    Was not the top of my list to be the next plugin as far as guesses. However, it’s one Id have wanted to see.

    Really like the effects section in this one, amps and cabs sound awesome, what else you need. Not buying it because I already have Nolly & Nameless, and I got Helix LT one and a half months ago.

    Just downloaded the trial. Sounds pretty good to me and you get a lot throw in. I still prefer the STL Amphub though as it's just as good as Neurals plugins but at a more affordable price.

    Not a fan of Gojira, and Joe Duplantier afaik uses 5150iii Stealth so it is a big eh for me. At this point all you really need is maybe Nolly, your choice of Fortin, and maybe Cory Wong/Plini for all your guitar tone need. I don't ever think people were clamoring for Gojira tone.

    I'd pay good money for Archetype Merrow though. As long as that is a full sim of the Revv Generator.

    I love Gojira. Hate 5150s. I’m curious what the other sims are based on. I have Nolly and Abasi. Cory Wong and the Omega are probably the most likely other purchases. Doesn’t change my curiosity.

    Definitely didn't except this. The teaser pics they posted on IG kinda looked like an EVH amp but I'm always up for an Archetype because that means more shit to mess around with instead of the "Suites" that only come with one amp.

    As a sidenote, did anyone else on Neural's mailing list get an email? I didn't which is weird because I can swear I'm on their list.

    I do. To me it doesn't sound very good. Line 6 Revv Red and Purple is better. Then again, I'm forking out for a Revv half stack so that doesn't really matter lmao

    Arent' REVV's red channel just another shade of similar high gain flavor as red in 5153 :shrug:

    As far as description goes Revv described the Red channel as "Very saturated with a low mid focus & is fat & easy to play". The Red channel in 5153 is pretty fucking fat, but it is also pretty tight and aggressive with somewhat of a hi mid attack so I don't think it is the same per se.

    not really. I own a Revv and I've played a bunch of 5153 amps (og, el34 and 100w og). The revv red channel can get tighter and drier than the red channel on a 5153 with a lot more useable gain imo. It also starts out a lot leaner with everything at noon and the depth/presence knobs are much more subtle. The mid switches also give you a lot more versatility so it's not just straight low mid emphasis.
    Try running the red channel on a 5153 above like 10'0 clock lol. The 5150 series has always had absurd amounts of gain (to its detriment imo).

    Here's me playing some Gojira riffs with my 100p. check out around 2:50

    I did not see this one coming.

    It sounds really good in Ola's video. These archetype plug-ins are great for an all-in one bundle and this might be the best one yet with all the effects.

    Does the whammy have a pitch drop effect like a whammy dive? Skimming through Ola's video I didn't hear it when he was using it.

    I have just tried this new Gojira plugin and Revv amps on my Helix. And a real 6505... But yes, sweet spot with gain is around 3-4 with 5150, and Revvs have it around 4-5.

    I really expected an Archetype: Rabea Massaad based on their latest media activity... But hey! It's all good. Now we have ANOTHER 5150 sim! I've been waiting for one for ages! :rofl:

    Funny how Neural DSP amp GUIs are purposely mismatched to what the amps really are. The obvious 5150 amp is actually the clean channel. Same thing they did with Plini, showing you an amp with a truckload of tubes that actually is a solid state amp :lol:

    Listening to Olaa demo, and tbh it's the best tone he's gotten in awhile.

    Is the Plini clean based on a JC120? That may be my favorite clean amp ever.
