  • Line 6 version of an axe fx

    Anyone know if line 6 is working on something to compete with the axe fx. I see they've retired the flextone series and was just wondering what's next for them.

        I don't hate Line 6 much. I used to rock a HD147 in an original band. I really like my M13. I also just bought a SpiderValve HD100 MK1 on Ebay.

        I also own some decent tube amps, I just like to collect I guess.

            came in to post this.

            Add a Tyler Variax to that and it may actually be a pretty versatile rig. What can I say, I dug my HD147.

              I don't really know why they should "compete". Line 6 already has tons of more different types of products than Fractal will likely ever have and they seem to be doing pretty fine.

              ...In fact, one could ask when will Fractal release a product to compete with Line 6's guitar amps, or bass amps, or speaker cabs, or wireless systems, stompboxes, MIDI controllers, guitars, recording interfaces, softwares, etc.?

              Also, I can walk into a store and try a bunch of various Line 6 products there and walk out with one instantly if I like. Also, rather inexpensively I must add. Can't do that with Axe FX. So far it still remains as a product I've only heard about but never actually even seen one with my own eyes - or even seen anyone use one live. Line 6 gear on the other hand is pretty much a mainstay and if you see about 10 bands live then most likely at least one of them uses a bunch of their gear.

              Yeah, I realise that Snax FX is kinda one off professional product but I don't see how you can actually compare the two companies. Line 6 already produces rack-mountable, decent sounding guitar preamps and I can easily buy one from local stores without waiting times or price tag that introduces a gigantic moral hangover, so in my book Fractal should actually compete with Line 6 and not the other way around. :lol:

                What so they can dilute the market with something that's less than the highest quality? Why would you start selling wagon wheels if you already produce the best radials around?

                    because the gen pop can only afford wagon wheels.
                    which is why line 6 is still raking in the dough.

                      Quite frankly, yes. Like every other manufacturer that does it, you don't spin it as it's "less than the highest quality", you spin it as "now you can get Fractal design/quality at an affordable price".

                      I get it that Fractal isn't interested in entering that marketplace, right now, but that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world for musicians.

                        I can't imagine anyone at Line 6 is losing sleep over how to compete with Fractal. I pass a GC on my way home from work everyday, and I just about always see some mom, dad, or sloppy haired kid dragging a Spider combo out the door. They're doing just fine.

                          The 1 good thing is that Line 6 is FINALLY addressing and realizing the fact they REALLY REALLY needed to *UPDATE and IMPROVE* there tonezzz!


                          Now how it sounds is another story, but at least Line 6 is trying to address there basic tone


                          It actually is a good thing (big company is stepping up there product) for us gearheads imo!

                            The simple answer is no they are not going to be a Fractal type unit. It's not their market.

                            What they have learned is that you don't need a modeler with 100 amps. It's overkill and nobody will ever use all of them. In fact, most people that use any modeler usually hang on a few patches and that's it. Less models, but better quality is what people at Line 6 forums asked for, and we'll see how Line 6 delivers with POD HD.

                            For a few hundred bucks, the POD is not a bad deal at all. If the improvement of that is in the two grand range, only a select few who can afford it will proceed. The rest get free stuff off the web or buy a cheaper modeler and are mostly satisfied.

                              Well said. Now lets hope your accurate. I bought an XT for cheap and it works good.

                              Ive said it before, If line 6 would make for custom cab impulses it would greatly improve their existing tone.
