    Slammerhead Shark ultra br00tal slamming djenting death metal band(parody) Sample

    I see your point. But its a pretty insulting for me. I me thats some really bad tone and terrible playing. I think all involved just epically lose. The point is for people to like it. I'm not insulting their musical taste. I'm more mocking bands that do this seriously and end up sounding...

    New brand extended and flat response Active Neodymium pickups. Perfect for axe fx?

    If the XR pickups can do what Q tuners can and even exceed their performance it seems like a no brainer for me to want to have at least a pair. And listen to and watch what Q-tuner can do :D http://www.q-tuner.com/demo/OD%20demo%20Super%20High%20Z%20Q-tuner.mp3 So I hope that helps...

    New brand extended and flat response Active Neodymium pickups. Perfect for axe fx?

    I'm not specifically looking for a modelling guitar/guitar pickup. I really appreciate what a Full Range Flat response could do and would plan to use it just as such or with minor equalization to create sounds I would want that lie outside of current guitar pickups. Being able to emulate other...

    Slammerhead Shark ultra br00tal slamming djenting death metal band(parody) Sample

    Oh he didn't. I intentionally gain staged things to sound really bad then went into the amp models I used on the posted presets I made and played "Abyssal Pain Brutality" and "East Block Brutality" and changed a few things to make the amps sound a little "better." I've played with people still...

    OK. So some of my friends here in town in San Diego and some guys from Texas really got that type off music off to a roll probably back by 2006. I saw an unnamed band first playing stuff like that only slower and more hilarious and was like wtf. Somehow It was so bad I thought it was good and...

    You made my day. It's of course indispensable and probably alot more important to find guitar tones that sound good in the sense that they please most people including you're self. So its nice to know I'm doing a good job at making something that horrible universally(until it becomes some fad...

    New brand extended and flat response Active Neodymium pickups. Perfect for axe fx?

    That wasn't my point. It doesn't have to sound exactly the same. Even when axe didn't sound nearly realistic as it did now it was comparable except I didn't have to have a million dollars to spend on all amps and cabs and effects. Of course this would be perfect but I don't know that I wanted...

    Any type of "recommended limit" on axe to audio device cable length?

    Probably negligible. It's still there but I won't be super worried about 20's. More than than and it can get worse just like pedal board suck with too many pedals sucking out your guitar tone. The shortest cable possible is best but as long as you aren't crossing your 20ft cable with a bunch...

    New brand extended and flat response Active Neodymium pickups. Perfect for axe fx?

    I have q tuner and alumitone. Alumitone isn't anywhere near spec this pickup claims. They are effective and fairly clean but lack character. Q tuner is more dynamic and wider bandwidth response and much more clear and surgically precise.

    New brand extended and flat response Active Neodymium pickups. Perfect for axe fx?

    Yeah they make Neodymium pickups for individual strings so you could do that. To bad the axe doesn't have a d25 style connector in back. Could send them all in seperately and perhaps in some future upgrade chise where the signal for each string travels through your grid independantly. And yeah...

    Any type of "recommended limit" on axe to audio device cable length?

    20 will still is still quite a length of cable and it acts as a capacitor and will bleed of some highs. The shorter the cable the better. 20 feet wont be huge amount of signal degradation but if you wanna be really anal about it you can run a 5 foot cable to buffer pedal and then run 20 or...

    Frustrated. Help me dial in a killer metal tone with my Carvin 8 string

    I feel your pain man and I know what you're going through. It's not just axe fx. It's whatever rig you have analog or digital not really being designed for extended range. I have had similar frustrations getting good sounds out of extended range instruments, 8 string guitar tuned to drop e...

    Does anyones Axe-FX II sound this good?

    what monitors or headphones are you using, are you using a poweramp to a cab? How is your room acoustically. There are lots of variables that can make the sound differ. Those are a few bassic things you might want to onsier. Also what gtrs and pickups did they use? What scale length string...

    Anyone using Axe-FX strickly as Effects unit. Non amp modeling?

    This. They'll only get better. What's the point of having the real amp now? I'd rather spend money elsewhere. The tone may not be exactly 100% the same but that isn't a bad thing because the tones I get out of the fractal I think are better than out of the actual real amps now.

    Anyone using Axe-FX strickly as Effects unit. Non amp modeling?

    I can't see why I'd ever want to do that unless I had like a fortin Natas or something really rare and unique that I for some reason couldn't recreate to my satisfaction with axe fx. The 6505/5150 models are way better than the 6505+ that I replaced with axe fx. 6505+ sounded like a washing...

    Hating my Axe FX, any last words before I sell?

    Here is another great example of axe fx at work providing great tone and flexibility. These are my buddies in entrails eradicated from Australia. When they came over here they ran both guitars through one axe fx ultra and it still sounded great.

    Coming Soon

    Oh me oh my. Can you explain how it works as a volume pedal? Do you have to use a volume block or is there something special about it? My concern using volume pedals at the front of the chain before going into axe fx is that when i'm playing high gain music, turning down the volume coming...

    Hating my Axe FX, any last words before I sell?

    Why sell it? It is and isn't plug and play. I can plug any sort of guitar into any of the presets and get something pleasant. I can run a washburn with blackout metal bridge(absurd output), volume cranked on guitar and plug into a delux reverb and sound good. Is it the sound I want? Not...

    Midi pedal Comparison MFC-101 MKIII vs gordius big little giant vs Rjm mastermind GT

    This was initially a no brainer for me especially when mfc was backordered and people were selling the mk 1 for $1200 on ebay. But after several weeks i've been unbable to really find any used and who the hell knows when they will start making them again.

    Midi pedal Comparison MFC-101 MKIII vs gordius big little giant vs Rjm mastermind GT

    I totally agree. The thing is he loves the axe-fx. He was using a pod hd500 for years. Before that he had a madison amp. He loves modeling preamps and between the axe and the pod there is a HUGE difference is quality. He really likes playing out of the axe. It's just we're in a pinch...

    Dry out signal

    I wouldn't do that. I use protools too and have experienced this horrible pain in the hizaz.

Especially if you are doing it...

    Interesting perspective. As they say if i ain't broke don't fix it I guess. Whatever works for you is best for you. I'm kind of a control freak plus with almost 400 presets I prefer to just clear out a patch and start from scratch. I can't explain why. But you make a very very god point...

    AxeFX as preamp for a bass rig

    Good to know. I need to get my own poweramp for my MKII bc right now I use my guitarist's. I'm thinking it would be nice to backline mostly so we don't have to move so much F-ing gear. We run 1 8 string guitar and 1 7 string bass in our band. It would be nice to be able to just plug both...
