Line 6 Announces AMPLIFi FX100


Line 6 has announced the availability of AMPLIFi FX100, which they describe as the iOS enabled, cloud-enhanced multi-effects pedal that offers guitarists a fast and fun path to unlimited professional-quality tones. They say that, building on the introduction of AMPLIFi amplifiers at the 2014 NAMM show, the AMPLIFi FX100 multi-effects pedal offers guitarists a cutting-edge new way to dial-in amazing tones and effects.

Paul Foeckler, CEO of Line 6, told us, "We reinvented the guitar amp with AMPLIFi, giving customers a fast, fun way to dial up great tones and connect with a worldwide community of guitarists. Now, the availability of AMPLIFi FX100 further strengthens our leadership position in the floor multi-effects category, offering guitarists the awesome AMPLIFi experience in a purpose-built floorboard form factor."

"Since the AMPLIFi family launched at NAMM 2014, it has won multiple awards and received rave reviews from both customers and the press," stated Max Gutnik, Vice President of Products and Marketing, Line 6. "AMPLIFi FX100 is a proud addition to the family. Combined with the AMPLIFi iOS Remote app, FX100 offers unprecedented features like automatic tone matching, cloud connectivity, and wireless control, making it easier and more fun to create, rehearse, and jam."

Here's how Line 6 describe their new product:

Like AMPLIFi 150 and 75, AMPLIFi FX100 provides over 200 world-class amps and effects, making it the perfect front-end tone generator for any guitar amp. Featuring the groundbreaking AMPLIFi Remote iOS app, the AMPLIFi family allows guitarists to dial up amazing tones--including the award-winning Line 6 tones behind thousands of hit recordings--with unprecedented speed and precision. Since all AMPLIFi family products utilize the same technology, users can easily share patches between FX100 and the AMPLIFi guitar amps.

With wireless control, instant tone matching, Bluetooth streaming audio, and a continually expanding cloud-based library, AMPLIFi offers guitarists an incredibly fun and creative way to dial-in amazing sound.

* Compatible with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPad (3rd and 4th generation), iPad 2, iPad mini and iPod touch (5th generation)

Pricing and Availability:
AMPLIFi FX100 (£229 MSRP including VAT) is now available from Line 6 dealers worldwide, and is compatible with AMPLIFi Remote v1.1.

Picked one of these up in Friday, really impressed altogether. The sounds are really good but nothing you won't find in other 'amp and effect sim' units, what sets this apart is the iOS integration. Really great screen for editing effects, bidirectional communication so updating on the unit reflects on the Idevice and vise versa, and iTunes library streaming to the unit over Bluetooth. Really really well done.

I echo this, it's amazing. There's lots of tone libraryamp sim things out there, but this bridges the gap so nicely...I think that's because once you grab and edit some tones you like and save them to the hardware you can leave the guy entirely and get back to just plugging in and playing.

Another sweet feature is when you call up a song from your library the thing will try to match the guitar tone to available ones out there. Definitely the most fun I've had with a piece of guitar kit in a while, very very good
