Axe-Fx II "Quantum" Rev 5.00 Firmware Released

It wouldn't be surprising to see HOOK Amps sales go through the roof just because of FAS Modeling.
I hope for the Hook guys in IJsselstein, Holland, this will help get their name out and boost the sales of the amp. It's happened in the past also for other amps builders who got their amps added to the Axe FX range of models. I've been playing the Hook amp live since 2008 and never looked for anything else. Beautiful responsive amp with a classic three channel configuration any player can relate to. The amp also has a trick on the clean channel: pull the gain knob out and the whole EQ section of the clean channel is bypassed. So guitar goes straight to the tube power amp. Add a nice chorus in the loop of the amp or in front with some delay and you won't believe your ears how nice clean that sounds.

I'm playing that channel live right here:

Launch FracTool, click the batch setter tab.
Select the amp block, the modeling version parameter, the latest value.
Select a preset range to apply to. Hit the button, it will cycle thru the preset range and set the value and save each preset
Woah. I didn't know FracTool could do this. Thanks for such a great program!

Great Rick!
Soulful and expressive ;-)
I like that very much.

The sound reminds me of Philip Catherine and
sometimes Jan Akkerman.
I think I'll try the Hook with Cliffs tips to set the
tonestack.

Kind regards
Mike

Did anyone else have all their preamp settings reset by this firmware. I had many presets setup for Q5 beta and this new firmware set everything back to Q4, all pre tubes to 12AX7A and no harmonics.

I thought this had been fixed or is this my own personal demon. Fixing all this presets manually is getting so tiresome....

I keep raving about the Hook 1A and I'll stop being so "vocal" about it, but I played on it for about 6 hours last night. Never changed presets (only slight changes to EQ, etc.) the whole time. Usually I'll take a break and play some high gain stuff. It will very likely become my favorite aside from the ODS-100. Cliff, your middle name should have been "the gift that keeps on giving"...lol
