Workhorse Collections

The OwnHammer Workhorse libraries are the flagship products in the OwnHammer catalog. The ultimate composite of quality AND quantity, optimization AND diversity, the content within is simply unparalleled by every possible metric. The included options are all presented in common language terminology that anyone can understand and relate to, with a sonic clarity, familiarity, and application result that everyone will love.

Library features at a glance:
  • 60 cabinets
  • 5 multi-element (cabinets AND speakers) mixes
  • each of the above contain 6 varied and different sounding voicings (mic configurations)
  • primary 5 voicings have 5 different brightness/darkness levels (mic placement)
  • hyper simplistic and separately organized "Summary" voicing section
  • 1 to 3 included speaker options (library dependent)

As mentioned above, all product links below direct to the Line 6 website.

Developer Favorite

No. Workhorse IR's 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. These libraries will never be made available in wave audio (.wav) format, and are currently only available through the Line 6 Marketplace web store. Should other similar guitar/bass amp & effects technology hardware and/or software vendors also create a mechanism for delivering license/copy protected add-on content for their platforms in the way Line 6 has with the Line 6 Marketplace, these libraries may very likely be made available for them as well, but only under this condition and in a protected content format.

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 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.
