    Hi,

    I'd love to be able to use my AF3 as a multi effect with my existing amps, but the current nested menu control structure makes it unmanageable for live use.

    My suggestion is to implement MIDI-over-USB control for effect parameters so that users can hook up something like the $50 Behringer X-touch Mini (or any other USB controller) and use its endless encoders to control the AF3. The reason MIDI control by itself won't be enough is that there are no cheap MIDI-only controllers with encoders available, while USB controllers are plentiful.

    Not sure if that's feasible, but it would make the AF much easier to control live, and bring it closer to the Helix from a UI standpoint.

    Thanks,
    Yoav
