I had a discussion with a producer regards a future recording project and I mentioned I'd just started working my way through a HX Stomp and wondered what he thought about using modelers in the studio. He just shook his head. He said he uses them now and again but always prefers not to as he just doesn't think they come close to the real thing when under scrutiny in a studio setting.
He does have a very nice collection of amps but I was a bit surprised at how dismissive he was of amp modellers. Is this still a widely held view?
