    Hello.

    Yes, I know you can do that with EQs, but... Such a beautiful idea should be in every existing platform. From my lack of technical knowledge, I think it would be very easy and it wouldn't eat a lot of processing power.

    It's simply fantastic and beautiful.

    In case you don't know what I'm talking about: In the Boost section of the AFB, you have the 3 classic parameters (tone, drive and level) and a Post Level which is placed after the amp, so you can use it to add volume when using the Boost in front of an already driven amp without using any other block. Great for solos or for a level bump in some parts like choruses.

    :)

    There is a sneaky way round this by using the fx send/return loop by and a variavle/switchable attenuator.
    You can then set the difference between your “loud and quiet” levels and either achieve the level change by switching in/out the fx loop or by leaving it “always on” and having some way of switching between the two levels on the attenuating device.
    Not a particular pleasant solution but could be achieved using minimal external/additional hardware.
    Personally i like the AA12 because everything is in one box and i dont need other bits of kit. ( i also use the eq block as a level-boost)
    Just an idea to share, anyhow...

    Related to this, a general volume leveling block would be a good addition (and negilable dsp cost).

    The amp, compressor, and cab blocks work in varying situations, but not one size fits all.
