    Axe FXIII with Mesa Boogie 50/50 and 2x12 stereo Mesa Boogie Cab

    I’ve used the axe in several different scenarios with varying results. First time I owned one was a 2 and I used it with a Randal RT250. The tones I got out of that set up were the best imho. The other ways I’ve used it are with a matrix power amp (solid state) through both frfr and...

    Why is there no "Axe-Fx IIl Tone Match" section in this forum?

    Thats why I wonder why there has been advice about performing the tone match in a particular room. Whats the difference? I’m sure there is something to be gained from room reverb but what would it be? It seems like a filter wouldn’t have the ability to capture the nuances of reverb.
