NuX MG-30 Multi-Effects Modeler Pedal, Black
About this deal
Best of both worlds, albeit it can generate some noise, of course, if the proper tools and strategies are not used. Now, the closest thing to a real amp tone was generated through my paraEQ pre EQing feeding an amp sim in STUDIO DIRECT output mode, cab sim disabled.

You could save a blanked-out preset to work as your base to work from, just save it over wherever you want to start a new one.
Impulse response programming presents a choice of 8 guitar cabinets, 8 bass cabinets, 8 microphones in 3 different axis positions and even 3 acoustic guitar emulation profiles. Done something similar with the Valeton GP100, whose left and right outputs can be differentiated as enabling an IR or not. I owned and played through the real thing for years and the MG-30 was the closest to that experience out of all the modelers I have owned. Still no flat frequency response from the MG30, even all effects are still disabled and all EQ controls are still at noon.
guitars (8 mics x 3 mic positions selectable), 8 basses (8 IR cabinet simulations) 8 guitar simulators (8 microphones x 3 mic positions selectable), 8 bass IR cabinet simulators, and 3 IR acoustic guitar simulators. I've purposedly done these tests with a sofware potentially easy to find and to use for other musicians: Rightmark Audio Analyzer.
I think some of the models can be a bit processor hungry on the stomp leading to possible compromises but I’m sure it can do most anything you need with some judicious editing . Lots of "body" in the tone and it loves harmonics, which is where most modelers usually get disqualified. The biggest bummer - you can do reamping with the device directly, requires no additional USB interface.The permanent low mids bump in COMBO FRONT and STACK FRONT modes keeps being potentially annoying once the amp sim disabled, nevertheless. If you select bypass in the drop down menu you use to select between pedals, it should show a blank space in Quicktone.
