Re: Poll for live gig users: Real amps or modelers?
modelling is also called faking the real thing.
I've done a fair bit of recording using a Johnson J-Station, and Line 6's Amp Farm, and the guitar just feels...... terrible, so unresponsive, just dead under your fingers - I can only put this down to having the guitar's signal chopped into 44100 little pieces every second then digitally reconstructed with all sorts of horrible things done to it. Sounds fine on tape, in a mix, but a really seriously unrewarding experience.
And besides, most engineers/producers change their mind about modellers soon after hearing what comes out of a TriAxis/2:90 rig in any case!
