Amp pre only settings on 500x

Recommended Posts

If you select pre amp only on hfx edit it automatically throws up cab and mic settings, are they just there as a matter of course and have no function or do they function, I thought that the idea of pre amp only was to take those details out of the equation

You have to manually turn off the cab - even when using the Pre Amp only models.  Then the mic settings doesn't do anything.  Otherwise it will use a cab Impulse Response (IR) and that will change you're tone quite a bit.

I like to think of the Pre versions of the amps as just another color palette to choose from. Full amp or Preamp. Both with or without cab/mic. You can see freq responses and distortion levels here.
