    We don’t control pricing at retail so we did not drop any pricing. We always have stuff at NAMM but if the inference is Helix hw will be replaced that is incorrect. Helix is still very young.

    Maybe a new combo with HD models and FRFR speakers.
    Call it the new Scorpion line.

    Yes, I would assume something non-Helixy since the Helix line only has limited appeal among the majority of people who have already gone Fractal.

    A Helix combo would be too expensive to compete directly with the Katana. It would only take an HD Spider to cancel out the Katana.

    I thought he was referring to the new line of Line 6 "marital aids".

    Helix bean. Just for old time’s sake. The POD was released 20 years ago this year. It was groundbreaking and it’s now iconic. A 20th anniversary Helix version would be a very cool way for Line 6 to lose money.

    Sounds like the Native Instruments Guitar Rig interface. I have that and it sound really good.

    I would be totally on that, but it ain’t gonna happen because they would be skipping HD modeling altogether which IIRC they still haven’t put in a combo yet. The newest Spyder amps are still running pre-HD modeling.

    Rackmount effects only Helix?

    It would get my immediate preorder (cash waiting!)

    Fractal Firmware Helix edition. That would be groundbreaking news :)

    There already is a rack mount Helix that you could use as FX only. The Amp sims don't have to be used, so somehow I don't see them releasing something like that when an existing product can do it.

    If its hardware, my money is on a new Variax [ please a Tele Variax :) ] and/or a small "pod sized" Helix and/or a new light-weight-as-in-not-heavy FRFR.

    +1 on Variax. Don't care for the actual guitar, just want new modeling, or at the very least a major firmware update.
