Option to make interface 'bigger' .

It's pretty darned perfect - dont really need anything ;)

OK, maybe a classic Orange flavoured amp. :evil:

Hi Mike!

I'd like to see added a Bright switch (a la twinreverb) to both the Wayfarer and the Custom '57, and the possibility to use the tremolo with all the amps, not just the Wayfarer. This shouldn't be that difficult, am I right?

Hi, im a Sgear user from Germany. using it since 2016 almost exclusively.

Still i would like to have a VST thing, so i could drop a external vst between amp and cab or in front .

I Guess if there will be any new AMPs chances are high there will be a Vox-alike and a HIgh Gainer.

Since im not a Fan of the 5150 or the Mesa i would like to hear the Sgear version of an ENGL.

Using Lepous 456 right now and it suits my needs, but i know that Mikes version would be awesome :)

Hello!
Apologies if this has already been mentioned but a polyphonic multi-octave generator (à la POG2 from Electro-Harmonix) would seal the deal for me to purchase S-GEAR. I just finished demoing your product and all I need more from it is the multi-octave option.
All the best,

I recently had more time to use Two Notes Wall Of Sound. It has a specific control that makes all the difference when simulating a loud amplifier: The "overload" control, which simulates speaker saturation. From what I've seen, the UAD plugins also have this feature. It would be interesting to have this, together with a more complete eq, next to the S-gear's deconvolver.

After watching Glen Kuykendall playing with his Trainwreck, it reminded me of the awesome tones you can get just by controlling the guitar volume knob, in addition to an amp that can deliver those dynamics effectively.

One of the things I really wish an amp sim could do - assuming that we have a real speaker to react with the pickups - is to be able to generate those higher octave feedback / harmonics, in a similar way as Glen does it.

Mike: do you have in our pipeline any amp model that could somehow replicate this behavior?

If you have the right kind of amplification then I see no reason why you can't achieve acoustic coupling, and hence generate the sustain and feedback that we love from guitar amps. In practice it is not so easy to achieve. Studio monitors need to be big to generate enough low frequency energy and they usually don't couple as readily as a guitar speaker. Compression in the amp also plays an important part and this must be just right in the amp model.

There are some products out there which try to replicate feedback - my opinion is that synthesizing feedback and sustain will always fall very short. I'm preferring to focus on getting the dynamics of the amp modelling just right, then experiment with different monitoring solutions to generate authentic coupling between amp - speaker - guitar.

I like dirt boxes, and would of course like to see some added to SG3. TS's and Rat's are the ones I like most, but I also would be interested in whatever type of fuzz thing Mike could cook up.

I'd really like a Vox for the V3 ...
And a good Fuzz module !

Scuffham chime would be delicious. Fuzz would be icing on the cake. An overdrive block would make me sell my tube amp and cabinet.

I'm able to obtain controlled feedback with both S-Gear and Amplitube 4 when I play live all the time. Acoustic coupling is due to physics, not programming. All you need is enough gain in the first gain stage and enough output volume. Period. Having semi-hollow instruments helps to deliver it at acceptable loudness levels.

I remember seeing a fuzz box in a catalog that had a switch which would allow you to switch between Ge and Si diodes, and even allow you to have one of each.

That seems like it could have been messy to wire, but in code maybe not so bad. Just an idea in case a Fuzz Thing is planned any time soon.

Expandable interface
Tremolo on all amps
12 stage phaser rack fx (or pedal Moogerfooger style)
Dual stereo delay rack fx
Multi head delay (e.h Echorec, Space Echo)
Boost and Overdrive pedals that can be placed in front of the amp.
Compressor rack that can be placed anywhere in the signal chain - including in front of the amp (ability for 2x Compressors would be great - one in front of the amp and one at the end of the chain, or before reverb.
UniVibe style (fx pedal or rack)
Dual Amp
Ability to use a midi switcher for live / jamming switching between two different presets and have tails etc all carry (I know this would require dual processing engines but it would be awesome).

All of the the above would make S-Gear my entire rig, whether recording, and by adding a midi controller also for jamming and performing.

- intelligent/programmable harmonizer with tone control
- phaser
- compressor
- 3D graphics ;)
- drop tune pedal/POG
- whammy
- dual amps
- resonance control knob for amps (for oomph control on palm mute? Am I right?)
- drive stomps
NO IN APP PURSCHASE BUT $199 price point to help Mike because his work is incredible.
I repeat, it’s better sounding than my Ax8 and recently AxeFxIII (resold!)
It’s perfect, as practice playing as well as using in mixes, it’s perfectly cooked for all purpose!
Reminds me MBritt profiles Kemper feel, very musical.

I love the simplicity of S-gear and the selection. A Vox would be awesome, as would an SVT type bass amp. But in the end, we should remember that we shouldn't expect a small team to make a $129 USD product replace $1000 worth of pedals in every way. I love convenience and options just as much as everyone else in these helix/axefx/etc. days, but I think it's important to think about the opportunity cost. If it takes 2 man months to get a new effect in, how many additional sales from that feature alone are required to cover the expense? And what of other features that don't get developed due to that? Don't get me wrong, I'm all for continuing to improve the (already amazing) product, but let's be mindful that certain things, while cool, may not be "worth it" to the developers.

That being said, my wishes:

- Vox style amp
- Ampeg SVT style bass amp
- Resizable interface
- Tremolo on all amps
- FX send/return for other VST's

Personally - I think S-gear has all the drive characteristics I would ever need spread among the 4 amps available. I think the next best offerings would be a re-vamp of the Mod thing to incorporate the Wayfarers tremolo circuit for use in any amp, and add a nice phase shifter. What I wish I could ask to be added is having the Wayfarer Graphic EQ available to all the amps. The never ending request for an AC-30 or other sim of any commercial amp offering would take the essential marketing in the wrong direction in my book, you can buy somebody else's' rip off of somebody else's product - seems to me that S-gear has unique offerings not available on the market in another form factor.

I feel compelled to just re-gurg my original input 3 years ago. :)

I only ask that there be an update. Mike does not need to know what we want, he's smart enough to know where he wants to run his business. but if I would like to see that update that we are putting long teeth from a long time ago. Hahaha .
