FRACTAL : Going Into The Weeds : Amp Dynamics Page

From the FM9 manual. (FM9 now has input dynamics ported)

This is pretty cool. I was messing with this with a vintage style strat using the Band-Commander amp with York Audio AC30 IRS. Edge of breakup tone.

Setting the type to "feedback", adding a little bit of input Dynamics (under 2). Setting output compression to 2.5 and setting the threshold so that hard playing compresses around 2 db.

Rolling back the guitar volume or playing lightly give you a nice clean tone. As you increase the volume knob and dig in you can get extra gain and dynamics. The output compression helps keep the volume jump between the two under control.

I haven't tried it with higher gain yet. But it's worth checking out IMO.
