    Nine Inch Nails

    From my findings Trent uses Kemper now. But also to top it all off with the show Trent threw his Gibson Es335 so damn high in the air and it just slammed into the stage. Was the most rockstar thing ive seen in awhile

    Nine Inch Nails

    Saw NIN this weekend at Day for Night Festival, and wow was that an experience! Especially in the pouring rain hearing legends kill it. Also just the band was on point. It stills amazes me to this day hearing a band, especially with the guitars and bass going direct.Robin uses an Axe I know that...

    2003 Fender Showmaster

    I just picked up this 2003 Korean Fender Showmaster, and absolutely love it! But I can find very limited information on specs on it. I do know it was fenders last shot at a superstrat before acquiring Charvel and Jackson. I can find most specs from older reverb posts, but nowhere on what pick up...

    Output Clipping

    Well best thing is post your patches on where the clipping is occuring. I am not at home at the moment so I cant but im sure someone will open them up and test them.
  8. Moshermax9

    Output Clipping

    Its digital clipping. You need to do proper gain staging. Here is a link to a thread yek wrote about clipping and it also has a link to a video which probably will help you out https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/about-clipping.47443/

    Position of wireless receiver

    I use a G90 in my rack it sits in front, but I wouldn't see much of a difference if you put it in the back. It has killer range, as someone posted earlier unless you were playing a huge arena you probably won't see a drop out or artifacts.

    Possible blown speaker

    My avatar 1X12 cab did smell burnt at one price from pushing it to hard. Be aware I was using it in conjunction with my 4X12 so my drummer could hear my playing as a monitor.;Now when it was in use sthe cab started to smell burning but not smoke or anything of the sort. I immediately stopped...

    My Journey To Fractal - By Devin Townsend - Part 1+2

    THIS IS AWESOME. The fact my thread spawned the great Devin Townsend to respond, and give an epic tale of tone is amazing. I have been a huge fan for so long, and getting to hear how his rig has evolved is just amazing. Can't wait to see you Decemebr 10th in Houston with Clutch! Also thanks for...

    Pros Switching to Kemper

    I guess I am running off of just live usage in his case. Because knowing devin he loves gear, and would utilizy the axe as much as he can
  13. Moshermax9

    Pros Switching to Kemper

    I think you have hit the nail on the head with that analogy !
  14. Moshermax9

    Pros Switching to Kemper

    I am honestly not going off of anything besides what I have noticed really. I am not going by numbers. I just noticed even fractal players like Devin Townsend who praised it has even switched over. So wanted to get everyones take on it.
  15. Moshermax9

    Pros Switching to Kemper

    I know probbaly posting this on the Fractal Forum might get biased answers, but I really just wanna bring up something I have noticed very recently with some bands. And would like to see what everone thinks about it. So I frequent watching alot of rig rundowns. I like to see what everyone is...

    why is there a limit for blocks...why not 3 pitch blocks or 3 amp or whatever

    First it will be having more than 2 blocks, and then the axe fx will be tweaking you to get a better tone!!!! BECAUSE IT CAN!!!!
  17. Moshermax9

    why is there a limit for blocks...why not 3 pitch blocks or 3 amp or whatever

    Just wanna put in my two cents. Why would we ever need more than two amps running at the same time? I think people are making patches complicated just for the sake you can. When you can get the same result using less, and probably saving yourself CPU. And now in my case I only have ever had a...

    Best DAW?

    Cab Sims Sound Harsh

    Finally had a chance to reply, but thanks everyone for the advice!!! Gonna go up to my practice room tonight and try some of these tips. I'm pretty sure my issue was not using high pass and low pass filters.

    Cab Sims Sound Harsh

    Yea, I am looking for just a starting point. I do recording I guess just never thought about applying how I EQ guitars in my DAW to the Axe Fx.

    X/Y Amps on Scenes Vs Presets for Distortion to Clean

    For awhile now I Have been using just different prests for my distortion and clean tones. Is there a benefit over different presets to us X/Y switching between two amp models?

    Cab Sims Sound Harsh

    Yes its turned on Yea, I guess i'm thinking the cabs shouldn't sound dull, or just not appealing. When I use my Axe FX through my matrix power amp and madison cab it sounds monstorous.

    Cab Sims Sound Harsh

    I have used only the stock guitar cabs , but most of the time when I use them they sound very harsh and thin. Anyone have any tips to clean them up, because I want to start using my axe direct for gigs, but hesitant I won't get it to sound good out of the PA with Cab Sims.

    Micing up a real cab for recording

    Well micing a cab is an art on its own. You gotta experiment with different mic placement. So yea its not as convenient, but its worth it in the long run. You get a killer sound , and gives you experience learning how to mic a cab for future recording endeavors.

    Micing up a real cab for recording

    Actually the variables was what was awesome. We literally just used a SM57 Off Center and a Proximity Mic. Was really enjoyable trying different micing techniques in the real space over using an impulse that simulates different micing positioning

    Micing up a real cab for recording

    I know a lot of people here probably just us IRS and record direct, but has anyone used the Axe with a cab and miced it up for recording. I recently did this with my band , and got fantastic results. Also my setup is AxeFx 2 XL+ -> Matrix GT1000FX 2U -> Avatar 1x12

    Removing Rust for Ibanez Zero Resistance Tremelo

    I've finally been really getting to the down and dirty in caring for all my guitars. (Polishing, fret polishing , condiitoning the fretboard etc ) But I honestly have no clue how to clean up my ZR tremelo on my Ibanez S520EX. I've been pretty religiously using the Nomad products they have worked...

    Dwarfcraft Super Wizard

    So im debating on getting this pedal because even though the axe can replicate alot. I don't see how you can replicate everything it can do especially put a delay with its own fx loops that you can pair with any effect making the delay run through another effect that effects each repeat

    NAILS Tone

    Thinking about it its probbaly v30s because Bury Your Dead toured with this. So just an assumption they are V30s
  36. Moshermax9

    NAILS Tone

    I believe they are Madison symphony 12" speakers not 100% sure I have seen other videos showing them with v30s
  37. Moshermax9

    NAILS Tone

    I guess when I say clarity it has that dirt without getting so muddy nothing is audible. Ill try using the metal zone into a 6160 block with those settings and see how that works.out. Also the Madison Cab I got was actually a cab Bury Your Dead used on tour for sometime
  38. Moshermax9

    NAILS Tone

    I'm look to get a tone similar to the band NAILS. I have done some research in what he uses mostly uses if im right a peavey 6505+ because he is endorsed by Peavey plus a signature pedal by dunwich amps "THe tyrant". Which is basically a HM-2 Clone. I've achieved something similar using the...

    BASS: Tone that CUTS but still holds the BOOM

    Also a suggestion don't just rely on the axe, also try using the tone knobs on the bass as well or using maybe using one pick up louder than the other. Just mix to taste it helps
  41. Moshermax9

    BASS: Tone that CUTS but still holds the BOOM

    I am mostly a guitar player, but I do play bass in bands from time to time and the Axe Fx ive seen cut through a mix with low end. The axe Fx is more than capable of giving you the tone you want. You just have to sit there and tweak it. I honestly prefer to run my bass rig thorugh my 2 4x10 cabs...

    All Eras of KISS Tone

    I wanna represent them as a live band not really them on the records because the essence of KISS was live. And yes you are right Steve Farris was on Creatures :D also if we wanna get technical Bob Kulick recorded a couple songs on Alive 2 I believe as well

    All Eras of KISS Tone

    You very well might be ready with the early stuff. I just always think V30s with almost all rock tone at this point haha

    User Advice? Matrix GT1000FX or FRFR Speakers?

    My rig right now is using a gt1000fx in a 4x12 Madison Cab I dig it and going from my tube amp to the axe it was nice. But I'm looking to going to direct and see how it goes. But it really depends on want you want if you're looking to have a traditional setup or using a full range system. I say...

    All Eras of KISS Tone

    I'm starting a KISS tribute band but we are going through all eras. I'm doing all the lead parts so I need to replicate Ace Frehley, Mark St John, Vinny Vincent, and Bruce Kulick. I believe the basis of most them is just an overdriven Marshall with a cab loaded with v30s, but I wanna see if...

    Axe FX through Avatar 1X12 Sounds Thin

    I've recently got a 1x12 Avatar cab to use for smaller gigs, and bring to practice. But when I was using my patches I usually use with my 4x12 they are sounding thin. I'm thinking I need to redo those patches, and supplement bass in the patches because of the smaller cab. But I would like...

    Matrix NL212 Vs Port City 212 OS

    So I'm looking to get a 2x12 cab and have narrowed it down between these two amps. I've been really interested in the port city amps, but saw the matrix neolight cabs have been getting good reviews. I like that the matrix is much lighter and is ported just like the port city. Does anyone have...

    Matrix GT1000FX 2U Exploded

    Matrix GT1000FX 2U Exploded

    Playing an Axe/FX II Has Ruined NAMM For me

    I saw this thread and wanted to just throw my opinion in on this. Honestly even though I do love my Axe, looking at every amp you see saying axe has it isn't how you should view those amps. I still get nostalgia over playing a vintage amp. Even though my axe has a friedman model its still...

    Single guitar band

    I've seen a lot of people talk about the enhancer. How would I go about running the enhancer, and I know it supposed to widen the stereo field but is there anything else it does that I guess fills out the sound

    Single guitar band

    So let me just make sure I have this right I should run it Fx (OD, Wah) -> Amp -> Fx (delay , reverb , chorus) -> fx loop with the pedal running stereo to the power amp to each cab?
