I am a guitar player in a cover band and play gigs around town. I am thoroughly impressed with the sounds you can get out of this box. I am a plug and play kind of guy. What I want to know is how to set up helix as a stomp box. What I see about this unit is that it can get sounds but in getting those sounds it is overly complicated and takes time like their HD-500. If you are on a gig you dont have time to tweak all of the knobs and go into deep dive. I would like to generate some discussion on this because I am still on the fence about Helix.
