Preface:
I'm 150% satisfied with everything in the AxeFX III if this never gets included.

Wish:
Would be nice to get this combo amp in the AxeFX III. Fender cleans with a (slight) Vox-ish breakup.

Schematic:
I'm no engineer, but found what look to be legitimate schematics here.

Loved my Prosonic ... Only irk was loud popping noise when switching channels via the footswitch. With a virtual amp in the AxeFx that would be a non-issue. Bring it on.

Looking at the schematic it definitely has it's own thing. Plenty of gain. Not sure about the clean channel though. Looks like it would sound a bit anemic.

I would've put a capacitor between RLY1 and V2A. That would probably stop the popping when switching channels.

No longer have the amp.. had an "authorized " Fender amp repair done to correct "popping" . Corrected it somewhat but was still troublesome.

The cascading gain and drippy spring reverb made that amp a fire-breather. When ever I turned it up no one could believe it was a Fender. Like mentioned , the clean channel was weak compared to other Fender models. Used it extensively in the late 90's. Would be a real throw back to have it in the AxeFx..... Thanks for checking it out Cliff :)

I had a Prosonic for a while. The Gain 2 was SO HOT that it took just a tad to bring the unit to high gain levels. Very un-Fender!
But it had a BIG sound and I loved it. Mostly a 2-trick pony though so did not work well for my job. But it would be a nice, unusual addition.

Good choice of mentors \m/ Beyond the cue from your avatar; I think Jabs was really the only one I ever knew that used the Prosonics.
