Headphone output would be useful (for me):

With the compact and versatile IR-2 in your rig, you’re always ready to deliver your signature sound directly to a house PA or recording setup when needed. Choose from 11 premium amp types paired with Celestion Digital IRs and instantly tweak your sound via simple controls. Use the mono/stereo loop for post-amp effects and plug in headphones for monitoring and quiet practice. And with onboard USB-C, you can easily interface with music software and load in your favorite cab IRs.

  • Premium amp emulator and cabinet IR loader in a BOSS compact pedal
  • Exceptional audio quality with 32-bit floating-point processing and 96 kHz sampling rate

This almost feels like an April Fools joke it is so cool.

Want one! It would replace my old Fractal AX-8.

Will it be so much different in comparison to the GP-20 Amp Factory?

I have had the OD-20 and I was very disappointed by some of the distortion models. Maybe the IR-2 has a much more advanced sound than the Twin Pedal series.

I'd imagine the modelling software should have improved a fair bit over the last 20+ years since the Twin Pedals were released?

I surely hope so! The HM-2 emulation in the OD-20 is completely rubbish.

Have you tried an OD-200, Pepe? Wonder how that compares to the OD-20 (although I don't think it has an HM-2 emulation).

No, I haven't come across any of the -200 or -500 models yet. I have no doubts that they are pretty good.

That sounds like something very useful for easy recording or travelling. I'd be curious to try one.
