[Cab block] Bass, middle and treble of the virtual mic preamp

Clive

Hi,

Is it possible to reproduce the behavior of the bass, middle and treble knobs of the virtual mic preamp by using a filter, a PEQ or a GEQ ? The coloration given by these three knobs is so cool that I would like to be able to use them without having to use a Cab block.

Thanks.

Thank you for the information. I Thought it was a unique EQ

Then, is it correct to assume that the type of Preamp that we select (Fet, Tape, Tube... Economy/HighQ) only affects the controls of Drive and Saturation, not the tone controls?
good info...thanks for asking the question!

Those are the equalization time constants.
I just looked it up somewhat quickly, spent about 15 minutes or so on a few different sites reading about how this applies to what I should be hearing between the three & I honestly got nowhere. But that’s okay. Not that I didn’t take anything away, just not how it directly applies. What I did get out of it was yet again even more newfound respect for you Cliff. That’s a whole little bit of history & math & calculations in that little corner of the box. Impressive.

One last question Cliff : are these three parameters applied before or after the saturation/drive parameters of the virtual mic preamp ? Maybe you already answered this before but I can't find the thread.

Thanks again.
