RE: Vox Tonelab for looping (reply from Vox about high freq issue)

Yeah, I can see that scenerio... The problem with it is that every amp 
I've tried sounded like absolute crap when run through a guitar amp. Some 
of them
sounded decent direct, none sounded good through an amp...even if you turn 
the cabinet simulation feature.

My DG Stomp, for example, only sounds good through an amp if you turn off 
preamp section (the amp simulation), which just leaves you with a handful 
of efx.
I like the efx, so I do that sometimes.
