    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 9.03 Firmware Release

    Cliff, I do not know what you did, but I have to say, this update feels really great. Either I am simply getting better at dialing tone with my fingers and the guitar or this update did something to my AXE, because every type of amp ( clean, drive, edge of break-up, hi-gain) sounds great with...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 9.03 Firmware Release

    My initial impression is that especially on fenders and vox type of NMV amps, the highs are sparkly yet smooth and silky. But it was good with 9.02 already so maybe I am just imagining things ... :)

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 9.01 Beta

    Well ... HOLY WOW!!! :) I just tried the Marshalls. Reseted the amp, reseted the cab. I used stock cab 55. And it sounds fantastic. I even cranked everything up. and it still sounded fantastic. The best thing is the bass response - this really the first time when I feel like my low end is...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 9.00 Firmware Release

    What I am hearing is probably due to my ears getting more and more experienced and familiar with the device, but I can actually hear difference between different tubes. Previously I did not hear much of a difference. Also I revisited the console page in cab block and I really appreciate it now...

    Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 9.00 Firmware Release

    hey guys, I do not know whether this was always a standard behaviour, but I feel like the model class A-30 Brt is really quiet now, like not enough volume. Was that always like that?

    Instrumental - Be Flat or Be Gone - blues/rock

    Instrumental piece in Bb (B flat) and G minor (Be Gone). Blues Rock in style, I would say. :) I am no shredder, so it is more about making faces, but even that is a bit disguised by me looking at the fretboard :) A section is based on 12 bar blues and as all music nerds know, melody over blues...

    Rotation of Force - instrumental

    Hey guys, I was toying with my favorite chord progression, which is very simple and I decided to play it in all keys using circle of fourths (hence the rotation of force :) ) so the piece is quite long. But I like it :), so maybe you will too! It is relaxed and it gets a bit more intense in...

    Can't get a good chorus sound with distortion

    This might be completely out of the left field as I was never a huge fan of chorus in general, but recently I used Quad Chorus block and I was quite impressed with how smooth it sounds even with just the default settings. Even with distortion it sounds good. But I have the mix around like 8-10...

    All right, I don't know what it is, but seems to me like the highs are really smooth, more relaxed, do not hurt your ears, kinda silky, bass is not terribly boomy on everything, kinda tighter.

    I played with it last night and I noticed especially on cleans, that when you add a little of transfomer match to like 1.2 and dríve to taste, not really much though, you get this clean tone with feel of a break-up. Also it seems to help with bass - like it is not as boomy as before. Something...

    Fractal Audio AMP models: Supremo Trem (Supro 1964T Dual-Tone)

    I must say, I never listened to any legendary recording done with supro, I just heard about it. I tried the model after this review, and I must say I think I just found a new favorite - it does have a character I don't hear in other amps. Thanks Yek. Way cool of you to do this. Cheers. J.
