seriously cliff, this FW is a whole new experience. It's never sounded this good, models I never went near are now alive and quickly becoming my favorites. Feels like I have an Axe FX X now.
Yea I was out rehearsing tonight with the AX8 with Quantum v10.1 and I have to say I was missing my II running Ares tones that I've been playing with for the last while. I love v10.1 but, for some reason, I was really craving the Ares/II all night big time heh...seriously cliff, this FW is a whole new experience. It's never sounded this good, models I never went near are now alive and quickly becoming my favorites. Feels like I have an Axe FX X now.
Lately I've been scrolling through the cabs.forgive me for being late to the game, but I just updated my Axe fx and noticed that a bunch of the factory cabs sound like the cab is bypassed. Is this happening for anyone else? Not all cabs sound like this but definitely as i'm scrolling thru, a bunch basically sound like the block is inactive
Just created a preset exactly like this - tweaking for my preferences but just a really great classic rock sound - thanks!!Just wanted to throw out some love for the Friedman Hbec 45 in this update. I'm pairing it with factory cab 55, and it's the big crunchy hard rock sound I've had in my head for years!. I've only got the gain at 4 and it's just perfect. Bass at 2 , mid 8 and treble at 6. Cut some lows in the GEQ and I'm good to go. No need to touch advanced parameters. Can't wait to premier it at rehearsal tomorrow!
I’ve set it up to work best with my humbucker guitars but works with my strats too. For single coils I tend to use the Plexi models with greenbacks ... although spending more time with the Dumble ODS which is really nice with strats.Thanks. You use it with humbuckets or single coils?
It will change the sound if you update. Probably for the better, but that's for you to decide. You could always revert back to q10 if you don't like the sound.Maybe stupid question, but this is new to me.. I have axe fx 2 mk1 quantum 10.01 and naked amps 700 presets, what happend when I put Ares in my axe? Sounds naked amps presets different then... or is it better just keep quantum 10.01.. Is there in Ares something new overdrives/distorsions or effect types? Thanks
