    Finally a replacement for pod farm, or so it seems.

    http://line6.com/helix/helixnative.html

    Not a whole bunch of info yet, but looks promising.

    It's already in the helix thread.

    Okay? So because you mentioned some months back in the middle of a thread, it now can't ever have it's own thread dedicated to the topic?

    It is a separate product altogether from the Helix line and pretains more to studio related use. On top of that most anyone who doesn't own a Helix nor is considering buying one would not have seen the mention of Native. So I think this thread might be helpful for others like myself who were unaware of it for one reason or another :2c:

    It's literally the exact same product. It's just a VST instead of hardware. All settings/amps/effects are identical to the 3 hardware versions.

    It doesn't really make sense to have a separate thread to split discussions on the same system. No need to get defensive.

    This thing has been hyped for over a year now. But the release is still TBD. IMO this will just be another BIAS or AmpliTube, however, I shall reserve my judgments until its released.

    I disagree. In my mind, I consider this a completely separate product -- regardless of the underlying system being the "same". I have never considered purchasing the Helix hardware but could get behind the VST.

    I don't see why we shouldn't have a dedicated thread to discuss the VST? :scratch:

    To Mikes point, I wouldn't have heard about this since I have never read through the (hardware) Helix thread because I don't own the Helix. Now I have something to keep my eye on.

    Arguments aside, it's gonna be cool to actually test out the Helix sounds in a DAW format. I'm sure with a low latency interface like an Apollo Twin, it'll be a cheaper and more efficient solution for just studio dudes.

    This. I don't see what the big deal is about informing everyone in a new thread.

    Anyway, the only way I'd entertain this is if the discount to existing pod farm owners is worth while. I definitely wouldn't drop $400 for a plugin but that's just me.

    Yeah, I'm really hoping there's a demo version available.

    The latest update that I could find:

    A Line 6 staff member posted this on their forum on August 10th, 2017:
    Reference: http://line6.com/support/topic/25217-helix-native/?p=224053

    Also, here is the manual (System Requirements are on page 3):

    Reading the manual has actually got me excited about this. I'm definitely going to demo this if they give us the option.

    It would've been nice to get into the beta test group but I'm looking forward to a demo regardless!

    15 day demo seems like more than enough to make a decision, I'll have to pop that when I know I'll have a lot of guitar playing time.

    Was leaning towards an LT but this may be enough for me.

    That's twice I've tried to download the demo and their damn site won't even load! Obviously it was popular then.
