    How do I build a nice, clear proggy rhythm tone

    Sounds like they have some more gain, maybe hit the input boost, and turn your volume down on the guitar a bit, and then pull up when the band comes in.

    How do I build a nice, clear proggy rhythm tone

    Start with one of the mesas mark's series, and add a couple ML stock cabs, 57 and 421 or 121 mic. That's a great album too :)

    Looking for a little help/guidance with my Ibanez guitar

    Cut a piece of wood to fit exactly in the spot between the body and the trem block in the back section, and glue it in. This will be visible to nobody. You will have a lot more trouble getting the neck route just right and all that lined up and fitting. IMHO.

    Pete Thorn's video about the length of an IR?

    RJM Mastermind GT vs. the competition?

    Rack panel with Axe-Fx 3?

    The input from the panel and the output from the wireless go to the switch. Out of the switch goes to the rear input on the axe. So i can just flip the switch and use the wireless or plug in the back.

    Rack panel with Axe-Fx 3?

    Thanks.... No it's a mixer stand I believe, i'll have to find the model number Quik Lok WS-540 . It's adjustable in a few directions. Now that I have my case for my CLR it doesn't sit underneath it at gigs usually, as the case makes it a bit too wide for that stand.

    Why would anyone sell their Axe-Fx 3 if it's so great?

    I personally would never sell my axeIII for an FM3. Small size blah blah.. who cares. I can do boatloads of stuff with the III that the FM3 cant dream of. Makes no sense to me. I'd like to have an FM3 as a grab and go but that's it, it's not replacing anything.

    Announcing the FM3 Amp Modeler/FX Processor!

    Yeah but they are not free lessons are they? they are getting money off the monetization. It makes sense, it's just that it's been overlooked for so long that it's become the norm, now it's getting yanked, and the gravy train is ending for some making a living off it, the butthurt ensues.

    Digging it so far, the presence shift seems to not do what he says in the videos.. he describes it as a way to be less harsh, effecting the top end, what i'm hearing is almost like a deep boost, low end comes in with the presence shift, is this what it's supposed to be doing?

    Still have my neo, just had an ata case made for it so you could say i'm in for the long haul :) Not sure about the sterile comments, i think it all comes down to how you dial it in. Anything can be made to sound crappy.

    Axe-Fx III power conditioner or voltage regulator?
