    How accurate is Fractal's amp modeling?

    I agree on the 15.xx firmware update. It really made a leap forward in my humble opinion. If I may ask @FractalAudio Cliff, do you have any recommendations on resources to learn more about the inner workings of some of the more popular amplifiers? I am an electrical engineer working from home...

    Prayers for Nashville

    So some sicko detonated a bomb in an RV in downtown Nashville early this morning. No one killed thank goodness. Lot of damage. Saw a guy on the news who lost his home and all his guitars and equipment in the blast, his means of making a living. Keep the residents in your thoughts and prayers.

    5153 model

    Try adding a pitch block set to dual detune with offsets at +12 and -12 with one panned hard left and the other panned hard right. Place it between the amp and cab blocks. It will give you the "Balance" sound.
