    Stephen Carpenter (Deftones) Adrenaline Cab IR Question

    This is one of the cab IRs released by Stef and Kevin (Knife The Glitter). With a modded Marshall amp model the chuggy stuff is pretty good but the single note stuff sounds strange. Is there something off about this cab IR? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Wish Bass Amps, Cabs and Effects

    Would like to see some more amp heads and cabs like mark bass, dark glass, etc and more bass centered effects. Stuff that doesn’t require as much tweaking. How hard is it to give us a sans amp?

    My band finally had its first performance over the weekend, which gave me a chance to break in the new IEMs. in this band I play bass, so, not needing a wah pedal, I repurposed my 2nd expression pedal as a crossfader between my direct signal and the monitor mix, and it worked like a charm. I...

    QC, ToneX and the future of Fractal

    Hi! At the moment with the Quad Cortex, which is very portable and powerful in DSP, and with the upcoming launch of the ToneX Pedal, which way do you think Fractal will go?
