    Bank of Fender

    one whole bank filled with presets using Fender sims. I made 99% of these presets from scratch, some were posted here already, some were not. This bank includes sounds of 'raw' amp->cab setups, as well as drive pedal emulations and not-so-subtle fx. I'd say it has an overall vintage-y vibe to...

    The perfect use for profiling?

    there is a dedicated monitor output for which you can switch the cab sim off. This could be used to send a signal to a power amp + cab on stage while sending the full signal stereo to the FOH. also you can defeat the cab sim by pressing the 'Cabinet' button on the front, and of course you can...

    How To Record Like Bulb (Periphery)?

    no such thing, sorry. MIDI is a protocoll, nothing more, no sound information in it. channel, note number, velocity, aftertouch, release velocity, yes - even program changes, continuos controllers etc, but NO sound.

    easy, think of the Axe as a an amp. compression/distortion -> put it in front echo -> use the fx loop (unless you want that delay before amp sound)

    High gain thing.

    double track with different cabs that compliment each other. consider putting another track in the middle with an unusual cab, like the 1x6 Oval. Mix it in just a bit so it fills up the frequency spectrum without becoming too prominent. and add bass! (bass guitar I mean, not bass frequencies)...

    Redwirez impulses

    your wording is a little off, here. Both are IRs, the ones in the Axe are most likely mixes. That's the only difference. The cool thing about the Redwirez is, that you can 'adjust' them to your preferences by switching to mics/distances/locations you prefer. For some it's overkill, for others...

    Cry baby feeding input?

    used it with a bunch of Cry Babys. My fav was one I had modded with an Fasel inductor (red I think). then I tweaked the Ultra's wah a bit and have since then never bothered to connect a wah in front. a crybaby doesn't sound better, adds noise, tricky with fuzz pedals.

    How to reduce pick attack noise in 5.0?
