    Matrix NL212 Vs Port City 212 OS

    I have an Nl212. Its crazy light weight and sounds good. However i'm considering selling mine. It has something almost "fizzy" going on in the high end that drives me nuts. One of those things that no one hears but me. I A/B'd it last night with my old Mesa 4x12 OS and the Mesa was smoother for...

    JST Jason Richardson Plugin!

    I actually purchased it anyway. It sounds killer. I really love it and its alot of plugin for the money. I tried to re-create it quickly in the Axe and had a hard time. Im sure it can be done, but like you i get tired of tweaking all the time. Thanks for your response, i appreciate it man.

    Can anyone test this preset on their CLR?

    I haven't tested your patch. But i had the same issue a week ago. I took the grille off of my CLR and cleaned all all the nastiness off of the speaker. Fixed my issue and it was exactly as you describe. I guess i shouldn't be suprised since i put my shoe on it all the time.

    How do you find your Matrix FR212 + Matrix power amp?

    Hey there. I started with a Mesa 4x12 OS cab and a Matrix GT1000. Sold the cab and went the FRFR route. I had an Fr212, Friedman ASM and a CLR at the same time. All of them have their pros and cons but i'd say i like the Fr212 the least. To me its dark, and has way to much bass. However its so...

    CLR, XiTone et al., any quieter than the ASM-12 i.e; less "hiss"

    I've had CLR's and an ASM. The CLR is much quieter. Almost silent compared to the ASM i sold. I actually liked the ASM but the CLR was still the better choice for me.

    Atomic CLR Question

    I've been through three FrFr speakers until i got my CLR. I didn't want to like it, but the hype is real. Its hands down the best i've tried and translates well to every venue i've played thus far. I use it as a monitor in front of me and behind me i use a Matrix Fr212 for some stage feel.
  27. R

    Tried the CLR, the Asm 12 and the matrix fr212. CLR is best to my ears.

    The FR Debate Continues! (Matrix FR212)

    The low end is really extended on this cab. Make sure to tread lightly with dynamic depth, depth, and you can adjust resonance like John said.

    Friedman Asm versus 4x12 cab

    I really like both of them. The Matrix is the most cab like Frfr monitor i've played yet. (While still remaining very flat) Both of them are great together and im very happy.

    Friedman Asm versus 4x12 cab

    I have an ASM and a Matrix Fr212. The Matrix handles the low end and kicks me in the ass and the Friedman in front as a monitor. The combo is heaven. I think the Matrix is a tad bit flatter but that could just be my ears. To me the ASM is slightly more scooped and has a bit more high end. Still...

    Finding my IR's to be very bright

    I have a Friedman ASM 12 which i'd say has a slight mid dip. I also have a Matrix Fr212 which seems to be very flat. I think the problem for me is more the listening enviorment and room i tend to dial my patches in.

    Finding my IR's to be very bright

    Im about the same. Using cabpack 13 also and for high gain especially i cut around 5-7000 depending on the amp. Its hard to gauge sometimes. I feel i make patches that are either to dark or to bright. I have a tough time finding that perfect middle ground.

    Who is using dephase?

    I'm new to frfr and have been experimenting with this powerful feature alot lately. For bedroom patches i set it pretty high (5-7ish). But when playing loud i didnt like it that high at all. When i cranked it a gig levels i find it sounds best around the 1.00 area. But thats just my findings.

    Amp/cab recommendation as alternative to FRFR?

    I have a Matrix NL12 cab paired with a Matrix Gt1000fx amp and couldn't be happier. I compared this cab to my Mesa Recto cab and prefered the NL12. Its very neutral, isn't boomy and the highs arent piercing. Hope this helps.
