    Oh sorry, that is the GIFT IR that Clark Kent hooked everyone up with. Great sounding IR!

    A crunch knob?!?!?! Yummy!! Also, after upgrading I had to go into my plexi preset and reset the variac setting...it jumped back up to 100% when I upgraded. This is so much fun. Can't wait till Axe-Edit catches up and I can really start playing around. Fractal...you folks are beyond impressive. Thank you.

    I think you can still do 99.9% of what you need via Axe Edit.

    I haven't got past the AC-30TB and the Fuchs ODS. The top end is now all good. Not a trace of shrillness or anything harsh, even on a single coil bridge pickup. This from someone who never met a bridge pickup I didn't hate.

    There's no time like now to learn. It's actually quite easy.

    I also challenge anyone to max the drive and treble knobs on the G3 Tweed Deluxe. Do it with a Les Paul.

    Trust me.

    The Brit Brown is flooring me right now! This is just getting silly how good everything sounds.

    Brit Brown is my personal take on what the ultimate "Brown" plexi should sound like. It's based on a 100W SLP with Arredondo mods and a few little voicing tweaks.

    Really digging the new Rotary block. There's some swirly goodness in there! Rotor length now goes from subtle to "I just barfed up my dinner".

    Yes. That's a fun one. I got stuck for about three hours one day on that. 60's hippie rock in a bottle.

    When Cliff dropped the first beta on us I went to the Tweed Deluxe first. Six and a half hours later I moved on to the Bassman :) So much goodness in there!!!!!!

    I texted Matt about this. It's a perfect amp. You just sealed the deal for my main ballsy live tone. It's a masterpiece, Cliff.
