    Fractal Forum Meetup this Monday night (2/15) in NYC

    Get a nice venue and I'll bring a Sony FS7 and an A7SII to film the proceedings. I don't have a set of lights to bring with me, so if anyone has any and can bring them that would be awesome. If you need to collect money for renting a venue I would be more than happy to chip in.

    Why can't 'amp in the room' feel be modelled?

    My take on it is that the AFX models the signal chain just fine, it's the physical aspect that is lagging. It's easier to twiddle bits and make them do what we want them to do. It's a lot harder to take a static physical design like a loudspeaker and make it behave other than how it was designed...
