I understand you, i use the Joyo American Sound and a Mooer DI with cab simulation for playing straight into P.A.It makes perfect sense from a product line standpoint.
It's not my cup of tea but neither are any of the Helix products.
I don't really see much difference between the Helix, Boss etc tones produced in the demos which all seem the same.
I'm sitting out on modeling until it improves and is somewhat more streamlined. I would love one that was just amps, cabs and reverb similar to the Iridium.
This is true, i have the same impression.Seems a bit late to the market, and Boss' amp modeling doesn't seem to have the moj
I totally understand, i do the same more or less, nobody needs 150 amp. simultions.I'm a simple man. Joyo American Sound user,
Yes, in this other video they compare it with the Helix Stomp, it looks like it's more powerful, no DSP problems...
You need to spend a bit of time with these machines but once you've got it thay are great, i use effects a lot with some of the projects that i'm in, i could never live without presets so i need multieffects along with some pedals (always less to be honest).i think its great.
a lot of people is going modelling, and this is another option. Its kind of a Catch-22 now I think, Helix seems to be the best option because Helix seems to be what people use. At least now, if they do venture out of the Helix, they have another Modelling box in the same small footprint.
it’s cheaper than getting all 500-series pedals and more powerful. I already have the DD-500 and the RV-500, and I can clearly understand where Boss is going with their products.
a lot of people are also a bit traditional, and only want one type of sound and ease of use without menu diving. I guess this isnt for them, i used to be in that camp until I got my 500-series pedals and found that I can muster even more great delays and verbs using the editor and creating patches and all on the computer. Time consuming? Yeah, a bit, but I never had to sit down for hours, like people seem to be so scared about, maybe 10-15mins max to edit/create 2-3 delay or verb preset that I can use.
the thing is, if you want one type of tone, this can do it, if you want plenty of amps to use, this can do it. We all sit down and tweak our tube amps and pedals’ knobs and settings anyway, so really, I dont understand the hate/fear for these powerful products.

Also today you can use most of the multieffects in pedal mode or preset mod so you have both options and i love this thing.
What i don't feel the need to have is many amps. and cabs. simultions since i've always used one clean amp for all my life, but i can understand that it can be a plus for selling them better.
It looks like this Boss doesn't have as much simulations as the Line 6 but to me it can only be a good thing.
Yes, this thing is great, also a friend of mine that has the Helix Stomp tells me that when in preset mode there is an annoying latency in changing bank, maybe is because there are too many things inside and the processor is not as powerful, i don't know.......i guess the feature attraction is the powerful processor. 24 blocks (effects), dual amps, and if they put the in-depth capabilities of the 500-series pedals in this thing, then this could be their game changer.
