It’s cool to see Line 6 already really running with their new AMPLIFi line, which was introduced at NAMM a few months ago. The newest addition is the AMPLIFi FX100, an iOS-enabled, cloud-enhanced multi-FX pedal which lets you do, well, pretty much anything: create and share tones, jam to tracks in your music library via Bluetooth, connect to an amp or external speakers, or even play music from your iOS device into your stereo while sending your guitar sound to an amplifier.
