Still I wonder... I've been working as a professional producer and guitarist for 30 years, and have used line 6 ever since the early days. I like the sound they produce, but... The line 6 guys are so occupied making 'new stuff', they seem blind to things that really matters. One thing that I simply don't understand, is all this talk about control. I mean, I'm one of the biggest control freaks in town, but what is the point of just "having" control options, when one dos'nt think about "where" to have them. With this in mind, I hope line 6 some day sees the potential in using a great invention called the 'IPad'. With this amazing touch screen controller, one could easily Imagine the bennefits of having all your pedals at your finger tips, just beside you or wherever you like. Just like having your pedalboard right there when you need it. I think most of us now know how uncool, enoing or straight up unprofefessional it is to turn your back on the audiens(if racked) to tweek and tweek, or kneeling down over the floorboard...over and over. It's not that difficult any more, and with just a teeny weeny out of the box mindset, one could easily look futher beoynd. We are in the 21 century.
Since we have time to talk about such things, I thought I'd start a thread on recording with Helix and the iPad. What are the options? Assume a couple of scenarios: Using Helix for amps/effects and sending wet signal to iPad with recording app Using Helix for dry signal sent to amp/effect app in iPad, then recorded on the iPad Assume a variety of existing connections, let's go with these options: Apogee Jam http://www.apogeedigital.com/products/jam (Or Sonic Port) http://line6.com/interfaces/#sonicport Apple camera connector http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MD821AM/A/lightning-to-usb-camera-adapter Focusrite iTrack Dock http://us.focusrite.com/ios-audio-interfaces/itrack-dock# What would be the best Helix outputs/cables for each of these digital interfaces with the iPad? What are the possibilities? Feel free to also offer up your own scenarios currently with HD Pods as part of this. Midi is optional, I'm not sure I know what to do with it. Thanks!
