but I know OwnHammer has sampled some distortion pedals for the tone control (since you can't capture distortion and he left it at 0, you get a clean signal with only the tone control).
He also has sampled some tube power-amps which have a 'voice' and 'tone' control. Looking at what I got, his 'EggTwister 6L6' got only a tone control. His Framus 'FrameSnake' got 'deep' and 'presence', so no tone control there. The Fryette has 'voice' (together with 'presence' and 'depth'). The 'IncSphere 6L6' (don't know what it was) also has a tone control.
They're pretty transparent, only adding some harmonics and warmth I guess, and the tone control. They don't seem to compress (or not that much) and don't do gain / distortion. The more you drive it the more the frequency response has a high-roloff from the tubes of course.

I was about to suggest that too. Their auto level function makes EQ'ing more like a tone control. The fact that it's free is so awesome it's confusing. I'd still recommend Neb EQs for many tasks, especially euphonic color like Pultec, etc., but the TDR EQ is so easy to use. It's a workflow marvel with pleasant sound.
i actually did one of these from a tube radio in my first set, tube fm 1. there are lots of programs from various radios, but one program sampled a tone knob, which mostly acted like a high pass or low shelf.
in my 'frequency tweekers B' set i sampled an old tube amp that came from an old record player console. it has separate 'bass' and 'treble' controls, both sampled and separately adjustable, and i sampled it 3 different ways to get slightly different sounds each time.
i'm pretty sure these were the first programs with adjustable EQ of any kind combined with sampled dynamics, and that's still a pretty rare thing. i think they probably have more dynamic steps and sampled eq steps than any other out there still (sample count in the tube amp eq programs going into the thousands), for plenty of resolution in the models of the hardware.
being old tube stuff, these programs have pretty heavy color.
