Like I say to my daughter as I glance at her phone/laptop: “If only there was an easy way to find out information about that...”Anthropology Professor at a poster day who has no idea what he’s looking at: “So how would you explain this to an 8th grader?”
Hardcore pre-med bio major: “I wouldn’t”
(actual conversation I witnessed)
Just tested it here and it sounds like a Trainwreck. They're very buzzy and fizzy because the last stage is biased really cold. I think he did this to reduce the blocking distortion of the phase inverter when all he really had to do was put a resistor in series with the PI grid to reduce the bias excursion.Thanks for the continuous updates and refinements!
Possible bug... The Trainwreck Express has been making a bizarre sound since updating. It's like an electronic fizz sound. Will look into it more tomorrow.
There was a time when that's how it went. But @FractalAudio has been acquiring IRL versions of everything in the box over the years. That loft has got to be looking pretty amazing now.Yeah. Tho otherwise it would be kinda BS, going off of memory or circuit diagrams alone.
probably not possible to implement due to everything that's going on under the hood, but wouldn't it be cool to have an "ideal" and "authentic" switch with the tube types that either normalizes everything or keeps it exactly like it would be on a real amp (even on the verge of destruction) and then "fixable" with the exposed parameters.I'm probably not qualified except to say that different tube characteristics mean different tone/feel/clipping, but not as much as in a real amp (which doesn't auto-adjust the transformer).
Good luck. When I was playing with FW10.00 Beta #1, it was not until I played a B on the 3rd string while using the neck pickup that it farted (it didn't fart with the bridge pickup); and it was at random. That took a while to discoverGreat! I have a show in 2 hours ... perfect time to install! Woohoooooo!
That was actually a bug in the code which has been fixed. Should be good now.Good luck.

Kemper Tech process is incredible, but now datedNot trying to drag this into a Kemper conversation but the concept of what Kemper does has always intrigued me. It is a virtual possibility of limitless amps and drive/amp combinations. That being said, Kemper definitely lacks the insane motivation we are now used to seeing for continual improvement. This is definitely the ride you want to be on in amp modeling.
