    Powered FRFR Cabinet for Bass?

    You don't need fundametal at all on low E or B. Most of what you actually hear are the 2nd harmonic and up. Unless you are in like a reggae band where that big, billowy, bloomy phatness is your thing... but even then, you want the PA to handle that and your on-stage monitor to just let you play...

    Powered FRFR Cabinet for Bass?

    Honestly, the K12 (especially if it's v2) is a pretty solid choice for bass. I use one for my projects (AX8 live mostly), going clear down to F# tuning without any real issues. It's not "FRFR", but, that's a tall ask for bass production considering the range involved.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 2.05

    Great choice, Cliff. If you're truly seeking opinions on what could be modeled, please have your people get with me and I'll 100% gladly get you some great options that would be "game changers" and put Fractal on the minds of bass players again. The Model T is certainly nice - and I'm hesitant...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 2.05

    @FractalAudio , et. al. -- as a bass player, and one who has been (overly?) vocal about the lack of new shiny stuff for us lowend folks in Fractal products, I want to say a big thank you for the updated SVT model and the PortaFlex. I don't yet own a III so I can't take advantage of them, but...

    Axe-Fx III Firmware 2.05 Public Beta

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I would love to have a model with the 6146B power tubes, but IME (having owned a late '69 with 6146's) there isn't a blow-me-away difference. Curious if you can clarify -- what channel was used (normal or bright) and where the ultra-hi and ultra-lo switches were...

    BassGearMag AX8 and Helix comparison

    I'm not seeing how that's the case. You have to take a device to be able to have a great UX with an AX8. You don't with the Helix. It doesn't matter if it's a laptop or an iPad, it's one more thing to carry around, hook up, keep updated etc. And it's 3rd party too. Agree with all of this. I...

    BassGearMag AX8 and Helix comparison

    Oh, sure, but that's not entirely different than using a laptop. It's still an external device, which I believe is the point Sean is trying to make. Put simply: Helix = super easy and "nice" to work with directly on the unit itself. Software on PC etc. not so wonderful, but workable. AX8 =...

    BassGearMag AX8 and Helix comparison

    I felt it was pretty good overall, given the amount of time Sean got to spend with both. He got to borrow my AX8 for about 2 months, and had a loaner AX8 for a month-ish. So, enough time to start getting pretty comfortable, but not totally immersed (in either unit). Indeed. I don't know what...

    Apparently all you need is a DI and a compressor for everything bass related ever. No great bass tone has had an amp, cab, or effect pedal added in, ever.

    Not much love for bass regarding amps and effects?

    Sorry, I should've been a touch more clear -- I don't mean the tuner (it does track down to F# fine), I mean when using the pitch block. Anything under E is flaky at best, and under C (B string, 2nd fret) does not track on any of my basses at all.

    I'm not sure I follow your question. The appeal of the Fractal products is that it is "all in" - you have your amp, cab, effects chain all in one spot, one device.

    There is a very limited subset of gear in Fractal products. The third party purchased cabs are wonderful - from Dr Bonkers, OwnHammer, and 3Sigma.

    The III seems like a bass dream machine (or just a dream machine period).

    Would just like to point out that there is already a new guitar amp added to firmware for Axe-Fx III. Of course, no bass amp, and not even a peep about a future of anything new for bass in response to any thread.
  29. selta

    The III seems like a bass dream machine (or just a dream machine period).

    Bonkers bass cabs are THE best for bass in Fractal gear, bar none. 3Sigma had some good momentum and had some pretty OK cabs too, but Bonkers are where it's at.

    I got my invite yesterday, but I'm fairly certain I'm passing on it. FAS has remained silent on bass in their gear, so it isn't worth me dropping $2500 just to have the same thing I already do with my Axe-Fx II and AX8.

    I'm pretty certain I'm passing on it. I spent last night digging through and seeing if FAS has said anything about updates for bass, and there has been nada. It's not worth it to me, right now, to spend $2500 just to have the exact same thing I already have.

    FRFR for Bass

    You rarely want to cover the fundamental. Most of your energry is spent on the 2nd harmonic, so 62Hz for low-B.

    Going to be putting my AX8 setup in front of a lot of bassists today

    A lot of fun was had - I got to play some gear, but as emcee, not much. Mostly stayed near my area, showing everyone my new Dingwall and AX8 setup. Ended up just about 80 people coming through in total. Loads of questions, and a lot of people interested in getting more details and such, so...

    Going to be putting my AX8 setup in front of a lot of bassists today

    I host the annual Emerald City Bass Convention (http://ecbasscon.org), and today is the day for it this year. I'll be taking my AX8 setup and putting it in front of anywhere from 75 - 150 bass players specifically. I have a bit of a demo planned to go through in front of everyone, and then...

    That's a B7K. The pedal we were "promised", then "un-promised", then "maybe promised" to have modeled. It's a pedal I mostly can't live without in two of my three bands, so it has a permanent spot on the pedal board. The cable actually isn't XLR, it's just a standard 1/4" mono cable. Mogami...

    I know what video you're talking about, and it's not even close. I keep my B7K on the pedal board, and try to dial in drive+GEQ blocks to get it, and I can get probably about 80% of the way there, that's about it. I waste probably an hour each new firmware on my Axe-Fx II and AX8, and never get...

    Heh, I just now noticed that you are from Mass. I'm glad BOS is still alive in that series. That's a heck of a hole to dig out of, but not at all impossible. You have a home game tomorrow, so hopefully that is a W to tie up the series. Who is Kurlay anyway? ;) Didn't get to watch the STL/MIN...

    I think some of those calls in the BOS game were a little ridiculous. I only watched both OT periods... but I think the "goalie interference" was a stretch. I can kind of see it, but, I don't think Anderson was actually interfered with, all things considered. Bigger than that, though... wtf on...

    I will say that to me, it's definitely transparent enough for what I do, and it takes EQ changes very well. I run tones all over the board with it - grindy/aggressive to silky smooth to reggae-esque fat, and it does all pretty well. It's a workhorse and really surprised me in its ability. I...

    It's the QSC K12. I have B, Drop-A and F# basses. That green one bounces between B and Drop-A, and then I have another Dingwall for F# tuning. For what we do (metal / hard rock) it works wonderfully well at either rehearsal or gigs. We always have great FOH support, so I just need it for stage...

    It'll be interesting to see how it is done (assuming it gets modeled) for sure. Helix managed to incorporate it fully. I'd prefer it if they could incorporate them right into one model, but that may not be possible in the current code base. It seems that everything that has that kind of...
