Just a quick info, I searched for that one for days without finding any precise info..

That very powerfull input trim.. In reaper, my max input is measured at -6db. To have the models react as I expect them, I found that I have to set the input trim at -12db. At least for the Jumpy79J and Jumpy78 to have the gain "reaction" as I expect them. I don't know if that value is a constant for my system for any ampsim.. The bass amp sounds notoriously better with the trim at -24db

Here a great example of a "forgotten" input gain adjustement.. The guitar to the left is -10db i think, it's a jumpy79 with ownhammer checkerboard greenback. Sounds fine, even great. Guitar to the right is Jumpy78S (Soldano modded. Is it a hot mod btw?) with the input gain at 0. (initial). We can hear a kind of "zipper" effect, kinda like a big muff..
