I haven't pulled any of my amps out of storage for a long time. These days I am 100% software (STL Tones and Helix Native) on a laptop and just running through the board when playing out. The only hardware I need is a floor based switching system, but that isn't really necessary anymore either (thanks to Show Page in Studio One 5) and it has pretty much become just a fairly expensive and bulky volume and expression pedal.
Lot of ways to slay the dragon these days. Pretty amazing stuff. I did use Bias FX for a bit. But I found myself playing more with the software, than playing my guitar. Too many options for a beginner to fiddle with. It did sound good though.
