Oh cmon not this again. There's just as much variety in high gain if not more than in cleaner tones.The real test should be with clean and overdrive sound comparrison and not full tilt metal as everything sounds the same at that setting
This is the video i showed my buddy when he was still skeptical of Fractal and amp modeling.
Oh yes and even seeing him say those things again brings back the headaches. If you watch a few of Glenn's videos you'll quickly realize that he never likes anything and always gives a strong opinion but what is that opinion worth really? Who is this guy? What has he done in the music industry? This is his band and he's the vocalist:Lol, that specific video has caused many historical headaches on this forum.
I'm not going to give my own opinion. I'm just going to say that if you like the sound in these videos you should definitely trust everything said by Glenn "Fricker" Williams. I appreciate anyone who's capable of making a living in the music industry and do not judge. Personally I go for very different tones than he does so his opinion doesn't really mean much to me. Also I like to concentrate on the positives where as I feel like his whole thing is to concentrate on the negatives.
LOL. If you truly love the heavy dirt, the converse is true. All cleans and light OD sound good... you just have to let the instrument do the heavy lifting. You could remove every clean amp but the Budda, JC120, and some random fender (since all but the Bassman sound the same), say the Deluxe, and you have all the clean a metal guy would ever need.The real test should be with clean and overdrive sound comparrison and not full tilt metal as everything sounds the same at that setting
Wisdom. When I went modeling, I was swayed by hearing people making the tones I wanted to get and they were using modeling gear. The underlying technology is irrelevant. It either is suited to your purpose (tone and feel) or it is not.Lots of A/B-ing vs. real amps and vs. other modellers all over YouTube. At the end of the day, for gear this high end, the tone really is in your hands more than anything else, in my opinion.
This is the video i showed my buddy when he was still skeptical of Fractal and amp modeling. Thats before i changed his world when he got to plug into my XL+ to demo and feel how real it is too!
Here's a comparison between a Mesa Mark IV and a miked cabinet vs Quantum Axe-Fx with the exact same amp settings and an IR (shot with the ML capture method) of that mic-up used for the real sample:
