This is a great idea from the humble yet great Atomic Ampli Firebox V1 (it’s not available in his bigger brothers).
The idea is you have the classic drive pedal controls (gain, volume and tone) but then you also have a control that is only possible in the digital world: a post level. We all know that when you add a drive pedal to an already driven amp, you can only get more gain, but if you add this Post Amp Level, you can set a volume bump when you engage the drive block.
Yes, you can do this using an additional post amp block or going to another Scene, but with this idea you can save that extra Block and/or that extra Scene.
I guess they developed the idea to get more from what is a very limited unit (very limited but, for me, it’s the perfect spare rig and sometimes I use it as my main rig).
Yes, it’s simple, it’s possible and it’s not necessary. But best of all, you save some space, time and some processing power.
I think it’s so easy it should be available in every modeler.
And it could also be a good idea for some other effects.
Now, please, tell me I’m wrong and why it isn’t a good idea.
Have an ice day (yes, it’s hot, here).
