    Living on one preset - is it wrong?

    I have my main live kitchen sink type preset with 8 scenes, that does all my gigs. I play around with others for fun and I use way more when recording, ie. whatever amp works for the track.

    Popping over spdif

    Make sure both units are set to 48Khz sample rate. Set the iD22 to external clock and select spdif as the source, also make sure the axefx is set to output spdif. If clocked correctly the status light should be green? I think on the iD22. No guarantees though when using an unknown box converting...

    Austin Buddy / York Audio Collaboration?

    I thought about this a little more, we can do that now by buying the York Audio and Austin Buddy then there is all of both, presets and IR's. Plus I couldnt see Austin Buddy doing presets that dont mainly utilise the stock IR's, which are great as well. Just some thoughts.

    Ideas for first DAW?

    Put all the names up on a board, stand back 3 Metres or so, close eyes, throw a dart. Whichever name the dart goes through use that, the key is, whichever one it is, learn it really well and you’ll be fine.

    What's your base tone?

    the core tones of my live gigs, recording is different, is the ac20 or a deluxe reverb pushed a littlr, with comp for clean. The bogner blue for various levels of dirty crunch through to higher gain pushed with a ts pedal in front. Mixture of York audio ir’s, for clean, dirty, crunch and lead stuff.

    When I arm a track in Reaper to record, it starts to ‘clip’ and distort.. surely it’s a simple setting issue..?

    you are clipping your input in reaper. The input level of your interface needs to be much lower and/or the fractal output needs to be much lower. Aim for -12dbfs on the Reaper input meters.

    How come that every speaker I play amp or modeler thru it very bright?

    Depending on the size of your room, I would suggest that those Adam A77x are far too large. If the room is not treated I suggest that is a good place to start, otherwise your speakers and room will lie too you. Other than that, in the cab block sweep the LPF (hi cut) to find where it sounds...
