    Pitch Block - Like a Stone solo (Rage Against the Machine)

    Sell me on dual amps

    Sell me on dual amps

    Besides all reasons above (which I second), the simplest reason is that you can have 8 amps in one preset as opposed to 4, which is cool because you can have 1 preset to range from jazz to metal and everything in between, but its even more useful because you can load 8 amps - or 8 of the same...

    Vox Ac30 Midrange

    As far as the wight switch, not sure what that does, but usually "weight" refers to the lows / low mids, it could either be some sort of "deep switch" or tone shift.

    Vox Ac30 Midrange

    As far as the mids, technically speaking a stock ac30 doesn’t have a mid knob, but the mids are heavily affected by the way you set bass and treble. Also, the volume of the normal channel affects the treble boost channel to some extent, but I never liked what it does, it adds some sort of...

    AF3 into Vox AC15 Amp

    It's the way my presets are routed. I split the signal after the fx chain before the amp block on 2 parallel paths, one path goes to amp / cab sims and to output 1 L&R, the other path goes into an fxl block to output 2 L. This way you can either use amp sims using output1, a real amp using...

    AF3 into Vox AC15 Amp

    Like @Toopy14 said, that's correct, use output 2 L straight into a real amp (amp / cab sims are only routed to output1). This way you're sending the fx chain to a real amp. You might need to adjust some fx level based on your amp settings, as the levels in my presets rely on the amp sim at edge...
