on my youtube today there was a Leon Todd thing, a snip of an early leak of a pedal version of this. Can't find it now so maybe pulled, but could be intriguing.

*edit - referencing this I guess?

I was about to say - if they can put that in a standalone box (pedal or mini amp form), I'd be interested.

Nice kit...but if you have the amp to model from, you have the amp to put a mic in front of and record.

Also, I bought it (not expensive promo as I also have AT5)… crazy latency and IKMultimedia support asks me a question each day to advance my support request but 10 days down and still no solution…

Oh and given I’m running it on a 64GB Mac Studio Ultra and using a Motu 828ES I/o interface I’m pretty sure it’s not a hardware capability thing (which they suggested initially)

For sure, but the thing is in these situations other people have the amps and then copy them for you, like with the kemper :-)

You could copy copied amps from another Tone X.

Once you’ve captured the amp, you can record with headphones, or tweak settings in post :shrug:

I like the idea, but more for the ability to have a small amp library, or tonally faithful backup.

Personally I use the neural dsp plugins and they sound killer, if I had no amps and a laptop based studio I could happily create great sounding music, we’re in an amazing time to be alive as musicians!!

That ToneX pedal could be really handy and I'm hoping a lot cheaper than the Quad Cortex.

First heard of ToneX in this video around 3 months back, the comparison with the Kemper is just 😳
