AMPLIFi FX100 Guitar Pedal by Line 6
Line 6 FX100 - The Revolutionary Guitar Pedal of the Future!by Danny Edwards
We have taken some time out to appreciate the FX100 and some of its ground breaking features. Here is an insight into some of the cool things you can do with it.
Control Effects Through iOS Devices
No longer do you need to navigate through complicated menus upon menus to achieve the perfect tone - you can quickly and easily dial them in wirelessly from the remote iOS app to your FX100 without any hassle. Plug it in to your amp, PA or headphones and jam away.
Share and Download Tones via The CloudThere is a vast selection of 200 world-class amps and effects to get experimental with - you can simultaneously run 8 effects at a time to build some epic signal chains. You can download, share and rate people's tones via The Cloud - this unlocks to a whole new community for guitarists and allows you to access tones you may otherwise struggle to achieve. This is where we feel the FX100 really delivers where others cannot - it is as if you can share your own complete pedalboard in an instant to someone else. It looks like the AMPLIFi App is only available for Apple users at the moment - watch this space.
Here is what the app looks like on an iPad:
Revolutionary Tone-Matching Technology
You can play along with your favourite tunes from any iOS device and it will transmit via bluetooth, making practice sessions so much easier to setup with no need for extra cables or speakers. Want to get the same tone as your favourite guitar player? The FX100 uses tone-matching technology to work out the exact guitar tone that the track uses, and lets you emulate your favourite bands - a feature that offers both amateurs and professionals a variety of practical and educational uses. You can plug into headphones or take it gigging and plug into your amp - making this extremely versatile.
The Line 6 AMPLIFi FX100 could be the start of something big. It allows us to integrate the brilliant user friendly interface of the iOS into our guitar gear and unlocks a whole new world of features. You can pre-order yours with us today!
