2018…what is it ?
still Fractals or Amp Sims (which ones?)…clean heavy metal?
are there still loyalists to the Marshall Tube amps and a SM57…
I have 2000 Pod Farm 2 Platinum amp sims (and some others I dont use because they didnt sound better than Pod Farm). I went and got a $100 Pod rack unit like Weezer used and a few others temporarily before going back to real amps…and then I wonder is the Fractal really that much better?
Brandon and his sidekick, did the pedal versions and he wasnt saying his Fractal was much better than the new Line 6 HD500 stuff as I recall. That was years ago already.
I might go grab a Fractal used for a weekend and compare. I have a decent live amp but last live amp stuff was a hassle, the Amp Sims kind of beat out the real amps for me…like drums I dont have a good room and am not a drummer and all the mics and etrc…Superior Drummer or WikiDrums is fine.
Maybe theres not been any improvements in the past years of 24bit/ 64bit or 32 bit amp sims and Fractals going from Ultra to III… or Pods going from $100 to the new Helix $1500…
Im confused why a rack unit would sound better than Amp Sims?
