  1. I remember seeing this at NAMM. If you can afford this thing why not just pay an actual engineer? I can’t believe this thing works too well, and if anything gets out of control it’s going to be a pain to track down what’s wrong. Like a lot of Line 6 stuff it looks like a toy bought by people who don’t know better and don’t want to take the time to learn. Teach a man to fish…

  2. As a touring live sound engineer (both FOH & Monitor), I just can’t see how this is acceptable. I’m sorry I bet it sound like a steaming pile of dog dung. But then again line6 has never been known for their quality, just their affordable price tags., this is just another way to steal money from the consumer musician that buys stupid amounts crap they don’t need, and have no understanding of because some other uneducated ass told them to…

  4. Teach a man to fish, and you will lose a great business opportunity.

    I prefer the old proverb, but these days its all about screwing up our fellow man.
