    I've never even tried one, but it looks to me like the Helix, and both seem more complicated than I really need. I've had a Pod HD400 for around 7-8 years, it suits my needs just fine, is built solid, and the switching layout is about perfect for me - 4 presets/switches per bank. Put too many switches at my feet, and I can pretty much guarantee I'll hit the wrong one at some point during a gig.

    Thanks for the reply's. :)

    I'm still in the honeymoon stage with this unit, but so-far I'm liking it. :cool:

    For the cover band that I'm in, it's gonna be really nice to have rigs/presets for specific songs.

    With my old school analog pedal board, sometimes I had to do quite the tapdance for certain songs.
    With this unit, if I set it up right,
    those songs will be a one button stomp to get everything I need for the song.

    Very easy to edit, move, change things around, setlists etc...

    I'm impressed with the user interface, and as far as CPU horsepower,
    well I don't think it's gonna be a problem.

    Quad core and all that...:D

    I must say I hadn't really considered the Headrush as I was aiming at a Helix LT but I like the ease of use and some sounds are great with the right IRs.
    Fantoni and Andertons lads seem to be positive too. Marco gets a useful acoustic sound too which is good.
    Definitely on my radar now thanks for the heads up.

    The more I use this, the more I like it. :)

    It's sooooo easy to use.
    Some things I had to crack the manual for but really, it's just too easy. :cool:

    One thing I'm very glad of... NO deep menu diving.
    That has always scared me away from Digital stuff.

    Waaaay back when.... I bought a Line 6 Axsys 2X12... remember those?
    It sounded "ok" but too fiddly to setup sounds.
    Sold it after 6 months and bought a HotRod Deluxe. (still have it)

    Also had a Boss ME-50 guitar processor.
    Too much menu diving and not really good sounds.

    Those 2 put me off Digital guitar anything for a looong time.

    The Headrush is a keeper for now.

    We'll see how we get along 6 months from now. ;)

    Cheers!

    The more I use it, the more I love it.

    I am not a manual reader. And, you need it very little with the HeadRush.
