Line 6, Inc. today announced the launch of Marketplace, an online store where users of the Helix guitar processor and HX products can purchase premium presets and impulse responses (IRs) created by select third-party vendors.
“We are extremely excited to officially open Marketplace,” said Adrian Haselhuber, Director of Product Management, Line 6. “With these unique sounds, Helix and HX product users can explore many new creative options. Thanks to the enthusiastic support of our development partner community, the expanding Helix and HX platforms are poised to become even more beneficial to musicians.”
At the Marketplace (line6.com/marketplace) players can purchase Line 6-approved presets that exploit the full power of the Helix and HX platforms, as well as impulse responses that clone the tones of countless speaker cabinets. Initial Marketplace partners include loudspeaker manufacturer Celestion, IR creators 3 Sigma Audio, OwnHammer and Live Ready, and sound designers Ben R Vesco, Chad Huskey, Choptones, Craig Anderton, Eric Broadbent, Fremen, Glenn DeLaune, Joe Gore, Jason Sadites, Peter Hamm, Robbie Calvo, Chad Boston, and Simone Gianlorenzi.
Marketplace products are compatible with Helix Floor, Helix Rack, Helix LT, the Helix Native plug-in, HX Effects, and HX Stomp. Musicians can use the free HX Edit software to install Marketplace presets and impulse responses.
Marketplace will help the network of third-party vendors forge new relationships with customers.
