Want $500 of free recording software? Of course you do.

Line 6 has teamed up with Steinberg to offer a free bundle of professional recording software. Until the end of February 2022, anyone who buys a Line 6 Helix amp and effects processor can also get a package that includes a full version of Cubase Elements free and the Helix Native plugin free download.

The free bundle has a focus on guitar recording – qualifying products include the Helix Floor, Helix LT, Helix Rack and Helix Control, which are amp and effects processors that create guitar tones that are professional and soulful.

For a limited time, you get a free download of Cubase Elements, the powerful DAW worth $100 that’s used in recording studios around the world.

Helix Native meanwhile is a sound design plugin that offers retro amp and mic effects. It would normally set you back $399.99.

The deal is available from now until February 28th 2022. Find out more here.
