  • Nice little module and an interesting paper reviewing various approaches to tube amp simulation. As is often the case, I didn't realize what a complex subject this really is. Makes tanh() look pretty tame.
  • @stschoen yes! The next frontier seems to be frequency-dependent distortion...
  • I took the liberty of adding some of the links you posted to the thread on academic resources (so I wouldn't lose them)
