This may seem a little sacrilegious (as it's not Tube, but is still analogue!! :thumb-up: ) but it is ADA's latest offering so I thought it deserved its place on the Depot.
I've not heard much about them but if it's anything like the MPs it should be a solid good sounding unit.
So any thought fellow ADAers ?

There's also some clips on the AD/A site IIRC, I've not listened to them though as, as you say, it's far from MP1/2 sound wise.  It's something that would have been great in my earlier rig(s) when I used my 1972 Marshall 50 (no master vol...) and I just needed a decent lead boost (but I couldn't stand the distortion pedals, had a tube one for a while, it was ok ish).
The manual (attached) has a good section on getting different amp eq's flat (Marshall, fender...) and the settings aren't necessarily what you'd expect.

Our thoughts are with an MP3 (one preamp to rule them all and in the darkness bind them..... lol).
There's a guy doing some interesting stuff to MP1 (thread elsewhere here) (can't find the link, anyone remember ?)

Do you mean this one:
http://mp1.damicos.net/home

I found this website about a year ago. No battery, firmware updates through USB, CC capable, and the best: Rotary controls to replace the front panel buttons!?
This sounds like a dream come true. I've always wished for the MP1 to have knobs like the Rocktron Piranha has.

Hi guys.  I know this thread is over a month old, but I just saw that you mentioned my site  (http://mp1.damicos.net) :)
I lurk on these forums often but missed this until now.

Sorry my mod has taken so long.  My work on it pretty much came to a dead stop for a year or two.  Life got in the way.  As some of you noted, I'm working on it again and I think I'm making some good progress.  I hope to have something worth trying in the next few months.  I wish it could be sooner, but I usually only get about an hour a day to work on it.  I'll do my best to keep you posted as I get closer.  Thanks for checking it out.  I really appreciate that some of you are interested in what I've been up to.

And thanks again MarshallJMP for giving me that EPROM way back when (I can't believe that was 3 years ago already).  It's been very helpful while reverse engineering to know that I'm looking at the latest firmware.
