So, to begin with I took the ASC1 right out of the box and started making a preset. It was pretty damn good but then I went, "Wait, is this the latest firmware?". Nope. Doh! So I updated (thus losing the work I just spent an hour on), but it was worth it. The updated firmware, cabs, amps, are super fantastic. I mean, really alive and much more full of depth and realistic than the V1 I just spent an hour with. The ability to fashion two different amps and cabs, one on the left side and another on the right, is a truly beautiful and magical thing. I chose the Fender on one side and Vox on the other but I did use the second cab in position C for the AC30 (which if I'm not mistaken, is a ribbon mic). Combing two completely different flavors of amp both employing different cabs and different mics is revelatory. If you play in mono it's great too and I've tried that as well but the combo of left and right is truly the ticket here. The compact size is extremely welcome too. Very pedal board friendly. Well done Walrus Audio. Go for the update, stay for the stereo.
Hey Ed! We are sorry you lost time dialing things in BUT are happy you got the update squared away. Sounds like it is working well for you! Cheers! - Walrus Audio
