    OMG Those Reverbs

    WOWW Im wondering, is this patch possible with the AX8?
  4. P

    A depressing realization (and unpopular opinion): most of the amps sound very similar.

    So much this!!! And great analogy about the wine also. Two amps may sound the same to a listener but it wont be until you play it that you can FEEL the difference. To me its all about how the amp feels when youre playing. Is it smooth? Harsh? in between? How does it react? Does it have...

    AX-8 Price

    I agree about reaching a certain price point....which is why I mentioned that if Fractal could have they would. I imagine they didn't add it because it would have elevated the price too much. Ill just have to get a mixer....no biggie

    AX-8 Price

    Exactly! denying certain functions because its designed as a live device is ridiculous. If Fractal could have added it they would have I imagine. Trust me, most people who will be buying the AXE8 WILL NOT be playing live (like me). Making a product specifically and only for live use is...

    AX-8 Price

    alright....big question from a living room rockstar How would I connect an Mp3 player to this thing? Or how would I connect my Macbook and play backing tracks through to monitors if it doesnt work as a sound card? Am I obligated to buy a small mixer to be able to set this up or can I connect...

    Cmon man!! at least an approximation of a price!

    AX8 Price Point - At what price do you get upset?

    2K price is too much and not worth it to ME. In that case Id rather buy a used AXE2 at around 1800 (fair used price) Its going to be priced at around 1300-1500.

    Axe FX2 overkill for me?

    Life is short. What if you die next year? You never got to play an AXE2 because you couldn't decide. Buy it, play it, have a beer and be happy. If you die after it won't matter because you've already won

    I'm Just Going to Leave This Here

    Why would this be limited to just a "stage" rig? Thats ridiculous. The product should have all the functionality of an audio interface, usb recording etc. Most consumers would only own this or the AXE2....not both

    It has to be authorized by the Fractal support team once they've reviewed your case. You can't buy repair parts unless they're authorized or else they'll cancel it.

    I definitely think it must have been the last firmware 17.02 as I haven't been able to play it. Power cycling hasn't done the job though...still doesn't boot. I might have to ship it to Fractal which sucks as I live in Panama....shipping to NH is gonna be a pretty penny :miserable:

    What's the worst that could happen ???

    You should be able to get the same sound with the SLO, however the settings on gain, bass, middle, treble, presence, MV, depth will most likely be different. I know you've heard it before but its true.....use your ears on this one. What type of music are you playing? For anything from...

    dizzy ch3- what the heck happened to it?

    I agree that Ch3 and 4 is what made the VH4 famous...although CH4 has always had way too much gain for me to find it useable. I don't really find much use at all for VH4 Ch2 in the AXE2, as there are MUCH better crunch channels available. I prefer the crunch channels to be as open as possible...
  28. P

    dizzy ch3- what the heck happened to it?

    Ok so from what I understand the only difference between the Blueface and Silverface is that the Silverface has more gain on tap and the Blueface is less compressed? Is this correct?

    High gain amp With good note definition.

    Fryette Deliverance 60.....thing is badass.....also try the SLO
  30. P

    Which amp sealed the deal for you?

    once it arrived in late 2012 it was the Bogner Blue and SLO 100. Today its the Diezel VH4, Herbert, Bogner Red and Blue, SLO, both Triptiks, AFS100, BE and HBE....its so hard to choose now!

    Changing amp feel....which parameter?

    I know this must have been explained somewhere but just too lazy too look right now. Sooo.....if I want to make the Bogner Ecstasy Red channel feel tighter for example, what would I need to do? Is it just the Sag, a mix of that or something else?

    Not to be a negative Nancy, but am I the only one not digging the Tucana model?

    I think theres a difference in opinion because of the feel. The OD is much more on the American side of things which it why it reminds me of the Mark series amps alot. I like it alot but prefer the Triptik because of the more british flavor

    With the AXE its really not that difficult to get a reasonable Bonamassa tone Try these amps: 1. Jubillee 2. Tucana 3 3. CA Triptik Classic The patches recommended are great starting points and if you are comfortable dialing in a 2 amp rig it'll get even closer. Another thing that gets me...
