    Mesa Mark IV vs Triaxis models

    That just helped out tremendously. I don't often find myself using controls outside of the authentic tab, which is why I was questioning my choices here. This combined with lowering the first drive control just nailed it for me. Thank you!

    Mesa Mark IV vs Triaxis models

    4.0 on both I tried that and the curve that comes preset as the 2x12 recto actually is giving the best results right now. (Makes sense, since I'm using the real one) I'll still experiment with this in the future though! I think I might've discovered my issue here. Of course user error as I...

    Mesa Mark IV vs Triaxis models

    I'm a huge fan of the Mark IV amp (if that wasn't obvious lol) and every now and then I try to dial up the Triaxis "USA Pre LD2 Green" models since that is based around a Mark IV sound. I'm not sure if there's a huge user base for these models, but hoping someone can help. (@2112 and...

    Layouts

    This. I set up my FM9 in a way where the top 3 switches are Effects (hold is presets) Scenes (hold is looper) and Tap Tempo (hold is tuner). I programmed it so those 3 buttons remain consistent across every single layout, meaning only the bottom 6 buttons change. If I need more options, I set...

    I'm using a tube power amp with the PA modeling off in the Fractal. KSR PA-50.

    I went on YouTube to look something up and then saw a nice thumbnail from Leon Todd that had just been uploaded. Watched the intro to make sure it was real and then headed over here!

    Appreciate that. Any input on the question in the post regarding the volume setting?

    @yek I've seen you've owned both units for a while and probably have good advice in this area if you don't mind!

    Matrix vs Seymour Duncan PowerStage (Volume Setting)

    I've read multiple times that Matrix power amps start using their full potential and sound best when you set them around 2 or 3 O'clock. Discussed in threads like this - https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/metallicas-latest-rig-rundown-has-an-interesting-nugget.130918/ Does the Seymour...

    Any cab users with advice?

    Just chiming in one more time in case anyone comes across this thread in the future. Might help someone out and save them a bunch of time. My comments about using the imp. curve turned out to fail me when I went remotely above bedroom volumes. The KSR PA-50's "hifi" switch does NOT act like a...

    Any cab users with advice?

    The OP is not having that issue. His situation was not getting the same results from a real amp/cab vs the Fractal into a neutral tube power amp (into that same cab) - My guess is that it had to do with the speaker impedance curve.

    Any cab users with advice?

    Old thread @GodOfThunder but figured I'd chime in as I was searching for other people using the KSR PA-50. Are you still using it now? I saw you had listed it for sale at one point on here. I found setting the speaker imp. curve to resistive load sounded dull as well. I went with the 2x12 Recto...

    Yep, none of that haha. Just pointing out the differences between the marketing posts and email responses. Definitely is what it is at the end of the day and we'll all get one eventually!

    Yeah, I'm not sure how "The FM9 is now shipping to customers on our waitlist!" translates to people who signed up within minutes being told about waiting months or till next year. It doesn't add up, so maybe there's just miscommunication somewhere.

    Assuming this is accurate information, I came across this post on a thread that started pretty much right when the announcement happened - "I got on the list about 3 minutes after this thread started.

    Which amp sealed the deal for you?

    I swear when I dialed in the Friedman Brown Eye for the first time, I said "that's the one! right there!" and I haven't looked back since. Which amp has made you do that? and post any clips of your best tone if you have one. I love hearing what you guys come up with!

    Any big Dream Theater fans on here? Share your story and thoughts!

    Also, just wanted to share that I own a pretty cool piece of DT history. Anyone remember when Live Scenes from New York just happened to come out on September 11th with the album art work being the twin towers in flames? As soon as the planes hit, they had all of the CDs removed off the shelves...

    USA IIC+ VS USA Pre LD2 YLW

    Yeah, it didn't even phase me to think about the power amp section for some reason! That's a very good point. Thanks for that link man. I was thinking it would be a 2:90, but I guess Cliff preferred the VHT stuff! Still sounded killer.

    Any big Dream Theater fans on here? Share your story and thoughts!

    Here's a little back story because I'm pretty bored right now. I've been listening to DT since I was born in 1993 when Images and Words came out. I'm 20 years old now and I've just always been a prog rock kid at heart from my father who was the biggest DT fan ever. (he passed about three months...

    USA IIC+ VS USA Pre LD2 YLW

    Update, tried out both with the same exact settings. The triaxis seems to have a bit more gain and presence while the actual IIC+ model (both normal and bright) have more low end. Not sure how that works out because I've never owned either, but it'd be cool to learn more about these two if...

    USA IIC+ VS USA Pre LD2 YLW

    Okay so clearly the USA IIC+ is modeled after the Mesa Boogie mk IIC+, but the USA Pre LD2 YLW is modeled after the Triaxis yellow, which in the triaxis manual is the mk IIC+. I'm about to compare the two later on tonight when I'm near all of my equipment, but that just got me thinking, are...

    Magetic to Piezo/Mag blend? Needing suggestions.

    If any of you have a JP guitar or any kind of setup that you're running with a piezo, try and shine some light my way on this. I'll try not to word this confusing either, so sorry if I do! Ever since I've picked these kind of guitars, I've found myself not wanting to play on the clean channel...
