  1. It would be great if Line6 could set up a function that allows a subscribers, for any single product he wants, to receive an alert as soon was a new software update is released. We could thus avoid checking each and every day on the site, to know if a new software update is on.
  2. I didn't realize my english was so bad ;( I was not able to explain my thought. Let me try and explain once more what I was complaining for. Let's assume you buy a Helix Floor because you want to take a tour in the "digital world". Let's say you pay 1.400 $ for it. After some months you realize that's not for you and you try and sell your Helix. 1.100 $ be a reasonable price for a mint condition Helix floor. This could be the case before Helix Native showed up. In the Helix Native era, should you decide to sell the same stuff (possibly having also paid 99 $ for Native) the buyer will possibly tell you he'd like to have Native too. Your Helix will not be worth more than 800/900 $. Maybe I'm wrong but I guess the buyer is wright. Line 6 do have to take into consideration "used" value of their equipment: it affects people attitude to by expensive products.
  3. At the end of the day Native is lowering Helix cureent owners value. I'm sure that was not Lime6 goal but it is a problem that has to be fixed. A poosible solution could be allowing gifting with Native.
  4. I bought Helix Floor one year ago and I bought Native as soon as it was released (99 $). I' m now selling Helix and I will not use Native any more. I should be allowed to sell Helix Floor together with Native licence (which I paid for). If this will not be the case, Line6 Native price policy will penalize current Helix owners. In fact the value of pre-owned Helix Floor should drop roughly 300 usd just because they are not eligible for Helix native discount. If you then buy Native, like I did, you loose 99 $ more. IMMO there's something wrong. Native was intended to add value to Helix not to reduce it...

    Coming soon...

    Any idea when soon will be?
  7. I've been told 2017 spring's end seems to have a huge latency... maybe a couple of months...
  8. Travelling with my guitar+mac, coming home with new sounds and plug them into my helix it's not just a nice to have. That's a way to really boost Helix power. I'm leaving there again tomorrow and I'll miss Native!

    Firmware Update

    The link just worked for a couple of minutes. Then they realized they forgot to resad last 1327 ideascale topics and they restarted the development proced. But for sure we'll get a nice gift for Chistmas...2019 ;)))
  10. Hi there, no way downloading the patch. Is there someone so kind to send it to me by email? matteozucchi88@gmail.com thanks
  11. Ops! Something was missing in my post... I bought helix for what it is, and I'm happy for what it does now. Do you think I will still be happy in two months time having helix doing what it does today?
  12. Besides, everyone should buy a product based on what it does today, not what they think it might do in the future.
  13. I understand the reason why you cannot disclosure plans and timing. On the other side, you can easily measure customers disappointment for this "blind journey" on helix forum. I'm not saying they're always right but this could cause disaffection if not managed. What about declaring you'll be issuing a new release every second moth no matter the level of upgrade you'll be able to introduce? You'll not infringe any trade law nor give any information to your competitors. Customers will try and get their best on what they already have while waiting till the next release to possibly have more. Customers will then stop looking every second hour on your site to see if a new release came out. Anyway Helix is a really nice product: congratulations on the job you've done.
  14. You're wright. I'm not using "unacceptable" any more. My point is that I love line6 products. I don't even remember when I bought the first one. I have both Helix and AX8. I believe Helix could become a much better product than AX8, but now that's not the case. Line6 has huge resources as compared to Fractal. It doesn't make sense IMO not to win the game when you have better chance to do it. I'm not willing to blame anybody
  15. There's still such a gap in amps and effects as compared to AX8 - which by the way has been delivered in huge quantities recently - that IMO Line6 should better deliver new stuffs quickly. Helix is a good product but waiting more than one month just to have bugs fixed it's unacceptable.
  16. Next week I'll have my ax8
