In comparison to other modeling units; the Helix is by far the best dollar for dollar. I really think you get the most for your money compared to other popular items like the Kemper or Fractal. I feel like the modeling patches are just as good and without the steep price you have to pay for a Fractal. The unit is incredibly intuitive and easy to use. I think it make be one of the easiest to use that Line 6 has put out in a few years. If you're looking for a unit that does it all THIS IS IT.
