This does so like an amp. The rock tones you can get out of this are great. I also dig the clean amp's also. You can really dial in a great sound and it has a very authentic sound. A few omissions. From what I can see there are only 4 slots to save your own presets and no presets built in. That said this is a totally different paradigm than say Bias but it would be nice to save your own presets. No reverb. This was a big letdown. The delay is decent but I'd likely use a different plug for that. Stand alone would be a good idea too. Beyond that this is made by the Nembrini guy and he really makes some great stuff on ios.
A lot of different tones in a single plugin! I personally like most the two Jazz amps for cleaner tones and the Metal 666 for the heavier ones, because it has it's own, very good tone and is no copy of some real amp. Combined with the Shape- and Shred-controls plus the Equalizer you get a lot excellent high-gain sounds. The other amps also sound very good, I normally am not such a big fan of a JCM800, but I must admit, this simulation sounds much better than my original Silver Jubilee 2554 ever did. The Rect-O-Verb also does a good job, for me sonically somewhere between a Mk. II and a Rectifier. The Engl channels (apart from the Jazz) tend to sound a little bit too sharp for my taste, but this issue I also had with the real preamp. So this also sounds very authentically. Generally you get very good, very authentic sounding and - maybe even more important - also reacting and behaving tube amp tones out of this plugin.
I love it. I do wish they had a stand-alone version though.
You've done it on purpose right?
Brainworks make quality amp sims and by now everyone knows that. I used most of them and I know they are good. However one of the few things I'm not very happy with is the fact they don't have dedicated Marshall type sims. I really liked the previous version (bx_rockrack pro) but its cabinet IRs were not very easy to use. This newer version (V3) sounds more friendly, generic so to speak, easier to play but to me it feels less authentic. So when I need 800 type of sound I end up using previous version 800 amp and V3 version cabinet - sometimes ENGL 765 cabinets. (Or other sims/IRs I don't mention here) Other thing is they say they made IRs using NEVE VXS72 and they surely sound good but sometimes I need more transient rich "transformerless" type of sounds. Especially for soloing. In anyway if they make some Marshall dedicated sims I will really appreciate.

I love it
The only thing I don't like is that the delay won't reproduce enough highs. There should be an option for a hi-fi delay for more variety. The lo-fi is great for some things, perfect for Hadley Hockensmith type leads (listen to Pilgrims Progression by Koinonia for an example) but not all things. I want singing delays for satch/vai type leads.
Habe meistens Guitar Rig benutzt. Komme aber schneller mit diesen Plugin zu meinen Guitar- Sound ohne reamping nur aus dem DI Signal

Best amp sim on the market. Sounds really inspiring. And the different irs are just amazing.
