    If I recall when Helix Native is released there'll be a free trial period (15 days). I'll be trying it to audition the Helix LT modelling.

    For some reason, I'm not excited about Native. I'll buy it when it comes out. But I don't feel like it's something I really need. Maybe I'll change my mind after I get it. I'm just glad that it shows Line 6 is looking to consolidate and upgrade several products together to make a stronger brand. This is a good thing for us.

    The main reason why I am looking forward to it is because I leave my Helix in the Band rehersal room most of the time and then I can do new setups for new songs etc at home on the PC and then just transfer them to my Helix.

    From Product Manager DI on the L6 forum, posted today...

    "We're very close. As of yesterday afternoon, all Helix Native 1.0 bugs have been squashed. The QA team is currently performing hardcore regression testing and if they don't find anything egregious, we may have a release candidate very soon."

    I'm super excited. I'll be able to test patches against IR combos in ProTools without having to save and upload them to the helix. Also re-amping just became trivial. It's pretty easy now but will be stupid easy with native.

    Same as Donal, but because mine's upstairs. :rofl:

    I think it'll be nice to sit in my recliner drinking coffee in the morning tweaking presets.

    I got an email from L6 yesterday. The Subject line was -- "INTRODUCING HELIX NATIVE!". "Finally, it's finished and released!" I thought to myself.

    I was at work, but was excited to drive home, download HN, and get started. When I got home I read the whole email... it said "COMING SOON" at the bottom.:rofl:

    According to what DI said yesterday (or was it Thursday), it will most likely be coming out Tuesday (if no significant problems are discovered before then).

    It's here! I've been playing with it for about 20 minutes. I took about 5 minutes to get it up and running, 5 minutes to load my bundle and IRs, but another 10 to figure out my latency issue. The layout is very nice, and it sounds the same as my Helix.
