    What do "live v studio ratio", "enablement", "literality" and "diffusion / encounter measure" mean?

    According to numerical analysis I've performed on the GT-100 materials available on the internet so far, I conclude with p=0.007 that it will have Enablement between 77.612% to 88.937%, thus beating the market's best.

    Ditto. Clarification of the terminology will go a long way to letting others understand what it is you are trying to tell us.

    Ditto again. I'd be interested in what instrument can give you these rating to within a half a percent?

    AlabamaTick is a new member, so let's cut him a little slack here... shall we?

    That said, if we can't get a definition of terms and a description of methodology before halftime we will all come to your house and TP it... no pressure... really...

    One man's opinion without context, background or explanation is meaningless.

    "Feel"

    Can't wait to see the scientific, objective, repeatable measurement for that. Especially down to the .5%....

    The HD500 sure didn't seem .5% feelier than the Axe II when I played it. You'd think that would have stuck out like a sore thumb.

    Yeah, it was more like .045% I thought... MAYBE...

    So, did this guy actually do a comparison ya think? Or is he "Taxman" and is he going to put up a thread called "the big four of modelers" tomorrow...?

    I just tested the real thing and all of my numbers were much lower. Tubes suck.
