I was pleasantly surprised with all of Plugin-Alliance's amp simulations. I own a Line 6 Helix and the tones in these plugins are much better. They sound much more like an amp. Nice work!!!

Probably one of the most authentic amp sims. They way it react to your playing is outstanding. Really nice. They also did a good job emulating the volume break-ups. You can't go wrong, feels like this is an amp you need in your collection no matter what style you like or prefer.
After the year of using it, I have to say DS-40 is the best mid-gain/crunch ampsim plug today (2020). But, I use third-party IR - OwnHammer's - they are much better, then IRs in the plug (( Buxom - is the best clean/low-gain ampsim plug too))
Great for the non-metal PA users
I was looking for an amp sim that could do really nice clean to crunchy rock/funk type guitar sounds. Most of the PA amp sims seem to be focused on metal, but this one really shines through with the clean and crunchy tones. It was exactly what I was looking for.
I think I can get along with this one.
PA amp sims are good but I'm picky. Each amp has its personality and oftentimes they are not my style. Wish we had more amps to choose. So far this one fits my style most. Very best of traditional rock things yet somewhat modern. This one is gonna be a vital part of my in-the-box rig. Thanks PA!!

Best amp sim so far. Responsive, Fender-esque cleans and of course the legacy tones of Jim Marshall - it comes all together in the Friedman DS-40.
Incredible sound. No other words needed.
The most realistic amp sim I've tried yet. Feels like the real thing, cleans up like the real thing...sounds glorious! Hats off to the devs on this one...You guys knocked it out of the park!!!

as a Mega sub, I just love P.A. new plugin day's, it's the best! and being a guitarist/songwriter: new amp sims and FRIEDMAN amps none the less. What did I win the lottery:)... thanx P.A. from Hollywood, CA
