1/4" outputs to aux in - line or instrument?

For now I'm running my Helix into the "aux in" of my Boss Katana Air.  

 

Do I set the 1/4" outputs to "line" or leave them as instrument?  I've found conflicting information on this at various other places, so thought I would come here to get a definitive answer.

 

Thanks!

probably does not matter too much....it's most likely 1:1, high impedance buffer like the LS2...I've hit them with both ways...Line is usually better when available as you tend to get a lower noise floor....An LS-2 has a trim to match up to instrument...not sure what that thing has, but Boss does buffers pretty well...try both, pick the best sounding one...most likely Line Level.

You could have gone to Boss and checked out the spec for the correct answer.

 

Katana Air Aux In is specified as -10dBu on a stereo mini jack.

 

Also, using headphones out is just wrong.

 

Hope this helps/makes sense.
