Thank you !!! It's AWESOME !!
I hate to break it to you but there is absolutely no difference between 5.00 and 5.02 for the Hook models. The only models affected are models with nonzero Preamp Comp and/or Harmonics values.
Is this like the texture of something like an ideal naturally buttered and just flakey and fluffy enough waffle?... its like the sag / spongeyness has gotten firmer and more defined ....
Thanks Ben, that's really kind of you to say.Hi Danny
I dont use any dirt / drive pedals so cant comment there ..... in terms of tone I dont really hear any change either ... but in terms of crunch / dirty low-mids / lower-end tighter / punchier " chugga-chugga " and " palm muting " [ these are techncial musical terms I learnt at the Conservatorium ] it is subtley but noticabley " more real " [ sorry I couldnt resist ] ... its like the sag / spongeyness has gotten firmer and more defined .... I wrote elsewhere it isnt night and day .... but it was very immedialty apparewnt on my presets .... and equally apparent when going between 5.00 <-> 5.02 [ I skipped 5.01 altogethger ].
I think with the Axe - and this applies equally to Kemper and Helix and even the A/Fire - the current generatons of all these units are fantastic and as changes arrive, they are increasingly more subtle as the vast bulk of the heavy lifting in terms of digitizing amp tones is now wel established - they will all continue to "get better " but we are very much approaching the top of the horizon on the exponential cureve ......
The result is now %95 playing and %5 tweaking .... whereas even only 1 - 2 years ago .... it was probably closer to %50 playing and %50 tweaking.
Having said all that .... I reckon I could gig my presets on FW 2 or FW 3 or FW 4 or FW 5 .... and once I was 2 songs into the first set, I wouldnt have a clue which was which ... but I'd still have a smile on my face
Always enjoy your videos and post too Danny ..... great stuff !!!
