I suppose this is best suited for a juvenile fantasy thread type deal - for some reason I just don't believe Line6 would generalize the new PodHDs as a midi controller. But damn. The idea of using one of them as a controller/back-up for Axe-FX or 11R is obviously awesome (not to mention a new market position to devour). The sweet price point the new PodHDs are boasting could kill the MFC-101 if that functionality was incorporated. I've decided I LIKE the way GAS feels. Life is empty without a bad case of GAS imo.
