    I can't imagine how many times I've said this over the years but I'm absolutely loving this firmware. The new reverbs are stunning and inspiring. Thank you as always Cliff and team!

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 10.01 Firmware Release

    I don't know shit about code or any of that crap, but I know a good tone and I love this latest update. Thank you Cliff, not just for this but the last several years since the original AxeFX, its been an incredible journey and Ive enjoyed every step of the way!

    Ares on XL+ ... mission possible or impossible!

    Some people will never be satisfied, some will, tbh I'm more than happy with my XL and if a new product is developed that in some way is better then great, I'll do my best to buy into it! Whatever happens I'm really happy with my XL.

    Pretending by Eric Clapton

    Has anyone had any success with creating a 'Pretending" preset by Eric Clapton on the the Journeyman album? I think it's one of the best recorded tones ever but can't get close. Probably to do with the vocal wah type tone on the outro solo. Any ideas?

    Blank Bank?

    Um thanks, I would never give my wife the credit card. That would work for a preset I guess but I know there's a way of clearing a bank. No problem, I'll go and fuck about in Axe-edit.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.02 Public Beta

    I had a few issues with Quantum firmware tbh, at times it felt a bit 'harsh' but still good. However, 7.01 and 7.02 have been a revelation. I know it's been said so many times but I can't imagine it getting any better than this. Plexi 50 with Shimmer drive is absolutely epic.

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Public Beta #2

    Exactly, it's my interpretation of a 'clean lead', I didn't mean it was a clean tone in the normal/conventional sense.
  30. Coldsummer

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Public Beta #2

    Lovely tone Thibault, I've been searching for what I call a 'clean lead tone' for ages and that really nails it. Are you planning on updating any of your preset packs anytime soon? If so it would be lovely if this was included!
  31. Coldsummer

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Public Beta #2

    Looking forward to the update in view of what Cliff said about the Plexi 50. My main tone for ages has used the Plexi 50 normal and I found it very harsh in this beta so have started looking at other alternatives. Would be nice to go back to the Plexi as nothing quite comes close.

    3 Sigma Audio IR's

    Just a quick update. The acoustic IR's are fine but need some volume tweaks. I've only tried the piezo and electric ones as I don't have an acoustic to try out the soundhole IR's. Anyway, the main thing is the normal cab IR's are stunning and well worth a try. I've tried several of the cab...

    3 Sigma Audio IR's

    I haven't really kept up with the latest developments so forgive my ignorance if there is an obvious answer to this. I've just purchased a few IR's from 3 Sigma Audio (some cabs and acoustic IR's) and they come with Fractal Audio folders but these still have .wav extensions whereas I thought...

    Anyone not a fan of Quantum 6?

    My initial impression is that my main tones are slightly more 'in your face' and somewhat 'harsher' for want of a better description but not in a particularly bad way, just different. They have the impression of more drive or gain but I think it is more of an eq change than simply reducing the...

    NEW AX FX....3 WHEN????

    I was down my local pub the other day deep in the rural shires of England just drinking a pint of real ale and Cliff came in and told everyone that the AX3 would be out by Christmas. No he didn't, I just made that up.

    Nice tone Brett!

    Preset charging creators

    I think the fact that the end-product happens to be a preset is largely irrelevant, it's simply a question of people seeking to be compensated for their time and expertise which is something most of us do if we work for a living and the principle is exactly the same. It would be hypocritical to...

    Hey Danny, thanks for sharing your experience with us, I find it really fascinating as someone who has never really been in a studio. I love to see how you more experienced guys go about programming your tones even if it's something I may never use. Oh and your playing is mighty good too!

    What a difference a good room makes!

    This is really interesting (and coincidentally I've put a new post up on the subject before reading this thread) as I've been experiencing low frequency weirdness every time I play a b note on the low E and A strings so I may have to consider some acoustic treatment in the room.

    A remarkable coincidence?

    I swear this is absolutely true. On the very same day I loaded Quantum b1 I was suddenly a much better guitarist than before, noticeably improved feel and tone in my fingers, and all of my guitars sounded and played way better than ever. It's really weird? For all I know I could be a sex...

    Small wish?

    Now I understand the reason for the behaviour it makes sense to me. I only use simple presets and routing where the first block is 1 and the second (if ever) is 2.

    Small wish?

    Thanks Rex. I'm definitely in the NON power-user category. Interesting stuff though.
  86. Coldsummer

    Small wish?

    Oh OK, well that just shows my lack of knowledge/understanding!! I thought it always went in order of 1 then 2 where 2 would be used if 1 had already been inserted. Yek would you mind explaining when and why you would use block 2 instead of, or before block 1?
  87. Coldsummer

    Small wish?

    When inserting a block and scrolling down the drop-down menu would it be possible for the choice of block 1 or 2 to come up automatically when hovering over the required block so it's a simple click to choose rather than having to scroll over and physically select the 1 or 2? In other words...

    That wasn't to my taste. Only kidding, I thought it was great, excellent riffage, great tones and a good groove. Makes a nice change from all the metal stuff. BTW, I like the clarity of the solo tone at the end, do you mind me asking which amp model you used?
  91. Coldsummer

    Recommendations for full-bodied clean solo tone?
