    Wait....what does that mean exactly? You mean the power amp sim on WOS is better to use with the EVH preamp out?

    No, i haven't use the wall of sound still yet

    What i said is that the captor is superior than the preamp out on the EVH

    Yes, it does sound fatter. That's because the power section is colouring the signal. I tried experimenting with the preamp out while on the captor load box along with some Ownhammer IR's and oooohhhh boyyy!!!

    Anybody try the attenuation with a Dual Rec yet? Id like to use this with my 5153 and my 2 Channel Dual Rec, but I would use the attenuation feature more than the WOS at first, until I get my computer updated.

    I have the 5153 50 watt and the attenuation does well.

    I have the Captor now and have used it quite a bit with my dual rec, 5153, and OR15. The attenuation works really well on them, but it does make the lower wattage OR15 sound more fizzy. With the Mesa and the EVH, its perfect, and those are the two I wanted it for. The WOS is awesome, and this is what I use more than anything right now, which is contrary to what I was thinking I would use more. All in all, its a great value to try out IRs and see if they are for you and tame your amps. I love every aspect of it, and highly recommend anyone who is on the fence to just go for it.

    So just looking at the attenuation feature only, is it worth it in your opinion? Does it sound better with your amp at higher volumes attenuated then just setting the volume down low when using a real cab?

    The 50 Watt 5153's master volume works really well. If I had only that amp, using only the attenuation from the Captor, I don't think its really necessary for the red channel. I do think it works a bit better when your pushing the blue channel for a more Marshall-like tone.
