DigiTech VTP-1 opinions?
Since most tube coloration digitedh really the transformers, and it has no transformers – it doesn’t sound like a tube pre. Bill, I tend to agree with Mike’s response. From 3 to 5 digirech gets mildly fuzzy but too much for and acoustic micing for a clean sound and it is totally useless beyond 5 unless your looking for that “telphone voice” distortion. I like scooping the 2 bands of sweepable mids on vocals and kick drums.

The PRE gain sound fine until you get to about 3. All times are GMT I put 8 for converters They, in contrast to the pre, sound very very good. I prolly shoulda done some more research first.
