Sounded like camera mics, so hard to judge but I'll agree with the sock guy that the the first tone sounded pretty good at a minimum. I still wouldn't spend $1600 on that thing and step on it.

I was faced with that when I bought the Bias Head. It's essentially the Bias Amp you can get for infinitely less on PC or even less on a fuckin' iPad. At the end of the day, I liked the idea of putting those tones into a box I can throw under my arm and plug into a reasonably accessible cabinet at a gig or friend's house. For what I paid (I would NOT have paid new price), it's worth it not carrying a fragile laptop or iPad and fragile squid/dongle to plug it in.I mean, what did you expect? For free or for $1600, a well-made sim of a 5150 will still just sound like a 5150.
Well, yeah, amp sims run on anything have sounded good enough to pass for the real thing if used competently since like 2008.I was just referring to the most recent YT video that was posted. I didn't watch any of the other marketing fluff videos because I'm not buying one, I detest their schtick and I don't want to give them the clicks. I only watched the clip I did because somebody mentioned one of the tones sounding "good" so I was curious what his idea of "good" is.
Most amps and most modelers sound like shit from a single mic, especially the "one inch from the grill, pointed straight at the cone" type of demos. I've heard $2000 vintage tube amps sound like a Pocket POD because the frequency spectrum and attack of the mic outside of any context is so limited.
Rarely you can pick out a good tone regardless of context and I was just saying that first tone was one. Everything else, no idea. Could've been live amps and they still sound like cheap butt through that mic setup. I'm sure Ola's going to get one of these and every patch is going to sound 1000%. I'm still not buying one and stepping on it.
Basically the same thing though. Modern influencer culture has only two types of transaction, converting cash to exposure, and converting exposure back into cash.Corrected. I know what at least one of these guys charges per 'review'.
That's the problem with this shit :lol:"You can't judge the sound because camera mics" :lol:
Have you seen the production values on their fucking high budget youtube ad? :lol:
The only time you use camera mics is when
a) Camera mics are all you have, or it's a really casual situation (e.g., not a "claiming you have the most advanced modeler ever, available for ~$2000" situation)
b) You purposefully want to use the excuse "camera mics were hampering me" when people point out your shit isn't that great
I specifically like how their classic rock crunch is just the djent tone with slightly less gain.
I mean, yeah, it sounds adequate.
You can also get the same sounds on amp sims running on a Raspberry Pi 4.
Which starts at $35.
Take a wild guess how many cores the Raspberry Pi 4 has.
"Well.....it sounded decent on camera mics......", falls somewhat short of their claim of "the most powerful modeler ever created".
That's like if I claimed I had developed the most advanced camera ever, and then when it was time to show proof I was like, "IT'S THE MOST ADVANCED CAMERA EVER, UNFORTUNATELY I COULD ONLY TAKE PICTURES OF THINGS THROUGH FOGGED UP WINDOWS TO PROVE IT TO YOU."
Aren't you guys all glad that i only sold you all out for a BMW? Twice. :woohoo:Basically the same thing though. Modern influencer culture has only two types of transaction, converting cash to exposure, and converting exposure back into cash.
I imagine you have to be a certain level of monetized youtuber to straight up ask for cash, but there is obviously a conversion rate of $->Exposure. Most of the lower echelons probably can't straight up ask for cash until they prove their star power.
That's like the shit position I guess, but there are never ending masses of people who buy products like this waiting to break into the lower echelons themselves.
You Brobandoned us for like 5 years, you don't get to be salty. :lol:Sold out for a fucking 3 series :lol:
