TOPIC: AC30 Please

AC30 Please 8 years 11 months ago #5648

I would love you to do a Vox AC15/30.

Not the new ones but an original AC15 as used by Hank,with an EF86 emulation.

Also I think a Tuner would go down quite well,you know it makes sense.

Thanks

Alan

I'd like a Vox "family" amp the way the wayfarer is a fender "family" amp and the stealer is a marshall "family" amp.

What i mean is I'd like a single amp sim that via various modes and switches can do everything from a vox ac15/30 to a matchless or badcat to a trainwreck liverpool. They are all built on the vox cicuit with various tweaks. Give us access to the tweaks and we can have'em all at our fingertips.

Uh oh, not the dreaded tuner request again - oh the responses you are going to get!

FWIW, a Vox family amp would be highest on my wish list.

Someone actually asked me what I thought this product was missing and my response was "Vox, preferably an AC-30." I also said "a tuner and more effects" but if resources are limited I'd much rather have the Vox amp.

I think an amp that is in the Vox family would be great. I think a Vox/matchless/trainwreck combo would be killer.

My sentiments exactly AC15 / 30 :thumbs up: ( All Hail Hank ) ..., and also the tuner ..., wheres the tuner ?

My Vox AC15 - HW151X (Handwired with the blue alnico speaker) ..., sounds really close to hanks ac15 , but also has a great hot/overdrive switch on it with a killer tone , which adds for more versatility , and this amps sounds much , much sweeter than any other AC15 models you commonly see getting around (incl the TV model) ..., worth mentioning is its master volume bypass switch is great too.

+1 on anything Vox; heck, I'd gladly settle for a Super Beatle model!

YESSSSSSS. I'm WAITING SO MUCH for a VOX AC30 (with Topboost channel) emulation(or even a VOX AC15 or a VOX AC4 blue emulation) !!!
I'd like to get that crunchy tone with sweet mids and with a good dynamic response such as the one tha The Edge gets (U2).
Till now, I've been using The Duke to emulate that kind of tone. I set the Clean channel on with the Boost on and the gain setted at around 3. With this setting, the crunch is just OK (not enough drive and a bit muddy), so I use a VST Booster (AXP Charbooster) before The Duke amp. It can boost the amp and it can add some harmonics. I also use some tube emulator before this VST booster (Nick Crowe Tubedriver) which seems to improve the dynamics response (to ntone seems to be more organic and more sensitive to the dynamic of my playing).
That's the way I emulate the crunchy VOXAC30 tone. Not sure adding VSTs like that is a good thing to do but I couldn't get that powerfull, thick but well defined and subtile crunchy tone with The Duke amp alone.
I tried to use The Duke alone without those 2 VSTs (the Booster and the tube driver). To do so, I used the overdrive channel but I couldn't get a well defined crunchy tone... It was a bit muddy and there was too much overdrive even with a little bit of gain.

Mike, do you think what I'm doing is good ? Could you give me some tips to emulate the gritty/crunchy VOXAC30 of The Edge with S-Gear alone ?

Finally, DO YOU plan to do a VOX AC 30 emulation ? Do you plan to emulate the Korg SDD-3000 preamp (that can be used as a booster) ? I'm a U2 fan and I would be so pleased to use that kind of emulations !!!!

Hi ZOLAIVE,

Isn't it the case that The Edge uses his delays between the AC30 preamp and poweramp in order to get a big warm saturated build-up with the delay repeats? I recall seeing a film where he was using a Memory Man in this way. It would be cool indeed if we could patch S-GEAR effects between the preamp and poweramp.

I don't have any particular recommendations about getting an AC30 tone from The Duke. I think it is a case or trying stuff out until you get close to what you are wanting to hear.

Absolutely plan to create a VOX inspired amp for S-GEAR - there has been so many requests for this that we can't possibly pass ;)

Cheers,
Mike

Great news!

I had been simulating a Vox by using the Matchless speaker option on S-Gear before the last major revision (which added the Custom '57). As many of you know, Matchless was a classy Vox imitator.

Either the Matchless speaker option has disappeared or I'm not looking in the right place for it.

Is it still included?

Do I ever... I'm a big fan of Mark Sampson. My Bad Cat (his design, an AC30-ish design) is one of my favorite amps. He and Matchless were one of the first to dive down this high-end amp rabbit hole, and I thank them for it.

It's there. It just has a new name: 2x12” Boutique Twin (M25s)
See User Manual p62 for a list of the cabinets with details.

Mike

Anything amp-related which includes the word "twin" seems like it should recall Twin Reverbs, not Vox/Matchless/Bad Cat, but I'm glad the emulation is still included!

I don't think Bad Cats have built-in tuners, either ;) .

Nah. Tuners go on the pedal board, or, as evolution would have it, in the software.

this is very good news indeed, thank you, Mike !
Without any doubt this will be the first credible EL84 "pseudo ClassA" emulation ITB.
Knowing you, I guess we can hope for a few little "tweak" options to cover the various preamp layouts associated with that type of anps ?

Re the delay, don't know about the Edge, but I used to own an SDD3000.
Sorry to bust a myth, but there's nothing in there you could not do better in S-Gear already.
Sure, the delays were fine and easy to dial in, but unlike e.g. the mojo of an Echoplex, all the SDD "added" to your signal was the slight degradation and not-so-subtle noise floor typical for the early digital age, granted, a bit less than many of its contemporaries, that's why many pros used it back then.
ymmv,

*** lol, a similar point could be made about a tuner.
just saying ... ;-)

There's a perfectly restored Echoplex with a brand new tape sitting ten feet away from me on top of a Marshall JTM30. At first, we were able to find some nice rhythm sounds using S-Gear, though we hadn't stumbled upon any inspiring lead sounds. Once we figured out how to get lead sounds using S-Gear, the Echoplex and the Marshall have been sitting there gathering dust.

The same happens when I come in the studio: most projects are done just by using S-Gear, with the in-built effects. The only pedal I use is a Cry Baby Wah Wah and when it's called for by the project's leader, a Zendrive.

HTH,
