Marshall® JMP 2203
Marshall JMP 2203
Great Sound - Missing bypass pre amp feature!
A nice sounding simulation BUT - where is the bypass pre amp feature from the ENGL amps?
This simulation is really a great one but real tube pre amps has still a greater dynamic range. Thats why the best results can be only achieved with the combination of real preamp and power amp, cabinet microphones simulation (at least in a neighbor friendly environment).
Its so sorry that SoftTube didn't provide one additional switch to turn of the preamp section ;(
Sorry but not sold on this one UA!
Downloaded the demo. To me the silver Jubilee was is a smash hit but the jmp 2203 left me scratching my head. First off some of the stock adjustment sounds were either to flat and bassy or way to brittle and high endy and some of these tones left my ears ringing at low volumes. Not sure why. On the other hand I did manage to dial in so alright tones by messing with the mics and knob settings. The filter cut is pretty cool and you will need it especially if you decide to use some of the stock tones. If guitars sounded this bad in the 80's I am lost for words. Well hopefully UA will model a mesa of some sort in the future. I really dont think they will be able to top the Jubilee. I was generous with 3 stars.
