I assume this will mean the plug-in version of Pod folds into Cubase. I wonder if that means it'll be removed from Reason

I was just thinking how this might affect the Line 6 content in Reason...

I cant see why it would affect Reason. That would be like saying that Reason isnt worthy of the content. Im confident that there will be no removal of Line 6..

My opinion: Yamaha can have 'em. Line 6 is great in terms of its basic functionality, but it's very generic in terms of sound. They have great wireless and live sound products, but the PODs are soooo dead.

I owned a POD HD500 because of the amp and effects models. The amps are HD, but not the effects. Also, the volume is totally inconsistent between patches, especially going from clean to hi gain. The company half-***es their customer service, website organization, and information availability, too.

To me, Line 6 is once again surface level company with no substance. Yamaha - another company that has grown too big for its britches (again, in my opinion) seems the perfect foster parent to take these idiots in.

For the record, I've had a great customer service experience with Line 6 the one time I needed it.

The Line 6 devices in Reason were a one-off thing four years ago; they've never been updated. I doubt they will be removed, but even if they were, it wouldn't exactly be a loss; they stink.

The HD Line isn't bad, but there are still much better options out there.

Line 6 is yesterday's papers.

Maybe it's the PA side of things Yamaha is interested in.

Yamaha must see some value in some Line 6 properties, maybe the modeling guitar (not amp modeling) maybe the wireless products, the amp modeling seems to be a bit lost in the sea of competing products. I will be curious to see if the brand is retained or discontinued.
