    Default What Apps Deliver a good "Ed" Sound?

    I'm an analog man trapped in a digital world, and I do not know much about all these digital tools available today. I should. They're of my generation. But, i've rejected them all my life. Anyway, in the interest of simplicity, I'm interested in a multi-processor kind of app and know nothing. I can't use the 5150 anymore. I want to make the switch to something that I can use with a tablet. Can anyone on here make a solid recommendation on an app that will deliver a solid VH and classic rock sounds? Thanks.

    What are you going to be listening through? Headphones? I'm not using any tablet based apps, but I've had a lot of success with Line 6 Helix Native running in Logic. Neural has several plugins modeled after various 5150s that sound awesome too.

    Edword, kudos for the Joe Walsh reference! But welcome to the modern digital age. It's either learn the shit and keep up or blissfully enjoy the good ol' days of analog. One of the reasons I still have my albums and cassettes stored in my collection. The technology will always keep evolving but doesn't mean I have to give up my old-school goodies!

    I used to like Ampkit+. It’s a Peavey app. The 6505+ was my absolute favorite sound in my iPad. Then they changed it. It’s still good. Just not as good. Tonex is pretty good. The user made presets are fun. I found a Balance user made preset that was cool.
    VH III is Ed's solo album. So everybody who keeps saying they wish he'd do one needs to stfu and listen to III. Then stfu again.

    Not exactly what you are looking for but recently I picked up a Boss Katana and am really enjoying it. It gives you the best of both worlds in my opinion in that you have an app/software to go digital but can also use it as a standard amp with the knobs on the front etc. It has headphones out and everything.

    Just a thought....you can pick up a MKii combo usually under $300 and they pack quite a punch. I was in the same boat as you and tried different things (Headrush MX5, Line6, etc) and I have found my home and still hold on to my 5153 for good measure.
    It's 5150 time!

    I appreciate the input. I'd be listening primarily through headsets. Damn good ones, too. I won't be getting rid of the 5150 half-stack. It looks great in the corner. It's just not practical. Not that it ever was for me. I bought it at the height of my youthful Ed-head days. I just finally noticed that on YouTube a lot of players are getting pretty amazing sounds from these digital tools. That was not always the case. Obviously, the tech has matured. And, as I said...I just want the simplicity. Now that the quality seems to be there, I gotta learn. I've used multi-effect boards before. I had a Pod X3 Live that I enjoyed. But, apps and all these computer-based or phone-based tools are all new to me. Your input at least gives a direction to start in. Thanks!

    I've had pretty good luck with JamUp and Bias. Those two apps work together (Positive Grid). Bias app allows you to modify the tube sections in the amps in JamUp and be able to mix an match preamp sections to power sections and bias tubes within the amp. The effect packages are pretty good, but to get really good stuff, you have to purchase them (which is about the same with any app)

    I played around with it for a while and found it to be the best through headphones and even plugged into my Mixer. I eventually lost interest though, and haven't touched it in probably four years. Probably better stuff out there now.

    I ended up finding on old Gen 1 POD Bean for practice. Most of the time, I'm running into the effects return of an old early 90s Peavey Studio Chorus 212 Solid State amp.
