    CL is brutal around here(Boston area),what seems like a reasonable price will sit for months.It's great if you're a buyer but trying to sell something is discouraging.

    Thnx
    What i wanted to do here was capture the dynamics and nuances so every detail would be clear. It was played in one take without touching a button or even changing pickups. And it's on the edge of breaking loose but still clear enough to play subtle and have the degree of attack make the difference. The UK30 CL sim has a nice Brian May like ringing tone to it which you might have noticed in the quieter sections like the arpeggios at the very end which has no overdriven sound at all. Anyways the GE200 does let me play with dynamics and the details are there to have all the subleties in my playing get through.

    Amazing what people consider "clean tones with a hint of breakup" these days LOL! To me that was pretty much a low to mid gain tone.

    The amp modeling lacked bloom and transient response which would be present in a low to mid-gain tone with real tubes, though it did clean up ok with lighter picking which isn't really a hard thing to do with DSP these days. I guess Henky liked the basic feel of the Yellow Comp/Tube Driver good enough?

    Why doesn't someone just do some dry clips of the amp + cab modeling alone, or with a touch of short room reverb so we can all really hear it sans overdubs etc?

    Sounds like a inexpensive modeler to me, similar to the others in it's price range (though with a IR Loader), but possibly excepting the AFB (anyone a+b it with a AFB)?

    Lists for $300, and someone was saying they've seen them for $150, can't go wrong really if you're in the market for a inexpensive modeler...

    What is a tube sim doing in the cab sim?

    Yeah, but normally that's in the amp block?

    Anyone try it with a external preamp?

    I have not yet but will buy one soon. I have seen this used with pedals to give greater results than cab IRs only.

    Yes of course, but the tube power amp sim is typically part of the amp block with additional parameters not shown here (depth, presence, volume, tube type etc), not a single parameter in the cab block.

    This tube power amp sim is likely from the RADAR if indeed it actually does something related to tube power amp modeling, and a welcome development etc, but implemented in a strange way as now you can use your tube power amp sim with the amp block's tube power amp sim, assuming of course that the GE200's amp modeling has a tube power amp sim in it's various amp blocks, though maybe it doesn't and their amp blocks are just the little preamp pedals sans tube power amp sim?

    Who cares as long as it sounds decent LOL?

    This was posted on another forum and I thought it sounded good especially since it seems it’s the same patch, just volume knob manipulation:

    Exactly, there are no power amps as of right now, this is a preamp modeler.

    Got mine.

    NEEDS update as said. Noise gates didnt even function properly until I did it.


    It takes a bit of effort to dial in exactly to match the micro because the parameters are different. Through my tube power amp I could dial them similar enough to find them the same quality. Maybe the sample rates are different? , I couldn’t tell in tone or feel while scrutinizing. Ymmv.

    The ge-200 has huge output, no low volumes, can pummel power amp input.

    The onboard IR are practically useless. I loaded celestion IR and it became infinitely better DI.

    The effects sounds nice to me. Not “lush” like strymon, more neutral but not entirely cold or sterile either.

    The drive pedals really surprised me, seems just as good as the preamp models.

    Been playing through an aux in of a tiny bookshelf radio today and surprisingly it is very satisfying.

    Oh, there is one SHARC 21849 inside it.

    Lethal dose of Mooer addiction I suppose.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    In that case, assuming the forthcoming tube power amp sims are decent, then there should be some nice improvement coming as well.

    Oh and the presets suck.

    Not because they highlight the capabilites or wacky effects but because there are odd/extreme EQ setups, for example, +6DB@250hz that result in weird or bad sounds.

    I would suspect the preset writers individual gear/setups are to blame.

    He is over on the Boss forum pedaling the GE200.
