FWIW, here are some recordings using the cleanest possible setting on the MetroPlex's blue channel.
TL;DR: If you hit the strings at all, it's gonna distort a lot even at the lowest possible gain settings.
All tracks recorded with a PRS Modern Eagle V in single coil mode
Blues chord vamp, heavy touch
0:00 - 0:06 (Bridge Position)
0:06 - 11:30 (#2 Position)
11:30 - 16:56 (Middle Position)
16:56 - 21:85 (#4 Position)
21:85 - 30:57 (Neck Position)
Single note lines, very soft touch
30:57 - 48:11 (#2 Position)
48:11 - 1:01:29 (Neck Position)
As you can hear, I could not get traditional Marshall plexi-style cleans out of this unit, regardless of how much I tried to f with it. Rolling the volume back doesn't really help much as it's simply a British gain machine, and a great one at that. If you're looking for glassy Plexi cleans with headroom, look elsewhere. If you're looking for AC/DC rhythms or Gary Moore lead tones, it's perfect.
