Amplifire 12


#1

It seems they revamped their editor and improved their firmware, it sounds pretty good in this review:

Looks great for the price ($599)


#2

Looks very interesting, and not too pricey either. I was just thinking today I might look for a modeler just so I do not have to carry a big amp out with me, something I could plug into the PA, or some powered monitors and have at it. Instead of a pedal-board, amp, and a bunch of wires. That one looks very cool.

I wish Rabea and Danish Pete would do all the videos for Andertons.

$599 seems like an incredible deal! Line 6 just came out with a Helix HX stomp at about the same price point. I think the Amplifire is the better deal, though.

The AA is a great unit, but I can’t recommend Atomic as a company. On their forums, there are a bunch of people with all different types of problems that actually require customer service, not just user error.

Another reason I can’t recommend them is how they basically deprecated the AA3 without letting the AA3 owners know. They found out, in a firmware update, basically telling them that the new features in the AA6 and AA12 are not compatible with the AA3. Pretty shitty move on their part. A little warning would have been nice, at least for the forum members.


#5

What’s the difference between the AA6 and AA12? Just the number of buttons? It doesn’t look like either has a digital recording out either-just analog outs to whatever interface you have already.


#6

Same price range.

Mooer has a GE300 supposedly coming out around the holidays that does profiling at around $500-$600.

AX8 is on special now at $1100.

Pete thorn demoing the head rush is a big deal right? Doesn’t he say he won’t demo a new thing if he doesn’t like it feature wise and sonically?


#8

The thing about Pete Thorn demoing anything is that it’s no indication of what it might sound like in the hands of a mere mortal :grinning: He always makes everything sound like a million bucks.

He had a demo of the original, full size Headrush, too a while back. So he must not hate them.


#9

Yes 6 extra buttons.

There is a slight difference between the 3 and the 6/12. The 6/12 have updated memory to handle more features. That’s what happened with the latest firmware. AA3 users were left out in the cold.


#10

Evidently, Atomic really screwed the AA3 users. Their forums are filled with users having problems with the latest software. Glad I jumped ship when I did.
