    Part III included because it's got just about my favorite Jeff Beck solo ever (starts at 1:47-the lick at 2:40 gets me every time).

    Kind of agree on the two albums that came out after that. Real hit and miss. But they put out an album on MCA in '98 that was really good.

    What’s the number one most impactful control in the Fractal family?

    I think your input trim setting really depends on your guitar, so scenes with different settings really wouldn't help much in the overall scheme of things. For me, your ears are all that can tell you where the input trim should be with a given guitar/amp combination.

    There’s only one weight shown for all the speaker sizes as far as I saw. Makes me wonder how accurate it is. Maybe just the weight of the cab sans speakers????

    There was a Fractal user gathering in Dallas about a decade ago that I drove up and attended. Jay was there and from his forum demeanor I expected to not get along with the guy at all. He was actually quite personable as well as informative. Enjoyed the few hours I was there with him.

    Has it really come that far?

    Here's one factor I would consider. When you say you have your sounds "dialed in", how many sounds/presets are we talking about? A couple dozen? A whole bank? Multiple banks? If it's less than 30 or 40, I would say it's a no brainer to dive into the new technology. If it's more than that and...

    Your flavor of “ghost notes” can add character. I remember this debate on a L6 forum waaay back in my Vetta days. There was no character to those “ghost notes”. And you certainly couldn’t get rid of them if you wanted to.

    RTA always on

    It would be wonderful to have an RTA in Axe-Edit like the amp leveler on a page of its own not tied to a preset. I’m sure it’s been wish listed before. I’m just having too much fun with the new presets to look and see right now! 😊

    Bug? Bias Excursion Time Doubles on FM9 vs AXE-III

    Bug? Bias Excursion Time Doubles on FM9 vs AXE-III

    The FM9 hasn't gotten the added tube types yet, but I don't think that is the issue because I just looked at the AC-20 on both units which have the same tube type and still have the doubling issue. And yes, pedalbuilder I did run into those 20 second reverbs a couple of days ago on the FM9!

    Not sure if this is just me or an issue, but I have noticed that when I compare amp settings between by FM9 and Axe-III the bias excursion time value on my FM9 is double the value on the Axe-III. If you do a channel reset, it will change to the value on the Axe3 but doing the refresh after...

    Larry Carlton Farewell Tour : Pat Metheny SideEye..my return to Live Shows!

    Yeah, the only thing that disappointed me about this last show was that he had been advertising the show as heavy on Steely Dan, Crusaders tunes, and songs from that first solo record but he played nothing from the latter. That album is a monster. Until he opens his mouth to sing, of course. 😜

    Because they have no reason to be pompous. They suck. :D Slightly harsh but mostly true. IMHO, of course. I do have an affinity for Suite Madam Blue, a couple of tunes off G. Illusion and Lady, But by the time they got to Pieces Of Eight I started calling them Stynx.
