    Scrolling through IR’s vs moving mics

    I wonder would it be technically feasible and if so in the fractal roadmap to change how ir’s work to be more about dialing in the cab vs scrolling through lists of IR’s. . I firmly believe that the axe fx has the best amp modelling and effects out there, but I find myself more often using...

    Change focal alpha 50 for Adam ax7’s?

    been offered a pair of Adam ax7’s in a part exchange for some gear. Find the focals a little fatiguing. Anyone tried both by chance? Wondering if the Adams would be much of an upgrade from the focal alpha 50’s. Cheers

    what power amp do you use?

    hi Have been enjoying playing through the return on my JVM 410 and playing through a cab. Considering getting a power amp to have that option. Have had matrix a few years ago and also a power station, not interested in either of those again. Usually play Marshall type amps. Don’t mind if...

    Brit silver issue?

    hi Got my ax8 a couple of days ago, so far I think it's awesome! Anyway one thing I was doing was going out to my real silver jubilee, into a load box and back into the ax8 for cab sims and effects. Works really well, but when comparing against the model in the ax8 the amp model sounds off...

    Tone woes, is this possible... Poor electric current impacts sound

    Got an xl last week. Had a mk1 but sold it some time back. As soon as I got it, updated to fw18 beta, didn't like the sound at all. Lots of high end content, lacking bass almost like the cab block wasn't fully engaged (but it was in global settings etc). Went back to 17.04. Sounded better...
