Coming from the Axe-FX world to Kemper I am familiar with both.
Last time I played anything from Line6 was a kidney POD.
I always read about Helix as something that's highly regarded.
I even heard from some players on The Gear Page that they went from Kemper to Helix and they are very happy.
So I gave it a spin today and I just don't get it, it just sounds terrible to me, very Lo-Fi, muffled and it doesn't sit in any mix.
Suddenly I feel like I am back in the POD days.
Maybe it's OK in live use, I don't know.
I just wonder, anyone here liking Helix?
What am I missing?
Mind you I play clean and edge of break up tones usually, nothing high gain.
I don't like any of the presets, I did dial in a Dumble and a Princeton setup that was passable but not great.
