I'm not one of those guys that comes out and posts how awesome his new gear is just to make it more appealing when I go to sell it.
This, however, isn't part of my "Real" rig. I needed something that would sound half decent directly recorded, and wasn't $2000. For $400, it should do the job, and if it sucks, I can still use it in front of my other amp (S160/Recto 412) for when friends like ol' Drew come over to jam. Having two complete rigs is always handy.
My initial thought is that I dig it, though I'm just farting with stock presets through headphones. The front panel is pretty intuitive, and switching models/effects is about 5,498e+Leon% easier than every other Line 6 thing I've used. You tap the right D-pad to the effect, then the 4 knobs below it become the settings. I like this.
If it can do a decent Recto impersonation direct into Reaper, enough for me to just arrange songs easily, it'll be well worth it to me. I won't use 95% of the other shit that it does.
When I eventually do finish an album, I'll mic the roadster, but for now I just want to be able to arrange w/headphones.
