And more! Visit the Line 6 website for more details. You can download the free Helix 2.81 Update from that website. The Helix Native 1.81 Update is also free to download from the Line 6 website. It includes the following new features:

HELIX/HX Preset Sharing—Helix Floor, Helix Rack/Control, Helix LT, Helix Native, HX Effects, and HX Stomp all now live within the same ecosystem. Using multiple windows within HX Edit and/or multiple instances within the Helix Native plug-in, individual blocks and entire presets can be freely dragged and dropped or copied and pasted between units. Aside from a few obvious caveats, all Helix and HX products can now share the same content

Hardware Compatibility Modes—Helix Native can now reflect the signal flow and model set of all Helix and HX hardware devices, so transferring presets to and from your DAW is even easier. In addition, Hardware Compatibility can be disabled, so the simultaneous model count is now limited only by the capacity of your computer

Undo/Redo—New Undo and Redo buttons have been added to the right of the Snapshots pull-down

MIDI Learn—Right-click on a parameter and select Controller Assign > MIDI Learn. A brain icon flashes. Send Helix Native a MIDI CC and the parameter is automatically assigned. (Note: Depending on your DAW, your track may not be set up for MIDI control)
