It's certainly in the ballpark of a foxxtone... hard to say without
doing a direct comparison with the same input, and I've never recorded
a foxxtone "direct".

Maybe try running the output file through Tim's CabSim plugin?

hmm... I'm looking around for recordings made with my foxxtone with
the octave switch on... can't find any. I have several with the
octave switch off... like the choruses of both of these songs:
Both were played on a home-modified instrument with two bass strings
and 4 guitar strings.

... man, those sound awful, I gotta re-encode those (I think that was
bladeenc at fixed 128 kbps, bad choice for rock music.)

I haven't listened to those in a while... forgot how edgy his lyrics
got :)
