I Agree,

I'm still using the demo, but plan on buying the full version as soon as funds allow. I really like this software and the fact that there is still development happening for future features makes me like Alien Connections even more.
But please reconsider splitting this up into two separate versions. Take the SLO 100 for example. You said you are going top offer that amp in the "metal version", but I know that a lot of folks use it for Blues rock, like Warren Haynes does. From a design perspective I also can't see how this split-up into two separate programs would be better/easier for you Michael, but I'm no programmer.
In my honest opinion I suggest this tactic to you:
Flesh out what you want in included in the Final Version, and barring updates to the functionality etc.. make it just one program.
You could then build specialized amps (or effects) for any genre and offer them as add-ons to the core app. Herberts and Uberschalls for the high gain crowd, Dumbles and Trainwrecks for the blues/rock guys etc...
I would say US $20 would be a fair charge for each additional amp module, as that represents 1/10 of the price of the program. I'm not sure how you would have to re-program the core to accept add-ons but in the end I would think this would cater to you customers in a more complete way.
Thanks for your time and creating one of the most amp-like sims I have heard.

I've read a lot of negative comments about Guitar Rig 2,but it's versatility is great.I agree it's not as good as RVMk2 soundwise,but the range it can cover make's it very suitable for recording.

I understand I probably don't speak for the majority,and Metal and Blues aren't so big here in the Uk,but it'd have been great for Revalver to expand as a single unit.

Gonna try the new beta out,curious about this new distortion unit!

"Expansion Packs" or the like sounds better to me, too. I own or have owned a bunch of hi-gain/"metal" gear even though I have almost no interest in metal. A lot of that gear either has a real interesting breaking point with the gain turned down a bit, or it sounds good layered with a cleaner tone, or it just plain sounds cool!! Remember, classic rock uses hi-gain too, just in a different way. Fuzz boxes are extremely hi-gain, and sometimes a hi-gain amp takes the place of a fuzz beautifully and produces a more current, up to date tone. Retro can get....uh...old after a while :P

I also think add-on packs would be better, the ability to mix and match what amps you can choose from - to have a truly customised version of Revalver would be ace. :D

Hi Michael,

A place to put a little note for a preset would be nice.
So you can say a bit about a preset.

Not really a must have feature, but nice to have.

BTW: still having lot's of fun, this thing is really cool. 8)

Thanks,
Bas

Mute button

Post by ccosta » Fri Mar 23, 2007 8:34 am

Hello ! There is a workaround solution for the Mute button.Insert first the Tuner ( a must , if you check your tunning regulary) and press the button Tuning in silence.Voilá !

Smart. It is not a bad idea.

Whats missing.

Post by ccosta » Wed Mar 28, 2007 6:41 am

Ive tried all the amps, and I think that would be great to have a High Gain amp but with a long smooth sustain( think Steve Vai ,and i know he uses also a DS-1 with the Carvin amp).The Kitty have loads of sustain but even tweaking the tubes is a bit raw/agressive sound.Im not trying to emulate Steve, but thats the kind of sound every solo player likes.
Even if you dont change nothing in Revalver II , it doesnt matter.I can spend all night just playing with the Bluesbreaker amp.Is so gooood !!

I miss more interesting amps

Post by FrankZappa » Fri Mar 30, 2007 8:25 am

The amp simulation in Revalver2 is the best I've heard so far, and the speaker simulation is exellent, however I dont like the Rectifier that much. They should consider doing an ENGL Savage, now thats an amp for metal. Maybe even a Diezel ;)

Yep, there were already a lot of people asking for ENGL amps.

@MICHAEL: Whats the vote count yet?! SLO-100 and ENGL must win the price to be in the next version, for sure - or, to put it in other words....

I seriously think we should have poll as to what amp people actually want for any updates/new versions etc.

but its gotta be something, where people can't cheat and cast multiple votes

Versatile amp

Post by ccosta » Fri Mar 30, 2007 10:47 am

Hey, why not a High Gain Amp better and more versatile than everything on the real market ? The name ? "Alien Ultra Gain" or "Not off this Earth".
I really dont understand the fuss about recreating a amp,when in this case the Super Revalver Team surely can make a lot better amp.
Just make it versatile so we can play metal,rock, blues whatever with it.
