    How are you getting along with the interface now?
    Your initial comment surprised me. I immediately fell in love with the ease of use. Not at all saying I'm right, it just fits me personally very well.

    I get along with it. But I still think that the Headrush outsmarts the Helix interface by far. It is a lot easier to make the Headrush do what you want. etc. The Helix interface is ok and as soon as you get used to it it makes sense, but the Headrush is just like: sit down, activate it, have fun. Scenes, playlisats, LED assignments, everything goes much easier. No need for an additional PC software.

    But the Helix IS great, I already love it, it just takes a lot more work and dedication to know your way around the device.

    I played the whole afternoon with the drives of the Helix and created parts of my coverband playlist. I never thought it would be that way, but I sue the Helix as an effects only board for my band setup now into my clean Bassbreaker 18/30 and it sounds extremely good. I am so happy with that sound now.
    For recording I programmed Presets with Amp/Cab sim/IRs.

    So I am using the best of both worlds now:)

    Cheers, CT

    The Helix stays. After testing it, it is now wrapped in gift paper and I'll be getting it for my 40th birthday on the 28th of december.
    So funny, I feel like a kid waiting for Xmas:)
    It is a gift from my parents anyways;)

    So 7 more days podfarm:)

    8 hours left till it is my birthday and I can unwrap my Helix. Time is ticking so damn slowly:)

    Never thought I'd be looking forward to turning 40 XD

    Today is my B-day. 53. I've been blessed to have lived the life of not being bundled for Christmas and B-day. I can only hope yours has been the same.
    Enjoy your day tomorrow.

    You're fine. I bought the Helix as a Christmas present to myself - on Oct 29 I think it was. Now that was a long wait :p

    But worth it, oh yes.

    And happy birthday for tomorrow. I still remember being incredulous at turning 40. But now I'm 52 and pretty much the same...

    Happy birthday! Some birthdays were bundled with Christmas, some were not, but all of them were good, so I am happy:)

    Enjoy your birthday too! :)

    Wow, this would have killed me I guess XD

    Yes, it was a great day:) My 5-year old daughter decided on the decoration and the gift paper, so everything was pink XD
