More than 100 HX effects—plus IR support.
HX Effects features more than 100 of the same effects featured in our Helix guitar processors, including distortions, delays, reverbs, modulations, pitch/synth/filters, compressors/limiters, EQs, wahs, and an on-board looper. HX Effects also lets you load custom impulse responses (IRs), allowing you to customize your sound even further.
INDUSTRY-LEADING DYNAMIC RANGE
Pristine sound quality and responsiveness.
HX Effects features an industry-leading 123dB of dynamic range for tremendous depth and ultra-low noise. Each effect is delivered with pristine sound quality to ensure an authentic and responsive playing experience.
TRUE BYPASS SWITCHING
Nothing comes between you and your tone.
HX Effects features selectable analog bypass switching to ensure your tone isn’t compromised when the pedal is bypassed.
CAPACITIVE TOUCH FOOTSWITCHES
Quickly select and edit effects.
Eight capacitive-sensing footswitches with color-coded LED rings, and six LED scribble scrips enable intuitive effect selection and editing. Simply touch a footswitch with your finger to instantly jump to any effect and quickly adjust its parameters. Touch two switches to swap them. And touch and hold a switch to display all parameters across the LCDs to see everything at once.
ROBUST ROUTING AND I/O
Seamless integration with your rig.
HX Effects is easily integrated into existing pedalboard and studio rigs thanks to robust routing and control options, including parallel stereo signal paths, two assignable effects loops (stereo linkable), two expression pedal inputs, and up to four amp switching outputs.
SWITCHABLE INSTRUMENT/LINE INPUTS
Connect any instrument, and more.
A switchable line-level input enables keyboardists, DJs, and producers to connect electronic instruments or use HX Effects as an outboard processor in the studio.
A command center for your entire rig.
Like Helix multi-effects processors, HX Effects can act as the command center for your entire rig. Communicate with other pedals or your DAW software via MIDI DIN or USB MIDI, and control your amps from up to four amp switching outputs—all from HX Effects.
