Which 15" cabs are you using?
whoops,forgot to reply! running the ONE (12" and 15"),dual BW ,twill 15';and AZ ben which is an 18" but,well its not a v30!
I have used none of those! you'll be happy with the free cab that was released this week then?

I don't mind the v30 ones. The uberkab v30/t75 is cool. I'm finding i like heritage speaker variants the most. I've gone for one cab of each speaker celestion speaker type. Next to suss out the Eminence cabs...

yeah gotta say ive actually spent a little more time with it because of this thread-and it is really pretty good!
I dont really get why v30's are so loved,they are everywhere and i like going in the opposite direction to the general populace.probably why i like blue marvels (eminence) so much haha.Oh and t75's.
Was just jamming that fluff EVH into W.O.S just now.Pretty good stuff!

Sound kinda similar? I quickly used it the other day, but ended up spending the best part of an hour chugging and noodling away. Made me smile.

Then I go down the rabbit hole of buggering around with different IR's...
No one ever died of hard work.. but why take the risk..

Similar to the red channel dialled right up yep. EVH uses greenbacks so in to v30 you get that modern metal sound rather than the 80s metal/rock sound.

Supermassive is a free VST from ValhallaDSP. It's designed for massive reverbs, harmonic echoes and general space sounds. You can download it for free here (find Super Massive at the bottom and choose either MAC or Windows). No registration is needed. Just unzip and install.

Aside: ValhallaDSP makes wonderful reverb and modulation VSTs. I own VintageVerb (it's my default reverb send effect), which is 9 classic digital reverbs and 3 color modes inspired by the most beloved reverb hardware from the 1970s and 1980s. All their commercial plugins are $50 USD each and they never go on sale (so if you want to buy it don't wait for Black Friday. Edit : maybe wait until the USD isn't stupidly strong against the NZD actually).

BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover is a free orchestral plugin. You can find it here.

BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover, which was developed in close collaboration with BBC Studios, is described by Spitfire as a “straightforward and inspiring gateway into orchestral composition” that comes in a small 200MB package.

The library offers 33 instruments, spanning strings, brass, woodwinds and percussion, which can be applied to media composing and producing. These all fit within Spitfire’s own plug-in interface, which works with most major DAWs, from Reaper to Presonus One to Ableton Live.

For the YouTube video, skip to 1:27 if you want to hear a short orchestral piece using the plugin exclusively.
