Is there a sound difference between "generic gain" and the LP gain of an amp? I realize the taper, and amount offered will change to match the actual amp, but within the same gain range, is the sound different between generic and the LP gain of an amp? In other words, lets say I have a Marshall LP and it shows the gain on 9. Generic gain would have been like 6 to match the same level. If nothing is done to the EQ, does the amp feel/sound the same between a liquidprofile and the same profile with a generic stack set at matching gain levels?
I just wondered if I am using unaltered snapshots of an amp and don't care if the EQ or gain taper/amount is "authentic" Is there a reason to use liquid profiles?
Say if I have a Soldano amp I've been using pre LP, is there anything I will gain by adding a LP stack of a Soldano to it if I don't know the original EQ settings?
