    PSA - David Hislop's AxeFX III/FM3/OMG9 Presets Are Here (Bethel)

    So ... what are the installation instructions for this? I guess install the preset, install the cabs, go into the preset cabs and point them to these cabs (and it doesn't matter which one goes in either slot)? I'm really surprised there were no instructions with it.

    King's X...Amp and IR?

    Well, this might well explain why Fractal has never modeled it. I always thought it was because they felt other models got close to this. But perhaps it is more that your typical L5 isn't going to give you "this" sound?

    Maybe I need to listen more via headphones, but the Purple Rain sound doesn't seem too far removed from the various Petrucci lead sounds I've heard and tried.

    Where Has Integrity Gone?

    I think companies like Fractal show true heart, spirit, and integrity. It sadly is rare. But when I find a company like that (like Fractal) I am a die-hard fan.

    Most desired tones that you don't already have?

    That is very true. I'm ALWAYS surprised when I hear isolated tracks how they don't sound ... that great. It is how they mix. I wonder if there is something there. Often we are attempting to tone match, or IR a cab. But it seems there needs to be a "mix IR" or something.

    Most desired tones that you don't already have?

    Ty Tabor, early King's X tones. Nuno Bettencourt, Extreme tones. Really interested in the Alex Lifeson tones. Maybe Guthrie tones off his work on Steven Wilson albums. Would love for you to share presets. I'd be willing to buy them. PM me if that might be an option.

    That is certainly true. But I would say any successor to the III wouldn't launch until at least 2020/2021 ... maybe longer ... who knows? The issue always is with technology too. So, if for some reason there is a surge in processors or something, things could change quickly!
