    Much prefer the frequencies pushed by a Klon-style overdrive to a Tube Screamer. It'd be great to have for some added squishy low gain grit.

    Agree - but I don't want to lose the TS block in the boost logic. Currently it and the clean boost are the only two that really "work" well. Perhaps add a Klon-type circuit model to the "types" available for the boost block...

    Oh, for sure. That's exactly what I had in mind. I feel the same about the Screamer and Clean Boost.

    I prefer Overdrive over the Screamer in every preset I've tried them in. I think it's the best one in the block for me. IMO, they could redo a few of them and add some more, and I'd be happy.

    I'd like them to redo the fuzz. I have had several good fuzzface clones and have a Fulltone 69 now. The two things the modeled one don't do like a real one... fuzz face types clean up incredibly well with guitar volume. Guitar volume at 8 sounds just like the amp with the pedal off, with a good ff clone. And FF types add no "fuzz" when the gain is down low. The modeled one does not clean up as well, and it is probably related to the second point, because with the gain even at 30% on the model, it's adding fuzz.

    I'd like to see a good Klon model and a good Barber Gain Changer model. Honestly, both the low and higher gain sides of the Gain Changer. Heck, I'll send mine to Jace to model if that would get it done. :)

    I'm in agreement. My list of boost model recommendations two years ago were:
    Klon Centaur
    Xotic EP Booster
    WAMPLER Pinnacle
    Analogman King of Tone
    Now I would add EVERY Kingsley pedal to that list!

    a different/new (dare i say more usable) overdrive stomp would be worthwhile.
    I think (and hope) that a few of the effects get updated in a future release, whenever that may be.
