9mileskid is our very own Brutusbuck!! Quite the Gdec tweaker he is, I have used his patches to develop my own for my guitars/pickups (he uses a custom Carvin- HSH). My "1969" patch is actually a vox model all tweaked out, go figure. Out of all those amp models to choose from, Jerry can live in many different amps I can see, if you have the time to mess with it.
I really enjoy it to jam and practice mostly. It makes recording a breeze to catch ideas, it took less than 20 min to make that clip and post it!! I know this isn't for everyone, but it is nice if you live in an area where dead head musicians are hard to find. I have been totally lazy and not posted much on the Fuse site (Jboy). I always wanted to develop some recorded practice loops to jam to and share also, plus whole songs which is possible too. I need a drum solution though... would love to get some of your(JKSTRAW) acoustic chord progressions and get them on the amp to practice my acoustic duo gig I've been messing with, it will play wav or MP3, I have been using audaicty.
Imagine virtual jamming! Playing with a dude in Canada from Mississippi! form a virtual dead band that gigs online... hmmmm....
I do know now it is not the best replacement for my twin/mac setup, I have stopped trying to use it to gig, don't get me wrong, it was OK, but could never get the loud tone to sound authentic enough like the real deal. It sounds like it needs a special cab simulator or something like that, even though it has a few timbres to choose from. I wish it would take outside IR files from an axeFX or they had IR downloads for speaker cabs on the fender site. That would do the trick I think for DI and gigging. Thanks for sharing, JB
