    I agree Chuck P. - I have always regarded threads about amp in the room as a way to replicate (to the best of our ability) the feel/sound of a guitar cab being in the room with you. The new AITR conversations (in my brain) are more of Amp in 'a' room...and not Amp in 'the' room (that has been...

    A profile is a capture of an amp at it's current settings. Whether or not you like that way that amp was set when it was profiled, is another question and topic. This is why all the commercial profile makers sell profiles of the amp with the knobs in all 'knob configurations'. Profile with...
