    Default Replacing My Amp

    Looking for some input (see what I did there?)

    Selling off my Spider III amp, trying to decide which direction to go. USB interface and either Bias FX desktop or free plugins, or iRig with with Bias FX for iOS. Not doing anything professional, just looking for some decent amp sims and basic recording/playback

    See my previous post on your other thread. Both the Blackstar ID and Boss Katana amps have USB connectivity and access to their own special effects. Both are highly regarded.

    Look at the guitars he's rocking, pretty easy to figure out what type of music he listens to.

    LOL fact.

    I decided to ditch the amp entirely. Using Bias on my phone and running it through my home stereo. Or headphones if it's late

    True enough, but there are a lot of different hard rock/metal genres, each requiring a different amount/style of distortion. I really like my Jet City for 80s metal styles, but it wouldn't work for someone who is interested in a super scooped sound. Can't really dial out the mids. The other questions still stand.

    For metal - digital stuff should work fine.
    The Law of Gravity is nonsense. No such law exists. If I think I float, and you think I float, then it happens.
