    Sort of a silly, non-informative comment, but thought I'd say it anyway. Between keeping grand kids and going on a trip, I didn't get to play for six days. Been a while since that's happened. Anyway, last night I finally got to fire up the rig for a while. The Helix made me smile. Man, this thing sounds good. Hit one button and go. No fumbling, searching or tweaking. Power on and I'm instantly hearing exactly what I wanted to hear. I really like this thing.

    Awesome!!! I, too, find constant enjoyment and inspiration with the Helix. By far the BEST gear purchase I made since buying my first Rivera in 1990.

    I can fully understand the feeling, I am always looking forward to my band practices on Thursdays, The first thing I do when I walk into the room is switch on the Helix.

    Since I set it up the first day have only modified 1 preset since, and the sound inspires even more to play. It may sound stupid but I think I got better, maybe because I am not chasing sounds but enjoying the ones I have setup :D

    Well, I concur. But the title of your thread made me think there was a new update, and I started to get excited. Not nice to tease an old guy!;)

    Hi, a quick offtopic question:)

    Which box do you use with the Helix in Band practice?:)

    Cheers, CT

    I want a Helix so bad, only 5 months to go:)
