Though I've had my AX8 for a while now, the timing coincided with my prog band, Advent, taking an unexpectedly long hiatus from live performance due to the departure of our previous bassist and the time it took to finally find the right player to step in and get things going once...
While I'm still only an AX8 user, I thought I'd share some info on my favorite album of the year so far, "As the Waters Cover the Sea" by the Norwegian band, Umpfel. It's an amazing album and the guitar playing/tones are all really incredible as well--and, as I noticed an Axe-Fx II...
thought you might be interested in this:
I used the AX8 for going direct for the gig and for recording the track live as well. Hope you guys like it. Bogner Ecstasy model used. (on the album I used a real one).
Hey everyone! Having a ton of fun with the new ML Legends IRs; I think they may have managed to dethrone the ML Zilla pack for me as my absolute favorite cab pack.
So I went back and reamped/remixed an old track to hear things in a mix context. Definitely a significantly different vibe than...
Hey everyone! Lurked around for a long time but haven’t ever really posted any proper music of mine, so why not I guess.
SLO 100 for leads, Friedman HBE V1 for rhythm, Hiwatt Jumped for cleans. ML Zilla Flattest D for all three.
Tweaked version of the ML USA Bass Rock preset for bass.
This was the first ever Opeth song I managed to get into, and it's still one of my favourites. I pretty much wanted to record this just so I could try my own take on the middle, clean section, which is fantastic. The outro also proved tons of fun to get right, it's disgustingly heavy...
Hi I wanted to share this ambient preset.
Before I sold my Kemper I tried my best to emulate one of my favorite ambient sounds ( mostly the effects ) with my Fractal Ax8. I usually use this preset with my Kiesel Vader 8 string for two hand tapping and swells.
I leave this here for all of you...
Been a while but here's a (pretty hectic!) solo from my band Prospekt's new album released next week - completely recorded with the almighty Axe FX and mastered by Jens Bogren! :)
Hope you enjoy and thanks for watching!
I have just finished recording my latest tune, which is a hybrid of prog rock and classical music. Featuring fretless guitar and bass, a full orchestra, and a LinnStrument.
All guitar & bass is axe fx, each using far field IRs I captured myself.
It was certainly fun to make. I hope...
Years of lurking, but not really too big on posting here.
My band Vicinity, playing melodic progressive metal, just released our second album, Recurrence, yesterday.
All the guitars are Axe-Fx II, with cab pack 13, and the album was mixed by Christer Andre Cederberg (Anathema & Circus...
Hey guys, made this tone using the Solo 100 Amp and the enhance block really helped a lot. Sometimes I feel the enhance block can be too dramatic, but it worked for this thumping riff. Do you have any tips for this tone?
Let me know what you think!
Hey guys, took me a while to dial in this tone, but I tried making a spanky tone that worked on my extended range guitars. Let me know what you think! Maybe recommend some other amps good for these situations?
I haven't made a post in awhile, but I just finished up a cover of Chon's song titled "Fall" with a friend of mine!
The guitar tone is the Vibrato Verb amp with my american Strat in the 4th pickup position.
I hope you all dig it!
Being a newcomer to FAS gear and having a little over of two months of experience with my AX8 at this point (unfortunately, largely interrupted due to some urgent family medical issues), I thought it might be a good time to reach out to say hello and see if I can find other players...
Hi to everybody!
I was tweaking a Clean Patch that I made and came up with a little idea.
I'm using the Shiver Clean model and a Recto Cab as the "core" sound.
Tons of delay and ambients in the patch, really easy to get lost in that stuff. (Isn't the Axe Fx just amazing? Look where I'm writing...
