I hear about modelling amps here often...still don't really know what they are.

an amp that has many tones based on other already existing tones/amps

They're digital amps that try to capture the sound of a bunch of (usually) rare or expensive tube amps. Most tend to fail but there are some good ones like the Line 6 Vetta and I've heard good things about the Fractal Audio AxeFX preamp.

aaah...so the ones which give you preset EQs basically? e.g. Californian rock, 80s metal, blues, etc.

It seems lots of people hate modelling amps...why?

Why? It saves you from buying all the other amps/pedals to get a similar tone.

They're not preset EQs. They have digital voicings meant to capture the sound of an amp. Californian rock would likely be based off of a Mesa, 80s metal a hot rodded Marshall and Blues a Fender, vintage Marshall, Dumble, etc. The reason was stated in my original post. Most fail at capturing the feel and sound of the amps they want to copy.

first the guys study the original signal of an expensive tube amp that they want to emulate, then using microprocessor technology your guitar signal is changed, so that it sounds something like the tube amp it basically converts it into computer language(or a digital signal) changes it(to sound like the tube amp) and then changes it back to ur analog signal. hope that made some sense

As processors improve they will get better. There is also some full tube modeling amps that recreate the sound of various amps using analog circuits. (Mesa Road King)

Interesting...

IMO, there seems to be nothing wrong with modelling amps...I tried the Vox VT 30 a couple days ago (it's a modelling amp), and although the set of different voicings weren't particularly useful to me, they aren't really a bad thing. There's no harm in it, eh?
