Finally, a modeller that I see can be the "best" in some way:
http://www.howleraudio.com/index.html
And as a firm believer of open source, I call it best not because of its tone, but because it allow ways to completely change it. (kinda like how Linux is better than MS Windows)

So for a programmer like me, this is like a godsend, assuming it's true open source... and may be the midas touch need to heal all those broken Spider III out there.

Here is the specs:
- Propeller Processor (eight independent 80MHz cores or "cogs")
- 1MByte SRAM
- 44kHz 24-bit sampling (2 input channels and 2 output channels)
- 4 control knobs
- 16x2 LCD screen
- 2 stomp switches
- 2 stomp indicator LEDs
- 1 1/4 inch audio input
- 1 1/4 inch audio output
- 1 multipurpose 1/4 inch audio jack (can be used as either a second output (for stereo effects) or as an additional input
(for modulation effects etc.))
- NTSC Video out
- Micro USB
- 9V DC Power in
- Headphone out (mini phono jack)
- RJ45 expansion port (for potentially adding things like external foot pedals)
- Steel chassis

Sounds cool. Now lets wait for it to hear what it is capable of.

If this OpenStomp works reasonably well, it might start a new trend in the music community.

i'm fascinated by this sort of thing, can't wait for it to be released, i hope its readily available in the UK. Thanks for posting
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Looks really cool. Have to see what the post-release opinion is.

Looks like the cheapest thing ever built, cosmetically. And it isn't even a picture of the real thing.

And that workbench program looks like something you'd find on a Windows computer from the 90s.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

its concept art for the pedal, since its not finished yet, i'm guessing the workbench software isn't yet finished either.

Thank God, because at the moment both are really ugly

Actual specs look good though, but I'm not too sure how well it'll sell.

Well I mean the guy who makes it made some presets and it comes set with some as well. If it sells enough and gets big that means even more presets.

$350 is too much for it imo... it'll probably cost £250 in the UK then...

Sorry, but this is the best modeler.

Pricey, yes, but I SERIOUSLY doubt that that thing can match up in anyway to the Axe-FX.
