I am the kind of person who finds a piece of gear and sticks with it for a long time (The last pedal that I bought was a digitech rp250 back in 2008.) After weeks of research on different options between the helix, fm3, boss gt-1000, headrush, etc. I decided on the helix LT because every YouTube...
Hey guys! I recently did this demo of Lance Prenc Axe-Fx pack. It’s an amazing bundle, especially if you’re looking to achieve “Alpha Wolf” type of tone. If you’re looking for some really nasty tones this pack is for you.
I’ll leave the soundcloud link down here so you can check it out and hear...
I‘m searching for a crushing modern metal sound, kinda like the newer Chelsea Grin, Alpha Wolf, Periphery etc. I heard that CG were using a Friedman and a FAS Brootalz for their rhythm sound. I tried the 5150 Block and also a HBE and the sound is okay but I think it could do better...
If that’s the case then I think I have what you’ve been looking for.
I tried to achieve Cabal guitar tone and this is what it’s sounds like.
Here you can find a quick test of tone ( No eq, all guitars are raw):
The first one you hear is a 5150 Red channel and the second one is an Engl Savage...
Jared Dines (youtuber music comeadian) has been doing yearly djent video. Well this year he invited a bunch of people to be in the video with him. I loved Misha part in the video so much I had to do a cover of it. It is basically Skibidi from the band Little Big in Djent form. I used my...
Trying to play haken's new single, it's a really great song.
for this cover I used the simulation of the friedman HBE together with an IR of ML SOUNDLAB, the pack is called ML MEGA USA DJENT. It Sounds sick
New free preset for ax fx II available. the link is in the description of this video.
this time I looked for something with more effects.
let me know if you like it!
to use this preset 100% you need the ML SOUNDLAB "usa bulb" cab pack and insert "misha mix 8" in the cab block
Amp : Friedman HBE
Just wanted to share few quarantine jams with great Eloy Casagrande
Hope you are all fine and healthy!
Gtr sound: 808 + 6160 + OH revolution Mesa v30 ir's
Bass sound: Dark Glass sim mixed with Diezel Herbert + Mesa v30 line
Hey! I just put out a song for a new project. I believe I used the Friedman HBE V1 with the Misha Mix 08 USA Bulb cab from pack 13 for Rhythms and the Jazz 120 for cleans. Also Friedman for leads and the USA Lead + for the atmospheric stuff.
I've been going crazy trying to dial in a tone for this specific band;
I wanted to see if anyone is able to help me out
I just cant get anywhere near it without getting ridiculous amounts of noise coming from everywhere of my guitar
If I cut down the tone I don't get enough of that string...
Ive just released a new single. All guitar tones are AxeFx2 xl.
Heavy prog Djent tones to layered spacey cleans.
Had a lot of fun writing and producing this track.
Let me know your thoughts.
If you haven't yet seen Andrew Huang's show "Four Producers One Sample" you're missing out!
It the last episode Virtual Riot was over and made and awesome track, so awesome I had to make a guitar remix of it :D
here is some new track off of my upcoming EP that is almost finished :)
For the guitars I used my Jackson HT7 into a Hyperluminal Compressor followed by the Precision Drive right into the AxeFxII.
Same goes bass but as a preamp I used the Darkglass Alpha Omega and later sent DI and...
Just played it today after having purchased it, and it sounds SO good. Highly recommend it, I've been hunting V30 IR's online since I bought the axe-fx II alomst, and I've tried so many it's crazy. I've been in contact with Mikko for a long time and we even discussed this exact cab, then...
Hi, I play 8-string guitars. This goes out to all of you who are wondering about how low your speakers can go.
I tune my guitars to drop-e, that E1, the same note played on a bass guitar in normal tuning. you've all probably heard that playing 4-string bass guitar into a guitar speaker/cab at...
Hey guys, I recorded a song I wrote recently and thought I'd share it here. I used the 6160 block model for the rhythm guitars, USA lead for the lead, and the Bulb lead patch for the ambient guitars. For the bass I used the Nolly smack preset. Let me know what you think!
Hi, members of the Axe FX fellowship ! I may need your precious help there.
So I bought a brand new Axe FX 2xl + like 10 months ago… and since then haven’t been able to get a decent high gain tone. I don’t know, maybe my axe fx sounds just how it should and I just don’t like its tone. But for...
I believe it does:
I recorded this song two days after getting the Axe-Fx III with THE BEST IR IN THE WORLD which you'll find for free in this thread: https://forum.fractalaudio.com/threads/the-best-ir-in-the-world-free.137347/
Good buddy Misha sent me "GetGood Drums Modern & Massive" to try...
Hey all, back at it again with some more modern metal music!
In terms of production, this song is similar to the last song except for a couple of things: This one has EQ and Compression on most of the tracks (Drums, Guitars, Bass, Vox, etc.) I've slowly learned how to apply this to make a mix a...
Hey all. I’m relatively new to the forum, but I am an avid, long-time axe fx user.
I’ve finally built up both the skill and courage to record some new music, and i wanted everyone to check it out. If you’re into djent and the new metal scene, this will be right ip your alley.
Shout out to one...
Here is another update on my EP/tone quest :D
For this track I used my Jackson HT7 and the 5150 blue 50W model boosted by the horizon devices precision drive. I used the PD as well for the bass channel of my bass preset. Cab wise I used the Zila IRs from ML Studio for guitars as well...
Hi y'all :) ,
I have been trying to get rid/reduce the harmonics/pick attack when I am doing the legato run on the following clip: https://soundcloud.com/user-468226403 . I am using Friedman HBE . Patch included
Any tips to improve the current preset? I have attached the clip and the preset I...
Hi guys! I have one question,the problem is that any distortion preset sounds really bad in my DAW Cubase LE9 recordings (Axe->USB->PC). I tried with diferent presets but the final result sounds like shit. The clean presets sounds amazing but the high gain presets not. I cant get that "CD...
Finally you can get your hands on my Axe FX II collection of presets!
They are exclusively tone matched based on a range of various artists I've produced throughout the years, like: Bring me the Horizon, In Flames, At the Gates, Architects, Hammerfall, just to name a few.
All patches are...
Currently tuned to F# with bass. Could someone help with good presets for down tunings and for more djenty style sound that doesn't require dual amp that ax8 doesn't support.
Tried the nolly smacky bass but doesn't quite work without dual amp.
This is the exact rhythm/lead preset I currently use with my band, Alive In The Night, both live and in the studio. I have owned my AX8 for about a year and have tweaked this preset multitudinously since joining the Fractal community. Originally molded to fit the sound of my Reverend Sensei Ra...
Made a video with my new Schecter KM-7 guitar.
It's a really killer axe, very solid guitar.
I used the Mesa MKIV amp model paired with an OwnHammer Zilla 2x12 V30 IR from the Heavy Hitters Collection Volume II.
Super cool amp model and great IR!
I'm not really a 'djent' guy but I...
I got my new Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid C-8 in the mail today.
It's a KILLER guitar so I had to make a video of course!
I used the Recto 2 modern red model with a new OwnHammer Heavy Hitters Collection 2x12 Zilla M25 Greenback IR.
The HHC2 will be out very soon.
It may be a heavy...
I have checked some of the other posts, but they are pretty outdated now.So had to create a new one.
I live in an apartment and can't get too loud. My budget is around $200. I was planning to go for athm50x headphones and it is going to be mainly used for recording and...
I have been reading a lot of posts about getting tight bass sound and about recording on this forum. It has been really helpful and just wanted to thanks everyone for their input.
Now onto the issue at hand, I am trying to record with my Axe XL+/ Logic x and output going to my...
One of the main questions we've been receiving even before launch has been "do we need another Mesa Cab Pack?" so me and my good buddy Misha "Bulb" Mansoor are here to tell you that yes we do:
Feel free to ask any questions you may have and remember! Cab Pack 13 will still be one of the best...
Here's another tune from my new www.facebook.com/JvRband project.
For this one I used my 8-string guitar.
Recto red modern amp with a tubescreamer for tightness due to the low notes.
And OwnHammer Recto 412 V70B blended with the famous Orange M25 from the Heavy Hitters Collection...
Okay guys here's the comparison as promised. I might do a video explaining this a bit more but this should pretty much cover it.
On paper, yes these are both the Mesa 4x12 cabinet. Yes they both have the original and best V30 speakers that were made for Mesa and are 70W. That's where the...
Did some writing over the course of today and this is what i came up with. A little rough around the edges and some transitions definitely need work but i'm happy with the end result. Used the Friedman HBE with an Ownhammer Mesa 2x12 FRED IR
Here's a pretty straightforward metal clip I made - just 2 rhythm guitars panned L & R, bass and drums.
Let me know what you guys think!
Guitar Tone is Friedman HBE + FAS Modern I with VERY low input drive and the ML Cab Pack 13!
Bass tone is the SV bass with the Fat Rat OD.
I've been working on some tracks for a friend lately and thought i'd use them to demo some new tones i've been working on. Wrote this one yesterday and tracked it earlier this morning. I used my Mayones Regius 7 w/BKP Juggernauts, reamped all rhythms through my new HBE patch using the...
I absolutely dig the clean tone Aaron marshall uses towards the end of the song Ephemeral starting at 3 minutes and 32 seconds in. I own an AXE FX 2 XL+, I'm rather new at making my own patches. How would I go about getting a clean lead tone, such as the one I explained above.
Hey guys :)
So... I recently bought a new guitar, the Jackson MM HT7 (as the fanboy I am :p) and of course I wanted to test a Periphery song with it! I have to say, the BKP Juggernaughts are very nice pickups, I played Seymour Duncan Nazgul and Sentient before (they are great as well) but the...
All sounds by Axe FX II, Superior Drummer 2, Slate plugins, and Reaper. Used mainly Dual Rectifier and Friedman models, with some FAS Crunch and a couple other amps for cleans. Any constructive criticism is appreciated! :)
I made another playthrough video!
It's a progressive metal (groove/melodic) tune that's played on my Ibanez TAM10 8-string.
That guitar is very nice and very versatile for an 8-string actually.
I used the brand new OwnHammer MAR-CB EVM expansion.
I have to tell you, it was a bit...
I finished this video today.
I got a GoPro last week for my YouTube channel so I'm excited to share this video with you guys.
All the tones are Axe FX of course and the main rhythm tones are Recto 2 mdrn.
If you want to know more about the tones I recommend checking out the...
I mainly did this because I wanted some practice on writing. I just played what came out when I played over the progression.I used my aristides 070 with BKP VHII/ColdSweat pickups. Also used my Mark IV Lead Patch.
I spent 3 months in the USA and this was every other song on the radio and I could always relate to the lyrics so I wanted to pay homage to Twenty One Pilots by creating this cover. :) Also most of my clips are extremely crowded with a lot of stuff so I thought I'd really let FAS-FX Reverb show...
My good buddy Nolly and the guys from Periphery just released GetGood Drums and their first product The Matt Halpern Signature Pack. I was playing around with the pack and it's exactly what I was hoping it'd be. All the snares are incredibly punchy and well tuned. I have to say that I've been...
I haven't been active in this forum for a long time, but I recently tweaked a nice kinda modern metal / djent tone I wanted to share with you :)
The signal chain is nothing special: Gate -> Comp -> Drive -> Gate -> Amp -> Cab -> Filter -> EQ -> Gate
But the thing is (I know this can...
I just uploaded a new video about 8-string guitar tones.
I think this video can also be quite useful if you don't own an 8-string but just desire very tight metal/rock tones.
Some very cool new Ownhammer cabs are previewed here as well.
More videos are coming soon!
I hope you enjoy...
I shot this improvised run-through/chill out with the new Cab Pack 24 - ML Dizzy 4x12 and I thought you'd be interested in hearing how the pack sounds straight out of the box without much effort. :)
Let me know how it sounds! :)
To those who aren't familiar with my recent Cab Packs I've started to include Preset-Cab Bundles into the packs. This time since this is a "based on Diezel" Cab Pack these presets mostly include the Dizzy V4 and Herbie amp sims. I was trying to cover different Diezel tones from brutal metal to...
I just got my first 8-string guitar and it's a Jackson with Juggernauts on it. Holy crap that's a lot of strings! :D I have to say that the pickups are both clear and dark at the same time which is rarely the case. They're kind of balanced no matter where you play on the neck. I love the feel of...
i just released this new cover metal video with amps and effects that i don't habitually used like the thordenhal model or the pitch effect but i must admit that i am really happy with the result. Sometimes it is great to quit our comfort zone ;).
Let me know if you enjoy it guys.
I'm not sure if the hype has caught up everyone so here's a short summary. This already legendary "djentiest IR on the planet" called "Misha Mix 08" was created by Misha Mansoor for Cab Pack 13: USA Bulb 4x12. That's the IR you'll f.ex. hear on the Haunted Shore's Viscera EP:
If you went to...
Hey! I've finally finished my album and it will be launched on 29 of February. All Axe-FX II Original (guitar and bass) and all real drums, no samples ;)
I've used basically the Friedman amp stock patch from quantum 1.06 with a drive boost for pretty much all the rhythm guitars. I've also used...
I wanted to share this track with you, which I recorded with my band Leafscape.
All guitars and bass tones are Axe Fx II, we used my Schecter KM7 and Warwick Rockbass for this Demo. The mix is not perfect at this point, but you´ll get an idea :)
Hope you enjoy, feel free to ask any...
NBD - crazy story, this Ibanez btb406 "deep blue" 35" was first bought new from a guy who found out six strings was too much for him, so he returned it the next day. then it's been in a box like new for 13 years and a few days in the shop from where I bought it. it's basically a 13 year old...
I just released a new video with some friends and as usual the axe fx II sounds incredible, check this out and let me know if you liked.
if you have been naughty, i will share the patches.
The title pretty much sums it up. I just had a quick chat with my good pal Misha Mansoor and the Periphery guys are coming back home from the #bestfriendstour and are starting to work on a new album.
As many of you probably know Misha and Mark used Cab Pack 13 on the newest "Haunted Shores -...
Special thanks to Brock for making all this happen! We hung out and talked about the collaborations, Axe-Fx, creating tones, capturing IR's etc. and thought you guys might find it interesting. It was actually the best 3 hour talks I've ever had but sadly it had to be cut down to a more enjoyable...

In this thread I want to give you an overview on my approach on heavy guitar and bass rythm tones.
Let's start with the guitar (input gate set to your liking!):
First off, I started with a compressor (studio comp) to compress the incoming signal from the guitar. As a rule of thumb...
I just uploaded a full new song on my soundcloud.
It's a kind of progressive, melodic, groove track that I wrote with my 8-string.
The new Orange Ownhammer IR's sound pretty HUGE in this track I must say.
Check it out here if you like:
Hope you enjoy!
