    Just saw Coheed and Cambria

    Awesome. I've seen them three times, the first time in 2004? I think they were using Mesa's at that point. Amazing band.

    Just saw Coheed and Cambria

    Just saw Coheed (as well as Taking Back Sunday) in Miami and they sounded incredible. Their floor controllers almost looked like AX8’s but I’m not positive. I know they used to have Axe Fx Ultras, just wondering if they’re running Fractal live still.

    AustinBuddy possible Bass Presets for the Axe-Fx III - what do you want to see?

    I don't own a III yet, but it would be awesome to see ANY bass related work being done for Fractal products. That being said: Cory Murchy from Minus the Bear always has sweet sweet tones.

    New XiTone cab

    Ordered this guy a while ago and just received it today. Working with @MicFarlow was a great experience and would definitely recommend his products. I started my Fractal journey with an Alto TS112A that has served me well, but I wanted to see how the other brands compared. Wow. After playing...

    BKP Abraxas vs. Crawler

    I am thinking about replacing the pickups in my Suhr Modern Pro HSH and contacted Bare Knuckle regarding their recommendation. The representative I spoke with recommended either the Abraxas set or the Crawler set with an Irish Tour in the middle position. From what I understand the Crawler set...

    Aaron Marshall Intervals Mid-gain Tone

    Awesome. I do have those IR's. I was reading somewhere that he uses real cabs live for stage volume at least - not sure if he is going direct or micing cabs like he was a few years ago. He has custom Mesa cabs with V30 and cream back right now.

    Who's Planning To "Eventually" Move Up To The III?

    I will buy one the day I have the funds available. I am a little over a year away from graduating from dental school, when I get my first paycheck I will be throwing money at Fractal (and my student loans) instead of BMW or Audi like my classmates. In the meantime I am extremely satisfied with...

    Haha, okay cool. Thanks for the information. I will try to post a clip if I am able to get any closer. I was just browsing the Yek PDF and realized I forgot about the Friedman Smallbox too - I will give that a try as well.

    Aaron Marshall Intervals Mid-gain Tone

    Thanks, I will try that out. Sometimes there are so many amps in here that I just don't know where to go. I just re-downloaded Yek's amp model PDF so that I can read up on some things I haven't tried out yet.

    York Audio Presents: The Bipolar Pack

    Duuuuuuuuude. I had to stop playing to come post. Okay so, I have only tried the first couple of mixes for each cab...and they both significantly improved my tone on existing presets without tweaking a single setting. This is insane man! I hadn't really found a single Mesa IR that I enjoyed...

    Jimmy Eat World switched to Fractal

    My buddy who is not a huge fan of the Axe Fx or any modeling saw them last week and told me that they sounded perfect. "Every guitar tone sounded like it was straight off of its album". I was so pumped to send him this video.

    I have a guitar up on there now. I had a pedal that I had been trying to sell for over a year, put it up yesterday and it was sold within 10 minutes. I like it so far.

    John Mayer Tone

    I don't personally find that to be the case. Before I made the purchase I found a lot of really good reviews for the Altos and few terrible reviews. I took the chance and I haven't had any issues. I did have minor discrepancies (nothing bad, just different) between the Alto and my monitor...

    Nice stuff! I read most of your other thread, but didn't really feel the need to chime in at that moment. I was just going to say that, while I do play mostly through my monitor speakers for recording purposes, I play through an Alto TS112A when Im really wanting to feel like I am playing...

    Nice work. I really dig this mix, thats an amp combo that I need to try out in the near future.
  61. NickCapp


    Thanks, I'll try those changes! I find that most of the bass presets I've found on the forum are INSANELY complicated. On this clip I just took the citrus 200 into two OH AMPG IRs and got decent results, but knew that I needed to go more in depth to get it to pop.

    Ultra Owner thinking of the big upgrade to the Axe Fx II XL+ -- Lots of questions!

    You won't be disappointed. If you cruise the Axe Fx II recordings you can find tons of stuff that will show the styles you mentioned above executed very well. I personally love the AC-30/DC-30, Fender Deluxe, Friedman amps, and Bogner Shiva models for the styles you've mentioned.

    Recording some black metal. What to use?

    This is true. It has mostly to do with the types/styles of riff that are predominant in the music, but also to do with the type of vocals, and the overall mood of the music.
