    Modern high-gain tones: amp block input drive + drive block vs. only one and not the other?

    Use another AMP with the Power section disabled as the drive. Can't much more gain.

    Take a Plexi 100 and put a Plexi 50 in front of it as added gain stages, but in the 50w turn OFF the power amp portion. Play as you will with levels/EQ, etc. Play with tubes, bias, etc. You too can be Jose! And with the Axe, never worry about the mystical, musical blue smoke!

    It's 2021 and the FC-12 display still looks like garbage

    And I forgot to mention that my Scenes are also very consistent from Preset to Preset. 1-Clean; 2-Rhythm; 3-Crunch; 4-Lead; 5-Scream!
  64. VegasGuitar

    It's 2021 and the FC-12 display still looks like garbage

    Been thinking about this while sitting at my Axe and FC-12, and I believe it is because I use a standardized FC-12 layout for EVERY preset. I "know" what each button is going to give me, so reading the labels is less important. Won't work for everyone, but me be happy!
  65. VegasGuitar

    It's 2021 and the FC-12 display still looks like garbage

    My layout is as you describe, Scenes across the top, 1 to 6, effects on the bottom row, including a press & hold BOOST. Preset increment switches are external to the FC-12, but stuck to the frame.

    It's 2021 and the FC-12 display still looks like garbage

    6' and slightly over half the time sitting in a high chair, barely able to just touch the front edge of FC-12. If I want to hit a switch, I roll forward and then back. But when standing, much further back until I need to place foot on switch. Also, my "Bright" is set to only 75%.
  68. VegasGuitar

    It's 2021 and the FC-12 display still looks like garbage

    II have no issues or problems with the my FC-12 display, and I have to wear glasses. Can't operate a switch from 8' away, and have no issue remembering the layout.

    question for all you IR experts?

    If you duplicate your amp block exactly and then lower Supply Sag to zero, that power section is disabled, isn't it?
  78. VegasGuitar

    So, about those sample rates

    Most likely the higher IR are used by DAW plugin or specialty applications. Offhand I know Positive Grid can use 88.2 and 96 kHz. Most amp modelers are 44.1 or 48 kHz. After unzipping an IR set I delete the ones above 48 kHz as I won't be using them. The IRs and their zips are on a NAS that...
  79. VegasGuitar

    So, about those sample rates

    I keep the 44.1k and 48k wave files and trash those higher. But, I always keep the original ZIP so if I need them at a later time they are handy. No regrets yet, and haven't gone digging for them in a ZIP.
