Following a lead from another forum, I just purchased S-Gear 2.7 @30% off! It's for a limited time and in my opinion is one of the best PC Based modelling SW packages going & waiting would've meant paying over $45 CAD more for the same thing after the sale. I've used the 2.5 Trial version and this basically adds 4 extra Cabs in the convolutor. I was getting hyped about buying a Helix LT because the Helix impresses me so much, but we have a major expense coming end Aug to visit my Mom halfway across Canada in Ontario for her 75th and that trip is likely to set us back >3K. Another factor is the dammed Kemper videos/demos out there. It's huge expense here ($2600 CAD) but that thing sounds the best of the three IMO providing you have good profiles to choose from (& there are ones out there), so what's making me wait longer besides $$ is deciding whether or not I need the added feature set of the Helix (where it shines) over the more accurate modelling ( OK "profiling") of the Kemper and can live with the manual operation and more limited feature set. Since I don't gig out many of the LT's advantages over the Kemper don't seem as significant in my case so I'm going to wait longer still to take the plunge. In the meantime S-Gear will give me the tonal options my AV15 can't and will hopefully keep me satisfied till that time. It may even get me so use to that method of modelling that the Helix moves back to the top of my List! I wish the CAD would come back to parity, the last 1-1\2 years have resulted in the equivalent of >30% decrease in buying power for foreign stuff.
