    Wish All block have been revamped, except..

    A few days ago I was digging thru the release notes of all firmwares, and noticed that pretty much every effect has received at least one major update since the axe fx III came out. All except the rotary block. Don't get me wrong, it's already excellent at recreating a classic leslie sound, but...

    Drive Models Suck

    It might be true for some kind of tones (likely the ones you're after) but it isn't so for every existing guitar tone. There are pedals that have a unique sound that you won't find in any tube amp (e.g. big muff, fuzzes, pro-co rat) and they usually work well only on vintage-style clean amps...

    EDITED: This Forum's Search Engine was down but is Back Up.

    Today all I get when doing a search on the forum is this screen (already tried from various PCs/browsers):

    Drive Models Suck

    For the tubescreamer I don't have a clue, all sound very similar. Super OD: axe is #1 DS1: axe is #4 Timmy: axe is #1 Anyway, with drives it's more difficult to pinpoint what's happening since they all go into an amp which adds its own distortion and even a minuscule level difference between...

    They All Sound the Same Part Deux

    Just did the same and I couldn't either, literally identical

    They All Sound the Same Part Deux

    This one seems pretty obvious (famous last words): 1. Amp 2. Axe FX 3. Other "modeler" 4. Other "modeler" 5. Other "modeler"

    They All Sound the Same Again

    The first one sounds the most open and "in your face", 2 is similar but lacks a bit of air, 3 muffled and lifeless. So first thing I'd say is: 1= amp 2= axe 3= something else But since the difference between 1 and 2 is not so subtle as in previous comparisons I could venture to guess that this...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 19.00

    First rehearsal for me as well, and... oh boy, you all need to try this firmware with a power amp and cab, sounds tight and punchy as hell!

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 19.00

    Maybe an authentic/ideal switch to have both options?

    I'm fairly new to high gain tones, is this good? (Tool - Invincible)

    This was the one I used to record the track but I don't remember which IR I used cuz I rearranged them since then on my axe fx, anyway the preset might need some adjustments too since it was made a few firmwares back. Enjoy! PS: anyway, wait for @Jambi 's one cuz it's a lot better than mine...

    They All Sound the Same, It's About Workflow

    That's what I thought too but we are wrong :tearsofjoy: I just listened again by quickly skipping thru the track to the same snippet of all 4 samples and this way it's clearer that 1 and 4 are the closest, maybe listening to them in the order they're recorded creates a sort of psychoacoustic...

    They All Sound the Same, It's About Workflow

    This. I rarely guess from samples but while playing is a different story. And slightly different recording levels in the sample might trick us too

    They All Sound the Same, It's About Workflow

    Hmm.. I interpreted Cliff's sentence as the first two being different than the last two, if he didn't meant that I am deaf too then :sweatsmile:
