you use Dynatube strictly as an amplifier and not for distortion,
it's about as good as computer amplifier models get. The thing
about certain native guitar rigs is that it's all processed sounds.
Personally, I'd rather use Dynatube, pedals and Scope effects, as I
think it's the most real guitar sound available without an amp.
After my first recording
session with Dynatube - one word:
AMAZING! I have had a JCM800 superlead 100w since 25 years ago so I'm
used to his sound. This is the first time using a plug in that I've got the
sensation of playing with the real thing! It's unbelievable!
As I'm a fanatic of re-amping I bought the
Dynatube for the convenience of zero latency monitoring
during the tracking and then re-amp later with my amp
(SonicCore-->HD24XT converter --> radial reamp DI--> JCM --> m160
ribbon --> Neve preamp --> HD24XT converter --> SonicCore).
This plug in changed my mind. Why re-amp if the sound is
already there? I can feel the difference in the preamp stage
and master stage like the real thing, and frankly it never happened
in real life to put the master to 10 with a real jcm800 100W.
It's freaking LOUD (I always need a power break). This is the
first time I'm happy with a virtual preamp. It's so dynamic!
You can control the drive directly with the volume pot of the guitar
exactly like in real life. We were really surprised.
It's exactly like having the real amp in front of you.
Just want to tell you that I like it so
much that I bought me a

I have the Dynatube bass bundle,
which I found so convincing that I'll get at least the Fender
emulation of the guitar set.
Well looks like I will have to earmark the
dollars to get the Dynatube Bass bundle as well. Look for a
future review on that one.
