    Nothing new, but thanks.
    Are there other forums you'd recommend ?

    Another feature request : disable Tap Tempo for Rhythm, because you can't use tap for delay while playing Rhythm.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I mean, I can't think about all of that in the middle of a song when I need to quickly change from a clean to gain sound or a solo boost. Maybe I'm just old (school).

    One switch to press to activate several blocks. Too complicated ?

    Thanks. I really like Ge 200, I hope there will be nice improvements.

    My sounds and order they are used is rarely set in stone. I use a GT-100 that mostly stays in manual mode and I can choose between clean and dirty amps, then have effects that I can turn on or off with one press. And yes, I know the amp models in the GT leave a lot to be desired, so seriously considering a Helix if I can justify the price. Based on the sounds from some of the Mooer preamp pedals, I would definitely be interested if it had more footswitches and/or a way to hook up a controller.

    Granted, most of my playing now days is in churches, so I can go back and forth from a funky sound to a crunchy rhythm sound, to a solo sound, add delay, chorus, whatever, all in one song, and the next one will be different... Or it could be me and that I can't wrap my head around a preset mindset, just can't figure out how to deal with, okay, this sound is 3 presets up, that one is one down, then 2 down again for where I started.

    I see what you mean. I think it's not a big deal, you can save presets with the software, save them in right order for a live show, even without the software . The display is really good.
    Of course more switches are more confortable. I'd like midi control too. I'm still thinking about Helix LT, but it's too big and heavy for me, as I have other gear to bring, on stage or in my bed !
    Something in between may come one day. :)

    You play funky things in churches ?
    Not common in France ! :-D

    LOL, not down and dirty, rollin' in the mud funk, but funky sounds. It also can change or something can get added at the last minute, so a pre-programmed set list is pretty tough, that's why I use my GT in manual mode 99% of the time. Just would love to find something that works the same way, just sounds better, so, may be looking into a Helix LT, Headrush, or _______ after I get my taxes sorted out (I'm self employed).

    Like a stripped down version of this (we don't have an orchestra and choir onstage) -


    It's fun to do Lincoln Brewster tunes too -

    and here is the designed pcb ready to be manufactured.

    12AU7 gainstage with a DC coupled cathodyne phase inverter into an 6N6P/ECC99/E182CC twin triode that will deliver 3.5 watts at maximum volume. volume control is no visable as it's an off board component. It will have a -3 and -6 db switch and has a presence control. everything will fit in a 220mm, 150mm, 44mm housing (L, W, H). With no attenuation and volume at 100% with a line level input signal the phase inverter will be slightly off balance, allowing some even harmonics with roughly 10% power tube distortion. At least according to my calculations :)

    I updated GE 200 with 1.2 Os.
    The AMP Tube settings aren't wonderful and I think Mic settings are less efficient than before, maybe not efficient anymore.
    More improvements needed.

    Really cool, I’d love to build something like this as a diy project but I wouldn’t know where to start with transformers and pcb manufacturing.

    Maybe kind of a no-brainer, but I keep hearing both good and bad demo's, how does this compare to the Amplifire? Anyone?
