Lols like the  GE300 will be way more expensive. They are quoting over $900 Canadian which would be around £700 over here. I cannot see that hurting Line 6 at all. 

It seems to be going head to head with the Helix LT which is similarly priced. Obviously Helix has a much stronger brand and following in this space. 

But hey - in the past two years with advent of the new Helix range we've got to a stage where a lot of us are already considering replacing their entire analogue pedal collection with a digital multifx. And more competition is only going to push the needle further in that direction.

Yep I paid £20 for my B1on so frankly I’m just pleased it works, but it doesn’t stop me wishing someone would make a top quality battery powered modelling multi fx headphone unit. Come on Roland! 

Thats all i want....oh, and for it to be under £100 🙂

Still tempted to try a Palmer Pocket to use with my BDDI.

There are enough DI style things out there but it quite what we want. Let’s design our own :) call it the Bchat

I didn't know you could do that. 

You can extend the life of 'normal' batteries with any recharger I would have thought (not just the one dB linked to).

But not for anything like as long as proper rechargeable batteries.

That one supposedly charges at a slower rate than a regular one to allow safe recharging of ‘non-rechargeable’ batteries.

Has anyone been able to update the FW? ive spent over an hour tonight trying to do it and every time i get an error that says 'illegal device connected'

Guitarlab works fine so i know the drivers are loaded, and the updater can see the correct device.

UPDATE: I took the files etc to my sons laptop and managed to do it from there.

Can you switch individual effects on or off with the big buttons? Clearly you can ddo it with the little red buttons, but if you are gigging and want to turn the chorus on or the echo, can you do that?

You can only scroll through different effect patches (up to 50 in banks of 10). So you would need to set up one patch with a chorus and another one without etc.

Is there a noticable change in levels (assuming almost identical patches) switching between them when playing, like a click or something?

The volume level on each effect in a patch can be adjusted as required so you can get the same overall volume for each patch.

Silent switching between patches.

Hi everyone!  Are there any forums /websites for sharing patches?  

You can share them in the B1-Four Patch ideas thread on here.

I currently own a B3n and I've been wondering for awhile... Is there a difference between the processor of the B1-4 and B3n? Are they equal in terms of sound quality? Sorry if I missed any mention of it in this thread previously!

My understanding is that these two Zooms have the most up to date Zoom processors. Having had both the B3n and the B1X-4, the sound quality of the effects, which are all shared, should be the same.
