My confirmation came in, and I am short. Anyone wanna buy some guitars? An ME 25th and a private stock Orange Mist with a 5909/5310 combo...
 
I know, I know... haha, believe me, I know. I am thinking about it EVERY day, I am so tempted to do that.
I'm so sick of this Kempers Reverb, I just want to sell my Kemper and Focusrite interface, be done with it and get back to Fractal.
Knowing what I know now having owned both, I would warn others do NOT buy a Kemper unless you are SURE you are gonna have a way to get real good Reverb if reverb is important to you. After almost 2 years owning the Kemper and hoping they would update their Reverbs, they never did, and theres still no sign they ever will, so I got the Fractal FX8 but could not get it to work well with the Kemper for a good sound, so man I'm so frustrated at this point spending the extra $1,000 to get it ALL in one box again is tempting me very much.

I should also probably add to that to my ears Reverb is one of the most important elements of recorded tone, and I don't like to add it after the track has been recorded, I need to hear it as I'm playing/tracking.
You know how some people have ears like Eric Johnson and obsess over pickups or whatever particular thing a person may obsess over, well my quest has always been getting the holy grail of Reverb, and to me that is reverb quality of Bricasti.

I don't know if Fractal is as good as Bricasti with the Axe3... but I know my old Axe 2 XL got me close enough.

After reading your post here I can't, in good conscience, recommend you pay the extra money to skip the line. Please disregard my suggestion.

It seems things are starting to move much more quickly. In just the last three or four days they have moved close to 6 hours through the list. There were a huge amount of people that signed up for the waitlist right away, and that starts to taper off apparently as you get later on 1/29. I would suspect this will be the case for the waitlist from here on out, with pockets of slowness potentially here and there but generally moving much faster.
Thank you!

No massive learning curve. You start with the first preset when you turn it on. You click down on the big knob to look at your blocks. You arrow over to the drive and turn it on. You go over to the delay and turn it on. You come back to the forum and try to find the words. Easy

Well that seems easy enough! Much thanks! I was always under the impression that I will be spending years learning how to use this great piece of gear and thus avoided it. I could wait no longer. I've had a couple of Kemper units when they first came out and decided that I didn't like them. I tried a Helix last year and used it for FX only and it was nice and and easy to use unit. However, each and every time I hear something done on the AxeFX, it always gives me that impression that it really does sound in another league.

So....ordered and I got the tracking number already. Can't wait!

There is still a big learning curve... ;)
