    Kudos to Fractal ! Metallica/AX7 gig in Baltimore.

    Big Mick is as pleasant and awesome a person as he seems. I had a very enjoyable multi-hour 'beer accident' with him many, many, many years ago when he was just starting out with Metallica.

    Am I right in assuming that...

    Ahem... The original Magpies are Notts County, an older team than the 'Toon' if I am not mistaken...

    State of the Union for FAS - what's next for Axe Fx and more

    Buy or, don't buy. You either want the best modeller available now or you don't. If you want certainty then don't buy. As far as tone emulation is concerned I think we have hit the singularity. The only potential improvements are in ease of use and additional facility. I won't be replacing my...

    Reamped tone always sounds worse

    Huh? Do it right and they are indistinguishable in my experience. (monitor on headphones, digital in and out, don't fuck in any way with the recorded clean track)

    In the Spirit of NAMM Anouncements (FAS reactive load box)

    Very smart. People have an emotional attachment to tube amps and there is a very real value to having physical knobs to fiddle with (ooh er...). This is an efficient way to incorporate them into the AFX ecosystem, and tempt newcomers. Yes it's just a load box, but very likely to be best load box...

    New FAS Video w. Larry Mitchell + Free Presets!

    I'll be off the plane, dump bags at hotel and straight to the Marriott. Wouldn't miss it. (Shared a laugh with Andy Timmons two years ago during the gig when Larry circulated the room, still playing of course...awesome)

    hook your headphones straight into headphone jack of the the Axe-Fx II XL+

    I've no idea why anybody would say that. Fantastic headphone amplifier - but very powerful - take care with volume control (output level 1)

    Met Larry Mitchel in Hamburg getting ready for a gig.

    Larry's gig at NAMM is always one of my highlights - total chaos in a good way.

    Is the Axe-Fx II XL+ 100% of the way there tonally?

    But you're quite happy with the sterile digital cheesiness of a digital YouTube video, y' know, off the digital internet?...
