Read the whole thread, very informative!
Since OP is asking for us to stop him from buying an Axe-FX III, here's my humble advice:
Buy a Kemper, spend the rest of the money to book some actual studio time in the near future. That way you'll be "forced" to spend the time composing and practicing instead of turning knobs and editing stuff in menus.
(Btw, I used to be the "the more knobs the better" type, now the simpler something is the more I enjoy it.)
