Wish Boss AC-3

I'd like to see Fractal take a crack at modelling the Boss AC-3 acoustic simulator. I have a Helix that hasn't been out of the case since I bought my Axe 2 XL+ (I have a pair of Axe 3's now...), that I'm finally getting around to selling, and I figured I'd load in the latest firmware before I advertised it. I was several firmware versions behind, so I'm not sure when it was added, but there's an AC-3 model in there now, and it's not too bad (as acoustic sims go...). I would even go as far as to say it's marginally better than the actual AC-3 (I have one). After hearing that, I'm confident Cliff and crew could knock it out of the park.

I have some half decent acoustic sim patches that I'm using (a mix if ideas I picked up from several folks on this forum), but I'm sure if there was a model in there, it'd save a good bit of DSP horsepower over what I'm doing in my patches. In particular, I use the tube pre in my patches. I'd love to free up that amp block.

That firmware is version 3 for the Helix that just came out a week ago with that acoustic sim in it. I very seldom use my Helix, but I saw the new firmware and was curious what it sounded like. The acoustic sim is great in my opinion. That would be a great addition to my Axe 3 and FM3. Cliff is a smart man and he keeps up with what the competition is doing. I hope he picks up on this.
