Definitely seems like an interesting piece of kit.
I've got a Blackstar LT Distortion pedal that also has their ISF, and it's a nice unit.

It's a cool amp but it has some problems/annoyances.

1. There is the definite hum and buzz.
To fix it, they added something in the software which silences the amp when the guitar output is below a certain level. And, it sometimes gets in the way by cutting off or the buzz is just too loud to kill it.

2. In this model, there is no tuner on the amp itself. You can launch the tuner on the computer but it's a pain in the ass.

Plus, they don't have a linux client and only Windows/Mac. So, just a little extra headache for me.

There is enough tonal variety to work as a passable practice amp. It is light and you can move it around. Not having the tuner on there is the major pain point for me since my Gibson goes out of tune quite a bit.

I have it and hate the constant hum. Too lazy to ship it back.
Many people complain the background noise here.

This model goes on sale often.
I guess its because of the hiss issues.

The controls remind me of the Roland Mini Cube.
