    So we already have endless models of the usual suspects to choose from - 5150, Recto, SLO, VH4, JCM800 etc - What about amps that as of now remain in the analog wilderness?

    VHT Pitbull:
    Line 6? Fractal? Neural? C'mon already, it's only one of the best amps ever made! It's borderline criminal that this amp is yet to be modelled.

    Hiwatt Super-Hi 50:
    This amp interests me more than some of Fortin's other creations. Rarely seen, heard or spoken of so unlikely we'll see a model of it anytime soon but one can hope.

    Mesa Boogie Quad Preamp:
    The one amp I regret selling, the weight in the low end is out of this world but tight and fast. I believe Neural QC has captures of this (through a poweramp) but need a model as there a million potential settings and it benefits from precise tweaking.

    Ceriatone Chupacabra / Yeti:
    Killer amps that I'd greatly appreciate in digital form.

    Definitely the Pittbull. It's really cool that Steve signed off on the Fractal model of the Deliverance, but an Ultra Lead model would be the perfect follow-up to that :idea:

    I think it’d be cooler to see guys like Steve Fryette and Reinhold Bogner design an exclusively digital specific amp from scratch.

    Totally agree on the Pittbull UL. I was even hoping Mooer would release a Microamp version. Hoping Neural DSP and Fryette will work something out like Fortin did.

    I'd want to see..
    • Fryette Pittbull Ultra Lead
    • Vamp Amps - Vintage rock amp made famous by T Rex-Marc Bolan
    • Sunn Model T
    • Orange OR80
    • Orange Thunderverb 200
    • Matamp - Any
    • Laney Klipp
    • Laney Supergroup

    THIS!

    I forgot about the SSS. I've slightly played around in the III swapping the tone stack from the Twin to the SVT, but would still like an actual model.

    The only ones that are truly underrepresented are VHT/Fryette and the British doom amps like Matamp. Fractal models the Deliverance 60W but that's literally the only Fryette model found in anything afaik.

    Everything else is really just variations of what already exists in these things and thus serves no place IMO.

    The way I see it, if it does not add anything unique tonewise then it's not worth modeling "just to have it". A lot of amps are derivatives of others and their main draw is their feature sets, which are largely irrelevant for modelers when you can just swap a model anytime you want. I don't need my Bogner or Victory modeled because I can use any of the various Fender, Marshall and Vox models to get those sounds.
