Just curious as to how Axe users have their setups configured. Are you using the Axe in a "virtual amp & stompbox" setup? Or separate patches to use within one song? I play in a classic rock cover band as well as a P&W band at church. In the past I've always used a good clean amp with pedals for dirt and FX. I'm configuring my patches loosely on this type setup. The difference with the Axe being that I don't need a dirt /drive pedal(s) to get great mid to higher gain. I just use the right amp sim to get me there. For example, we cover David Lidley's " Mercury Blues". In the past I would use a ZVEX Box of Rock ( or a couple dirt boxes stacked ) into my clean amp to try to get that killer tone he gets. I could get 60-70% of the way there. The *umble amp sims on the Axe are fantastic. I found the preset " That's MISTER dumble" to get 90% of the tone I'm hearing on that cut. My FX are setup in I/A to toggle on/off chorus ,trem, delay, etc. So, I'm stoked! I'll be going through our song lists trying to get close to what those tones are using the Axe. Tom Petty songs are next ( AC-30 , Deluxe, Princeton, tweed ) It's going to take a while, but I know I should be able to get so much closer than what I could before. So- what's your setup? Thanks!
