I should change my thinking. It is more of a "sizzle" and not "fizz".I'm not comfortable with this thread.
Perhaps it's a matter of semantics, but I personally loathe "fizz".
Now, if it's "sizzle", which I will say is present in many of the patches inherent to all things Fractal, then I'm 100% totally okay and accepting - even welcoming - of such. Sizzle rocks. Fizz is, well, no...I don't like it.
Just me :mrgreen
I have played a little trick on you with this clip. One half is the Axe-Fx the other is the actual amp. The controls are set the same.
I think you basically proved a point here. A real amp recorded does have some high end sizzle to it. This is because it's going through a microphone, a preamp, mixing board and to some form of analog to digital converter. .
That's a very good point, but engineers tend to like sizzle probably because of their loss of hearing above 8k. This is not because of the loud volumes, but has more to do with the screaming wives.Not sure that's the reason, it's not as if these things add top end sizzle by themselves. The amp probably does sound like that IRL, it's just when you are in the room with it, it's so stupidly loud you can't hear it.
You can definitely hear it in the room if you point the speaker(s) toward your ears.Not sure that's the reason, it's not as if these things add top end sizzle by themselves.

Yeah, the idea of putting my head up to my AC30 fully cranked scares me! Instant tinnitus!You can definitely hear it in the room if you point the speaker(s) toward your ears.
But please use extreme caution. A 4x12 Marshall cranked up but pointed at knee level can do serious ear damage if you lean down to hear what it sounds like up close.
Semantics this may be - but in the analog world - when mic'ing a cab - it's all about NO fizz, ONLY sizzle. So it does have some relevance in the sonic realm.Semantics..,,everyone is saying the same thing whether they use the term fizz or sizzle or whatever
