    I made a response to Rhett Shull's video

    I would say this, a touch interface with a good UI is just faster and more intuitive, this is a fact. In my experience right now Headrush units have the fastest and simplest of touch interfaces, after trying the QC for a week the UI has a long way to go, logical things where not implemented at...

    NGD Suhr T with a Twist!

    oddly this set of Suhr pickups sound better than another same T set I have. Yes, the bridge is punchy and dynamic and the neck is fat, clear and articulate.

    Thanks to the guys over at Ish Guitars for making this happen I was able to snatch this unusual Suhr T.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 17.00

    With Fractal you get used to the pro level of everything, from the sounds to the interfaces and the people behind this amazing brand. You can try other things, but nothing feels like a Fractal product.

    Ooooh... Charts and Graphs Redux

    I`ll tell you this guys, I could not capture drive pedal, tried with a Clone, Prince of Tone, a MESA, Morning Glory and always the same thing, a low frequency that was capture, unusable. Don't know what I was doing wrong but I was following the capture procedure.

    The EQ block is cool as it looks like your topical DAW eq, but its limited and not as powerful as the Fractal ones.

    Ooooh... Charts and Graphs Redux

    I have ended my 1 week test with "the new" thing and this is an issue, it gets even worth with 4 capture blocks and almost no one is talking about this at all.

    So, you are looking are 50+ watts right? Friedman and Suhr PT100 are more related in tone than MESA, the LP2C+ is a true monster tone machine, i love it and thanks to its 3 channel, 2 EQ + MIDI it would be my choice.
