    Tom Scholz Tone

    Hello all, like some of you I've been hiding from the Coronavirus in my tone dungeon dialing in some new and old sound on my Axe FX II XL+. A friend asked me to find him a reasonable approximation of The Boston sound. I did some research, watched a few videos, and came up with this. Please...

    Boston Calling. Free D/L and vid demo

    I had hoped to spend some time Tonematching a fairly mint X100 I bought recently on the used market. But I loaded it up with fresh batteries today and it's silent. Ugh. So I decided to turn a negative into a positive and just go for it anyway. The results, accurate or otherwise, are here; video...

I'm using my Axe-Fx II and my custom presets direct. No back-line. Just using the house floor-wedges and side-fills. We are using our...

    Need a recommendation for repair-person in Boston area

    Hi: just bought a used AXE FX II. Love it. Unfortunately the ethernet jack on the unit is broken (it won't lock in - works fine if you hold it in with one hand :)). I assume someone just yanked the cord out at one time and broke the toking mechanism and that this is a simple replacement of the...

    Anyone create a ROCKMAN/BOSTON preset?

    I know the Fx8 can't amp model, but has anyone created a compressed Tom Scholz/Rockman type sound with a Mesa Mark V? The rockman was also used on Hysteria. Love the distortion setting with delay and stereo chorus.

    Moke's Foreplay/Longtime Preset (Q2.04)

    Here is my preset/cab bundle for Boston's Foreplay/Longtime from this thread.... http://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/bostons-foreplay-longtime-quantum-1-02-tone-test.106886/ After you import into your Axe FX, you will prompted to save the two IR's into your user cabs and pick a preset...
