Triryche, thanks for reply. Since I am not looking for an additoonal investment into an iOS device, I better spend money for some quality amp/effect that meets my compatibility needs with common Windows PC (I own a Precision M4400 which has been serving me well so far). Sad news though: I was ready to go into this, it was exactly that what I was looking for, but compatibility is something Line6 should have considered. Might be there is some backround story with Apple there (in return for application, you have to stay with apple), but in that case, its a huge drawback. Considering how Microsoft does with oncoming Office 2016 and expanding compatibility for iOS and Android, Line6 missed the bus here.
Anyway, thanks for quick and honest answer - and I go to pickup Yamaha THR10. Have a great Xmas and happy new year to all rockers! :-)
