The Cab block has size/count filtering. I.e. you can filter by 1x10, 2x12, etc.
I think the touch-screen on the Headrush is far superior than navigating on a Helix product.
We use them everyday on our phones, computers, cars, appliances...
I can take parameter values from zero to 100 by moving my finger two inches on a touch-screen and fine tune with an encoder knob if needed.
I bought my Gigboard for the tones but the touch-screen is impressive and simple to use.
Have a snickers man
Knew you would get me back Phil. Good one.
My post was actually a comment on the human condition.
I think the gigboard sucks at texting though. HR is still light years behind the iPhone.
IT'S LIKE I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU ANYMORE
Great demo, but...
I can’t trust a guy who doesn’t put a bar in his vibrato bridge. So who knows?
Yes, the II can instantiate more blocks and has Tone Matching, more I/O options, and can run dual amps and cabs. In my opinion, most people don't really use dual amps and I don't see a lot of people using dual stereo cabs, either. Likewise, and most unfortunately, a lot of people don't use one of the II's most powerful weapons; Tone Matching. Incidentally, I'm hopeful that more people will begin to realize just how awesome that tool is. Anyway, I digress.
As for Ares, the III has already seen several updates to the modeling since the version for the II was released. Again, yes, you can instantiate more effects blocks, however the quality of the effects (especially the drive blocks now) are not on par with the III's implementation, to my ears anyway. In the case of the II, compared to the FM3, it's basically quantity over quality. And with the II being EOL, the gap in qualitative differences can only get wider.
I built my main Axe III preset on it in 5 minutes while I was at Axefest last weekend. It’s an awesome unit. Having the display screen and cab block from the III is enough to sell me. But having Ares amp modeling in a small compact unit is just awesome. It sounds great and is a breeze to use. Really looking forward to getting one.
It is because he doesn't have a Turbo Tuner.
Waiting impatiently for an HX Stomp vs FM3 comparison )
Whereas with analog 2:50 and you're still trying to wrestle that 4x12 from the trunk of your stepdad's Civic.
that guitar has no vibrato, hardtail bridge
I don't post anymore my video in this forum, I was banned two times
Yeah, I think that's BS. Meanwhile, @jsad keeps pumping out videos on this forum regularly. Nothing wrong with him posting videos if he can, just wish the mods were consistent. You posted videos for all modelers, he posts videos for the Helix. So that's when I start thinking this really is a Line 6 Helix forum. @aleclee? @Scott Peterson?
PM me if you want to truly discuss things. I don't play strawman debates on the board.
