i discovered Amplfire, late in the game. and i want to be exited! for me, dirty modeling tone is not important (because i play acoustic-electric).what i look for is the very best compressor. most of the floorboards these days use the same chip sets. it is what the code writers do with the power that sets things apart. the axe-2 has the best compressor (it is multi-band). the kemper has a master compressor, in addition to a compressor inside each amp patch. very kool! Helix also has a 3 band i want to know how clean and diverse the comps (and lims) are with ATOMIC. if i buy one, am i going to feel like i still need an external comp? or, is their internal one impressive? with clean tones, a good comp should NOT give raised floor noise. if it does, its not THAT good. ideally, i want to know if with the Amplifire, i can ad both a comp and a limiter (in addition to delay and mod). be be honest, Amplifire users! maybe some of you have tried the Axe-2 mult-band comp. so, you all know what i expect. no sense on getting cheaper unit (Amplifier) if i still need to ad an external comp and more path cables. i am sure the Amplifire effect are good! but, talk about the comp, please?
