I want to say he never used two triaxis with gain at once.I've always been curious about Jame's TriAxis rig.
He always had 4 TriAxises... TriAxi?... in his main rack for years. Two active, two for backup, and a hidden pair of Mesa 5-band EQs in there. Also, one of his TriAxis units was modded, stickers on it say "phase reversed IIC+".
I own a TriAxis and another preamp and have played through them stereo, and I can tell you that the IIC+ channel is out of phase with the other drive channels in that preamp. This tells me that James used the two TriAxis preamps at the same time, either in stereo or blended together, and one of them must have been set to the IIC+ and the other one must have been set to another high gain mode in the preamp. There's no other reason for one of the preamp's IIC+ channels to be modded for phase reversal.
Anybody know how James ran that rig exactly? It's something I've been wondering about on and off for quite a while now.
One Clean, One Crunch, and backup for each
Even when using JC's or Line 6 multi effects rack for clean I think he still blended cleans from triaxis
Without looking it up I recall around 2003 it was Triaxis+Krank
But Shortly after and since then it was Triaxis+Diezel together
I do have to say if you frank Dynamic Voice all the way up- it gets you SAD BUT TRUE
