pretty nice indeed...I've changed my path some. I use a radial aby box, the true bypass runs into my presonus blue tube pre-amp before getting recorded dry. I don't push the gain or drive much up on my bluetube, just enough for an ever so soft distortion. That signal is my re-amp and direct signal and I record it mono. Of course I can cut back on my buffers to demo sims with no latency.
I first tried it with just this sim and I was impressed right from the start. Then I put Magix Amphibia behind it and Magix ECOX after that and it really came to life. A very soft, warm tone and not harsh like some amps or sims, very nice for squeals and very low noise.
I've been liking Dirthead lately too, so for shits and giggles I added a submix bus and ran the same signal into a second track running Dirthead into another Amphibia. I moved the ECOX to the sub bus and put Samps stereo enhancer (three band) behind that. I mono'd out the low end on the enhancer, spread the mids a little more and the highs fairly wide. I hard panned each sim into the sub bus and it really blended nicely.
so far I impressed
edit: that was the white version, I just saw the other
