    Singers suck!

    So my band has a gig at the Sacramento County Fair tonight. We're an originals only band and we have a 45 minute set at 8:30. Our singer texts this morning to cancel because she doesn't feel well... Apparently, she never heard the expression "the show must go on"! Fortunately, I was able to...

    The RCB Boost is great!

    Lately I'm finding that RCB Boost is really doing it for me. Feeding it with mostly default settings into a clean-ish amp provides a nice edge of breakup tone, and moving the Drive up to 10 and bumping the level a bit gets some really organic lead tones, especially with a neck single coil, or...

    Wish: allow Control Switch as modifier source for Channel Select

    I would really love it if there was a way to use a Control Switch as a modifier or "trigger" for block channel Select. I'm not exactly how it would work, but even if it were limited to a "toggle" type of behavior where it could be used to change between 2 channels it would be really useful...

    Example preset for running 2 guitars and a bass simultaneously?

    Hey folks, my band has been booked for a gig where we need a quick setup and breakdown. They normally have bands use their (poor) backline and stage monitors (we are 100% direct with IEMs normally). Last year we ran 3 Axe Fx II units, each in mono instead... And it worked, but felt like it...

    Distorted vs Clean tones when comparing IRs

    Why do distorted sounds seem to highlight the differences between IRs more than clean sounds do? I play clean-ish stuff about 80% of the time.
