I like it. It sounds more open.

shitty recording with shitty equipment monitored through shitty headphones.
I actually mean shitty, 30€ Thomann interface, 20€ Behringer headphones and a fucked up guitar
with old ass strings and a Gibson Neck humbucker in the bridge because it was the only stuff I
had lying around, besides that, the Bass is actually nice, X40, too.

Very nice sim, I'm liking it so far. It will be a while 'til I use it in a mix. My only complaint would be that it is noisier than other sims.

Sorry for the sloppy playing, just wanted to give the song a go, it's got a pod rat previous to the ampsim

http://soundcloud.com/maringa/x40-test

Only 'weird' thing I've seen is a really high peak at something like 20khz, but now that I think twice, maybe it was my home made IR... I'll have to check tomorrow, sounds AWESOME to me, it's got the scratchy edge I like and search for even in the POD, the guitar track is not processed at all. Rocking stuff as usual, man!

Gave this a spin yesterday and I have to say that this is definitely my favourite TSE sim, in my opinion it sounds better than the x50. The only thing that struck me as a little odd is the resonant low end, got some peaks building up around 200-300hz. Even with the low knob at 12 o'clock it gets boomy compared to x50 and Lecto.
Also a presence knob could be useful (especially if you were to add a rectifier tonestack), right now it feels like I have to get surgical with an EQ to remove the fizz that the high knob introduces along with clarity. Or perhaps I'm just not used to dialing it in yet, either way I'll have to play around a bit more with it.
Only tried the 32bit version so far and it didn't crash once in Reaper 4 on win7, no problems whatsoever.

Here's a quick recording I made with the x40 (had to multiband comp the low end pretty hard on guits and they're still a bit muddy): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/13494639/brenne2r.mp3

The 5150 have some high frequencies roll-off in front of the tonestack which I didn't implement in the X40, I can try to add the feature to switch between the tonestacks as requested earlier, with the presence-knob of the mesa-tonestack included.. If I implement the poweramp it get the presence-control of the 5150 as well..
The downside of the poweramp is the added cpu-usage.. at this stage it's only a preamp, but the extra dynamics modeling I included (grid current limiting on capacitors etc) have increased the cpu-usage over the X50-"standard" .. Whatever it ends up with, I will try to make it sound good :P

Like reg3n said... The sim sounds good already, but it might not work for certain situations. For the stuff reg3n is playing, this sim sounds perfect. For me, I really love the vintage channel on a recto, so the more modern sounding amps aren't as much to my liking.Alternatives are the spice of life!

Great to see a new ONqel release.
Will test this with Studio One
I'm hoping to see an X64 version of the x30 and x50, please please!

Holy Jesus! That beast sounds incredible with guitarhacks IRīs! And i agree, itīs the most 3-dimensional sounding sim i heard so far... Two things i noticed: It crashed Studio One. Output is very low compared to other ampsims. Works perfect in cubase5...

MetalMiller: Sounds cool, and I agree about the guitarhack's impulses, they sound good with this thing and they are definately my favourite ones overall

I will push at least one more update on this before I go to work again thursday next week.. (fixed artifacts issue, optimization, mesa-tonestack etc)

updated the 32-bit version, there was a rounding error in the 32-bit compiler causing division by zero.. sorry for not testing both version properly (I'm testing mostly with the 64-bit version because it seems like it's more sensitive to errors in general)... I'm gonna take care of the popping sound when opening the plugin/changing quality later on..

Cool

Your TSE 808 is the best plugin overdrive ever
More sustain, more definition, more gain, more...more !

I will try this amp soon

Thanks for those amazingly sounding plugins

spent about 10 minutes with this thing today and it sounds like a beast. I put together a quick sample in that time. Sorry nothing is really mixed, i'm about 20% def in my right ear from excess wax. The only eq is hp lp and 3 small notches

Got it working, now sounds a lot like a Mesa. .6 is one of Onqel's best easily.
