    It's all about the way you set the EQ

    Interesting. I figured that one day someone would reverse-engineer it and the answer would be known. It's too bad if he was exploiting his position as an expert to sell something that was just an EQ. (that never happens in the guitar pedal world :p ).

    Van Halen 90's Balance Tone

    You're right - I heard Trevor talk about that once. Eddie kinda knicked that riff and he ended up sending some money to Trevor to make things right in a friendly way. Love Trevor's Can't Look Away album.

    A little clip of the main riff to "Outside" from "Reach The Beach" by The Fixx, as originally played by Jamie West-Oram. Using the Fractal Audio Axe-Fx III with a Brit JM45 model, some compressors, delays, and a heaping of Cirrocumulus reverb.

    Best way to use IEM with axfx3?
