HX Stomp Step Beyond

The HX Stomp amp and effects processor may be used as a “super stompbox,” a backup or travel rig, an add-on tone expander with other modelers, an audio interface—or a complete guitar or bass rig. Although compact in size, it delivers the same professional-grade sound quality and authentic HX® Modeling found in our market-leading Helix® processors.

Super Stompbox

One powerful pedal


Barely larger than many conventional pedals, HX Stomp features over 300 amps, cabs, and effects from Helix, M-Series, and legacy Line 6 products—up to six simultaneously. Three capacitive-sensing footswitches with color-coded LED rings facilitate easy preset selection and editing. Connect optional footswitches and expression pedals for even greater control, and integrate your favorite pedals into any preset’s signal path by patching them into the two effects loops. You can also dial in amps and effects, save and load presets, and much more with the free HX Edit application.

Backup or Travel Rig

Play the gig with a single stompbox


HX Stomp is both a complete backup solution and the ultimate travel rig. Go direct to FOH or to any backline amp with ease—even use 4-Cable Method. Access up to six amp, cab, effect, and IR blocks simultaneously, so you’ll never have to worry about getting the tones you need. You’ll even be able to lay down tracks in your hotel room after the show using the built-in audio interface.

Bass Rig

Not just for guitarists.


HX Stomp offers a wealth of guitar tones in a tiny package—but there’s a lot there to like for bassists too. From stunning models of Acoustic 360 and Ampeg SVT heads to Mesa/Boogie Powerhouse and Sunn Coliseum cabs to effects such as the Musitronics Mu-Tron III and the Darkglass B7K Ultra—HX Stomp covers the bottom end. And this is flexible low end: Send your effected direct signal to the house while feeding a real amp, or create two entirely different signal paths for a dreamy bass tone that will still rattle the rafters.

Tone Expander

Add some HX magic to your modeler.


Place the HX Stomp guitar pedal in the effects loop of your favorite third-party modeler or profiler, and you’ve instantly added over 70 amps and 200 effects to your palette, including classics such as the Fender Bassman, Bogner Uberschall, Klon Centaur, and Maestro Echoplex EP-3. The six processing blocks in HX Stomp run in addition to your device’s own DSP power, so you gain up to six more simultaneous amps and effects. And in many cases, you can sync presets, tempo, and other parameters using a single MIDI cable.

USB Audio Interface.

Record, re-amp, and more.


With a generous 123dB of dynamic range, HX Stomp doubles as an ultra-low noise DSP-powered USB audio interface, offering 24-bit/96kHz multi-channel audio—and MIDI connectivity—for Mac and Windows® computers. There’s also a flexible input impedance circuit for realistic amp and pedal response, and built-in DI and re-amping capabilities. Adding the optional Apple Camera Connection Kit enables you to record directly to your Apple iPhone or iPad.
