Line 6 HX Stomp XL Multi-Effects Pedal - Black

Line 6


HX Stomp, Expanded

The HX Stomp XL amp and effects processor delivers HX® modeling in a performance-ready pedal with eight capacitive-touch footswitches. The same SHARC® DSP chip found in Helix® enables it to run up to eight processing blocks simultaneously, and the footswitches let you access and control those blocks in powerful ways.

Footswitches 1-6

These capacitive-touch footswitches feature color LED rings that convey footswitch assignments and status at-a-glance.


Press Mode to toggle between Stomp and Preset footswitch modes. Hold Mode for one second to engage Pedal Edit mode, which lets you edit effects with your feet.


Press two or more times to tap in the BPM (beats per minute) of any tempo-based effects such as delay or modulation. Press and hold for one second to open the Tuner.

Knobs 1-3

In Edit view, turn one of the three knobs below the main display to adjust the value of the parameter above it. Press the knob to reset the parameter value. If a rectangular button appears above a knob, press that knob to engage its function.
