The riffs are proggy and melodic and I really like the musical side of this, but I keep coming back for that voice and I can't stop listening. I love DT, but I can't help feeling like this is what "The...

    Max Ostro

    Thanks for sharing; I hadn't heard of him. This is crazy good. 15 years old?! The speed and technique is incredible, and he seems to have dynamics and feel too. Picking, tapping, legato, everything is so clean. Here's another one:

    Bump for Christmas weekend in case anyone missed it the first time. I've been listening to this a few times a day this whole month and still really enjoying it.

    Neat Christmas cover: Mr. Grinch

    Here's a thread from a few years ago where this was discussed, with a preset too: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/anyone-had-any-luck-replicating-the-pog.44405/#post-583926 However, that's focused on single-note stuff, and I'm under the impression that the POG does a better job than the...

    Neat Christmas cover: Mr. Grinch
