Sounds and Feels Better to me! Thanks!!
The biggest improvements seem to be to mid gain amps/settings. For example, I didn't notice much change in my 'go to' BE patches, but on my Shiva and Smallbox patches, single notes are clearer and more pleasant. I'd having a hard time describing what I'm hearing on those, but I like it.Which ones have you noticed changed the most ?
It might depend on what the settings are on the amp? Any thoughts! I'll have to wait till tomorrow to try it out!Which ones have you noticed changed the most ? ElectricPhase said: I'm having fun flipping between 1.01 and 1.03 on the global menu with different amps to see how much they've improved. It doesn't make a difference for all of them, but when it does....!!!!!!
Tube amps are amazing in some ways. The just naturally do the right things. One of these things is that the grids sort of "self-align" so that the distortion stays on the edge. You can tell when a modeler isn't modeling this right as you will get fizzy decay (some people erroneously call this "crossover distortion") and flubby bass. If you can't boost treble without it getting harsh then it's not modeling the grids properly. If you need to put a shelving EQ to roll off some bass before the model then it's not modeling properly. With this latest version of Quantum you can put an EQ after the amp or cab and crank the highs as much as you want without it getting harsh and causing ear fatigue.The biggest improvements seem to be to mid gain amps/settings.

Interesting release notes; I'll be sure to upgrade in the next couple of days...I see you've been paying a lot of attention to the cathode follower in the last few firmware updates. A lot of gold to be mined there it would appear...work on the grid conduction behavior on the triodes and power tubes seems to be keeping you busy too. Most excellent...Improved triode grid conduction model. This improves edge-of-breakup tones as it keeps the distortion on the edge of breakup more and improves high-gain tones as it tightens up the bass. Also improves feel and dynamic response.
Improved cathode follower model. This improves harmonic accuracy yielding less “glare”, more detailed treble (more “chime”) and more bite. The previous cathode follower model can be selected from the Global menu by choosing a Modeling Version other than 1.03.
