    I've recently been creating a number of new presets and in doing so I've discovered that what I’d really like Atomic to do is allow me to use two boost blocks as there are times when I’d really like to layer things a bit. The Clean Boost, Screamer and Overdrive affect the tone quite a bit in their own way and I’d like to combine those sometimes. I can’t be alone as I’ve noticed a few people mentioning using two boost blocks and until now I never realised why but now I think it would be a fantastic option. In comparison, I find the Distortion option to be utterly useless as all it does is add loads of distortion on a system where I have plenty amp model options to do that for me. On a personal level, I never use the Fuzz option either but I’m sure others do. I can’t see how anyone uses the Distortion option! Is there any possibility of two Boost blocks in the future?

    Have you tried running a peq (peaking or gain only) or even a compressor in front of the amp block as a psudo second drive for now?

    You can also use the Graphic EQ as a boost. You can boost specific frequencies and the output level.
    Also, if all you need is a volume boost for solos and you don't use the FX loop, you can plug a very short cable
    between the send and mono return, boost the level with the return level parameter and assign the FX loop on/off to a foot switch.

    You can also use the PRE block set to GAIN only to boost the boost and the amp

    I never use phasers or flangers, and it seems wasteful for those blocks to be sitting there unused while they seemingly could be assigned to a second boost block or whatever DSP would support.

    Together with global EQ, I'd pay money for that firmware upgrade.

    I would really appreciate two delay blocks, so I can shift between different mix levels and subdivisions
