BRT, NRM and JMP

Recommended Posts

Hello All,  question concerning  BRT, NRM and JMP?  Was wondering why they are their own seperate amps ? their real counterparts are just one amp head  so is there a reason Line 6 did not incorporate 3 seperate amp settings for BRT, NRM and JMP in one amp which could be switchable via  snapshots or foot switches ? 
thanks all

My uneducated guess is DSP considerations. Providing a single model with the 3 switch option would probably require so much DSP that the user would have much less flexibility in using other FX blocks in the preset.

Ahh yeah that would make sense

I don't think Silverhead's guess is that uneducated.  It certainly makes sense to me.  Given the core circuits of each variation require their own unique models, and that it's probably not all that likely that someone would use all three of those variations in one preset, you would still be able to switch between two using snapshots but would still have a significant DSP savings over a single model with all three variations.  The savings would be even greater if you only used one model in a preset which is the most likely scenario.

The Jump model is exactly like the real amp and you can control the Bright and Normal volumes (and tones for that matter) via snapshot and/or footswitches. Keep in mind this is one of, if not the most DSP heavy amp model in the Helix because those channels react very differently both on their own, and in any combination with each other. 

 

They were separated for those that ONLY want to use one channel or the other and will save them a lot of DSP.  There are many Marshall players that don't Jump their channels... so this is a very practical solution for them.
