I live in an appartment so I can’t play through a real amp for obvious reasons.
So I am playing for many years now through softwares or modelers. For guys that use both Load boxes and Modelers is there any adavantages to play with a real amp + a load box + IRS instead of an amp modeler or software?
I don’t have a load box, but I have both tube amps and have had a few modelers over the years. I think it just comes down to personal preference. If you don’t like programming, go with real amps. If you don’t mind it, get a modeler. I currently have a Helix and it scratches the itch when I need to be quiet. It sounds good. But I haven’t sold my tube amps either. There’s something about just having the knobs right there in the open, and not in a menu, which is why I haven’t sold them. And I’ve had the Helix for 2 years. They’re both good.
