Q: What are the differences with the old (V2) version?
A: It's mostly a new mechanical design with a built-in connector. Also, the included USB cable is longer and better suited for use with Guitars.

Q: Is the performance equal to the previous (V2) version?
A: Yes, it is exactly the same because this new version runs the same firmware on almost identical electronics.

Q: Why did you make a new version?
A: Based on the feedback we received we simply felt that we could (and therefore should) try making an improved version.
