I too have a Variax and a POD X3 Live! that have never given me a problem in 6 years. Guitar players that visit my studio are always impressed with the capabilities. I don't see the "purist" guitar players giving up their Strats or LPs or their tube amps or pedals anymore than I see true Hammond and Rhodes purists using substitutes instead, but they do have their place. As a keyboard player who dabbles in guitar (and technology), I got them because I wanted to cover as many bases as possible. Kinda like my Kronos does.

I see Yamaha buying Line 6 as a good thing as Yamaha will be able to pour more resources into Line 6 R&D. It should be amazing watching what they come up with AND seeing that technology trickle down into Cubase. If you don't know, they partnered with Bogner and developed a real tube amp a few years back and have developed a simple (idiot-proof) PA system that you can run from your iPad on stage or from the audience. Worth watching the videos on YouTube if you haven't seen it yet.

V1 versions of Rebirth were distributed by Steinberg, I sold them at the time with a Steinberg logo on the packaging.

You are right, I dug up the old box and there's the big old Steinberg logo. My bad!

My biggest hope is that there now could be a VST-version of Line 6' "Echo Farm". This is most certainly the one plug-in I miss most when I come from working on TDM-based systems.

... not that the Echo Farm's delay models would be so extraordinary - but the all JUST WORK. Maybe the most efficient FX-plug-in (sound-wise, that is) I used during the last 15 years or so ...
