I'm demoing their new SS-11X and i really like it.
There are some good amp softwares out there. I am still mostly using either my Axe Fx 1 (have it like 10 years almost) or my Kemper with my custom profiles which somehow gives me more what I am looking for when it comes to meaty metal sounds.
Going to try this approach and compare with what I'm currently doing. Should learn a bunch in the process. Many thanks !!
here are my current faves for chunky - Ownhammer HH1 through WoS.
Hah! Your screenie of studio one console looks just like what I have been doing lately, set up a bunch of sims, then click through to A-B and find the winner. Blow out your ears/monitors on feedback by turning a bunch of them on
these sims really jump alive when sent to 2 buses panned.
say what you will about Amplitube 4, but with some finessing in the Cab Room, it's still my go-to when starting a new track.
Ignite is killer too.
i've been trying to get the Poulen Soldano running, but it's not showing in Studio One for some reason.
Anyone get it to work?
the .dll files i have:
Same here - I've tested pretty much all the countless alternatives out there but for distorted guitars the TSE X50 is by far the one that comes closest to the realism of the Kemper I once owned (but had to sold as I needed money and couldn't justify keeping it as I rarely recorded any guitars ) The TSE X50 has that creamy distortion that comes closest to a real amp mic'ed.
forgot about that one!
I recently decided to stop the head-spinning about what's the best sim and decided to just work at being good at Amplitube 4 (although I will probably do the TH-U upgrade to keep pace). Most of my use is on sampled guitar (by choice, I can play but want to get good at programming vi) and I find the bigger challenge is the tone of the source (true with real guitar too). Second biggest challenge for me is space, getting the environment/depth right. In the end the amp is the genre part (again, for me).
Which one do you recommend instead?
just tried the TSE X50 demo.
sorry, I read "forgET that one" and you wrote "forgot that one" - so I thought you don't like the TSE X50 and would recommend something else instead Sorry for the confusion. Yes, the TSE is awesome. Everything else I've heard and tried so far sounds like the typical digital amp sim. Cold and artificial, harsh distortions. The TSE has that real amp feeling.
Thoughts on the IK Amplitude Fender collections? Quality?
Interested given the current deals that are on at the moment...
Scuffham S-Gear. no.1
BIAS are pretty fast to work with.
I'm still on TH2, got too many presets dialled in now.
But LePou stuff is probably the best, I'd have paid £££ for them considering the quality and ease of use.
I have Amplitube, but only ever use the SVX series for v-bass, which I think is really good. For faux guitars, I have settled on Scuffham S-Gear and Kazrog Recabinet 4.
Since then I'm done looking because there are simply too many out there...
what are you using for Cabs?
agreed, i have settled into Neural DSP's Plini for the time being.
