Saw this on the Sneap forum, not sure what to make of it really. I mean, home-recording and subsequently amp-modelling are getting ridiculously popular, and if this aids people in achieving a pro tone without doing any engineering then more power to them.
But... and this isn't anything to do with real amp elitism or anything, I'm not saying the real deal is 'better', because 'better' is too subjective... but I feel it just takes the fun out of everything
I actually enjoy trying to nail a tone from a real amp, experimenting with mic positions, head/cab combinations etc. But you know, if that's the case then I don't have to buy one do I
I'm just saying... this new technology is awesome and everything, but I feel like people are skipping a massive step in the learning process in order to get a tone that fits their mix.
Studio-wise it's a great tool like Andy says in the video, for if you want to do some overdubs but the mics have been moved or something.
