    Yek's preset collection (Q9.04, Axe-Fx II XL)

    That's why I was curious, Scene 1 is the DS. Scenes 2-6 come up as the Euro Blue. I like it the way it is now because the DS has been my goto for cleans oddly enough.

    Yek's preset collection (Q9.04, Axe-Fx II XL)

    I just downloaded the new Main file. Are you still using the Dirty Shirley on Scene 1 for cleans? I'm not sure if you still were or if this was something wonky that happened while converting with Fractool. You astound me with your ability to milk so much out of a single patch. Now comes the...

    And speaking of input volume

    The Input Level in the I/O Front Panel Parameter does not affect amp gain, volume level or output and is for S/N ratio. It almost sounds like you are describing the Input Trim in the Amp Block. Can you clarify?

    Cab block proximity control Q3.0b [NOT A BUG]

    Of course, I get that. I was referencing Mr_fender's example pic above where he added the Null mic to show the low end boost. My problem is I'm not getting a flat line at all when the mic is left on None, there is a definite curve (very slight). That's why I wanted to make sure I was doing the...

    Cab block proximity control Q3.0b [NOT A BUG]

    @mr_fender is there any way you, or anyone for that matter, can show a quick pic of what the grid layout should look like for doing a live Tonematch? I only ask because when I did this experiment, I get a small, but distinct curve and not a flatline. It becomes even more so when I add the Null...

    Cab block proximity control Q3.0b [NOT A BUG]

    Chris, I also just noticed this happening on my OH Mesa V60 EWH-1 mix, which is one of the included mixes with this IR. Weird, but maybe this is only happening with mixed IR's. All the ML and Fractal stuff I have loaded is single mic IR's so they are not exhibiting this behavior.

    Well crap.....I should've just left it be and not even bothered, but I did. I definitely can hear an oh so slight difference.

    Glenn Fricker's Opinion.

    I've tried watching his gear reviews numerous times, because who doesn't love a good gear review? But I can never finish. I guess the whole obnoxious rocker thing would come off better if he was still actually in his 20's, but on a 40 something year old man it's eye roll inducing.

    External Effects

    Home practice through PA - floor or stand mount?

    I have my EV ZLX sitting on an amp stand in the corner of my bedroom. I've actually found that not only does this reduce the bass response, but it also has a nice effect of keeping the sound directed towards one area. I can really crank this thing up and it doesn't even make too much noise...
