Hi guys, I took Warren's idea of putting something in front of an amp sim. I have loads of plugins like saturn but I though what about a pedal in front so I used my Blackstar HT DIST pedal with low gain about a 1/4 turned and the sound is great. This is for crunchy tones in conjunction with an amp sim. If going for clean sounds then dialing back on the gain should suffice. You are going through a tube pre-amp in this pedal and it seems to makes a difference!
