So, I just realised the default voicings on my DT50 have cab sims. Can anybody tell me what they actually do. Someone who actually knows, not just speculation - I can guess as well as anybody. I run it through a THD 2x12, and using the cab sims doesn't sound rubbish like I would expect. I can switch them off via midi with the new firmware to compare.
So, they are clearly not full cab sims - more like what the pod does when it's not in 'studio/direct' mode. Are they just some eq (that's what it sounds like), or are they more than that? Does the dt50 phase them out as the amp gets louder? It seems a bit silly to have a cabinet sim going when you're driving a real cab to speaker break-up.
