I've been an owner and user of both multi-effects and stomp-box pedalboard setups for years and have always been at odds over which to use at any particular time. The HXFX is the next evolution in pedalboard multi-effects, complete with next-gen customization that solves many of the limitations of the old M-series effects units. I currently run mine as part of my pedalboard alongside some compression and drive pedals; I feel like this is where this unit thrives. I use the unit primarily for delay, reverb and mod, but wouldn't hesitate to use it stand-alone for a lighter setup. The unit has enough DSP that I never feel limited by what I am able to create. 9 effects with options for parallel routing has amazing creative potential. The computer interface makes editing, saving and backing up presets easier; however the unit is easy enough to edit on the fly once you take the time to learn where all the settings are.

I have owned mine since March and have used the HX Effects on dozens of gigs since purchasing. The HX is extremely flexible and sounds great... it has yet to leave me wanting more from the unit. Everything I need to do is possible, and I run some complex "multi instruments" setups. I must respectfully disagree with the "Windsor" review... this is NOT the same as past offerings from Line 6. The Overdrives and compressors are fabulous on this device and I have not missed (or touched) my analog drives since I bought the HX. L6 had a noise issue on some early release units but they will replace those if you got/get one... otherwise, there is no noise issue to speak of. Often overlooked is the routing... with the capability of up to 6 individual ins/outs and two signal paths this thing is a lot more than a multi fx if you use your imagination.

The range of effects is impressive. However, the unit is noisy, the Overdrives and Distortion Effects are horrible, coarse and lack any sensitivity at all. Its the one Area that Line 6 has had an issue with going back the the POD series. There is no real amp warmth to the effects which is so characteristic of most digital effects.Plugged into the effects return of a Mesa Boogie and Hot Rod there is a lot of noise that comes with the unit.

*The following is my opinion only, take it with a grain of salt please!* I'd had a typical pedal board for years, assuming that real pedals would always be better than these effects boards. Until one day I was suggesting the helix models - specifically the HX Effect by a very good friend and much Superior guitar player. I will never go back. I ended up selling every pedal on my board (except my Crybaby and BeatBuddy). This board is absolutely jaw-dropping and *brace for cliche* game-changing. You may be thinking that the price is quite Hefty, but it's the price of about 3 or 4 boss pedals and you get 100+ unique pedals in this board overall. Once again you may disagree with me, but chances are if you're reading this review you're thinking about making the change that I did. I highly suggest it.

I'm a long time owner of the Line 6 M9. That is a great unit. But I dare say the HX Effects may be a "game changer" (an overused phrase, I know). The HX maintains the dry signal better than the M9 and offers an across the board improvement in effects quality (even on the Legacy effects). In particular, the delays and reverbs are stellar. I own the Boss DD500 and I prefer the delays offered in the HX. While there are less "whacky" sounds available (i.e., no equivalent of the Terra Echo), the ease of dialing great sounds is really impressive. I've tended to shy away from anything that requires manuals, programming, etc. But the HX is really intuitive. And it seems like Line 6 has really anticipated users' needs in terms of functionality. One last note: The drive and fuzz sounds in the M9 were poor to okay. The drive and fuzz sounds in the HX are really great. I own the Paul C Timmy and can attest that the HX model will get you 95% there. I also own a King of Tone and can say that several of the HX drives hold up really well in comparison. The HX version of the Xotic SP Comp outperforms my actual SP Comp. The "Kinky Boost" is a real standout. Well done, Line 6!

I picked this up hearing good things about the effects taken from the Helix The routing options are great and the Hx takes up minimal space on my board. Contrary to what others may say this is NOT an updated m9 but part of the Helix line of products from Line 6. The effects sound great and it is fairly easy to program. I am still trying to figure out how to use the HX to change channels on my amp but am confident I'll figure it out . One more thing is some people complain about the cost of the unit,but for what you get- that will buy you roughly 4 boss pedals ,with the HX you get so much more. Highly recommended !
