    The Apex has pretty much been the only thing to come out of NAMM this year that has piqued my interest. I'm really not an OD aficionado (my strategy has always been "plug in a TS9 and shut up"), but releasing The Best TS9 is interesting enough to make me want to try it. Especially since they didn't put any bells and whistles on it. If your OD has more than three controls I don't want it.

    A wireless receiver for editing would be cool, but then they’d need an app, too. The way Helix works right now the Editor is just an interface for the hardware, so you can even view patches or rearrange presets without the hardware connected. I’m personally hoping for some advanced wireless (maybe WiFi?) or a stripped-back power cab that doesn’t cost a stupid amount of money.

    I guess that's the least trashy of the Friedman original names.

    Whelp, there's the Sigil. Looks smaller than I expected. Guess it won't be long now before we find out what it is / if it's an Ola sig:

    IIRC aren't Fortin heads just... really huge? :lol: It actually looks pretty big for a lunchbox head.

    Interesting to see that Mike's getting into the cab game now. I mean, it's a given, but this the first time I saw him make cabs.

    Although given he seems to outsource a lot of his builds now, it makes sense.

    This is getting money from me at some point this year. The only problem is Nord putting out the Wave 2 and Roland with the Jupiter X/XM.

    Jason Frankhouser who demos all the Fortin stuff has had an evil pumpkin for like 10 years. Don't we all know what it sounds like by now?

    OMG, Korg is reissuing the Keytar. Do we really want to return to the 1980s this badly? :lol:
