    Holy smokes, that was refreshing. Could definitely hear the Holdsworth/AaL influence. Great work.

    Probably lost my Axe FX II and my MFC101 :(((

    Oh, dude, I am so sorry to see the sheer devastation and loss of your gear. Do you know what caused the fire? If it was no fault of your own, the band space build owner may be liable for damages to replace your gear. I appreciate that this is in Germany and not the UK, but surely you have some...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Public Beta #2

    Hi Cliff, I don't know if you saw my post asking about making your own schematics by measuring the component values and circuit paths. :)

    Mesa Tremoverb ?

    IIRC the gain/dirty sounded different to the other Rectos. It had a snarl about it that I can't describe. No idea what was going on under the hood. I ran one for clean and the other dirty/lead. I remember the sound guy moaning that he had to mic up an extra guitar and wondering why I didn't just...

    Can confirm. I used to run 2 Trem-O-Verbs before I went to an Uberschall/Twin setup. Lovely amps. They are soooo hard to get nowadays

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 7.00 Public Beta #2

    @FractalAudio, Cliff, forgive me for asking.but if you have the actual product in front of you, there's only a finite number of components to a pedal (amps obviously have hundreds/thousands). Can you not draw your own schematic and measure the component values for an accurate representation...

    As a Brit who has been listening to BS and Ozzy since birth, you did that song more than justice. That was infuckingcredible. Your singer has the mannerisms and everything down; it's uncanny.

    Symphony X - Serpents Kiss(FULL COVER) Energyball/CP19

    Man, I haven't listened to Symphony X since The Odessey. That verse riff was so damn groovy, it reminds me of Lamb of God. That was a stellar cover, great mixing and very tight. Don't ever let go of that singer, there's lots of character in his voice. What do you think of the GGD pack...

    I bet you cannot match this tone

    In my experience, even if you *did* tone match his tone 100%, it would never sound the same because there is only one Andy Summers. I would much rather watch a solid performance of MIAB with 90% tone match than a shoddy one with 100%. People spend years obsessing over emulating X person's tone...

    Scar Symmetry- Noumenon and Phenomenon solo --Patch included!

    I love gems like this. So refreshing from usual metal videos that I see. Excellent playing, phrasing and tone. Wasn't harsh in the slightest and your technique is breath taking. Definitely one of the best videos that I've seen in a long time, plus I love SS and Per Nilsson. Great job.

    Why I won't be using the cab block for recording any more

    I guess that this explains all those people who went back to FW 15, citing that they preferred the sound over FW 18. I can't believe that nobody else has picked up on it, myself included. Perhaps these people will now give FW 18 and the G3 modelling another chance.

    Scott, can I ask and this is purely out of subjective taste.... Your tones seem a little "bright" and heavy in the 3-5kHz range. Does this translate well at gig volume and with the other instruments? I've always favoured less treble and more upper mids, as I find that i fits well with other...

    You need to remember that synchronising schedules between a busy touring artist and Cliff's right hand man having time to drive up to Johns house to collect the amp is difficult at best.
