The Hook is still on the to-do list but I don't anticipate it will change much. That amp doesn't use a cathode follower (it uses a mu follower) so the preamp sound won't change much, if at all. It will benefit from the power amp improvements which is already present in the beta.
What's up everyone??!! Brand new here, just got the axe2 xl plus a cpl days ago and man I'm struggling lol. I'm trying to update but can't seem to figure out how convert the syx file I downloaded. Also having the same problem trying to load cabs. I'm using a Mac if that's makes a difference. Any help would be appreciated thanks
I just want to say for the record that the Captain Hook is my new favorite amp and may become a go-to for new band work. Cliff, thanks to you and whoever sent it you. Tone for Dayz.
so much this....I just unpacked a set of new Equator D8s and my first revelation is how amazing a nicely driven Hook 1b sounds thru 'em....I got an especially cool tone blending (from buddys boutique) 4x12 Rumble S 4047 B, and 1x12 Nuclear tone 57c. THIS BETA IS THE BESTA+1. The Hook is among my all-time favorites. It's rich and complex, and is has its own thing going on with the way it overdrives.
Try the 1a but change the tone stack to hook clean 2so much this....I just unpacked a set of new Equator D8s and my first revelation is how amazing a nicely driven Hook 1b sounds thru 'em....I got an especially cool tone blending (from buddys boutique) 4x12 Rumble S 4047 B, and 1x12 Nuclear tone 57c.

Hey boss is there a certain IR you're really liking with the hook? I have your cab pack. I always gravitated towards the blend mics, specifically the EK mixes or whatever they were labeled. Just wondering. thanks man.
A bit more tortured fear in the Crimson one. Due to camouflaged flesh-ripping claws of those smiling as the puppets dance I am sure.
Yes, any Crimson reference gives me happy thoughts; better than dancing even.
But NOT EVEN as happy as new firmware (see - back safely on-topic).
