    I decided to make a mix comparing different types of tones to hear the difference between using a real amplifier head, VST Plug-ins, and Digital Simulators. Just wanted to put a video of the mix showing the different characteristics of each type, but all of them have their own unique feel in the mix.

    Who do you think won?! Let us know!

    Gear Used for Analog Chain:-
    TS9 (Keeley modified), Boss NS-2, MI-Effects Compressor
    Blackstar HT20 head
    Two Notes Torpedo LIVE


    Gear Used for Plug-Ins:-
    MBox Pro
    Pro Tools 8
    Waves GTR3.5

    Gear Used for Digital Chain:-
    Furman PL-Pro
    Line 6 POD HDPro

    All the tones had a slight EQ boost around 3dB between 1 - 2KHz.

    I dislike the HT series quite a bit, and even here I think it sounds pretty damn good. :agreed:
