Just got this (was released today)

Very nice bit of kit. Mirrors the hardware Helix units exactly - so you can match recording and live use. Or if you've got a monster machine, you can remove the equivalent DSP limits and go completely nuts.

There is a 14 day trial version on the website too.

It's launch day and the Helix fanbois have been going nuts so the servers are getting a hammering so it might be an idea to wait until the morning when the USA is asleep again!

If you have a Helix hardware unit then there are big discounts too. Full retail is $399. If you've got a Helix LT you get $100 off, if you've got a full fat helix or rack, then the cost is only $99 (+ vat)

Can install on 4 machines at once too - and change authorisations.

Wondering how to count in 15/4

It sounds just like the Helix through my headphones.

This is going to be so useful!

This raises an interesting dilemma...

Do I go for a Helix... or... Get the native plugin, Ableton live, Laptop

The latter would give me lot more capability technically. I mean it could even run a lightshow or similar

Although it's not live yet - the Native will be controllable with the helix footcontroller (the one used with the rack), so that's definitely possible.

Grab the 14 day trial version of native and try it.

It will probably show zero presets - just click on the helix logo and they will load

I would do but I really have to focus on writing at the moment :)

Just had ten minutes with the plug in - I've dropped it in to AU Labs (I'm on a Mac) to use it as a standalone app and it seems to work very well. Literally had no time to make any presets of my own yet, but now I have it in front of me, then I can't imagine that will take too long!
