This is really much ado about nothing. The point was you're tweaking high gain amp sims to obtain a clean overdriven tone,
and would be better off with a Sim more suited to that sound.

ABG's web site clearly states.... "Series60 is for "Death Metal" and the C15 "don't play Jazz, or even classic rock"

While there are many 'tricks', it would be more logical to start with the right tone rather than to try polishing a turd, or slapping lipstick on a pig...

Btw, Ted I do hope you won't be giving me another "shit kicking" ...

No shit kicking here PRS - just information.

I'm basing it on trials of the said software

IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT A WEB SITE CLEARLY STATES - more fool you!

if you had followed some of the threads you would know I commented at the time his marketing blurb was likely to mislead people into thinking his plugs were only good for Metal - when they have vastly more potential than that!

When Ken refers to a shit kicking I gave him, I don't need any of this talk.

To my knowledge I have never done such a thing.

Anything I have said was meant to help - if you take it the wrong way don't blame me

Guys...

Lighten up...Please...

PRS I am sure you meant no disrespect, and, I'm sure you didn't either Ted...Sometimes we read stuff in these forums and it just comes across wrong...

I was joking when I said shit kicking...Meant to bring a smile...But, I guess no one got my humor, sorry about that...

I got it! (The bad thing is that I haven't got a fair sense of humour.)
Thinking abot what kind of place this is: people from all over the globe under many different conditions ( medical and smokewise etc.) we are not doing all that bad anyway.

Humble greatings Lade

P.S.
TedWood the santana-chain you made is great. Wether it's like the man himself or not I couldn't tell, but it really sounds allright when I'm plaing trough it. Thanks!

( I'm not comparing myself to him. It just makes me feel good.)

So what you are saying is the OP made good points but the replies were hijacks, pointless attacks or devoid of anything meaningful?

No further comment needed then

Here's the OP so you can start again

I find Amp Sims much too harsh in tone when driven. More than capable of the heaviest of heavy metal, or the cleanest of cleans such as Yes. But not capable of those 'in-between' tones. I'm wondering what others have found, or is it just my inability to coax these tones out ?

My set up is usually Amp Sim > LeCab. Along with a delay and maybe a few others.
