to be honest I have not yet tried your suggestions in particular .. but I'm going to do it and also to tell you what I think ..

 

in the past, stimulated especially since Sean Halley wrote an article on that topic in the Line6 blog, I tried to do some experiments with those dep parameters, and if I remember correctly it seemed to me that they were good to adjust within a certain limit some details of the dynamics, let's say somewhat like the icing on the cake, the final touch..

they are the equivalent of modifying the internals on the amp... hardly something you'd want to rely on as a way to authentically recreate every tone.

i like to work within the confines of the authentically modeled amp...

not to say they can't be useful... but if i find myself there, i tend to question if i have the right amp selected for my needs in the first place.

thank you guys :)

 

I like the sound but I felt that it still lacked a bit of three-dimensionality compared to the original..
and so I made a further improvement to the patch, as soon as I find some time I'll update the information and audio demos

I find that I almost need to go buy a tube amp, so I push it to the limit. For the fender amps I push the bias to 100% because it causes less break up/ gives it that clean sound like 6L6's do. For Marshall amps I pull it down to 0% because it has a lot of break up like a Marshall.

No, I never posted patches on customtone..

 

anyway there is a precise description of the settings under each track on soundcloud visible when you select it
