Digitech : is this a fringe TGP concept that wouldn't stand a chance to market?

    I'd love to see a new Digitech flagship floor unit that incorporated at least some (if not all) of those effects...especially the reverbs from the Supernatural.

    EHX seems to be doing the same thing, with their Epitome, Tone Tattoo, and Turnip Greens units. See also T-rex and Tech21.

    I don't think the idea is fringe at all.

    I've said it before but I personally think that the current modeling/mfx paradigm is a dead scene. Chasing after the ultimate model of a Vox AC30 is tilting at windmills and I'd like to see the technology "grow up" and find it's own voice.

    Whether or not my personal views are going to be strong enough to influence modeling/mfx dev remains to be seen...

    Agree to some extent regarding Amp Modeling, especially with the Kemper on the scene. However, Digitech has created a ton of incredible effects over the years and guitarists are still very interested in effects especially with the continued fall of traditional guitar styles in pop music and rise of much more open and experimental tones/styles. You have a contingent who continuously is begging for a Space Station, why not release a new compact multi unit combining those sounds with some of your other innovative stuff such as the Time Bender, Harmony Man, Supernatural, the excellent Echoplex model in the RP line, etc? that's my dream Digitech device at this point, something along the size of a G3 or M9 from Digitech chock full of effects running the gamut from detune of the Lux to the pitch bent pattern tremolos of the Time Bender and beyond.

    Agree with wills reply to you as well.

    I agree about it being like chasing ghosts to imitate amps, but I was kinda getting at all of digitechs current original line of distortions, mods, time, post boosts, comps, etc in a multi.

    No modeling at all

    Well, I want the modeling, just not necessarily the amp modeling (though I don't mind it either as I do employ amp modeling). I get that from a business perspective, why bundle everything into a more affordable unit when there's more profit in selling it piece meal. But I'd love to see a compact floor unit from Digitech with the mindset you guys had in the earlier days of the RP units (putting the powerful effects of racks on the floor).

    I am more interested in a company putting R&D into trying to separate out any parameters digitally, than trying to achieve a specific known model.

    If you want a Vox ac30, they are available. Why try to do in digital what we can already do? The versatility of course, but I don't really need that. I find 'the clean' and 'the crunch' etc. I want and I'm happy.

    Rather, I wish someone would just break down the models into their constituent digital emulating parts:
    Pre-amp - gain, grit, compression
    Power-amp - gain, grit, compression
    Speaker - power rating, point of breakup
    tube type per pre and power amp stage

    Stuff like that.

    From my discussion with them recently, the plan is to create a new flagship multi based off the RP360XP. That unit has a lot going for it and I think if they dropped two AudioDNA chips in a more functional unit, it would be amazing.

    Isn't that's pretty much what BIAS and Revalver do?

    Yes, I think so. I thought we were talking about dedicated hardware units.

    I would love to have all the FX from the Hardwire series in programmable box. I didn't care much for the OD/Dist in that series but Digitech in general have a long lineage of great FX IMO.
