+1 Love the Selmer!
After R*A, it would be great if you did some bass amp and cab, because a lot has been done for the guitar, but not for bass ( except buggy few from Henry )

Hi Tim, just to clarify for me, does this mean this update does now contain a complete 2A emulation ?

Thanks.

The makeup gain is regular makeup gain not sampled. However the clipper basically gives you what happens when you increase the output pushing the unit into distortion
