    Why there is something, rather then nothing?

    "Candor" is not something one can stoop to. "Condescending" implies it's not well deserved. "Dark Energy and Dark Matter …." Sentence fragment, consider revising. "Physicists are petitioning and calling for it’s abandonment…" Again, show credible published evidence of this. Yes, I still want...

    Why there is something, rather then nothing?

    It's not condescending. "Tone" is an audible quality that cannot be conveyed in written format. What I intend to convey is my displeasure that you are writing what you are writing with an air of false authority and I am pointing out that what you have written is not only factually incorrect...

    Speaker drive and compression - what value is closest to the real thing?

    The defaults especially for combo amps represent the actual amp used to create the model with the default factory IR in the factory preset.

    There's nothing specifically that drains the battery.

Car battery packs (even Teslas) just become less efficient over time as the cathodes and...

    FM3 Gen 2?

    Honestly assess your Axe II presets. There’s probably so many redundant parameters that, if you approach blocks, scenes and presets efficiently, you don’t need to wait for an upgraded FM3. Unless you have presets that depend on multiple amps or cabs (again, ask yourself why), you’ll be well...
