  1. two things. 1. every day you wait to get the tool that will help you make music better and have more fun doing it is a day wasted. 2. There is not a Helix 2 coming any time super-soon.
  2. Well, here's my educated guess. I am going to guess that Helix (and anything that follows it in that product class) will continue to cater to professional-level musicians who will have nothing to do with "built-in wireless" and that products on the POD Go end of the spectrum will continue to offer an entry level (very limited and very "amateur") wireless built-in.
  3. Tons of professionals use wireless, in fact, every touring act that I've seen for decades. And tons of pros use the Helix Floor, too.
  4. You misunderstand. Pro-level equipment will never have a built-in wireless for instance, because pros would avoid that product to use the one that will let them use the wireless of THEIR choice, rather than the one chosen for them. There is NOTHING wrong with being amateur, but there is a completely different ideal feature set for a POD Go than for Helix. Many of the other features you list have nothing to do with the sound or capability (such as touch-screen, tested and rejected because it was... wait for it... not preferred by the pro musician which Helix targets). You inferred I was insulting you personally. I was not. I did not levy any personal attacks against you, as you did towards me, btw. Please keep it classy here.
  5. Sorry, most of these very "amateur" features will never be in Helix, I'll bet.
  6. I am rather certain that those who actually would have to do the work to create this VST version you speak of would tell you that you are mistaken about the complexity and cost of such a venture.
  7. It's like comparing apples and oranges, only really, you are comparing apples and baseball. The economies of scale.. and the purpose... are totally different. Most people bought a smartphone so that they COULD use it to do non-phone things. And when they come up with a feature like "maps" they do it to sell more products because LOTS of people want it. They make those things to sell more phones to more customers, and the market segment is huge, the entire world. If there are 100,000 people who want a feature on a smartphone it makes sense to make that, even though that's less than 1% of the 100,000,000 people who buy cell phones. That's why those apps exist. And they end up not being money losers, because 100,000 is a lot of people, even if it's <1% of users. There are not nearly as many people who want this feature on their Helix, which compared to cell phones is a minuscule market, as evidenced by the ONE vote that this feature has received.
  8. It would be super cool. It will cost a lot of money and only 12 people in the world are going to pay money for it. So... Probably should find those 12 people and split the cost... oh... that means it won't be cheap.
  9. Talking about ACOUSTIC guitar IR, though... And... nope... the best IR you can make is one you make yourself if you know EXACTLY what you are doing. (as you, admittedly, do say) I know how to make my own, and I made my own IR of my acoustic guitar, and I STILL USE the 3 Sigma offerings instead, because they sound miles better, and probably nobody reading this is going to be able to make them as well as 3 Sigma do.
  10. And doesn't the Wing connect via Ethernet to a WiFi network, not bluetooth, for wireless control?
  11. If it is so common, perhaps you could list all these pro devices... (and Behringer isn't exactly high-end)
  12. You mean the way that the latest Fractal product came with a Bluetooth feature that worked with a smartphone to edi-- Uh... never mind... oh yeah, it didn't... Honestly, editing from a phone is an amateur feature more than a pro feature, and Helix is pro gear.
  13. Poly pitch is the only block that does this, and it is on purpose, and it's switchable, I think, in the FX block. Also, try using MOMENTARY for Poly pitch, and you can step on the switch to ramp up (or down) and then release to ramp back. It is SO FREAKING COOL!
  14. It is, in fact, technically not possible. Not the way the unit is made to work. Only way to switch between two different blocks is to have both loaded in the preset. That's just the way it works.
  15. It is not just that imho. It is the way that a guitar speaker moves air vs. the way that an FRFR does. The delay has nothing to do with it if your FRFR and your "real amp" are the same distance from your ears.
