I really think that digital modelling has it`s rightful place in recording. And this thread should not be the place to compare modelling vs. analogue. In fact I bought a Spark modeller and enjoyed it during the last couple of weeks. It is something that gives you a simulation of a posh produced guitar-tone that you know from records. In fact you get tones that are a thousand dollars worth at the price of a stomp-box. Because of the lock-down my friends and I have not played for nearly 8 months. So practising at home at bedroom-levels was the only option. The Spark came handy and got me some relieve. But yesterday I went to our abandomed and empty rehearsal space because of having the urge to play really loud and letting off some steam. I plugged a Strat into a Crybaby and my trusty old Reußenzehn amp and let my pantlegs flap in front of two 4x12s. What a joy. Sparks flying around ....overtones blooming ....feedback like Uncle Ted. The sheer randomness of tones happening by pure accident grabbed me and made me feel totally high. Frank almighty. What a joy. I will do it again next weekend. So should you. It is therapy.
