Default Helix Native

Anybody got any impressions of the new Helix Native plugins?

I've not been a fan of Line6 stuff in the past but Helix seems a big improvement. Just interested if it is worth time playing with Helix Native.

I just downloaded the trial, very easy interface and and super light plug, the sound is about the same as the older models.
Here's a quick demo https://youtu.be/ucigG6GubD4

Not even the online activation window? Make sure your computer is connected to internet and see if that makes a difference.

Initially I thought it would work for me but mix time is always the tell all. Some of the amp profiles I thought were strong but the speaker IR's seemed a bit weak on various models. Much better results with outside IRs. I go back and listen to some of my work with the 11R and I am really pleased with some it. Always depends on the right guitar with the right amp. Hope some can find use with the Helix. I sold my rack.

It sounds the same as the hardware.
