    Live Workflow for Cover Bands - Song Lists vs Complex Presets

    I've found that if you're playing in a cover band scenario with need for many types of tones, going with separate presets for songs is the way to go as switching between presets is very quick and you can keep each preset (fairly) simple. If you're in more of a jam / improv situation and are...

    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 11 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Beta #8

    If you don't own the real amp, then you're not profiling it with any product I suppose. The Axe-Fx already has lots of amps "matched" (at a model # level, not an individual level), and you can furiously tweak them out from those starting points with more "digital organic" flexibility. Bottom...

    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 11 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Beta #8

    Yep, that's pretty darn close to 100% in a mix context. This is why the arguments of profiling/tone matching are of little interest to me - outside of a short-cut aspect (which is a hollow win in the long run), the framework of the Axe-Fx allows you to match anything you want.
