Effects, cabinets and more

There are a total of 8 speaker emulations, which seem to be based on impulse responses and are each virtually removed with two out of eight microphones. In addition, two own IRs can be used at a time. The microphones can be freely placed in virtual space and additionally adapted with a 4-band EQ.

And nothing is neglected when it comes to effect pedals: 4 pre-amp-FX and 3 post-amp-FX are available and can carry the sound of the amplifiers in completely different directions. Also included are a noise gate, pitch shifter (polyphonic) and tuner.

    “Mail order Twin” is a Silvertone Twin Twelve not a fender Twin. Also, did Fender ever make a 35w Twin? ‘Cuz I’d check that out.
