New amp and fx models?

Recommended Posts

This may sound like a silly quiestion to the die hard Line 6'ers, but will any of the amp models or fx ever be updated in the Amplifi FX100? Or are they permanently implanted on a chip. Just wonder if I need to start thinking about upgrading to the Firehawk since it has the HD line of fx.

They could in theory release new amps or effects but the fx100 is not powerful enough to run hd amps

That's good to know. I hate getting my hopes up. I have fell in love with the FX100 but I am saving up for the Firehawk. It has far more and far better options. The only thing I don't get is why they left the looper off. Sounds like a no brained.

just my opinion, but for the same money you can get the HD500X with far more features and capabilities...

That is very true but the ability to tweak and arrange from a wireless android device is something I've been waiting for for quite some time. I'm having a blast and I'm not constantly on my knees tweaking the knobs. And I'm getting really proficient at creating tones on the fly. And I love the tone matching feature. I would like more fx models though even if they cost a little something. Sorry I just realized how many times I said "and".

With my Kindle Fire HDX 9.7" the bluetooth has been rock solid. Although I have not tested the distance it has not broke connection once. There is absolutely no lag when changing presets. I does take a second for the app to catch up but it has no affect on the pedal. My enthusiasm was capped off when I walked off and left my Kindle upstairs. I simply connected with my android phone and away I went. By the way you do not need the app to run the pedal, only to edit the presets or to stream music. That being said any mp3 player with bluetooth should be able to connect and stream music. Sorry. I'll end my gleaming endorsement here.

I agree. Do you play your bass through the FX100? If so how does it sound?
