Streaming music through the Amplifi is awesome . . . sounds crystal clear. The guitar on the other hand sounds muddy, thin, and fake. It seems that no matter how I adjust the tone controls (whether on the amp modeler, effects, or on the amp itself). I don't know a whole lot about sound dynamics, but it seemed a lot easier on my Spider IV - I love the sound I get from there, but can't seem to get the same from the Amplifi. Any advice would be much appreciated!

I think good tone starts with the guitar.  I usually like to have a fair bit of volume from my guitar,  at least at 8.  That way you get the pick ups actually doing their job.

The tone controls on the guitar make a big difference also.   Again start at at least 5 and bring it up from there to taste.  

This is all very subjective I think.   You can also radically change the tone using the amp bass, mid, and treble knobs,  as well as the eq in the app.   Then of

course there are effects with eq settings as well.  Whew no wonder it's hard to get a good tone happening.   Sometimes less is more, no?
