Not to bad, they certainly grow on you and you can get good usable tones out of them with a little effort and good 3rd party Cab IR’s, although the included Cab’s are very useable :+1:

Having said that, if you are a seasoned Amp Sim user with a good collection, these likely won’t replace your goto.

If you are just starting out these would do nicely.

I belong to the first group, and own every software Amp Sim I know of, I got these included as a Mercury owner, but having played them I would have purchased them if I hadn’t received them as a Mercury inclusion.

$29.99, can’t really go wrong :+1:

What bothers me about the UI, is that it is not scrollable to get to the whole amp cab and perhaps have proper visuals of mic positioning on the cab. Waves, everyone else is able to do this, why not you?

The Focus control certainly makes this quite a powerful choice to find the right style of amp swiftly. Great amp for doing quick mockups… and more!!

The Studioverse Presets that are using these amp sims are pretty good starting points from what I have tried so far. The amps and channels cover a good range of solid sounds and I like the interface. I use Helix Native and Helix Editor for my Helix Stomp but I still prefer “skumorphic” interfaces to the Line6 slide bar.

I finally WUP’d and got Voltage Amps. I just love it. There’s a simplicity to it and it makes dialing in a good sound very fast, which is exactly what I need.

I have a hot rails pickup on my Strat & the Silverado amp – oh man. I get a sound that cuts through the mix perfectly but without being brittle or fatiguing. It’s one of those sounds where I go, “Oh. This works. Problem solved.”

I still need to try the bass guitar version… but so far this seems great!
