"Better than the 11rack"

Okay, I have had the Avid 11r for years, and it was great, even with the annoyances, like having to have a separate midi board for foot control among other things, they were fixed in the Headrush.On the 11r the tuner was always a touch twitchy, the Headrush is solid and can be seen from outer space. Another improvement, if you can count to ten while walking, you can operate a lot of the functions without reading the manual (but I do recomend it).Pedals and cab sims, they added a few, but, the old ones are still there if you have rigs you already like and want to transfer over. Volume, another improvement, the 11r you had to watch your settings or it disabled the volume controls, you had to go into menus and it sucked. Headrush, volume control right on top, so you can raise your amp volume and still control from the HeadrushThe presets, well, they suck, but, they suck less than the 11r, there is probably 150 or so that with a few adjustments are decent and useable.Outputs, so many, from 1/4 to XLR and USB. I have the 4 cable (suggest it highly, but dont forget to add a FX loop into your rig), I am using the XLR straight to the AMP and the USB for recordingIf you are thinking this will be a cooler Boss ME50 or 80, you are dead wrong, that would be like comparing the options in a 1970 car to a 2020 fully loaded, it can be easy, and you can develop into more intricate.So the sound, love it, some adjustments to my amp and cab, blows everything away. I have my main guitar, and amp I have zero intention of upgrading, this now made the list, something would have to be totally beyond belief, this thing is fantastic,If you are on the fence, but it, portable enough for a blues jam instead of carrying a bunch of pedals, and good enough if you are a live band.One feature I left out, you can organize a set list in an order you want to simply click up and down
