Really very good sounding plugin, also with a lot of useful additions and improvements, if compared to the original pedal.

The only complaint, I have, is, that you cannot deactivate the cabinet/speaker/microphone section in Normal, Lead and Bass mode or are able to additionally activate it in Modern mode. Not that these sections sound bad, quite the opposite, but if Arturia adds on the one hand a lot of useful features, it does not make much sense to me, if it on the other hand limits such an important section as the cabinet/speaker/microphone section only to a fixed, built-in option.

Adding another IR, if there already is one built-in, does not make much sense as it will not improve the sound, but I think, I am not the only user, who would - at least sometimes - like to use his own IR's sometimes instead of the built-in one or just to have this option too.

Of course you can use an external IR for the modern voicing, but if you prefer eg. the Lead or Bass voicing instead, you cannot deactivate the built-in one unfortunately.

On the other hand some new features like the Pre-Drive and Post-Drive filters/eq's are really very useful for perfect sound shaping, just to name some of them.

Apart from my single complaint, from which I hope, that it maybe will be added in a future upgrade, a really very good sounding and working plugin, not only for guitar and bass. To be honest, I have already heard worse sounding guitar or bass tube amp plugins, which usually also sonically are less flexible.

This sonic flexibility also makes this plugin to a simple, but effective all-round option for a lot of different, good sounding results, especially, if you look for some quick, easily adjustable, but good sounding results.

Arturia quality, meanwhile also available for guitar and bass are good news. At least for me.
