I haven't used the rock bug, but I'm not a fan of analog cabinet emulation except in a pinch.Thanks for jumping in, Brian!
Would using the Rock Bug at the end of my chain work for that?
Also, I know what you mean, but for the all the noobs who have no idea, could you explain what you mean by "impulse response based." They would appreciate it.
Impulse response is a way of doing it so it's more accurate sounding.
