The Catalyst CX 100 is a 100-watt, 2-channel, 1×12 combo amplifier with Helix-derived 12-amp voicings. It operates like a traditional guitar amp, but at the same time offers the versatility of a modern amp.

12 Amps Derived from Helix
The Catalyst® CX family consists of three 2-channel combination amplifiers that function like traditional guitar amps while offering the great versatility of modern amplifiers. They feature 12 amp voicings (ranging from pristine cleans to modern high gain) derived from the award-winning Helix® amp and effects processor, and each amp voicing is tuned with a custom boost type. Additionally, there are 24 HX® quality effects across 4 effect categories. Other features include durable quality construction, a tap/tuner button, an XLR line output, an effects loop, power amp input for using Catalyst CX as an active speaker, MIDI capability, a 2-channel USB recording interface, and power output options. The free Catalyst Edit app for desktop and mobile devices provides comprehensive editing capabilities. From the 200-watt Catalyst CX 200 for use on almost any stage to the 60-watt Catalyst CX 60 for practicing, recording, and performing in small venues, there's a Catalyst CX amp player for everyone.

Channel Select
There are two channels that may be configured individually and their settings saved. Press the CH A or CH B button to select a channel. Press the Manual button to enter Manual mode, which is independent of the two channels, and use the controls as you would on a traditional amp.
