    I'm so amazed by my new Matrix GT1600FX :-)

    I just got my brand new power amp from Matrix. I'm blown away by it's balls. I used to love my GT1000FX but this new amp has some additional fattness/juice which I love. I use it with my Cornford 4x12 and 2x12 cabs. I love it! Thanks Andy for designing a great piece of gear an thanks Cliff again...

    User Advice? Matrix GT1000FX or FRFR Speakers?

    I tried few solutions..and so far I prefer my Matrix GT1000FX setup with my Cornford 2x12 cab...I gues this sounds the best/realest/closest to real tube amp :-)

    Jim Root playing AXE live!

    His rack looks exactly like mine with GT1000FX Matrix power amp at the bottom of his rack 4U unit.. I can tell by this violetlight in the middle of power amp..Even two top blue LCD looks like mine Audio Technica wireless and MEI100 by LD system :-)

    All I know now.. I didn't like it in original box, and I like it now..To my ears everything sound better guitarwise, tone etc..especially low end response is more open..Overall sound is less equed,if you like..less digital..warmer and rounder..One thing I know I couldn't replace my previous...

    Just got my first RCF NX12 SMA

    I played with my new RCF NX12SMA for few days,and what I've found is : 1.I like the amp and coaxial speaker (it's real 700 watt of clean RMS power !) 2.I don't like original RCF enclosure in sense of replacing the real,good guitar cab feel and sound (sounds to small at low end to my taste..it's...
  31. mrpollack


    Thanks:-) That's right..Matrix sounds cleared and punchy..As I said..in my case it depends on day and mood what I prefer..I seems that both amps are in the same league :-) I just received my RCF NS12SMA ! Running to tests and all of it... jacek

    Wish One second or so..faster Tuner angage on Tap button

    I'm with you Cliff :-)..The other day I fired up my Splawn Stack to check if I'm not mistaken using Axe Fx...No way ! Back to amp closet at my studio LOL :-)
  36. mrpollack


    Don't get me wrong guys ! Matrix sounds great ! I just say about some little details in tone.. I enjoy both amps very much..and change them depened on mood/day etc.. There are sometimes days when I prefer Matrix over VHT very much :-)
  37. mrpollack


    Most of time I use my Cornford 2x12 V30 (I made it 1/3 open back)..Sometimes on bigger gigs Splawn 4x12.. Also lately my DV Mark C212V..liteweight great soundung vertical 2x12 cab !

    I own Matrix GT1000FX and VHT2502 and lately I just switched back from Matrix to VHT and I enjoy it.. Both amps sound great...but there is something magical in tone with VHT..

    Had my first outdoor gig with FW7

    I just came from my biggest in this year open air show (huge PA and great stage monitoring)..When I turned my Axe FxII on , and made some sound check with my band,for the first time in my Axe Fx history, I even didn't think about switching my power amp and cab on(no cab simulation on my out 2) ...
  45. mrpollack

    Which monitor to go for?

    I just ordered RCF NX12SMA..All guys using them are very happy..So I hope will be as well :-)..

    Tuner: do you want the magic ball removed?

    I like this ball..Greater precision etc.. :-)

    Axe II and Matrix GT1000FX = GREAT !!!

    Cause when you you use in your chain FX Loop send, the sound before Cab simulation goes to out 2 as it should :-)
  48. mrpollack

    OK, I'm In

    I use VHT2502 and Matrix GT1000FX to my Cornford 2x12(1/3 open back) or Splawn 4x12 ..Both amps with great result :-) .. I just ordered RCF NX12 SMA to check it out , and if good, go FRFR way..

    Mackie goes coax - new DLM series

    I tried lately one new PA system with class D power amp..And it was totally joke ! You have to divide this 2000 watts by 10..Actually in real life it's about 200 watts due to my experience..

    FRFR Tip: Give yourself a midrange boost

    You are right about it :-) In all my Axe Fx II patches I've got boosted between 650-750 Hz..I play mostly loud on stage with real drums etc..This way I've got my half stack Splawn/Rivera/Cornford sound on stage :-)
  61. mrpollack

    Went Direct for the first time and regretted it...

    That's why I always have my own Yamaha didital mixer on top on my rig ,with ready to go presets for my band for deferent venues..And I prefer small imperfection then " creativity of most sound guys" ;-).It saved my ass many times..

    Rocktron Velocity as a poweramp?

    New V300 1U is totally crappy for me..sounds like a toy..Old one V250 broke down ones on me ,when I made some stupid mistake with cables..(some scratchy pots..yes ..) Otherwise seems to be quite solid for the price :-)
  66. mrpollack

    Rocktron Velocity as a poweramp?

    New Velocity 300 is kind of weak to my ears..I had it only one day and sold it..I guess old 2U Velocity 250 (which I still keep just in case) or old V300 are much punchier and sweeps new V300 out of the table .. I'm not sure that any SS power amp will sound better then your 5150 Amp power...

    It's Not a Tubes Only World Here ~ What Tube Amp Did You Keep??

    I will keep my Splawn Nitro... I'm endorsing..if you know what I mean ;-)..Anyway great,punchy amp.. But man..last weekend gig..I was so high with my Axe II and Matrix power amp to my Cornford 2x12 cab setup ..So much tone..so much punch..so much feel..I can't belive my ears ! I LOVE THIS GEAR !!!

    Axe II and Matrix GT1000FX = GREAT !!!

    Actually SAG = 0.01 makes huge deference from SAG= 0 at least in my case...Looks like it's switching on something nice sounding in my Axe.. You are right about playing show and loving your sound..That's why I love Fractal and Matrix so much these days :-)
  85. mrpollack

    Axe II and Matrix GT1000FX = GREAT !!!

    Exactly..It's a little darker than my VHT2502 or Splawn ( with presence turned up) so I had to boost some higher frequences on my global EQ (out2) My SAG is set to 0,01
  86. mrpollack
