I feel like I am completely done with the concept of "ooh look at the famous amps we model" that digital modeling has been built on. I was making some FM3 presets from scratch yesterday and was just increasingly less interested in what exact amp models I was going to use as long as the right sound came out of the unit. If the Fractal platform never received another amp model I would be totally good with that. There's a big pile of overlap in what is on offer already so for me the "more more more" does not appeal. Pare it down to what is unique instead.Sort of a weird product... Same price range as the Spider series except a lot less featured with no mention of G10T support, limited to two effects, only a two button ftsw, etc. The draw over the Spiders would be that it has HX quality models, but it's rando generic models... I don't get it.
"Get our best HX modeling boutique combo amp, but we know we can't charge boutique prices so here you go for our practice amp price. Hopefully you try it next to some boutique amps at the store and decide it's cheap and good enough to buy into modeling."
Smells a little like a Yamaha-driven product...? It's basically a THD100 combo. And the Editor has knobs, apparently DI didn't get to have his hand in it with sliders.
Well, this seems premature.
HX Edit is not coming to mobile devices. The user would HAVE to also have the Camera Connection Kit for iOS, since there is no bluetooth in Helix.
On Katana master volume affects the tone, like on a “real amp”, so, like on a “real amp” you use built-in “power attenuation” to be able to get the “cranked master tone” at lower volumes.
I find the master knob on the Katana doesn't affect power amp clipping at all, it stays clean until the end of time, VERY similar to the colossal old tube amps that many of us love.On Katana master volume affects the tone, like on a “real amp”, so, like on a “real amp” you use built-in “power attenuation” to be able to get the “cranked master tone” at lower volumes.
Bet it’s the same here, as it’s a blatant copy of Katana (not necessarily a bad thing)
