Nice review, as usual Taylor. :-)

Just out of curiosity - why is there background hiss for the Amplitude samples but none for the real X100? I would expect the opposite since Amplitude is digital. Do you use something to eliminate the hiss from the X100?

I couldn't figure that out. Must be something to do with my interface (Yamaha AG03). But I too thought it was ironic, and I hope I don't run into the same issues with an iRig because now I want one of those to gig with.
