Musikmesse 2014: Line 6 has followed up the launch of its innovative AMPLIFi amplifier at NAMM with the AMPLIFi FX100 multi-effects pedal.

The iOS enabled, cloud-enhanced pedal takes some of the features of the amp and bundles them up with some pedal-y goodness for a multi-effects unit that sounds like it's been beamed in from the future.

First up, it lets guitarists wirelessly control sounds via an iOS device, meaning players can dial in sounds using the AMPLIFi Remote iOS app, which promises easily navigatable screens and ease of use, and uses Bluetooth to connect with the pedal.

Additional features include the ability to link up with music libraries and play along with streamed audio, and tone-match with sounds within your music colection. Frankly, it the system works as well as it claims to in this regard, it's going prove incredibly popular. We'd want one, that's for sure.

The pedal can connect to amps, external speakers or headhopes, and can split outputs to send a track from your music library to your sound system and your guitar tone to an amp.

Built-in features include eight simultaneous effects, over 200 amplifiers, effects and cabinets, 100 onboard presets, a metal chassic, tap tempo/tuner and Bluetooth streaming compatible with iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

Additionally, the AMPLIFi Remote app features controls that allow you to set tonal parameters, automatic tone matching which 'instantly provides the perfect tones for jamming with songs in your music library', access to thousands of tones online, cloud support which allows for backup, preset storage and tones to be shared and rated, and compatibility with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPad (third and fourth generation), iPad 2, iPad mini and iPod touch (fifth generation).

The AMPLIFi FX100 will be shipping in May, and we're pretty keen to get our hands on one to see if it's as impressive as it sounds...
