AmpereUnit of current; the amount of electricity flowing through a conductor. One Ampere is equal to the flow of 6.25x10^18 electrons through a conductor in one second. Amp
ModellingSynthesis technique whereby a sound or set of characteristics is created from a mathematical model. This can be applied to create instrument sounds as well as to simulate the response of a device such as an amplifier, effects processor or speaker to any given input.modelling

, you'll know how big a part the speaker plays. This is where speaker simulation comes in - as with amplifiers, a lot of speakers only start to sound their best when they are driven hard; this can be annoying not only for the guitarist, but also for those not-so-appreciative neighbours!
As with amps, you generally also have the advantage of a variety of speakers to choose from. You may want a huge 4x12 sound, a 2x12 twin
