Softube's amp sims are definitely my favourite. They put the effort into making the plugin sound good before making it look good, which is seemingly where IK went wrong.

well i bought it. im going direct through a hamptone tube pre (built by scott hampton) into my apogee mini me. into pro tools le via 003.
ive got my phase/levels etc. all set proper.

And the level on my meters,are way low. not near clipping. and im still getting a clipping distortion sound. i put a trim plug on and dropped it 20db and that took care of it but killed the sound and dynamics. after i recorded the pass and pulled the trim plug it sounded fine. is this just the nature of var. or am i missing something.

Ive tried and own most of the classics GR4, Amplitube 3 etc... works sometimes but lacks everything good in tone... mostly.
