What's that? Solid state or tube?

hmmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder how Line 6 does it? Any suggestions on where I might find some of their guitar amp schematics?

Thanks,

Just bought a line 6 for my daughter... pretty cool.

They "do it" by converting the signal to digital then all kinds of tricks are availabe. Power supply sag, non-linearity, transformer saturation, harmonic distortion can all be modeled.

And, it works... pretty darn well! Now as I told my daughter; it not the same as the real thing... but she can't carry or afford 12 different amps anyway.

They do it all with 24bit DSP, as poobah suggests. A schematic won't help you unless you plan to sample some vintage amps, model them, and then program a microcontroller.

Me too have a Line6 PodXT, I needed it when I made covers with my band. We covered many songs at the beginning, and we moved toward a Pink Floyd cover band, so lots of effects needed.
Yes it is very cool, and extremely realistic even with bad SS amps (new Fenders, cheap ones).

I've also opened it once and saw that the main processor was Philips brand.

Now that I only play blues and a little jazz I'm thinking about selling it and build a tube amp... too much to carry it around.

(a little OT... you realize that you've spent too much time on hi-fi tube amps when you're looking at a Fender tube amp schematic and say: I would have done it better, what's that? Pentode mode? 12AX7??? )
