I found the AC30 type amps had way more gain, but I found the 5150 fine.
if some of you have time to check this I'd appreciate it:
With this beta the speaker compression meter on my axe is not working, effect is audible, though no gain reduction showing. Is this my machine or can anyone replicate this?
I have an axe fx mark II.
Thank you in advance, enjoy your weekend!
correct me if I'm wrong, but the controls on the Axe are different because they start at 0, not 1. there's an offset. so 3 on the real amp would probably be somewhere around where you're describing. someone posted a comparison chart at one timeFor the amps I'm familiar with (especially the ones I still own and had the chance to record them and A/B them with their digital counterparts), quantum was already on the hot side. Ares takes that a step further. To give you a real life example, if I set the gain at 3 on my ac30tb hw2x (iirc that's the same one modeled in the axe), in order to match the gain on quantum I have to set the gain at 2.2-2.3, with ares below 1.7 and it still sounds crunchier.
Not saying its a bug, but since it affects pretty much all the amp models I use, I'd rather wait for an official reply before updating and fixing every single preset!

This incorporates some of the modeling improvements from the III.

Thanks REX I just want the last most Stable AXE Update for the AXE FX 2 XL + since It will be quite a while before thinking about AXE FX 3
Thanks Chris for the LInk
Yes I had to do this as wellAs I’m gigging regularly I had to stay on 10.01 due to the increased gain in some models. Still waiting for a word from The Man Himself if the Ares gain corresponds better to the real amps - in which case I would start adapting my presets - or if the final version will be different.
For Ac30 amps, and possible others, check tube bias. On mine, it was all the way up- it wasn't before Q11. Turning the bias down reduced gain, and reduced some of the grain and 'fizz' people have mentioned.
Sorry, I can't remember whether it was pre or power amp bias. It was pretty obvious, turned all the way up to 10.
