People forget now that the Line6 and Fractal devices have been out for years that they also launched with all kinds of problems. It took months for Fractal to get the FM3 to shape without USB issues and the latest firmwares still have plenty of bugs. By comparison I have felt that QC hasn't had any major ones except that power supply noise issue some were experiencing. I never ran into it myself so it might not be a problem with the way electricity is in Finland. Making new hardware and software is not easy. Making a device that surpasses devices with a decade or more of incremental development behind them is even harder. NeuralDSP overestimated how fast they can get it out. If they had taken one more year to develop it and released it this fall like the original plan was for last year, it would have been better received and in a more ready condition. So far they have been pretty quick at pushing out small improvements, 2 updates within a month. I warned people well before release that QC would not be a game changer. That's a very difficult thing to be when digital modeling is so good already. But the QC does raise the stakes in several areas: Hardware design, usability and capturing/profiling. Having had the QC for almost a month, as a device I felt it was the best of the bunch. It looked good, felt good and was nice to use. It was purely on the software side where it needs more work.
