    Is the Axe-Fx 2 still good? My attempt to dial killer tones.

    The Axe FX II doesn't just sound good, it sounds great. Still love my Axe FX II XL+. When properly dialled in its a warehouse of Amps, Cabinets, pedals and rack gear in one black box. And in the hands of a musician like you Camillo its a veritable swiss army knife of tones.

    studio monitors

    Personally I'm using a pair of EVE audio SC 207 with ribbon tweeters and a Yamaha HS8S subwoofer to cover the lower bass octaves. If you need an extended bass response, get a subwoofer.

    Tom Scholz Tone

    Here is the wah block that can be used instead of the filter block. It supplies that resonance that's missing for the foreplay/longtime electric guitar break at the end of the song.

    Tom Scholz Tone

    Hello all, like some of you I've been hiding from the Coronavirus in my tone dungeon dialing in some new and old sound on my Axe FX II XL+. A friend asked me to find him a reasonable approximation of The Boston sound. I did some research, watched a few videos, and came up with this. Please...

    Distorted Riff with Clarity.

    I've done a few tweaks. Rolled off some bass in the filter block, changed the U67 to an SM57, and kicked up the master volume and lowered the level in the amp block a bit. I also dialed back the proximity in both cabinets in the Cab block. Lowered the bass and depth in the amp block and boosted...

    Guitar Matching

    This can be done by doing a tone match and then exporting it as a Cab block and using that cab block as your first block so it converts it immediately to whatever configuration of pick up you want.

    I didn't want to go that deep, but these 3 tubes can be used without rebiasing to give a different flavour to one's Tube amplifier without risking blowing it up. I never said they were identical, I said equivalent.

    EL34, 6CA7, and KT77 are equivalent tubes. EL34 is designed by Mullard, 6CA7 by Sylvania and the KT77 by M O V of England can also be used and sound excellent, I have a pair of KT77's in my Boogie MkIIC+ and they sound awesome https://humbuckersoup.com/tubes/el34-vs-kt77-tubes-difference/...
