Designed for electric guitarists, the Line 6 HX Stomp is a guitar processor in a stompbox format, one that delivers the sound of Line 6's Helix products. It's equally suited for playing through pedalboard/amp setups or for going direct in house and recording scenarios.
The box employs the same modeling technology and DSP found in the Helix systems, giving you over 300 amplifiers, cabinets, and effects. You'll also note the legacy effects from earlier items such as the DL4, and a built-in looper, which offers 60 seconds of mono looping time or 30 seconds of stereo.
For connections, the pedal offers stereo 1/4" I/O, a stereo send/return path, a headphone output, MIDI I/O, an expression output, and USB connectivity. The inputs and outputs can carry either instrument- or line-level signal, making the box compatible with stringed instruments and synths alike. The HX Stomp also functions as a USB interface for recording and reamping, giving you 24-bit / 96 kHz conversion for multichannel audio, as well as MIDI connectivity.
