admin.Did you buy one to test out?  curious. Why does in music buy old tech companies and put them in 2023 gear? Can they not do in house modeling etc?


No I'm keeping my existing tools.

This one just seems incremental - and to be honest , playing live - it's far easier to land on great tone at any volume with most of today's tools from past 15 years  - in 2023, I haven't played this many live gigs since 1979 - for live gigs  I'm probably the most minimal guitarist on this forum, reliability and multiple levels of fall back when failure occurs mid show is more important to me.

Even "solo gigs" - I'd use the $$$ resources instead to polish my live act , hire a singer - work as a duo , instead of buying this years DSP Amp/FX Modeler ;)

And instead of lusting after the next $1300 MFX box, its better time spent brushing up your skill set


Thank you for the reply. I cant believe the hype this thing is getting online from guys who got units free. And some guys on other forums are saying its amazing. I had the mx5 and it paled in comparison to fractal and helix tones and effects. So hard for me to imagine this prime unit will be that much better. They jumped on the cloning amp train pretty fast and released it in the wild pretty quickly which is a smart move but are vague on the diff in effects and tones to the "old" hr units.
Also when i see autotune my stomach turns as this has destroyed popular music. LOL.
They tossed alot in the prime for sure but hard to think that its "too much" stuff in one box and cant really be tops in all those things added: jack of all trades-master of none comes to mind

It's become the standard procedure with each new product release to generate excitement - for those who are programmed to believe This will be "THE FINAL TOOL" to succeed in music.

as well as adding capture to modelers it seems..no interest to me


The Vocal tools and pedal captures certainly can reduce some gear. Agree with the large amount of gigs as well as using exactly what you mentioned for great tones. I'm really happy with the old stero power amps to run through to make 'em' shine.


I think all the units implement Snapshots exactly as a response for patch changes delays.
