Outstanding pedalboard.

Matias M., 09.11.2017
At Firmware 1.2.1 there are just a few things they need to address:

1) More modules, the Helix series are way ahead in this department.

2) A few quirks in the firmware because is fairly new and needs to mature. But for the most part not a show stopper. No significant bugs. My main gripe right now is not being able to store IRs in folders (can get real messy with lots of them)

Overall the unit cannot be more solid in terms of hardware. That thing is massive and well built.

The footswitches are clickless and a pleasure to work with.

The included models so far are outstanding. The amps and cabs are superb and the set of included FX are gonna have you covered for the most part.

Extensive I/O, certainly all you need.

The more I dig into the unit and the system the more I love it.

The handsfree nature of it is very effective. Once your presets are fully programmed you can navigate from macro to micro, from setlists to each individual parameter without having to lean down and tweak something with your fingers.

The extra knobs and touchscreen have plenty of space around so I also use my feet sometimes to tweak something or use the touchscreen :D

The knobs layout is even friendly in this regard. I would say this feature alone is a big deal, it feels so much better when you can tweak your patch while still being able to play. The big knob allows you to save using your foot too.

The sound is PRISTINE!, no digital whine, no aliasing. The best you can get for a studio recording environment.

It has plenty of horsepower, carefully reading reviews and comparing to the Helix series I would say it has about the same, potentially more if they improve the routing and allow for more modules if the user decides not to use the spill over feature. (is yet to be seen)

I can load two double amps and two double cabs and still have some power for FX. Despite what you heard, about the same as in a Helix. In reality one amp and 3 cabinets is enough and you still have more power to populate all the rest of the slots with FXs.

it has 1.9 GB of internal storage. After loading up the HR with tons of IRs they amounted for a total of only 100MB so there is plenty of space inside. EDIT: Now rocking 3800 IRs..and still I have plenty of space, this thing is a powerhouse.

Handling Rigs and Setlists (backing up, installing) is really easy, you just need to enable USB transfer and it shows up just like a USB drive in your PC (windows here)

Making setlists is pretty easy and is a great way to manage your content to quickly find it in your unit. Better than other pedalboards I've worked with were you have fixed slots. Suddenly having a ton of presets doesn't feel overwhelming to browse around.

No problems with the drivers whatsoever, the USB interface ges up to 192Khz and works flawlessly. You can even use the unit to reamp stuff from within your DAW.

I give it 5/5 at it's current state. It will just get better and better from here on.

Jury is still out

Gilm, 27.01.2018
Have had the headrush for about a month now and am fairly pleased with the unit. My previous units was a Boss GT-100 so this is definitely an upgrade. Just a couple of notes:
1. While the sound is excellent, I use the 4 cable method since I am a firm believer of not coloring my pre-amp. Am using a Roland Blues Cube Artist and it sounds great all by itself but I play in a cover band so I need to be versatile and this unit covers that.
2. The instructions are pretty sparse but there are a multitude of demos on YouTube that are very helpful trying to figure out the unit. I have written to headrush a couple of times and their response took forever. Searching on the net is your best bet.
3. The pre-programmed effects are pretty horrible but thats pretty much the same on all these types of units. Do your own setup. I did and I?ve got it tweaked fairly well now.
4. The touch screen makes the unit react like an iPad. Absolutely amazing and extremely intuitive! After having the GT-100 for 3 years this was a godsend. After 3 years I was still trying to figure that think out. No problems here though. Touch, execute, drop and drag. Finished. The learning curve is pretty steep.
5. The provided effects are good and offer a endless variety of parameters but its not clear if you have selected a Tube Screamer or some other distortion unit. A lot of trial and error is required here but thats also part of the fun. You?ll need a lot of experimentation here.
