Hi Matt smile.gif

It's like part of a real amp(where channels,drive,clean,EQs are) but without power section.
So you need some power amp to use it live
while it works great in direct recording option.
And this one has MIDI so you can store like 123 sounds,
8 channel modes-from soft clean to Nu-Metal stuff,5 12ax7 tubes etc.
Can't wait to put my hands on it tho!! smile.gif

+1 but just to add that the preamp needs some form of frequency compensation/speaker simulation and load on the line out - without which you could blow the tubes. Most preamps have this but not all.

Very good point Tony,as always. smile.gif
This one has 2 types of outputs,one for power amp and another one for direct recording.
Without these,cab simulator is truly needed.

Looks very cool Muris - get us some sound samples already!

Matt, your AC15 already has a preamp built in - this would be kind of overkill, though if you have an effects loop you can plug one in there and bypass the AC15 preamp entirely.

I have to admit that I am not convinced there is much of a difference between a preamp and some multifx units in terms of what they do, except I imagine that preamps such as Muris' have very specific voicings to get a killer sound whereas multi fx are designed to be neutral (until you add amp and cab modelling). Can anyone throw some light on this?

Assuming that we're talking about rack multis like g major/force, eventide eclipse then I'd say you're pretty much right Andrew. A pre like Muris's lovely new Triaxis will be specifically designed to be able to reproduce various Mesa amps - and others. I'm guessing a bit but I'm sure it can do a great Mark 1 and 2 and a Dual/Triple Rec. Quite a few high end pre's have tube circuitary along with state of the art electronics for midi etc.

Something like a G Force may have some preamp programmes but they'll be a digital emulation and passed through a digital circuit. To my way of thinking a quality rack multi effects really excels usually at things like time and modulation type effects like reverb, echo, chorus and flanging etc. For eq and compression my preference there would be to a separate rack eq and rack compressor generally. (Anyone mention Neve smile.gif .)

There's of course one or two multis like the Eclipse that can also do eq and compression well though:
