      I quite liked the JMD, lots of good sounds in it, few duffers too but on the whole its alright. Sounds best with T75's rather than v30's or g12m's.

        I just played on one Friday and I thought it was pretty decent. I was thinking it was going to be horrible from what I have heard around here , but I was getting some good tones out of it. It has some great mid to higher gain sounds. The crunch sounds were damn nice also. I am thinking of getting one for a backup to my JVM. The guy that owned the amp had completely retubed the amp, and he said the stock tubes were ****************.

              I really don't understand the purpose of a modelling amp that models 12 kinds of Marshall.

                from the manual:

                To Store - Dial in the tone you require, when you are
                happy, press the Footswitch / MIDI Program switch twice
                (LED is flashing). Using the Footcontroller, select the bank
                you require and then press the chosen preset. The
                Footswitch / MIDI Program switch will stop flashing and
                your settings will have been stored.

                edit: the footswitch probably has to be in "preset mode".. that's in there, too.

                    Yea, cause a 69' Plexi and a Mode 4 sound so much alike :facepalm:

                        No he means, most modelling amps give so much more disperse and different sounds...This one only has a take on marshalls. Too proud and snobby in a sense, even fender had brit style amps on their modelling amps!
                        <div class="signaturecontainer">&quot;is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!<br />

                        <br />
                        short answer: no...<br />
                        <br />
                        long answer: no way...&quot;</div>

                          But none of the marshall range sound like an AC30 or fender twin or mesa boogie or any of the other go-to standards for "I need a particular sound this gig hey good thing I got this modelling amp".

                            Am finding some pretty convincing sounds. Just takes some time. Just like a multi effects processor. But this head is much more advanced
