I can’t decide between the Helix Floor or a Quad Cortex. My #1 thing I’m looking for is ease of use and these 2 seem to be the most user friendly options out there. I obviously care about sound as well, but I’m sure they both sound great and that’s mostly subjective. Also, I plan to gig with whatever I choose, so it has to work well in a live setup. I know the opinion here might be biased, but wanted to get some other input from people who have had both units?
My main concern with the QC is the long wait time and the growing pains of a brand new unit. Also I dislike the lack of an expression pedal built in. The UI and built in wifi is a huge plus though, seems much easier to use than the Helix. One other note is that I couldn’t care less about capturing my own amps and pedals. I’ll most likely never use that feature.
My main concern with the Helix is the fact that it’s like 6 years old. I know Line 6 has mentioned they release new software, not hardware. Maybe this is a plus though as most of the kinks would be worked out by now? Still that’s an old piece of tech to pay $1800 for. Just doesn’t sit well with me. I could be wrong though?
Thanks for any advice!
