saw it on my friend's facebook, I don't have any info thou
Obligatory "ZOMG HELIX KILLER BRAH!!111" post out of the way.
Poop it out, move on to the next product
Nice to see they figured out the UI on the GE200 was all kinds of rubbish with its single value knob.
It's TGP, so I figured I'd jump on that sword, so others don't have to. It's my gift to the community.
Seriously though, it does look like a snazzy box, and the preamp pedals they do actually sound good. So perhaps these do too.
As much as I like brushed aluminum, I think black lettering would have been a better silkscreen choice
At first look...
I looks cool until that shiny silver surface reflects the all stage lights or the sun back in your face.
I hope this means more updates to the ge200 in the future
in B4 Sascha trashes it
It needs one more knob.
I'm waiting for the onslaught of Xela's vs. posts
@mrboston already has a skin for it. Buy it now.
And it looks like it's got all the goodies like XLR and MIDI and even an on/off switch , very promising indeed (Zoom could learn something from this...)
Why would I? As LaXu said, they adressed the most crucial issue of the 200, the missing knobs. The reflecting surface might get critical - but the GT-10 is similar and never bothered me.
The featureset will be quite interesting to see, though.
Well lets see.... my guess is $449
Hm, maybe this is the 500 bucks modeler people are always asking for.
In case they implemented things right, they might have a winner on their hands as there's not much up to date modeling in that price range. The size might be quite gigbag-friendly, too.
Ok, I'm taking a guess: This will be exactly like the GE200 but with somewhat more horsepower, more knobs and better connectivity to the outside world. The interface looks just the same. Single signal path with probably not too much options to modify sounds but some kinda stomp box mode. I'd almost take a bet that it won't come with some nifty options to adjust sounds globally (such as Fractals global blocks, the Kempers lock feature or the Boss GT-1000s stompboxes) and it probably won't be either as powerful or designed well enough to allow you to get through a gig comfortably with just a single preset (such as possibe with the Helix). As a result, people with whatever needs to quickly adjust their general patch layout kinda last minute style won't be happy.
I'd happily be proven wrong, but with the GE200 all my predictions were pretty much right. Mooer is delivering plenty of VFM but they're not exactly forward thinking.
Isn't the warranty still a bit sketchy for anyone living in the states? Lack of repair centers, customer support and such? In my few days of owning the GE200, the realization that Mooer support had a minimal presence in the US was a bit unsettling...
well this came out of nowhere
but I am not exited at all
I don't know
maybe it is a price thing
