    Yep, it's still working just fine. Sounds just as good live as when I bought it too. New firmware and features would be nice but I've used the same presets for over four years live so I'll be fine if there's never another update.

    yes mine too but the added functionality is a bonus and it keeps people interested in the product. plus a couple new amp models would be nice. for example there are no orange, engl or bogner amps modeled and they are pretty well known brands with characteristic sound

    I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting more, but the Amplifire is a great sounding modeler, and it will remain great if they never update it again.
    Having said that...if I knew it was over, I would probably jump to something else.
    Plenty of great modelers available today, and several for under $1000.

    Surely they'll be close to a whole new version by now? NAMM just around the corner?

    lets hope so. i'd love a rack version that will give the axe-fx a run for its money.

    If the Amplifire is supposed to model real tube amps, there shouldn’t be ANY updates. I have owned a lot of tubes amps for a very long time, and not one of them has ever had a firmware update.

    Kidding aside, I bought an AA6 for what it could do, not for what it might do in the future. Expecting updates that were never promised is foolish. And yes, other companies issue more updates, but they also have more hardware revisions and stop supporting older versions.

    so you think atomic shouldnt have made the updates they already released? by that "logic" the amplifire shouldn't have the arkhan, the 65 or the SV Tee amp models or the improved SLO and they shouldnt have added the pitch shifter block or the improved ui. everything should have been as was in the very first AA.

    it's so confusing seeing ppl that claim to like this product not want to see it even better...remember guys you can always skip any update you dont like and not install it. keep that "original experience" you like so much

    Yup. Cold dead hands & all that.

    Sheeit, I still keep my 3 for recording original rhythm tracks at my drummer's place instead of lugging the big board with the 6.

    The only other box I'd consider would be the FM3. Even then, not sure I could make 3 footswitches work for me in a live setting. And while a small midi controller would alleviate the issue, even more programming is the opposite direction I want to go in.

    I've been on the waitlist since the FM3 announcement although I'm not 100% sure I'll make the purchase when I'm invited as I don't have any need that isn't already met with my Atomic or Kemper.

    On the waitlist as well, but will likely buy used when the dust settles.

    And who knows, by that time Atomic may have a new & improved (whatever that means) version that'll turn our heads in their direction.
