Amazing sound with some compromise.

Avgerinos, 29.03.2018
I'm writing this review after using the product for a good 8 months now.

Pros:
+Sound. The sounds are amazing. Really realistic.
+Ease of use. The iOS/Android app really makes this easy and comfortable. Leaning over to tweak sounds is a thing of the past.
+I/O. There is a plethora of outputs, while you can plugin a second expression pedal or any pedal/pedal chain you want via the fx send/return.
+Construction is sturdy and compact.

Cons:
-Some serious lag between changing patches. You have to adjust your playing when switching patches to minimize the gap. I didn't have this lag with a 10 year old BOSS product.
-The main/volume knob fell off last week. Plugged in back in, never fell again. Shouldn't go off in the first place.
-Some serious compromises in the effects chain. You can't add a second reverb. You can add up to three delays/mods (these being pitch shifts also). For example 2 delays and a mod. You can't move every delay/effect/reverb module in any place you'd probably like. There are some standard positions that each pedal can be placed.

Can I recommend this product?
Well, soundwise it's really great and it's really easy to program. Most presets are also totally usable. The app has its ups and downs sometimes, but nothing extraordinary.
The lag issue is really bugging me. I've kept the unit because it's really good at this price range but if I could spend more for a Helix, I'd go with it.

I recommend it to someone on a certain budget who does not do a lot of gigging.

Best for the price

TTomika, 01.04.2018
I needed something light with good sound for small gigs and that's it. It's portable, easy to carry and has more than enough output option for any stage use I need. The sound is great, surely not the same as the modelled amps but I cannot afford those and would be much more difficult to carry. The only real complain is the Android app. That's not too user friendly or over tested for sure. Sometimes hard to manage it to connect with device, after that it's usable. The tone sharing on Internet makes it easy to get a similar tone what you're looking for, you only have to do the fine tuning. Fortunately you don't have to use the app, all parameters can be adjusted from the unit itself. An analogue input and a separeted phones volume adjusment would be fine, but not absolutely necessary.
