    Axe-Fx III 16.00 Beta 12 "Cygnus" Firmware - Public Release Candidate

    Hey mate, my metal chops are pretty much vanished and I don't have a detuned guitar to match the sound but I think the 5150 fuzzy character you're after is pretty much achievable with the Axe Fx. I don't like this sound to be honest but it seems to fit (I think we're also both Italian)

    This is not yet implemented to the Axe Fx III, am I right? It will be on the next Cygnus release I suppose. PEQ option is awesome BTW I think that the presets thing is regarding having some "presets eq setting" to swap when needed. This would be very handy when playing in different...

    Thanks! They are amazing guitars and the switching system is actually pretty cool. The neck isn't THAT fat to be honest but it feels too weird to me. I thought it would have grown on me but I still find more enjoyable to play my cheaper RG premium (even though the AZ sounds WAY better).
