    Save and update done ! First beta ever.
    Used fractool to ensure every amp block has modelling set to latest.
    Refreshed definitions.
    Reset via control+i my preset's amp blocks.

    And then I got 10 minutes to try it soundwise XD
    That is clearly sounding better !
    I use dasmetal and the plexi 100 jump mainly for my cover band and am very happy.

    Thanks cliff and fas

    What I'm doing now is to have 'mod' in the name of a preset to tell me I've fiddled with parameters beyond the bass/mid/treb, etc, etc.
    The presets with mod in them...I've got a Notepad file where I list what I changed and to what value.
    Yes, a bit clunky, I know!
    I think maybe sometimes the default Amp parameters can change so I don't find it helpful to copy/paste the Amp block [CPU alllowing], flip the original amp back and forth and then compare it with the copied one, which hasn't been flipped.
    I wish there was a little notepad thingy you could have with each preset in Axe-Edit, a bit like another type of scratchpad!
    A small quibble.
    If this amp flipping is what it takes for a non-XL/XL+ user to stay in the game as regards updates, so be it!
    Cliff has been very generous in allowing us to keep riding along withe latest firmwares, I mean Q6 was SPECTACULAR!
    What a sound, the way the Drive control really opens up the amp, etc.
    And now we're on the beta of Q7!!!

    So I see lots of mentions of a B7K coming, I've been away from the forum for a while, but has there actually been a mention that it's happening? Can't seem to find anything about it.

    I you don´t use the x/y function with two different amps, you can copy the actual amp, reset an recopy your settings.

    Or you use global amps.

    Sometimes is better to work with a reset default amp and tweak new - maybe with this major changes the better idea. You could miss the sound of the new FW.......

    I was playing last night with my strat with the Seymour Duncan stack loaded pickguard and it sounded like I was playing thru a Les Paul. There were these thick, saturated chords coming out of the speaker. Just blew me away. I was playing with the JVM, the CCV, etc., etc. and have been able to get great tones. Love this update.

    Did you switch from your CCV to another
    amp and then back again to reset the amp? I had a similar issue and when I did this it was back to full gain.

    Don't want to alarm anyone, but half of the factory cabs sounds horribly wrong and bad.
    It happened in 6.02 and 6.03, same thing.

    I love the sound of this BETA! The Brit 800 Mod! Woo Hoo!

    FYI, If you take the PresetADay Brit 800 from Day2 of December. Change the amp to a Brit 800 Mod and choose scene 4 (reverb and delay turned on) it is ridiculous!!! :)

    Tx Star Clean isn't clean anymore. Could it be mixed up with Tx Star Lead?

    This amp used to be a clean model (like USA Clean), now its way gained up. I've played Mesa Lonestars before and they have way more headroom on the clean channel than this model does.

    Those amps make a lot of IMD. The real amp does the same thing but you wouldn't normally use a subwoofer with one.

    That amp model wasn't changed. It's still on the to-do list. And it sounds fine here.
