Some thoughts that I never run across on here. I'm thinking to submit to Idea Scale but wonder if anybody even cares about this stuff. It all seems great to me, but I am only one. Any feedback?
A touch screen interface might be sweet. Ditch most knobs other than 2 channel levels, and a master level output knob. Incorporate the parameter and control philosophy currently found in the Amplifi iOS remote control directly into the unit
2. Amp & Cab Blocks
Separate them. Give the cabs their own block, and incorporate a super transparent, post mic, 4 band parametric EQ with parameters in Hz and dB.
3. Thru Patching (between Amp and Cab blocks)
A - Allow the amp block to patch out to power amp & live cab, while still feeding the cab sim for a line out to FOH / recording input.
B - Allow a real life tube amp to be patched into the cab block with load correction to play "real" amps through the cab sims.
4. Metering Block
A block that can be placed into any point of the chain to monitor in / out between blocks. Not to stay live in the chain, just for technical monitoring / parameter adjustment.
Obviously, as many have discussed; more amp models (bass especially), higher fidelity / better dynamics in all of the models, and an IR loader should be standard.
I own a HD Pro, have used it for tons and tons of gigs as both a guitar and bass player. As well I have tracked heaps of records with it. I will probably never go back to the traditional amp system. Through using this unit It has shown amazing promise, but it for sure needs to evolve.
That's all for now
