That was kind of my point. I think we've nailed the digital 5150 for "modern metal" and "djent" and "the brootz" at this point, but we're pretty far IMO from tones that have a little more... nuance? It's great if that's the sound you're going for, but the sound we've reached with free-level VSTs is kind of a one-or-two-trick pony. And it's not very close to "my sound" at all. My comment was mostly addressing the "replace it all for freeeee!" sentiment anyway. I'm sure a $1500+ piece of modelling gear is going to sound pretty good at this point. I'd still never trade in my tube amps for an AxeFX though. In a recording scenario I'd be happy to have both, but in a you-can-only-have-one scenario, I still stand by normal amps. That's given that I've never tried a Kemper in person, but I'm convinced so far that it's maybe the only gear that could change my mind. Kemper is easily a candidate for this thread.
