Would you want it?
No, I'd rather have the amps.
the main question is not if I want, is how much. for a reasonable price I'd love it. if it's too expensive I'd rather buying amps.
The cost of the unit would be that you could no longer use the actual tube amps.
no way. it's like "you may have a mutant woman that can change appearance of every woman on earth, but she's actually a man". I'd rather stick with one really good woman, that's actually a real woman.
Just stick a Kemper Profiler in a Compactor and “Walla !!”
Kemper Stage floor unit would be more practical.
The tone and response of every amp ever made perfectly captured in a stomp box size enclosure.
...but what would you play it through ???
Only if the stomp box was the size of a large studio room.
NO , because I quite enjoy the thrill of the hunt to good tone and playing and the challenge ,which has always fulfilled me ,more on some days than others . Half the fun is trying to stumble around with an idea in your head and then making music out of it that actually pleases my ears .
The mermaid- only half the smell
Mermaid of course. Shave the scales in that area and you are good. Fish have ther own oil lubrication.
To the OP, there is no real genie lamp.
Some of us only want a few great amps that represent the sounds we hear in our heads, not all of them.
And there are those who ignore women altogether and just go fishing.
No. The every thing in one box idea doesn't float with me because to be good at everything means you do not excel at anything, just a mediocre rendition of the amps that DID excel. I would rather have the amps.
I'm with you, I'd personally rather have a few pieces of premium gear vs having the world at the ready, which would be nice but also far too much of a distraction (well, for me lol) with the endless fiddling, sampling and experimenting while not focusing enough on what the gear was designed to do in the first place (make music). A few key pieces of nice, versatile stuff and some creative tweaking can get you a huge range of tones anyway, unique to you or even close enough to famous, known tones...then just let your playing do the talking, the listeners won't mind, promise that.
No it’s nothing like that, which is why I posted this. Amps are boxes with wires in them. They aren’t “organic” but damn amp guys love using that term when describing them lol.
I guess my point is that while we all love to talk about tone, a lot of us get a lot more excited about the shopping and collecting part of the hobby than we might like to admit.
the main point of my comment is the use following phrase "The cost of the unit would be that you could no longer use the actual tube amps."
Forever?? no fucking way.
I love modelers, I've been using them for 20 years. They've come a long way and I love it, but as my main and only tools... not a chance.
It's like "would you rather been driving the car of your dreams for life or a tesla?" I'd rather be driving porsches for life... I can go to the super market, to the track, have fun and also it looks really good. it's the same with a nice tube amp, clean, cruch, drive, high gain, practice, gigs and also it looks good.
