The TUNER! I didn't even think to check to see if that improved. I hope you aren't kidding. Don't get me wrong. I found I could work the tuner but it sure could use some improvements.

I have a gig on Sunday so have to sit on my hands and read about all the good stuff. Somebody needs to post some vids of the new delays. 🎸

Not sure about sound, but tuner is better for sure!

It does seem that the tuner is less jumpy. Need to play with it some more to be sure...

Not sure about them sounding better; I've had that impression before with a previous firmware update. If I remember correctly, there was a guy that did a re-amping with the new firmware to compare it to the old and found no difference. So from then on, I reackon that my ears are getting more and more used to modeling ...

 

(Who would have thought that for a tube amp aficionado with a great love for AnalogMan fuzz boxes [which I still am])

DI did state that they do constantly improve the modeling engine, but just don't wax poetically about it.

 

So a sound improvement could have happened, or not. It was tested for one FW update once before, (with no change) but not all of them...

I thought I noticed an improvement in the sound even before I read this post.  Who knows though, could just be the day.  LOL

At our gig last night on March 31st with 2.20 on my Helix the tuner worked very well and the sound was improved to my ears.  Of course today is April 1st so ... :o

I played with it briefly as well, and it seems to be better based on the short time on was on it. I will dive in a little more on it this week.
