    Poll: MK1 owners, 1024 User 2 cab slots or 32 FullRes cab slots?

    Can there just be two separate downloads for 17? One for folks that are ok with losing the 1000 user slots (seriously, who really uses that many?) and folks that do not want AITR?

    Poll: MK1 owners, 1024 User 2 cab slots or 32 FullRes cab slots?

    It is rare I use more than a dozen IRs so this wouldn't bother me a tiny bit. I'd rather have 32 IRs that increase the potential of the axe than load 1000 IRs I will likely check out once and forget about.

    Bricasti m7 reverb vs the axefx3?

    The Bricasti is a world class Reverb used by many of the highest end studios around the world. It's almost unfair to compare them. Sure the verbs are pretty good on the Axe but it's not going to get you the same results as a world class, purpose built reverb.

    AITR

    Although this sounds pretty cool and would likely be more fun to play when just practicing in the recording studio, I'd likely rarely use them in a mix. I've never sought out that "amp in the room" thing because that is not going to happen when you are comparing playing live through a 4x12 cab...

    Hey all! working on track 2 for my Asteroid Spy project. Sent this off to the singer last night. This one was REALLY fun to write and play. The amp is the Atomic used in various ways with straight forward funky cleans, distortion and fuzz in a few spots. Hope you dig it! details: DAW: Logic...

    Completely lost with Cygnus high gain tones

    yup... for the BE and HBE it works. I usually go 80hz To be clear I am talking about input EQ. I add the bass back in depth or post EQ which is tighter.
  17. erockomania

    Completely lost with Cygnus high gain tones

    yes, BE and HBE were not up to par for me either and they were my faves for years. Once I used low cut anywhere between 500-1000 the low end tightened up significantly and the feel was much less squashed. Now they are usable again but I cannot say they are my faves anymore.

    Cygnus Cameron. Warmoth Strat. Skervesen Bass. Groovy goodness!

    Thank you! Yes, drum programming can be tedious. How I like to do it is just program basic beats for the most parts, write the song out and then program fully once the instrumentation is all there. That is much more fun and allows it to be it's own thing (like a drummer) rather than going back...

    Cygnus and the HBE

    Hey all, for the last several years the HBEs have been my go to for rock and metal. I've always gravitated towards them and they've always sounded great. I'm struggling to get anything usable out of the new version with Cygnus. I know that Cliff mentioned they'd all been updated to a newer...

    How accurate is Fractal's amp modeling?

    I think A is the real amp based on the top end info alone. Extremely close considering the amp is the same exact one modeled.

    Axe-Fx III clean amp sounds compared to Kemper cleans

    My take is that the AXEFX3 tones... especially cleans, which I've always thought were a little lacking, are the biggest improvement Fractal has made since the 2. They are really fun to play. Very responsive. The Kemper are great but you are 100% reliant on the captures by 3rd party whivh can be...

    Very different sound with headphones vs monitors

    Problem with the Axe-Fx II sound

    I'm sure I'm stating the obvious here but the PA speakers are of utmost importance. Mid tier speakers will generally yield less than ideal results regardless of the modeler. The best bet is to dial your patch from scratch thru those monitors.

    How to cut out the mud on palm mutes

    Every pickup is going to have a different EQ curve, but I'd start with a peaking EQ with a couple db boost, relatively narrow Q and sweep it from about 1k up to about 1.8k. You'll probably find that character in there somewhere. HPF at about 80-150hz.
  54. erockomania

    How to cut out the mud on palm mutes

    I find pickups are 50% of it. The rest is patch, HPF and potentially a pedal.

    Metal Riff with totally stripped down yet awesome HBE patch FW9.02 (SD3, skervesen, juggernauts)

    Man, the more I play with FW9, the more I absolutely think it's the biggest step forward Fractal has made in years. It seems speaker drive and compression fixes were the missing link. This is basically a stock patch with OwnHammer Mesa IRs. It has the tubey attack and bite. Love it!

    B7K patch with Dingwall, Superior 3 custom kit and Mesa Lead (fw9.01)

    I've seen that yes, I think it's more the guitars don't work with the bass, likely because of the single coils being used... too close to the bass in timbre. I think the bass for this riff and tone is actually TOO distorted. I would get them to play together better if I either changed the...

    B7K patch with Dingwall, Superior 3 custom kit and Mesa Lead (fw9.01)

    The bass patch is def a work in progress. Plus I was "slappin' da bass mon" during the version for a different texture. I'm not good at that :D Too much sub on here and not enough low mid. I'll tweak a bit and repost if anyone is interested in hearing it.
