$1499 USD....
That's a lot of money for a bit of gear with the Line 6 logo on it.

Am very interested to see what it's like.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to know more about it. Line 6 have really built themselves into the affordable niche in the market, but this is definitely pushing towards premium pricing. Does look very cool though.

But I only just decided to go back to amp and pedals! :lol:

That looks like the proverbial "do everything" box. That looks slick as feck. Also like the fact that it was all about the UI, which is always a struggle with these things I reckon.

I suppose the question is whether they're expecting it to take on Fractal. If so, they're still undercutting them by a decent margin I assume (not knowing anything about Fractal pricing in USD). But then, they're still Line 6 (or L6Yamaha?), so there's a marketing disconnect there already.

Bloody slick website though! :D

This is indeed designed to be an Axe-FX killer.

They have ground up redesigned the way they do modelling. (i.e. this models in more or less the same way as an Axe FX.)
It's got a shit-ton of DSP horsepower, the feature-set is just wild, it LOOKS amazing..... and it's 2/3 the price of an Axe.

I'm pretty excited about this. If it sounds HALF as good as it looks on paper (and I'm confident it will), we're gonna sell a ton of these!!!

The Fractal FX8 is US$1350, it doesn't have amp modelling though. They are planning to a floor unit with amp modelling called AX8 in the future, but my guess is the Helix will ship before that.
