    Poweramp thoughts and Orange 2x12 v30

    Hey , I just joined the Fractal family with the adquisition of the FM3, I’m really loving this device so far it’s amazing. I’m playing really often live with a louder prog band, and my background has been always related with tube and analog gear. I think that an FRFR solution it’s not going to...

    Orange Bass Butler (demo/review)

    FM3 used for reverb and interface for this video demo (the last part, with guitar, uses the Herbert Diezel amp from the FM3): There are some well-received bass pedals and preamps on the market, and the Bass Butler by Orange ranks toward the top – and for good reason. If you want your bass tone...

    New Single, New Rig, New Year (That Hopefully Doesn't Suck!)

    The latest single from my Unite The Divide project just dropped. I'm using a rig I created around an Orange amp which I have added to the rig exchange: http://axechange.fractalaudio.com/detail.php?preset=8453 The tune has a real positive vibe/message after a really awful year for most of us:

    Class AB vs Class D

    Hi all, I've been a long time user of the Seymour Duncan Powestage 170 amp but have never quite been satisfied with the way it sounded when compared with my JVM head. I recently purchased an Orange Pedal Baby 100 to try it out and so far, most of the tone characteristics ground that I've been...

    Speaker Impedance Curve measurements

    Here are two of my cabinet SIC measurements in the format Cliff requested. It might be a good place for others to post their measurements too. I did these measurements early 2019, I felt back than that it's a missing thing for the accuracy of the AxFX III. I attach also two measurements of...

    The elusive Jim Root tone

    Hey Folks! For the last year or so I've been trying to get as close as I can to this tone and I just can't seem to get it. The only real amps I've owned for the last 10 or so years have been an AC30 and Twin Reverb so the realm of this tone is a little out of my comfort zone. There's this...

    Hi, folks! Here you have my latest work at Jotun Studio: Orange Viper´s The Beast, from their forthcoming EP Freedom Of Choice. As they make metal mixed with stoner we used an Orange sim to get a powerful but "dirty" sound. I recorded, edited, mixed and mastered the whole EP. I hope you lke it!

    Power amp challenges

    Hi everyone, I have an axeFx 2 with a mesa 2:50 power amp running into a Orange ppc412 cabinet. At low volumes, I get the best sound I could ever hope for but as soon as I turn it up in band setting the sound seems too smooth and doesn't have enough bite / cut. I also find that it sounds...

    2x12 kills a 4x12?

    After releasing Cab Pack 23: USA Citrus 2x12 I've had a few people ask me "what's the difference between the 2x12 versions of the USA and Citrus" and unsurprisingly it's a bit hard to describe by words. I thought I'd show it to you guys as there's no consistancy here at all. To me the USA 2x12...

    UPDATED VERSION Ambient groove electro with Vox guitar tones

    (EDIT: This is an updated version of Inverted Gaze with the bulid up section before the ending re-worked) I'm not really sure how to describe this one but I like it. It's a different sound for me. I guess it's pretty chill but a bit moody and reflective. Started playing around with EZDrummer2...
