Here are some digital models that are pretty good: While I don’t think I have an amp model that truly sounds as righteous as my real amps, I’ve been puttering around lately with the Universal Audio UAD ‘55 Fender Tweed Deluxe when it isn’t possible to riff on my Fillmore (also a Tweed style amp), and I’m actually liking the UA model quite a bit. I’ve played through numerous Tweed Deluxes in the real world, and they do sound more “present” for lack of a better description, but this model has something going for it. I think they got the texture pretty close to right. Yes, the Fillmore also does real amp Tweed stuff in a more present way, too. Still, I think I could use this model for certain parts on projects if I had to due to time constraints or if a client liked it, and not complain too much. I’ve already mentioned that UA’s model of the Ampeg B-15 Portaflex is very good, and something I’ve used on sessions that count, but not being primarily a bass player, I don’t listen for bass tone the way a bass player might. I’m still not all that fond of the amp models Brainworx made for the UAD platform, but I have them anyway, because a few years ago I bought the entire Plugin Alliance bundle, and their amp models came with it. On my most recent project, I used the UAD API 2500 buss compressor, and I think it’s also got more presence than my Waves version of the same plugin, though a little treble EQ brings the Waves very, very close. I like the PRS amp models that Waves makes, and the NI Guitar Rig Vox model, however these are perhaps a notch less convincing than the UA stuff.
