When I reviewed the Line 6 AMPLIFi, one of the missing features was Android support. Line 6 had a good reason for not having support at the time, but they have overcome the technical hurdles to bring AMPLIFi to Google’s platform with AMPLIFi Remote v2.0. The update, which is also available to iOS users, features being able to automatically match songs to songs via the cloud, a library of over 200 guitar amps and effects pedals, and you can even share these tones on social media. If you aren’t familiar with the Line 6 AMPLIFi line, you really owe it to yourself to check one out.
