I dont think its the holy grail because you dont get that speaker interaction. Speaker break up and pushing air is a big part of the tone. Plus from what I heard it not a "perfect" scale down. Its a lot closer than an attenuator, but still not like a cranked amp. Its like having a real muscle car and a car that looks and sounds like a muscle car. Tromp on both and see what which crosses the line first.Big Bad Bill wrote:But if it really can deliver that 'holy grail' of monster amp tone at manageable volumes then its something I'd be willing to pay more money for, without a doubt. It'd be incredible to have such an ability. Has anyone actually confirmed that the Legacy II actually utilises this technology? If so, even I'd check it out!DomitianX wrote:Because its more of a boutique feature and they would have to pay the licensing fees to go with it. I am guessing thats why the new Legacy is so much more money than the old. They have to pay to license the technology from London Power. The big boys probably dont want to pay to license it and if there isnt much demand for it, they probably dont want to use it.
But from what I read its about a close as you can get right now to truly scaling down the volume without sacrificing tone. Again this is all hearsay because we havent played it, heard any clips or details, but from the hints from Carvin and the stuff I have read on LPS, thats my best guess.
I dont think we will hear much more until NAMM, which is in about a week. This is probably just the teaser to get people to the show to see it in action.
