The thread speaks for itself...
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
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.
Also, not a big difference but that's the 11 plugin, not the 11 rack. Same tones but having the dedicated interface with the tru-z input would possible make it better. That and I'm sure there's TONS of outboard gear they used.
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.
I like mine.
Here is a demo I recorded with 11R.

Like it good work!
I have made a little more serious test with a song that I have recorded with a mesa dual, I have put the di in the eleven rack and try to match the sound of my mesa.
here is the test :
Assuming that my tone isn't one of the best, give me your opinion.
Nice! I Like it. Any chance you could share that preset?
yes , but I have not pro tools atm installed, but I could write the setting for shure!
