Okay, 5.01 is just stupid good sounding. I can't believe how much difference that little fix made. Depends on the model to some degree but the Rectos chug and the Marshalls purr and kerannggg. A/B'ing with Q4.xx and it's subtle but obvious. 4.xx goes shhhhzzzzzz while 5.01 goes grrrrrrrrrrr.

I never really liked the Brit JVM models but in 5.01 they're addictive. Pick squeaks and pinch harmonics just jump off the fretboard.
I don't know how you can make it better! I'm so in love with it the way it is now.

Hi Cliff;

Here I am again; a bit off topic from your hint.
I just started the AxeFx and called up the Layout menu.
Then I was wondering, what I had to see ;-)
The block array shows a lot of empty block icons at all places,
which are not filled with a concrete block like amp, cab or something else.

I don't remember exactly (Thank you Axe-Edit ;-), but I'm rather sure,
that in earlier firmware versions, all shunts have been pictured only by a simple line.
Isn't that right?
Or am I wrong?

Best regards
Mike

Oh, I forgot ...
AxeFx II MKII
Firmware 5.00 Release
You can use preset 384 that already has the shunts in place and then save your created preset wherever you want.

lol thumb up !
 
Hi Richard;

What you describe is exactly what I felt.
And I'm very impressed, how it sounds with your Suhr (it's a Suhr, am I right?).
As I already said; A tone like "September Man" from Philip :)
He even often played hollow body's.

And you've got to the heart of it, man!

That's the information I've also expected >> TC Compressor (not exactly TC, but...).
The typical pick attack in that tone.
As I heard the song for the first time, I thought by myself "It can't be only the guitar and the amp ...".

It's (the compressor) a "must have" for that sweet jazzy notes, who are telling sentimentally little storys ...
I even agree with Steve;
Tears are part of this storys ... ;-)

I had a similar tone with a Komet 60 preset and a very light detuning by a pitch transposer.
The amp block in the AxeFx additionally provides a Pick Attack parameter.
So I don't need a separate compressor.
Paired with a '56 Les Paul Gold Top with P90's ...
Sweet sounding ...

But I think, it's time to test the Hook ;-)

CU next time!
I have to hear the video once again ;-)

Mike
Thanks Mike, and good luck testing the Hook! ;-)
