5 Ways To Make Your Amp Sim Sound & Feel Like A Real Tube Amp

Whether you have a Universal Audio Dream 65, a Strymon Iridium, a Walrus ACS1, or a Line6 Helix, you're probably not quite capturing the magic of a real tube amp. So in this video, I want to share five ways that you can make your amp simulator pedal sound and feel a lot more like the real thing.

If you've found another way to improve the guitar tone you get from a pedal or software, please share it in the comments!
