I had trouble getting amp sims to sound all that different from each other
I actually found this in part with the Fractal models. Over the years now of owming a Fractal FM3 and really delving into heavily adjusting all the wide amount of parameters in the modeling and effects, the modelings don't sound that truly different from the modded digital mapping eq response. After all it is just a digital model of the amp and not the actual analog circuit with the true componets providing a real basis for the character of the amp. And once you really get into shaping it and changing parameters, it certainly seems to me that whatever made it more particular in it's character like the particular amp it was trying to model, is removed a bit.
I really have had enough of the modelers from using them over time and the luster of there coolness wearing off. There convenient and while I'm trying to get rid of my FM3, I still have my amp sims in the computer if I want to use some. But the real thing is the real thing. Just like the convenience of throwing a good frozen pizza into the oven to quickly feed the desire for some pizza. But it's still not really good, fresh made NY pizza. Just a convenient frozen, half ass resemblance of some.
