    Hey everyone! I hope you're all doing well! This Black Friday I'm thinking about upgrading my interface but not sure if it's gonna worth it. I've been using HX Stomp to record via USB and I'm curious if investing in another interface would really improve my sound or if my money can better be spent elsewhere like on more VSTs or plugins. Any advice is appreciated!

    I forgot to mention I primarily use the HX Stomp for monitoring and re-amp the DIs with neural dsp stuff.

    Not really, no. Helix units have pretty crappy latency though, so if you're using VST instruments and you can't lower the buffer size enough to get rid of the latency, that's a good reason to upgrade. But if you're only recording guitars, obviously, since Helix is a modeler, you can monitor directly from it, bypassing the software-related latency problems.
