    I'm actually working on metal version of an Oingo Boingo cover this would be perfect for. So, maybe?

    I'm in love.

    Two tracks of the red channel out front with two tracks of the blue channel mixed in lower for grit and body. Signal chain is Guitar => Maxon 808 => EVH head => Captor => Ownhammer IRs. Not a perfect mix yet but I'm super happy with this sound already.

    I had the opportunity to fire it up this evening after work and I am really impressed. Or at least I was after I turned the volume back down and realized I may have made myself deaf with the first chord I hit. The volume knobs are no joke on this thing.

    So here's my take on it after jamming with it a bit tonight. The clean channel is as expected, sparkling clear. I mean, it's a Fender after all. The blue channel is surprisingly close to a Recto / SLO. It has the same feel and throaty grit a recto does and reacts to an overdrive just like a recto. I was surprised at this channel for sure. The red channel is the business. It's why I wanted this amp. Super saturated, I'll never have the gain past 10 o'clock, and it's every Marshall/Friedman-style heavy rhythm or lead sound I could want. Instant bliss with or without an overdrive in front, but it grinds perfectly when I put a Maxon 808 out front.

    The FX loop and MIDI implementation work perfectly. The manual makes the MIDI setup sound a lot harder than it is.

    The only con I can think of is there is no master volume. The power amp is always on full bore and the channel volumes are preamp volumes. Much like many smaller amps, when you turn the volume past 1 it's an immediate jump to arena volumes, there's no taper. It's not the worst thing in the world, but it makes it harder to set noise gate levels for home, band practice, and live use when you don't have a consistent preamp level to work with.

    Bottom line, this is a fantastic-sounding amp!

    Those channel volumes are master volumes just not a global one.

    Few solutions for you. Taper wise you can put a resistor in series with the output from the pots that will give you a smooth adjustment from the bottom of the control but you will lose the last bit but I doubt anyone runs amps like these with the master maxed.

    Or just throw a pot in a pedal box with a couple of Jack's and throw it in your loop instant global master.

    This, but if you've already put a GEQ in there, they all have volume controls
