    Has the Ax lll shipped yet?

    Ah, the first generation Keystone. It put the P in DSP processing. Usually seen sitting on top of a Crate amp at venues with "roadhouse" or "bar and grill" in the name. Not the best tone maker, regarded more for causing fist fights and custody battles. Of course a step up from the Light version...
  32. Coil68

    Which exact Keystone DSP in the Axe-Fx III?

    Well some people are chip geeks...I really don't care about the price, etc. Chip architecture, process tech, performance specs, etc. are kinda cool, if not underappreciated for all the tech and engineering marvel that can put hundreds of millions to a billion plus transistors on a die and...

    Fractal mugs?

    Awesome. Yep. Revived it good. With all the insane technical and playing talent on this forum, I figured it needed one guy serious about drinkware and merchandising! Also, this mug thing could be some kind of conspiracy, so I need some witnesses in case I disappear.
  34. Coil68

    Fractal mugs?

    That's the one!! He's using it in the new AxeFXIII video he recently uploaded! It lives! (yes - I searched the forum for mug:D)

    Waiting list question.

    Selling gear while it's still relatively new is part of my "it's an investment, kind of" strategy to pay for the next latest and greatest. Usually she doesn't talk me out it. I have to express days of real torment for that to happen!
  38. Coil68

    Anyone else super excited for the III?

    I calmly and logically thought of all the reasons why I don't need it and why it's probably not the best time to buy it (after getting on the waiting list first of course), then just laughed at myself and started shopping for a bigger rack. It's a dopamine thing..I'm cool with it!
  39. Coil68

    Waiting list question.

    The wrong time to find out about the III is lying in bed next to your wife. In a state of shock and euphoria, I told her Fractal did it, turned my laptop to show her a picture and boldly stated "I'm getting it". Her reply.."Go for it" with a tone that spoke volumes about my mental defects...

    I've been using Atomic CLR's at home. I have a CLR MKII neo and CLR MKI non neo running in stereo in an acoustically treated room.

    So true! The supply of inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, also capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters - the heart of the Turbo Encabulator. I can't imagine modeling it. You can hear it, but you really have to know what you are listening for.
