New user here. First of all, I wish to thank Kazrog for such great product. :tu:

Does anyone here have an experience to simulate Roland Jazz Chrous (not the chorus and reverb part nor cabs). I am talking about amp section. I already have 3sigma's JC IRs.

I've just bought Thermionik while not being a high gain/metal music fan just because of Clean and Crunch sounds

And I personally dislike Bias, Guitar Rig and Amplitube and never give them a penny just because of decent JC Emulation.

So, I appreciate any suggestions on approximation using solely Thermionik

Thanks in advance

I'd try the Blackverb model - it's got a similar brightness to it as a JC. It's not going to be exactly the same, of course, but it will get you in the ballpark.

I have owned a Roland JC-55 since the mid-80s. It is still my main practice amp. While it is not quite the JC-120 due to its cabinet/speakers, the amp section is very similar. I actually found the Guitar Rig sim to be not too awful. Overloud TH3 also has a JC-amp model which, while it takes some tweaking, is worth checking out if you're a fan of the JC sound--I use this one the most when I want to emulate my physical amp ITB.

Thanks for answers everyone! Will try out your suggestions.
I've experienced good JC implementation in Line 6 POD Farm as well.

For those who are interested
Just got very decent results with Thermionik Marshland 75 (Normal Channel, Amp Saturation Set To 0) + 3sigma JC IRs. Recabinet IRs (Chordal 2x12) work very well too.
