Basically it replaces an fx pedalboard about the size of a small town. If you don't use FX at all there's no need for such a thing

EDIT: Here is a pic of a rig someone has replaced by using a Helix...

Just watched video. Modeling’s come a long way, but the amp definitely sounds more 3D, IMO.

Helix dropped an update a few months ago that included a new BE100 model and a Mesa model. I guess they completely redid the method of creating models from scratch on these and the sound is amazing. Convinced me to buy, I run mine to a EHX 44 magnum into a 1x12. I’m thinking of getting the new Powercab they just released and calling it a day with that and the helix. I’m ready to ditch the rest.
