Amplifi TT For My Studio Guitar Processor - Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

I'm a current Dream Rig owner (JTV-69, HD500, DT25) and I'm thinking the TT is an ideal in-studio recording and practice unit. 

 

I've got a small studio and can't leave the HD500 out all the time, and I'd like to take advantage of the tone-matching in the Amplifi unit, which I can use to inform my programming of the HD500 if I take a tune to a gig.  With the USB output (or stereo analog out to my recording unit) I can put the TT in my rack, use it for outboard effects for recording and tone matching for practicing.  

 

I could instead get a HD Pro (expensive, no tone matching or cloud, but compatible patches with the 500), or a used XT Pro (no tone matching, same models, but less of them, can be controlled from my mac, but a legacy product.)

 

Or, if I spent just $75 more, I could get an Amplifi 75, then have a second amp, but it wouldn't record without micing.  

 

What would you do?

much depends on which use is more important to you... i have the TT and the hd pro x, and if i had to choose one i'd choose the pro... but for simple practice, and learning from the tone matching the TT may fit those needs better.

The price of the TT also is much less prohibitive - $200 vs $600!  This may be the main factor for me.  I can get the HD500 out and use it if I must, so the HD Pro offers convenience and compatibility, but no new functionality.  The TT offers the new functionality, but uses less sophisticated modeling and I can't directly transfer tones to the 500.  I can, however, use the same re-modeled gear and settings on the HD, manually, and hopefully achieve a similar result.
