    Well today....After doing a bit of homework, I went ahead and ordered an Atomic AmpliFire Box

    Just ordered today...

    http://atomicamps.com/amplifirebox/

    Really hoping its sounds decent and gives me the shot in the arm I'm hoping for....

    Had spine/neck surgery about 6 years ago and since then have found myself less and less inspired to play.......partly nerve issues....partly mental.....

    In hopes of regaining a little spark or interest I'm totally downsizing...put some stuff in storage and selling a few things off....

    Want to get down to 1 guitar-1 bass-and my drums.....and hopefully one decent modeler to patch into my board...

    I was gonna just grab Helix LT.....but AmpliFireBox had a stripped down appeal....

    They dont get much mention around here , so I thought I'd give it a shot....

    Its gonna be interesting to see how it sounds.....been running my old V-Amp Pro for years....I have about 5 solid recording tones in there that I could never get out of any of the earlier modelers..pre Fractal, Kemper now Helix era stuff....

    Ordered it today, once I get my hands on it I'll try to post a few comparison videos.....

    I'm really hoping it sounds so good it'll put me in my little studio an hour a night , just fiddling and playing.

    I'm using one. It covers my tweed and Marshall based desires very well.
    I enjoy the lighter number of options with the Atomic stuff. It sounds good with a XiTone powered wedge. Enjoy.

    It reminds me of StudioDevils Virtual Guitar Amp in a hw format. Will probably sound great but obviously performing changes on the fly is pretty limited but if that's not an issue then hey! How are you going to power itt and monitor the sound?
