    FUCHS

    It's a winner folks. Forget the rest, this one does clean, crunch & grind, and a super sweet Robben Ford-Larry Carlton OD. And it's Unison tech, so the feel is great, no lag. The set up is much easier too, easier to get a sound then the Fender Tweed, and for sure it smacks the ENGL... I didn't try the Marshall emulations, just not into Marshalls anymore. But this emulation is the the first and only that makes me think I can sell my Mesa Boogie rack system....and not miss it.

    Yes it is a great sounding plugin no doubt. It covers a lot in a simple interface.
    Forget the rest? Nah, it doesn't do everything. But it is a versatile workhorse amp for sure. I think that between this and the Tweed I'm not missing much.

    I looked for the FUCHS plug last night in my Console and didn't see it yet. I'll have to check again..

    You have to update or reload 9.1. I had to reload 9.1

    Tried the Fuchs emulation. My first impression is that it is better balanced than the marshall series, but a step below the fender 55: The fender is maybe the best emulation I've played from the point of view of the feeling and the dynamic (I have an axe fx ultra and have tested a lot of plugins) . I will try again, but I'm not sure I'll buy it.

    Having owned and played a Fuchs ODS 50, which is now my #1 amp, for 3 years my first reaction to the SoundCloud examples was very positive. I have downloaded 9.1 but haven’t installed it yet so I have no comments based on experience with the plugin, my first impression postings will follow later.

    I do have many hours experience with the Fuchs ODS 50 along with a Brown Note D’Lite 22, Ethos Amp, Blues Cube Artist with Robben Ford Tone Capsule, Zen Drive, and Dude pedal. In ALL cases, this approach to guitar tone suits me at this point in my 50+ years of playing. Effortless sustain clean or dirty and clarity in dirtier tones seem to improve my articulation and dynamics using any guitar. My reaction is not universal however. This is not the tone for everyone’s tastes. I still have and will keep my Marshall-voiced amps. BTW, be glad they modeled the 50 watt ODS which uses 6V6 power tubes instead of the 100 watt using 6L6’s. IMO 6V6’s work much better in my D-style amps.

    I began getting useful tones in the 60’s with Tweed Bassmans and Harvards, Sunn KT66 tube amps, 50 watt and 100W Plexi’s (I do like the UAD emulation), along with various digital and solid state options. After seeing Jeff Beck in the mid-70’s I tried a Sunn Coliseum with a LPB1 in the input jack (Jeff may have been using a Princeton) which worked surprisingly well but leveled 3 city blocks. Using the Fuchs ODS 50 I’ve actually received complements on the amp from drummers(!) and the hosts of jam nights asking me to bring it back any time. I’m assuming that I'm allowed to return also…

    I've tried it briefly. With Friedman IR with sm57, i really like the tones and feels really reaponsive. Not using the hi-z , but di into the Mic pre. Works fantastic. One thing i dont like about all bx plugins....too much choice and options. I liked the idea with how the fender tweed interface was made

    Ah, would love to hear your appraisal of how it compares. I have the Ethos OD, and a Ceriatone.

    I just posted my review of the Fuchs plugin over at Gearslutz. Included some sound examples as well!
