I say no. There's no way I can emulate what the SS does with any EQ. Now as far as it adjusting the "speed" with which the frequencies travel....mmmmmm.....not so sure. But what it does, I have to admit, I really like. One thing -- using it in an effects loop will create a loss of overall tone. You need to go direct into the amp input. Don't know why. It just seems to be the case. Anyone else experience this?
