The Rack is in near-mint condition - the screen is perfect, there are no scratches, marks or blemishes to the unit, and its freshly updated to the latest firmware (3.11.0). The photos may look as if there are marks to the case above the screen, but this is just a reflection. The Helix Control is in excellent condition. All of the footswitches and'scribble strips' (displays) are working, with just some extremely minor pixellation to the bottom-right scribble strip, which I've captured in the photos.
This doesn't affect usability at all, and you have to look very closely to notice it! It really belongs in a home studio or on a stage - it's a brilliant piece of equipment that is light years ahead of their last generation effects units. It integrates amazingly with the Line6 software for tweaking settings, and the Helix Control makes it simple to use onstage (and also opens up options like audio loops that otherwise aren't possible with the rack alone). There are also a massive number of Impulse Response packs available online, which allow you to add additional cabinet models easily.
The Rack comes in the original box/packaging, with power lead, USB lead, a Cat5 cable for the Helix Control and the original USB stick for firmware updates (although you can also do this the USB lead). Also check out Jason Sadites on Youtube to see just how much the Helix is capable of in terms of tone and control.Helix Rack is a new kind of guitar processor that's not only a tour-grade rack mounted multi-effect processor that sounds and feels authentic, it's also the most comprehensive master controller for guitar systems ever built. Recreate the tones in your head with the new HX modeling engine with sounds that will feel familiar to anyone who has ever spent time in the studio getting the best guitar sounds from both vintage and modern gear. Take advantage of the most comprehensive I/O and routing capabilities ever built into a multi-effect and easily integrate your favourite pedals into the Helix Rack environment. Once connected, create custom setups that make your external pedals feel like they're all under the hood. Whether you spend your time in the studio or on the stage, Helix Rack is the next-generation guitar processor you've been waiting for. Helix Rack represents a giant leap forward for guitar technology - it feels and sounds like analog gear. The dual-DSP engine accurately recreates the dynamic feel of tube amplifiers, not just their sonic fingerprint. Each stage of an amp's circuit has been measured and matched back to the original, so that each model reacts and interacts just like the real thing.
This level of dynamic circuit detail extends into areas like power supply ripple, individual tube sag, and control over B+ voltages. Once these elements are captured, you get classic bloom and gooey compression on some amps, and a powerful gut punch on others. Helix Rack also lets you load custom impulse responses, allowing you to personalise your rig setup. Fast Editing With Helix Control. Helix Rack can be controlled by almost any MIDI-capable device, but adding Helix Control gives you the same innovative capabilities found in the floor based Helix, and this means that - for the very first time - you won't have to stop playing to tweak a knob.
With Pedal Edit Mode, you can edit any parameter you like using your foot: simply select the block that you want to tweak, and its parameters spill out onto the Helix Control footswitches. Select a parameter, and tweak the value using one of three optional expression pedals. Helix Rack with Helix Control is the fastest tone creator of its kind on the planet. But that's only part of the story, it's also the most flexible. Helix Rack has FOUR stereo paths per preset, allowing you to design complex routing scenarios for each patch.Creating variations on wet and dry routing schemes is as easy as loading a template or tweaking the joystick, and using the onboard effects models in conjunction with the 4 freely-assignable effects loops means that the tonal possibilities are truly huge. Helix Rack can become the nerve center for your entire guitar rig. Easily integrate traditional effects pedals and other hardware into your environment, creating a seamless hybrid rig that incorporates the best of what software and hardware have to offer.
Helix Rack has the most flexible audio routing ever seen on a guitar processor, thanks to its dynamically allocated DSP. Use the four effects loops to connect four separate pedal chains, or split them up and use them as freely-assignable inputs and outputs.
In combination with four stereo paths, this means that you can process multiple instruments at once, send wet and dry signals to different places, and create large integrated systems that take advantage of both digital and analog I/O at the same time. When you need to incorporate external devices via MIDI, Helix Rack offers more flexibility than any multi-effect ever. In addition to powerful real time MIDI control, Helix Rack can send up to six separate commands at patch recall that aren't assigned to a connected footswitch, which means you can change a patch on a synth, start a sequencer, and turn up a fader on an external mixer, all with one patch recall. Add AES/EBU digital I/O, Wordclock sync, support for three expression pedals, CV/Expression out, and external amp switching, and Helix Rack can be the command center for any size rig.Helix Rack represents a new way of thinking about guitarists and technology, and gives creative musicians the tools to quickly recreate the sound they hear their head, without sonic compromise. Helix Control can add many unique features that will enhance your Helix Rack experience. Combined, these two pieces of gear make an exceptionally powerful guitar system. The Helix Control is the perfect companion to the Helix Rack and is essential if you plan on using the Rack in a live setting. With twelve capacitive-touch footswitches and three expression pedal inputs, you can take advantage of Pedal Edit mode for hands-free tweaking.
All you have to do is select the block you want to edit - which then spreads all parameters across the board - then adjust the chosen value with an expression pedal. The visual feedback provided by the customisable scribble strips and the coloured LEDs makes the user interface a lot more intuitive as you can see all the footswitch assignments and their effect types at a glance.The Helix Control connects to the Rack via Ethernet and is also powered this way, so you can enjoy a tidier onstage setup. The chassis is constructed from rugged bent steel and the footswitches are made to withstand repeated stomps - the Control wont let you down when youre in the throes of performing!
