    My brother in law has one, I've been there when he's played it on a computer and once with his band live...good for effects like reverb, delay and all that stuff but I wasnt too impressed with the hi-gain aspects of it. he used it for more of a sound akin to what an Orange amp does, really loose fuzzy doom stuff but still, for tight metal, I wouldn't invest in it as the main component for sure.

    I haven't tried it, but I'm kinda tempted to get one because you can buy it (new) with a full PT10 license on eBay, for the same price as PT10 from all the major retailers :p

    Tried it at a convention once. Pretty easy to use and easy to get good tones quickly. Also the bass ampsims were really nice. Can't tell you how well they would hold up in a mix, but for live playing it would be just fine. Got a decent neo-Metallica-style guitar tone out of the one I tried.

    What specifically are you want to know about it? I had one for about 1 1/2 years so I have a lot of experience with one. Awesome cleans, low gain, mid gain but the high gain lacks. Has a IIC+, Dual Rect, and SLO and that's it. There's one digi high gain model but those are normally not the best. Very little support from avid since it's been out, 3 firmware updates (fixing bugs only) and 1 expansion in 3 years. It's a great little unit but where it lacks it lacks very badly. Ask me a few questions, I could write a whole report on it so give me something specific to work off of.

    I have one now in the studio, and I think it's pretty good also for high gain tone, now I'm focused to get peavey and mesa recto good sounds.

    I have done some test, but not very accurate...I have not to much time to tweak the unit, so I have done those test really fast and with no bass guitar...sorry for that.
    This is a rar file contain some hi-gain shit, any opinion are welcome.

    I got one a few weeks ago and so far have only used it to get a basic tone while recording DI's. It can do high-gain pretty well, but you definitely need its gate cranked up cause it gets noisy. I personally like the SLO boosted with the green OD and the 57 off-axis on the v30 4x12. I was thinking about getting the expansion pack, but quickly came to the conclusion that I didn't care. Between it and real amps, I've got plenty of tone options. The only thing I've noticed that I don't particularly care for is the way the DI's out of it sound. I wind up using a normal DI box plugged into my FF800 pre's instead. I may have a setting on the 11R messed up though.
