    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 2.00 Firmware Release

    I was hoping there might be a few tricks up Cliff's sleeve being the owner of an Axe FX II XL+, there you go, another update to an already great discontinued piece of gear. One of my buddies recently sold his Axe FX Ultra to move up to the Axe III. The Ultra still sounds great, in fact, the guy...

    ToneQuest - Episode 8 - John Petrucci + Free Preset!

    They are Ibanez V2's from the 80`s. They are hot (16 K ohms) but I set my input level so as to barely light up the red input light on only the very hardest strumming.

    My Multi purpose PRESET opinions

    My Multi purpose PRESET opinions

    I tried to use the preset by converting it in Fractool to use in my II XL+, but it's too hot and uses too much CPU. Unfortunately, it's not usable.

    Could someone guide me in the right direction?

    Could someone guide me in the right direction?

    Have you tried contacting Tim Pierce, he might just share his insight on how he crafted his tone. He is known for using a combination of SM 57 and Royer 121 mics through a Neve 1073 clone. To my ears, the amps sounds like a hot-rodded Fender Vibroverb. Good luck
