HX Stomp FAQ in Helix Posted October 17, 2018 2 hours ago, SteveFrance said: This is exactly what i'm thinking. And yes, i think it's a bad strategy ! Of course, it's a good product that will attract new customers but that's just another (light) modeler among so many others......But nothing tell that those customers will stay with L6. The Variax Owners are more linked to the brand and really believe in the modeling world. This new stomp box don't prevent them/us to go elsewhere. The two last devices don't provide a VDI port. The HX FX corresponds to a stomp box so it's not incoherent to be absent What does it mean ? Variax is surrendered ? We have enough money to throw that we just have to buy the more expensive device or the old ones ? I'm really disapointed, i feel like i was wrong to trust in their products, there's no cheaper new solutions that works as that i have !!!!! VDI would have been nice but it would have blown up the size of the unit. I can still use my JTV-69 with the HX Stomp via the 1/4" cable. True I have to manually switch models but it's not a big deal for me. It wouldn't surprise me to see Line 6 come out with some sort of separate Variax interface that could integrate with the HX Stomp; They are reserving a couple of the USB paths for something. Also, I keep expecting to see a new Variax based on the Revstar guitars.
