This is probably not solely connected to my 242, but that’s what I’m using:
Today I purchased and registered a UR242. I’ve heard many demos of this on YouTube and the Guitar Amp Classics sound really good on them - but when I play through mine it sounds really, really bad, like the cheapest of transistor amp distortions. Of course, I’m making sure that the gain is set just below peaking, and the clean amp sound fine. It’s the other three amps that sound terrible, and also the clean amp does when adding distortion.
Connecting to Cubase, the built-in Steinberg amp simulator sounds much better than those.
By the way, these amps sound the same whether used as DSP or VST.
So, is there something I’m doing wrong? I’m just playing through a good pair of Yamaha headphones or through powered speakers via the headphones out. I hope someone can suggest something because the Amp Classics are just unusable, though everything else seems to work fine.
