    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    OK, would anyone be willing to share a couple of there best clean presets and a really convincing SRV driven preset ? I do not wish to have to go on a Holy Grail search and spend hours and hours sampling, just one nice pushed clean amp being hit with a compressor for a punchy- lively...

    I am just trying to get another decent piece of gear. I am doing honest research .Because I am just a working class full time musician , $2300 it not easy for me to come up with, so it has to be something I will definitely use and bond with for it to be worth the $ to me. Just because a...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    I know Metal & Heavy Rock guys all like the AXE III and I am totally convinced the AXE III can handle that type of music/guitar sounds in all the good ways . I am a variety player. I need the really good breathy cleans with natural sustain. That something that the best Real channel...

    Another XiTone success story!

    I just ordered an Xitone FRFR Active wedge . . . . Got tired of waiting for the Atomic CLR after three months and still no word as when they will be getting in. It is nice to hear that quite a few players that have Played through both prefer the Xitone .

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    Cleans I tend to go for = An original Black face Fender Princeton or Deluxe, Twin, D13 FTR 37, Morgan AC20, Mostly Fender & Vox, then the Cleaner side of a JTM 45 . . . then a Hiwatt Custom 50 /100. If guitar tone was flavor & food texture, I just want it to be as much like Real...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    Of all the comments so far, this one is an explanation that understand. My favorite clean sound on a real amp or Kemper , set the amp to where it is just on the verge of break up or pushed , then hit it with a decent compressor , one that has a blend control as to get the compression and...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    So far , I am extremely excited now. Why.. ?? I have heard no one say the term "OK cleans " " About as good " "Almost as good. " All comments from all styles of players are saying excellent cleans or better than Kemper. I believe it will be less than three weeks and I will be able to...

    I am totally sold at this point and when I make the purchase. I doubt seriously I will even be slightly disappointed. I am, not even thinking about the 14 day trail period anymore. I have heard enough and read enough to know I will get much use and gobs of sounds that will please me out of...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    The Kemper comes with many Profiles already loaded in, most of which were just unusable to me. The Kemper now comes loaded with a Few MBritt profiles . With out the MBritt profiles, my My Kemper would be useless. I do not seek to have dozens of amps. I just want 2 or 3 really good clean...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    To my ears. The Fractal Overdrive , cranked amp sounds seem to be a little less compressed sounding than the Kemper. This is only slightly . I am no ways near rich or even financially stable at times. However, I do not smoke cigs or have any really nasty habits . I am just a working class...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    Hey, there are no stupid questions , , no matter how many smart ass answers they invoke ! That is how we learn. If it were not such a pain to haul and set up, I would be using a couple of real amps . Kind of like an Eric Johnson set up. One amp that gets really good cleans and one that...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    OK < for better or worse here ya go, I am not near the caliber of those who inspired me , but here is my take on some chich'n pick'n stuff. My usual approach to these kinds of cleans are to set an amp just on the verge of break -up / pushed clean then hit it with a Compressor pedal.

    Believe me, anything that cost over $1000 , handle it as it were glass . I tried an AXE FX years ago, did not like the cleans, Fractal refunded my $ with out a hassle .

    I have tried several expensive products in the past , including guitars, and returned the items i just did not like, Some I kept , some I did not. The 1st Kemper I tried, I returned it ! Then due to some helpful suggestions, decided to try it again with some MBritt profiles . I did, and...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    I am convinced enough at this time ! All that is left to do is get the funds up over the next month or so to make the purchase. The 14 day trail purchase protection makes it a NO Lose situation. All I need to do now till i can make the purchase is to study the manual and learn as much as I...

    I am just doing a little extra research while getting my funds together to make the purchase. Going to try to time this where I have a really good idea of what the unit is capable of and how it functions as to get the most out of the 14 day trial. Waiting for both my FRFR cabs to arrive...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    Yea, I could care less about all the geek stuff of how it was achieved , I just want the sound right. A real Clean amp sound that breaths like a real amp. I just want some great raw tones, that is the canvas to start painting on. I would rather not have to go on a holy grail search just to...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    For the most part, at 1st. I will probably only use 5 or 6 amps sounds for most of my gigging. Nice to have a 100. But I will never really need that many. I just want the few i use to sound and feel as real as possible through an FRFR cab and in-ears. Kemper comes loaded with a bunch of amp...

    yea, I saw Brett Kingman (Burgs) doing a Hiwatt and Fuzz DavidGilmore -ish thing on Youtube going from a Hiwatt amp Clean to heavy Fuzzed out sound. That very clip is why I came on here and posted my inquiry !

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    I have the Non powered Kemper Rack . So far, it is the best Channel switching amp thing I have had since I unloaded my Hudge rack set up back in 1994. I saw some clips of Brett Kingman doing gear & Guitar demos on his Axe FX III . I definitely noticed the clean tones seemed better than most...

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    A little over 6 years ago I tried out an AXE FX . I liked everything about it except the clean amp sounds. The Cleans just sounded way too sterile and digital. So i returned it for a refund. My need for really decent clean sounds is why I have also avoided Channel switching amps. So for the...
