its almost comical to see someone that owns all those great amps, cry for digital models...
Yeah I guess it does.
I use those amps in the studio and when my full band does live shows but I use the HD 500 for Duo gigs so I don't have to haul the amps on gigs where they won't fit anyway.
Line 6 has a basic good product there that they just need better sources to model.
There's just too many good amps out there to be wasting time on pawn shop stuff like the Gibtone 185 & Super O.
If I only have 16 amps to choose from I'd rather they would be real work horses like the ones I've mentioned.
I mean come on the Marshall 800 they modelled sounds like crap.
I've had dozens of 800s come through my studio over the past 20 years (on top of the one I own) and none of them sounds as shitty as the one in the HD 500.
I can't get it to sound good no matter what.
It's so bad that I bought a Tech 21 Marshall pedal and run it through the HD 500 effects loop.
At least it sounds like a Marshall.
