  1. I have mixed feelings about that site. They say they use it as their guidepost, but if you set filter by "in progress" to see what they're ACTUALLY working on, there are a lot of items with the LOWEST amount of votes that are actually in progress. If an idea's been submitted it's "in review" within a couple of weeks, and that's where most of the stuff seems to sit. Don't get me wrong, I can see the utility in more than a few of those in-progress items, but it seems to me that if you look what's in-review vs in-progress they work on whatever they feel like, or maybe whatever is easy to knock out quick and dirty not what the masses are clamouring for.
  2. Don't feel; too bad bud, I've had retailers tell me I was going to get my Helix rack/control combo the middle of November back in October, and I've been hearing "it'll be here 'soon'" every couple of weeks since. However, I do feel your frustration, and "soon" better be SOON gosh darn it! :P​
  3. Talking to my peeps and they told me that they haven't heard any comunications, official or otherwise, that would lead them to believe that the current round won't be where it's supposed to be middle-to-third-week of December. So I'm going with my last guess that the backorders are so extenstive that the February date is when the NEXT next order will be delivered on.
  4. Yeah, I guess they seriously underestimated the appeal of the unit as evidenced by the shortages and shipping issues right now.
  5. I want to give them the benifit of the doubt, but the radio silence on the drop-date just feeds the parnoid frenzy and speculation that is the interwebs.
  6. Haven't had a chance to talk to my peeps yet, but my guess now is that date is a reflection of pre-order fulfillment; that's when they think they'll have the NEXT next shippment of Helix racks that aren't already spoken for. At least that's what I hope that would mean.
  7. thankfully Long&McQuade have updated their prices to reflect the change, but mid-february is a real kick in the 'nads! Ugh! I'll have to get in touch and find out if they've been told it's been pushed back that far...
  8. this is pretty much the configuration I'll be running this with too! Only it'll be a 2:100 power amp, and minus that single space silver thing in the middle. :D
  9. totally. DI said not too long ago, they were working some bugs out, then full speed ahead on more content for the unit.
  10. Now when do they hit the distribution chain, that's what I'd like to know! :D
  11. rockin'! Tell me they're in the distribution pipeline, please!
  12. They've got supply issues, but that launched roughly around when they said they would. I'm hoping the Rack/Control is the same, but if it's not showing up for another month or two, it'd be nice to get someting official on that.
  13. Over on TGP forum, DI said there was some "potentially big news" to drop on it, and that forum moves too fast to keep up with these days. Did this news ever get elaborated on? It was slated to ship end of November / Begginning of December; well, we've arrived at that time, so is it going to drop now? What's the dillio my friends?
  14. It's awesome how you're all up in these threads! Good to know you've got your ear to the ground. You guys have A BUNCH of great amps that you're sitting on from the good ol' days, and imho if those gems you modeled back in the X3 period made it into the Helix you'd be hard pressed to find a tone you didn't like or couldn't emulate. I can only imagine how great these amps will sound in the HX engine! :D
  15. Nice to see the love for these amp suggestions on Ideascale. I'm a little suprised the JCMs aren't getting more love, but it's obvious that people feel the same way that I do about the MkIV, VH4/Herbert, and XTC. AMAZING amps that do something special/unique, even compared to what's going to be on offer already, that they have and can/should bring back into the modeling fold. No time like the present with all that new horsepower under the hood!
