    Alice In Chains - A Looking In View (Rythm Guitar Playthrough)

    Thanks! I spent hours getting everything spot on. Because I blended my guitar along with the original guitar track, I had to play it exactly the same, otherwise it would sound wrong/off :)

    Alice In Chains - A Looking In View (Rythm Guitar Playthrough)

    Hi guys and gals, I did a playthrough of Alice in Chains' "A Looking in View" I really like this song and it's a very simple yet heavy song. I double tracked the rhythm guitar with the Axe-FX II (TS808, 5150 and Mesa 4x12) I tried my best to blend it in with the actual song. Went quite well I...

    It's been an interesting run

    I bought the Axe-FX II simply because I can't afford having several amps, cabinets, microphones and effect pedals. Don't have the room for it either. I went down to my friends amazing studio one time and did an A/B test with a Mesa Dual Rectifier and a EVH 5150. Compared that to the Axe-FX II...

    Hi guys, long time no post. I've been extremely busy with studying. But I did this track a while ago and I think I forgot to share it. It's basically a cover I did of the song by Breaking Benjamin called Diary of Jane. I've always liked this track since first time I heard it, so it's an oldy but...

    ideal sine sweep loudness when capturing IR's

    Thanks for the replies guys. I did some experimentation today and yes Francesco it does indeed change the IR a little. Generally all of them sound good though :) For me I found out that using lower volume sine sweep increases note separation? Or is it just me? Thanks for the heads up Matt, I'll...

    ideal sine sweep loudness when capturing IR's

    Hi guys, Long time no post. So here goes. I've been messing around with capturing cabinet IRs myself with my Mesa 2x12 rectifier cabinet and so far I've gotten great IRs! So I was wondering, is there a sweet spot on how loud the sine sweep should be? Most people just say, turn it up till it...

    Does the Axe FX come with Pro Tools?

    Pro Tools is subscription based now, so you only get one year support, then you have to pay a annual or monthly fee to get updates. Unless you really have to, I wouldn't recommend using Pro Tools. This comes from a Pro Tools user. I know a lot of people say it's the pro way to go, but you will...

    new Les Paul, what pickups should I consider?

    I have a Les Paul that used to have 57 classic humbuckers. Great stuff, but it wasn't versatile enough for me. I went ahead with a Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz set. A very typical set of pickups but very versatile. I can use that guitar for anything from Metal to Jazz :)

    8/9 string Gtrs, Fan frets necessary for intonation?

    Yeah, 27" to 28" works just great for me anyway. I wouldn't mind a fanned fret guitar though. Ibanez are making one as we speak :)
  18. Rhiza

    Is this a real 75 Les Paul?

    will need more pictures. Wouldn't mind pictures of the headstock and the interior routing. Gibson did print the serial number during the 70's I looked up that serial number, it seems legit.

    8/9 string Gtrs, Fan frets necessary for intonation?

    I work at a guitar shop and I've had discussions about Fanned Fret/multiscale and heavy gauge strings/tuning. It's no wonder that longer scale length gives your strings a tighter tone and makes it sound less muddy, especially low tuned strings. There is a paradox however, longer scale makes...

    Axe-FX II vs TSE & Poulin plugins

    I have to agree. When I was a amp noob I always blamed the amp sims for being bad. Started messing around with IR's and quickly found out that they are indeed everything! Axe-FX is superior in so many levels, but still cool that you can get decent distortion even on a low budget :) A lot of amp...
