock presets are organized by instrument (guitar, bass, keys, acoustic)
and application (direct to PA, 4-cable amp routing, etc.), which makes it fast
and intuitive to dive in and find tones.
Modern ampists rejoice! The HX Stomp has integrated support for 4-cable
amp integration. This allows you to front-load your FX loop-equipped guitar
head with stomps traditionally reserved for the front end of an amp (drives,
EQs, filters, wahs, and fuzzes), and back-end effects that tend to sound best
after an amp’s preamp section (delay, reverb, and modulation). Not only that,
but several of the HX Stomp’s presets are also preconfigured for the 4-cable
method, which provides a pre-routed template from which to create custom
The HX Stomp is much more than a multi-effects amp modeler. Though it can
easily replace your current board into the front end of your amplifier, it also
boasts enough I/O and control to take the lead in even the most complex guitar
setups. Here’s what you get:
Stereo TS ins and balanced TRS outs minimize noise into
guitar and pro-level gear
FX loop lets you incorporate your favorite stomps anywhere in your chain
MIDI in/out for traditional MIDI switchers or advanced performance integration
TRS expression pedal/footswitch jack lets you connect up to two external expression
pedals (volume and wah, for example) or expand your switching options by two
USB connection for computer-based patch management and effortless firmware
Capacitive touch footswitches
Following Helix’s lead, the HX Stomp boasts three capacitive touch footswitches
to make editing and recalling presets easier than ever. Simply touch the switch
you want to adjust, make the necessary changes, and save. It couldn’t be
simpler. And to keep track of your tones and changes, Line 6 outfitted each of
the switches with bright color-coded LEDs. No matter how dark or bright the
stage is, you’ll always know what function each footswitch is controlling.
Multichannel USB interface
You can dramatically streamline your recording setup with the Line 6 HX Stomp on
your studio desk. Dialing in tones is as fast and intuitive as on the stage.
Meanwhile, USB connectivity and future-looking 24/96 headroom and clarity
preserve your recordings for later generations to enjoy.
True bypass switching
For picky pedalists, the HX Stomp makes a truly board-worthy stompbox. True
bypass switching eliminates unwanted coloration between your other stomp
effects, so you can integrate the HX Stomp’s advanced pedal, amp, and cab
models into your setup with the quality of your signal intact.
Third-party cab IR support
The HX Stomp includes support for third-party cab IRs. Now fresh tones and
inspiration will always be just a click away.
A proud part of the Helix family
With the entire library of models from the Helix family at your behest, you’ll
never be at a loss for tone with the HX Stomp. All effects and models are
processed through the HX audio engine, ensuring every single swell of a
modulation effect, response of an overdrive, or decay of a delay feels
convincingly like the unit it’s modeling.
