Line 6 Helix Native Explained® is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 4 .
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Quick and to the point.... Familiarizes you with the "How to" of the plugin in a direct manner.... Note: what it does not do is explore all the sounds - i.e. there is no run down of all the amps/effects and how they sound and/or how they vary.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Overall very useful! I thought it was quite good at explaining many of the features and capabilities of Helix Native. I got a bit confused on the automation section, but probably more me than the explanations.
