Browse Helix Models and Effects

Helix currently supports 72 amplifier models, 194 effects, 37 speaker cab models, and 16 microphones. On top of all that you also have the ability to load Impulse Responses (IRs) that you can grab from free or paid sources. Go have fun.

Shimmer (Line 6 Original)

Shimmer, the Helix model of a Line 6 Original

Stock delay settings. Sample played with a Charvel Classic 475 using the Deluxe Reverb Helix model at default amp and cab settings.

Line 6 Original shimmer reverb. Line 6 originally planned to release Shimmer as two distinctly different reverbs—Luster and Sheen—but combining them into a single model and letting you seamlessly switch back and forth via a footswitch or snapshots seemed cooler.


  • Type—Determines the type of shimmer effect applied:

    • "Luster"—More of a traditional, reverb pedal-type shimmer effect with tighter definition in the lustery bits
    • "Sheen" (default)—More of a lush, studio plugin-type shimmer effect with a massive, sheeny bloom

  • Mix—Controls the wet/dry mix of the reverb. When set to 0%, no reverb is heard; when set to 100%, no dry signal is heard
  • Decay—Sets the decay of the reverb (0.1 sec ~ 45.0 sec or Infinity)
  • Predelay—Determines the amount of delay heard before the signal enters the room. Can sometimes result in more definition between the dry and effected signals
  • Room Size—Sets the size of the room (10, 20, or 30 meters)
  • Damping—Determines the frequency above which the reverb will be absorbed
  • Diffusion—Sets the amount of smearing between discrete echoes, sometimes resulting in a softer effected signal
  • Motion—Sets the amount of randomization, which can be helpful to minimize any metallic artifacts common in static reverbs. At higher values, can impart a bit of modulation to the effected signal
  • Low Cut—Applies a low cut (or high pass) filter to the reverb, letting you remove the effected signal below a certain frequency
  • High Cut—Applies a high cut (or low pass) filter to the reverb, letting you remove the effected signal above a certain frequency
  • Level—Controls the overall output level of the block
  • Trails—When set to "Off," the reverb decay is instantly muted when the block is bypassed. When set to "On," the reverb continues to decay naturally when the block is bypassed or a different snapshot is selected
