This heavyweight digital solution packs a mighty punch. How does it stand up to the competition?

Excellent amp models. Neural Captures are really cool. Smartly designed footswitch knobs. Excellent mobile app.

Unable to run Neural's native plug-ins at press time. Some lackluster effects.

They also seem to be unconstrained by the shackles of imitating classic circuits.
