just FYI, I got the Helix. I am travelling though, so won't get to play with it for a while

That's what the podGo and HX Stomp are for. Fairly scaled back, and I imagine they still have an in for expression pedals if you needed it.

Basically most of the buttons are assigned to Snapshot mode on my Helix, which lets you change a heap of variables on all the different blocks at once, seamlessly.

^^ I think snapshots would really make the stomp most useful. Since I have the floor, and I'm old and dumb, I use mine mostly in stombox mode because I'm used to old pedalboards and that's how I'm used to using it.

For me, the stomp is best on a pedalboard with some additional outboard fx and possibly an expression pedal- or potentially a fly rig since it'd totally fit in my telecaster case.

The podGo just seems like a total win for simplicity & weight for sundays. I love the floor, but tbh the thing is heavy. It's better than pedalboard+amp by a lot, but I like slimming down even more.

That said, if I bought a Go, it might be cheap enough for me to just leave it at church all the time?

I've spent around 10h playing with the Helix so far.
I like it.

Will use it on Saturday for a worship service. Meaning I will use it from 1pm until 9pm that day. I will really get to battle test it.

It seems like something that will take years to master, but I think I managed to get something usable for Saturday fairly quickly.

If all goes well, I might end up selling my analog rig soon.

Yeah, I've barely used a fraction of what it's capable of. Literally one of my primary FX is one I copied from my HD500X still using the same legacy pedals.

Updated to 2.9 last night.

A lot of cool features, but also a number of bugs they need to fix.

I saw 2.9 and got excited at the feature list.

What bugs are you having?

I experienced that certain presets/snapshots with IRs give an error when I try to copy/paste. But works fine in my same presets with a Cab instead. So no big deal, then I will just use the cab version of the preset.

I also had a problem that one of the footswitches was not working suddenly after the update. But after restarting it, it works fine now, so no issue anymore.

I think a restart of the device is good after update anyway. Because a lot of people were reporting that tap tempo was not working correctly after updating (haven't tried it myself), but a guy said that a restart fixes the issue.

Also, global settings are reset. Apparently if you do a backup and restore it to that backup after updating, your global settings don't get reset. I didn't know this. So I spent a few minutes after update fixing my global settings.

Oh yeah, global settings was an issue, but I don't have that many things preset on that anyway.

The other issues are a drag though.
