That Badger has a WIDE tonal range depending on where you set the drive AND the master. And it likes pedals! I like the 18 watt Badger on Scene 2 with a tele bridge and a Klon drive (FET) -- wow.
This is accurate, but I will say there were maybe 5 or 6 amps - mostly Modern ones I think (like the Splawn Quickrod Plexi) in there that just sounded perfect/gorgeous as it should with default BMT all at "5", and I couldn't make them sound better in twisting those, so I left them at "5" for the base tone in Scene 1, just dialed in drive. So don't think I skipped them if you run across those!
AustinBuddy, this sounds like a very interesting tone pack. I'm puzzled however, by your use of Axe-FX microphones. I think we're at the point now where the colour imparted by the microphone is part of the capture for all the factory speaker IR's. I'm curious about why you've added mic colouration in the speaker block. Was there a philosophical or technical reason, or did it just "work" from a tonal point of view?The AX8 TonePack version will not have any microphone assignments like the XL or Mark II does
Purely Tonal reasons... i reached for a mic when it made the amp sound better than without! It also demonstrates how much the mic contributes to the amp sound. The MD421 for example does not work on all of them but it can push mids when you need to and chop a little low and high off. I really wanted all these to be "recording ready/sit in a mix well"AustinBuddy, this sounds like a very interesting tone pack. I'm puzzled however, by your use of Axe-FX microphones.

Thanks - Terry.
So glad you love them! I think everyone who has a Fractal should have these; it really demonstrates the amazing variety of tones one can get. I believe in "the democratization of great tone."I've purchased your naked amp pack and played thru some of them I'm absolutely blown away,I haven't been at all happy with my Axe fx till now thanks so much for such a great job.
For my noob question,how would you recommend I setup for a lead patch ?
I've noticed there is a fx loop in your presets could you explain the purpose of this where would I put for example delay,after the cab or after loop
Hmmm... There should be NO change in sound when you add any kind of effect that is OFF. Not sure what is happening for you or why; first I've heard of that happening. This should be an issue across ANY Fractal preset you use if it is happening -- not something related to just these TonePack presets. That said, I don't know what kind of guitar you are using -- do you have heavy output humbuckers?Again, I love all of the patches in this collection. However, something happens that changes the patch sound, when I start adding effects (even without enabling the effect block) to the patches (ex. wah, compressor, delays, volume pedal, etc.). It's almost as if the added blocks by themselves change the patch sound, without being enabled (note: I'm no where near maxing the cpu).
Any idea as to why this happens and what I can do to enable the patch original eq/sound, while adding effects. Also, any advice for using the patches in our own custom patches? Thanks.
Hey Symphx! Many (if not most) of the modern high gain amps are voiced so well to start with, they weren't too hard to dial in great and crushing sounds. But some players like even more bottom, some players like more top fizz, etc.Ok, my interest is peaked, but Im a high gainer, typically no presets or 'others' versions of high gain do much for me. Did you work much with high gain amps or to make average gain amps higher gain? Thanks.
Thanks for the props! The Bonus pack is really just that...a "bonus" -- and was a a labor of love for me recreating iconic classic rock and blues tones. There are some really keepers in there but you need to use the README file to get the settings right on which guitar, volume/tone knob.
