LINE6 AMPLIFi amps

BobF

I've checked the Line6 site for a manual. None yet.
Question:
Are these amps fully configurable with a PC via USB?
IOW, is an iOS device a requirement to get full benefit from these amps?
I'm NOT an iPerson, but I am interested in these as standalone and as FRFR for other modelers.

Hi Bob F,
The amp does function stand alone as a modeling amplifier. However, to use all the guitar amp features available on the AmpliFI remote app…(graphic editing, download and upload of presets…etc) you need to be connected to iOS. For audio streaming/playback you need to be connected to iOS or Mac/PC

That's too bad. I can't believe they limited themselves market-wise like that.
Oh well ... maybe a future version or something from another mfr

…the demo we saw didn't focus much on exactly what can be achieved edit wise from a MAC/PC. There may be an editor GUI available on computer, but our demo was mainly focussed on iOS features. We haven't actually received any of these yet ( ?!?!) but hopefully soon.

so there is still hope ...
I normally wait for a round of updates on new tech anyway.
