So with each Modeling breakthrough does it become necessary to re-match the amps on your end?
-or do you have all the necessary samples stored?
you're killing us here, cliff!
..but are these new amp models coming out or are these showcases of new tonematch capabilities as asked by mmcm4?
In other words, say that I decided to use the 5150 model in the Axe FX-2 and put all the dials at the 12 o'clock position(5-5-5). Would it sound like a real 5150 with all the dials at the 12 o'clock position (5-5-5) or would it sound like the dials were at a different setting (7-3-9 for example)?
Hahaha! I really crossed my fingers and hoped that the second clip of the bassman was the axe since I liked that a wee bit more. Great and WICKED!

I would suggest that Cliff not tell us which is what. I had it right 2 times in a row, but I was an engineer in a past life. Of course who cares what the general folk believe because for the most part "we" are all wrong. I mean that if we took a poll amongst the normal users, we would probably reach close to a 50 percentile accuracy rating. My opinion was that even though I knew which was modeled each time, I liked the modeled version better, (other than the very, very, very subtle openness of the original).
In regards to the subtleties of the gain and reaction to the original amp. I have to agree that this is voodoo magic whole milk quality. Also, I'm simply amazed at the fact that an amp can be modeled to copy the eq curves with the same authentic tonestack as the original amp. Very cool.
Don't want my brown lipstick to rub off too much so ... "bite me Cliff"...
That modded Bassman model sounds very interesting ..... nice to have a modded Fender amp that sounds different from an early Mesa Boogie (based on a Princeton modded wasn't it?) .... and different to an early Marshall (originally another Bassman mod I believe?).
both clips... so freakin' close. without really concentrating on them no one could ever tell a difference.

I think this is not a new model. I think Cliff re-matched the 65 Bassman that is already in there. As far as I remember it was modeled after Dweezils amp.
In the first example the actual amp sounds a little bit more unpredictable in a pleasing way, but your model of it sounds fantastic. Is it a little more difficult to model lower gain than higher gain amps?
You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus...
I'm stunned at how great this sounds. What an exciting time for me to become an Axe II owner (not even a month now).

Deconsecrate yourself from your tube clouded mind... Embrace the Axe FX. The algorithm has transcended the illusion.
On the first example, the first section sounded a bit more hairy to me, which made me think the second clip is the axe. Axe one had more compressed sound. Something I noticed on many axe clips. Not a bad thing but actually a good thing since our goal IS to make our amp sound good to our listeners.
The Axe clips are always quieter and cleaner when it comes to noises from micing. Loving it!
