Mooer has a new cabsim pedal coming out called Radar... If ii's in the same price range as all of their pedals then my guess is around $100. With the features packed into this little thing and the price it really makes me wonder why anyone would even want to tinker with building these 1 trick analog sims..?

I kinda feel the same way about the preamp simulators. I think Mooer has probably the best preamp/amp simulators available today and the prices are just unbeatable... You can get an Engl Blackmoore, 5150/5153, JCM900, Diezel etc with all of the quality accuracy that you would find in an Axe-FX unit....

I get the diy thing, I love diy! If I didn't then why would I be here in the fsb forum... When I see the new stuff coming out it excites me and saddens me at the same time. The exciting part is that a person with very little money can get the sound of hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment all in one or two little boxes.. The part that makes me sad is that it's not diy'able. The tiny percentage of musicians, guitar player that actually build their own pedals, amps and pedal builders this kinda sucks but for the vast majority it's a win win....

Yep, been there already :)

I have next four cabsims breadborded, almost ready to test. Almost.... Two working OK, but another one has suspiciously low output volume, last one is oscillating. All four designed by TrueVAL.

I ran out of breadboard space :)
One cabsim on small board, three cabsims and one amp+cabsim on a large board.

As long as you know what the fuk is what it's all good... I breadboarded something on about 1/3 of the real estate as that and left it for a day, I came back to it and I swear some breadboard fairies came in and re-arrange some things... :scratch:

About 10 minutes of staring at it like a bewildered dog and that was the end of that shit!

Thanks for the link,,Interesting pedal. :thumbsup

I got a little excited until I read the line *20/20 bandwidth*.
Worth note;
Years back I owned a Quadraverb which at the time was one of the most Expen$ive units on the market and also claimed 20/20 Bwidth.
Drove me nuts trying to work out why it never sounded quite right.
Long story short; By inserting a simple ANALOG Cab Sim directly After the Qverb it finally sounded convincing.
I don't know the terminology to use here but some of those digi circuits seem to introduce a lot of crud. The response curve might be right but the excess Bwidth seems to allow other crap to pass through which somehow interferes with the result. My cab sim trick did nothing if inserted *Before* the Qverb.
I have the same trouble with those all in one pedal boards. I recently repaired a Boss GT100 and found the same problem. I still have that very same Cabsim I built on perf board years back so I pulled it out from my bottom drawer and tried the same trick and sure enough it substantially improved the outcome. 8)
These are just my observations so YMMV.

Hey I know what you mean about the bewildered dog syndrome,, I've done the same thing a few times and had to start over. :slap:

Looks like That thing can do almost everything the two Notes Torpedo C.A.B. can do, but in a smaller and cheaper package!

I hate when they give Ole these new toys to play with because usually they haven't been released for sale yet... That means
I gotta stand around with a throbbing boner and a fist full of cash waiting 3 to 6 months to buy! :evil:

OMG I want this!!!
