Do you think modelers will get there in the next 10 years?

There‘s plenty of cool ways to use modelers and tube amps with lots of people blurring the lines between the two. Using a modeler’s preamp into a clean tube power amp and guitar cabs will usually keep up with a tube amp live. Then there are people using tube amps with ir load boxes to get awesome direct sounds. I think all of the technology is there and you can mix and match to get exactly what you want. I still love the grunt and rage that a high gain tube amp brings to the table, but once it gets miked and put into the foh, I’d almost prefer to send the carefully crafted tone of a modeler.... especially if the sound guy is a little suspect.
