Product Description

The HX Stomp XL is an expanded version of Line 6's best-selling HX Stomp amp and effects processor. Boasting 8 capacitative-touch footswitches rather than just 3, this tactile "super stompbox" offers greater real-time control than the standard unit yet still maintains a compact, pedalboard-friendly form-factor (smaller than two HX Stomps) — making it practical for any performing or recording scenario!

Helix 3.60 Firmware – What’s New?

The Helix 3.60 firmware update for Helix and HX hardware devices introduces three new amplifiers, including the Grammatico GSG, seven new guitar speaker cabinets featuring 12" speakers in various combinations, two new bass cabs, and two new effects:

Amps:

  • Grammatico GSG: Based on the Grammatico GSG100
  • Line 6 Elmsley: Line 6 Original
  • Agua Sledge: Based on the Aguilar Tone Hammer

Guitar Cabs (Single & Dual Versions):

  • 1x12 Blue Bell: Captured from a 1x12" Vox AC-15 Blue Alnico
  • 1x12 Open Cream: Captured from a custom 1x12" open-back cab G12M-65
  • 1x12 Open Cast: Captured from a custom 1x12" open-back cab EVM12L
  • 2x12 Silver Bell: Captured from a 2x12" Vox AC-30TB Silver Alnico

  • 2x12 Match G25: Captured from a 2x12" Matchless DC-30 custom G12M-25
  • 4x12 Greenback 20: Captured from a 4x12" Marshall "basketweave" G12M-20

  • 1x12 Epicenter: Captured from a 1x12" Epifani Ultralight series
  • 4x10 Ampeg Pro: Captured from a 4x10" Ampeg PR-410HLF

Effects:

  • Triple Rotary (Mono, Stereo): Based on the Yamaha RA-200 rotary speaker (used by Pink Floyd)

All-Encompassing Guitar Processor

Use HX Stomp XL as a complete guitar/bass workstation, a backup for your main rig, an add-on tone expander with other modellers or even as a professional-quality audio interface. The HX Stomp XL’s 'Command Centre' functionality, MIDI capabilities and external expression pedal jack also make it an ideal master controller for your entire setup. There's almost nothing it can't do!

300+ Amp, Cabs & Effects!

HX Stomp XL comes equipped with more than 300 amps, cabs and effects — catering for even the most demanding and musically-diverse of players. The 128 factory presets include both vintage and modern sounds based on highly-coveted gear, and there are also presets created specifically for bassists.

Authentic Modelling

HX modelling digitally mirrors the circuitry of analogue amps and effects, component by component. Every model sounds and feels realistic, including notoriously hard-to-capture devices like vintage fuzzes and modulation effects. Simply put, the HX Stomp XL nails the much-desired analogue "vibe".

Powerful SHARC DSP Chip

Featuring the same SHARC DSP chip found in Line 6's flagship Helix products, the HX Stomp XL can run up to 8 processing 'blocks' simultaneously. The extra assignable footswitches let you access and control these blocks in more powerful and efficient ways, meaning that the HX Stomp XL is simply designed to be more flexible for use onstage than the original HX Stomp.

Additional Appointments

Extra intuitive features include a choice of true bypass and DSP bypass with trails, a stereo effects loop that allows you to integrate external pedals or employ 4-cable method, a jack for two external footswitches or an expression pedal, third-party IR support, and a multi-channel 24-bit/96kHz USB audio interface.

'HX Edit' App

The free 'HX Edit' app lets you easily create, save and load presets, as well as customise nearly all pedal parameters. It’s also a preset librarian, IR loader, and more! This app enables you to extract the most from HX Stomp XL.

What Else Does HX Stomp XL Do?

The Line HX Stomp XL has some other small advantages over the standard HX Stomp. Hands-free 'Pedal Edit' mode let you tweak presets with your feet, there are 4 snapshots per preset rather than 3, and you can access the '6 Switch Looper' without needing an external MIDI controller. Other than that, it's HX Stomp but with 5 extra switches!
