Got a new PC+ 212 recently - what makes the speaker modeling so good?!

Recommended Posts

Hey, all!

 

I got my HX Stomp and PC+ 212 in recently.

 

I'm curious, why do the built in speaker models sound so freaking good?  What sets them apart from the Stomp speakers or IRs?  It just sounds WAY more amp like to my ears.

 

I find myself just building all my presets around the PC+ models. :)

The speaker models have no mic modeled when output through the Powercab speaker, so compared the cab sims and IRs in the Stomp, it probably sounds more authentic to you. i.e. more like simply playing live through an amp and cab in the room.

 

For a more apples to apples comparison, compare the direct out of the Powercab, which will apply the simulated mic and distance.

I 've bought a PC 212+ recently and I find the speaker mode really underwhelming, to be honest.

In FRFR or IR mode the cab is really good but the modelled speakers don't sound good at all to me. 

 

I've always played the Helix with real cabs and the speaker mode of the PC 212 is not even close to what an actual 2x12 cab sounds like.
