    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 2.00 Firmware Release

    I agree and am almost certain there will be no further updates but to play devil's advocate that post was from April 2019.... this whole Ares 2 thread is from September 2019 haha. On September 29th 2019, Cliff said "FWIW, I'll be porting some of the Axe-Fx III 9.xx changes this week. I woke up...

    It looked way cooler in photos for some reason. In person it was super cheap and gaudy looking haha. It was like looking a shiny glittery print and the fabric was sagging.

    I'd imagine that what we have now is it, pending bug fixes that have been mentioned so far. Cliff pretty much closed the book on other major updates earlier in the thread.

    It sounds better when you relevel it but its way louder than the old model. All my bass patches clip now so I'll rework them for the final release. Can't wait!

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 10.01 Firmware Release

    Various presets & tricks

    Wow. I'll have to try this out when I get home. At first I thought the wide version was the emulated double tracking and the first part was true double tracking. Didn't realize until I saw both patches that they were both emulated double tracking. Great job!
