Helix Firmware 2.20 Release Notes

Helix v2.20.0 is a firmware update that includes new amps, cabs, effects, features, fixes, stability improvements, and optimizations. It is highly recommended that all Helix users perform this update!


1. Shut down all Line 6 software as well as any software that streams audio, including, but not limited to: iTunes, Spotify, DAWs, browsers, etc.

2. Use your CURRENT EXISTING Helix application to back up all of your presets and IRs (if you want to keep them). For example, if you’re running Helix FW 1.12, your current Helix application version should be 1.12.

NOTE: You may want to back up individual Setlists so you can restore them to empty setlists without affecting the new 2.20 factory presets.

3. Quit the CURRENT EXISTING Helix editor application and download and install the LATEST Helix editor application (2.20), available here: This also installs the newest version of Line 6 Updater (1.11).

4. If you’re using Helix Rack with Helix Control, turn off Helix Control.

5. Using the latest Line 6 Updater (1.11), update Helix/Helix Rack to the newest firmware (2.20). At the end of the update process, Helix/Helix Rack will reboot automatically and begin rebuilding presets. Wait for this process to complete.

6. If you’re using Helix Control with Helix Rack, connect and power on Helix Control. The inspector will ask if you want to update its firmware. Press Knob 6 (OK). Wait for the update to finish.


7. To reset globals and restore presets, turn off Helix/Helix Rack.

HELIX FLOOR ONLY: While holding footswitches 9 and 10 (middle two switches on the bottom row), turn on Helix. Wait for the message “Will reset Globals and restore stock Presets, Setlists and IRs…” to appear and let go.

HELIX RACK ONLY: While holding knobs 5 and 6 below the screen, turn on Helix Rack. Wait for the message “Will reset Globals and restore stock Presets, Setlists and IRs…” to appear and let go.

8. Using the NEW Helix editor application (2.20), restore the user presets you backed up in step 2.

New Amps (6)
- Line 6 Badonk, all new Line 6 original inspired by the original high gain Big Bottom model

- Woody Blue, based on* the Acoustic®️ 360 bass amp

- Delay > Adriatic Swell (Mono, Stereo), Line 6 Original

- Pitch/Synth > 3 Note Generator (Mono, Stereo), Line 6 Original

- Pitch/Synth > 4 OSC Generator (Mono, Stereo), Line 6 Original

NOTE: As 3 Note Generator and 4 OSC Generator make sound without any instrument connected, their blocks are turned off by default. Press BYPASS to turn them on.

* All product names are trademarks of their respective owners, which are in no way associated or affiliated with Line 6.

New Features
- Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > Receive MIDI Clock—Helix can now synchronize its time-based effects (such as delay and modulation) to incoming MIDI clock from external DAW software, drum machines, keyboard workstations, or other modelers. Select “Off” (Helix ignores MIDI clock), “MIDI” (Helix responds to clock received at its MIDI IN jack), “USB” (Helix responds to clock received via USB), or “Auto” (Helix uses its internal tempo generator until receiving clock from either MIDI or USB)

- Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > Send MIDI Clock—Helix can now transmit MIDI clock to synchronize the tempo of external pedals, rack gear, and software. Select “Off” (Helix does not transmit clock), “MIDI” (Helix transmits clock from only the MIDI OUT jack), “USB” (Helix transmits clock only via USB), or “MIDI+USB” (Helix transmits clock from both MIDI and USB)

- Variax Workbench HD Support—Variax can now communicate directly with Variax Workbench HD software (Mac/PC) through Helix via USB. IMPORTANT! Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > MIDI over USB must be set to “On.” In addition, you MUST update Variax Workbench HD to version 2.20, available here: [URL] Windows users must also download the Helix USB driver, version 1.85, available here:

IMPORTANT! Variax Workbench uses MIDI channel 16. When connecting to Variax Workbench via Helix’s USB port, do not assign Helix or any of Helix’s Command Center messages to MIDI channel 16 or Omni (which includes channel 16).

- Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo > MIDI PC Send/Receive has been split into two separate parameters—MIDI PC Receive and MIDI PC Send—and moved to Page 2. In addition, you may choose whether Helix sends or receives MIDI PC (program change) messages to/from MIDI, USB, both, or neither

- Clear Bypass Assignment—Individual blocks’ bypass assignments can now be cleared. From the Bypass Assign screen, select the block whose bypass assignment(s) you wish to clear. Press ACTION and then Knob 1 (Clear Assignments).

- Line 6 Allure Pack IRs—Line 6 has created a pack of five user impulse responses for use with Helix or any other modeler or software that supports them. Download the free Allure Pack here:

- Optimized GUI engine speeds up navigation and model selection

- Receive MIDI Clock and Send MIDI Clock have also been added to the Tempo panel shortcut. At any time, touch TAP to open the Tempo panel.

- When slaved to external MIDI clock, TAP’s scribble strip text grays out and its switch LED ring flashes blue

- Reverb > Plate, Room, Chamber, Hall, Echo, Tile, Cave, Ducking, and Octo have all been optimized to be less DSP-intensive

- Pitch > Pitch Wham, Twin Harmony, Simple Pitch, Dual Pitch, and 3 OSC Synth have all been optimized to be less DSP-intensive

- Non-selected Pedal Edit parameter switches now reflect dim block color

- Inactive Looper function switches now appear as dim white

- Additions to and improvements made to the existing factory preset bundle

Bug Fixes
- In very rare cases, corrupted presets containing a Volume/Pan > Volume Pedal block can cause volume to drop to 0% - FIXED

- Certain Roland keyboards constantly spit out active sensing MIDI messages (with no way to disable them), which could affect Helix’s MIDI transmission - FIXED

- The Channel Volume taper for the Archetype amp model was incorrect - FIXED

- Many other minor bug fixes and optimizations

Known Issues
- If a Variax guitar is connected to Helix, MIDI channel 16 should never be used, as channel 16 is how Variax Workbench communicates with the guitar. This is by design. On a related note, Variax Workbench should never be used while MIDI tracks are armed or playing back in your DAW

- In rare cases, Helix may freeze when very rapidly changing presets while receiving MIDI clock

- Helix’s blue TAP LED flashes but tempo is not actually synced unless an audio device is selected in Ableton Live

- Subtle stepping may be heard when adjusting the main VOLUME knob while audio is present

- If a user fails to read and follow the update instructions, Helix will engage Snapshot 2 in preset 8 Templates > 32D every day at 4:30 AM


Ensuite un plug in Logiciel donc qui s'appelera Helix Native va voir le jour a noter que le prix devrait être de 99 Euros Rolling Eyes pour les possesseurs d'Helix et 399 euros tout seul.

Modèles d’amplis et d’effets très convoités.
Le plug-in Helix Native offre une palette exceptionnelle pour stimuler la création sonore avec plus de 60 amplis, 30 enceintes et 100 pédales d’effets. L’interface permet un travail rapide et intuitif en offrant un accès instantané à toute la chaîne du signal et un réglage immédiat des paramètres. D’une flexibilité inouïe, Helix Native prend également en charge les réponses impulsionnelles (IR) de tierces parties.

Le plug-in Helix Native est compatible avec un large éventail de DAW et est extrêmement performant (64 bits) sur les plateformes AAX, AU et VST3. Il s’intègre parfaitement avec le matériel Helix, ce qui vous permet d’emporter vos sons du studio sur scène – et vice versa

La sortie au printemps 2017 suivant les sources pour le plug-in.


Wait… Is this Helix in a plugin?
Yes. Helix Native features all the amp, cab, and effects models of Helix and Helix Rack, as well as IR loading. Its presets are fully compatible with Helix and Helix Rack hardware so you can effortlessly transfer your tones from the studio to the stage and back again.

What plug-in formats are supported?
Mac and Windows, 64-bit VST3/VST2, AU, and AAX.

Will it work with iLok?
Helix Native is authorized through Line 6 License Manager which can be downloaded from There is no licensing available through iLok.

How many computers can I install Helix Native on with a single license?
Licensing is tied to your Line 6 account and up to four computers can share a single license.

Is there a demo version to try out?
A free trial will be made available and is fully functional for 15 days.

How many parameters can be automated?
Parameters and/or block bypass states can be automated by assigning them to automation channels in your DAW (up to 16 per instance).

I don’t get it. Why would you offer all that Helix goodness in a plug-in?
Because it’s the right thing to do. Helix is all about elegant solutions to musicians’ problems, and the studio-to-stage-and-back promise was too big of a deal not to pursue. Have you ever tried to nail every guitar tone on your record for an upcoming tour? With Helix Native, potentially weeks of work could be condensed down to a minute or two.

What does Helix Native cost?
Helix Native sells for $399 USD. However, to hammer home the whole studio-to-stage thing, we’re offering a discount to registered Helix and Helix Rack owners; they can purchase Helix Native for $99. Existing POD Farm customers are eligible for certain discounts as well (TBD).

When and where?
Helix Native will be available on the Line 6 store ( in Spring of 2017

En vous souhaitant une bonne année 2017 !!! afro
