    2 output patch (included) trumpet and light gain guitar

    Hi all, I am trying to emulate a B-side RHCP tune where Flea uses his trumpet skills (this was also sampled for a pop hit by the band Crazytown, which we play a rock version of and goes over really well in bars). The song is here and it starts at :50. I've created a reasonable trumpet tone out...

    Banjo tone needed

    Hi all, I am interested in trying to get close to this banjo (I think it's a banjo) at the chorus of Country Girls (Luke Bryan). Any ideas on how to get close (I understand the III cannot easily and perfectly emulate a banjo with such a sharp attack and release). Thank you in advance,

    Axe FX III Tuner Accuracy
