Two years into playing guitar using a Boss GT-100, a Boss GT-001 then Amplitube and then mostly BIAS FX on the iPad and iPhone (so I can gig with it). Decided I wanted to see what all the physical fuss was about. Spent the whole damn weekend building cables, making mistakes in pedal placement, taking it apart, trying again. I did test everything out first. In the end, I still don't have a sound I like nearly as much as my digital presets living in the brains of my iOS devices. When you think of it, even the most advanced rig such as the Helix, don't even have half the processing power of the A12x chip in my 8 Plus. I don't think I'll be continuing on the pedalboard path but I am going to use this rig for band practice. I am having fun with the Wah pedal though and the Big Muff Pi is glorious. If I ever do want to really get serious about a physical board, I'm going to use something like the Helix or Headrush products. But, why not just keep gigging and playing with the BIAS FX? I think I spent $1000.00 putting everything together. Feeling disappointed.
