    Wish Interchangeable preamp tube “slots”

    I spent the entire day today trying different preamp tubes in different slots on my 5150 and Dual Rec to see what effect it would have on the tone. I had TAD, Gold Lion, and Tung Sol 12AX7 tubes and was shocked by how much swapping a single tube changed the tone and feel of the amp. The most...

    Why Fractal is good for my sanity... and my wallet.

    I’ve been an avid Fractal user for about 6 or 7 years. It always sounds good. When I turn it on, I always get consistently great tones and feel inspired to play. Sometimes people write about buying real amps because they love the models so much and now I’m one of those people. I love the PVH...

    For the shoegazers out there.

    I just wanted to make something heavy and dreamy with baritone guitars in drop A with way too much gain. This is the first time I've quad-tracked guitars in a long time, and they're angry about it. Enjoy!

    Amp Block “Low Input” mode

    I remember when Input Trim used to be laid out where 1.00 replicated “High Input” and setting it to 0.50 replicated using an amp’s “Low Input.” Now it’s set up at 0.00 dB with a 20 dB range of gain reduction/boost. I’ve looked at the manual, but can’t find where to set the parameter to...

    Wall-O-Guitars and a recording tip.

    Even though I use the Axe-Fx III every day (literally), I’ve also been incorporating real amps with the Fractal X-Load back into my rig (ones that aren’t found in the unit) and have discovered some things that would be cool to see in the Fractal. 1. The ability to change V1 and Phase Inverter...

    Can an amp’s tone change if...

    Can an amp’s tone change if it’s in a head box or a combo? This is gonna sound like an Eric Johnson claim, but I recently bought a Mesa DC-5 Dual Caliber amp. The guy had two of them, one in a head box and one in a combo. They’re different revisions so they sound sound like two different amps...

    What are your favorite Fender models? (Free IR and Preset)

    I’ve always been partial to the Deluxe Reverb models, but lately felt like branching out. The 5F8 Tweed and 59 Bassguy have become a couple new favorites. What models have you guys been liking lately? Edit: Attached Preset and IR. If you use the IR with your own presets, make sure to set the...

    With everyone social distancing, self-isolating, and now quarantined, it's a good time to stay home and be creative. Since these are strange times, I wanted to try to write something a little strange too to get out of my comfort zone, so I chose new drum sounds, new bass sounds and technique...

    Recently, I met a producer in town and saw that he had a Mesa Dual Caliber DC-5 in the corner, which is an amp I’ve always been curious about, but have never been able to get my hands on one. The Axe has kept my amp GAS at bay for years, but he was kind enough to let me fire it up... it blew my...
