No. Libraries in this category contain files that are in Line 6's ".hir" file format, which is a proprietary encryption only readable by the Line 6 products built to accept this file type. This currently includes the "Helix Core" group: Helix hardware and software, HX hardware, and POD Go.

No. The content in this category will never be made available in wave audio (.wav) format, and at the current time are only available through the Line 6 Marketplace web store.

From your account (1), click on Marketplace Downloads (2), then on the library you wish to download (3):

The same way as wave audio (.wav) files. Please see the Helix Tutorials page for additional information. If you continue to have issues loading files, Line 6 support can be reached at:

First and foremost, content sold in the Line 6 Marketplace is copy protect encrypted. In order to load Marketplace IR's and Presets into a compatible Line 6 hardware device or software program, the latter needs to be registered to the same account that the IR's/Presets are purchased from and assigned to. More often than not, those experiencing a license error simply have not registered their hardware/software yet, and doing so will resolve the licensing error.

The specifics are considered proprietary, and the relevant disclosable information can be found in the "IR Voicings" section of the PDF documentation included with the purchased library from the Line 6 Marketplace.

The Workhorse Collections provide many unique opportunities, one of which being the omission of misspelled and "based on" inferences to the names/trademarks of other entities that in no way participated in nor benefit monetarily from the sale of OwnHammer intellectual property.

In addition to the suggestive text used for the titles, digital graphic likenesses for each Workhorse cabinet are currently being developed to contribute to representing them, and will be linked to here when available.

The price point per library is dependent on the amount of content provided. $19.99 priced libraries have one "speaker option" section, where $29.99 priced libraries have three. Thereby the higher priced libraries have 300% total content for an only 50% increase in price.

No, and for several reasons:
  • The maximum amount of IR's that can mixed within Helix and HX patches via split/parallel impulse response blocks is 2, to which the Multi-Speaker Mixdown files are comprised of 4 independently leveled components.

  • All of the files are mixed by ear, and all end up leveled at different values as a result. Mixing the "X" files will not garner the same sound.

  • The IR's are mixed in ways using procedures and tools not possible outside of OwnHammer development, again resulting in a unique sound.

  • Using multiple impulse response blocks results in their resolution halving to 1024 samples, where Multi-Speaker Mixdown files only use 1 block and stand at a resolution of the full 2048 samples.

  • Units like Pod GO do not allow for multiple cabinet blocks, thus any kind of mixing is not possible.

As can be observed, the results the Multi-Speaker Mixdown libraries achieve cannot be recreated, thus their necessity as separate sales items.

No. OwnHammer Line 6 Marketplace content are separate and unique products exclusively sold and supported by Line 6 - a financially and operationally independent company from OwnHammer - and do not translate to or entitle one to anything sold on the OwnHammer website.
