Nick, see, the thing is, "Echoes" is my J-Station.
The Rectifier model, a sane gain setting, with some delay going through a 1x12 cab model.
the j-Station is probably the most organic sounding modeler I've used to date, and while the Marshall models are crap, the Mesas and the Fender Blackface are quite good. Is it a match for the real thing? Not really, I haven't touched the J-Station for anything aside from bass amp stuff since I got my Nomad (I think the Recto model is closer to the Nomad's 3 Modern mode than the actual rectifier, imo, which I could never make myself care for...), but it IS possible to get useable sounds out of it.
But yeah, that was the thing... I only ever used three patches, the Fender clean, the Mark-IIC+, and the Rectifier, and that was after quite a lot of tweaking to make them sound the way they did. My Nomad, straight out of the box, sounded better to my ears than the J-Station - the tones were fairly similar, but with MUCH more open dynamics - if fact, if you dig around, somewhere here there's a thread where I posted a clip from the solo section of "Echoes" saying that that was the best tone I'd dialed up to date, but I was looking for something with a SLIGHTLY less grainy high end and that wasn't so compressed. IMO, those were the two biggest weaknesses of the J-Station (and in turn all modelers I've tried), and my nomad solved that.
Kinda funny, though, eh?
