    Looking at how I use my Mesa Boogie Mini-Rectifier that has four similar switches for each channel, I basically use one switch for each channel live -- so for a possible Fractal AXE/AX8 use it would pretty much map to a similar kind of configuration. Might even be better as I would not need to go over to the amp and switch the channel setting -- rather a preset.

    An amp I would absolutely love to have in the axe is fairly rare, an Alessandro Redbone Coonhound. I got a chance to play my strat through one and it haunts me to this day. Absolutely gorgeous and huge clean tone... Sustained forever. Very cool and unique amp.

    It seems like you could use Amp 1 & Amp 2 in combination with x/y switching to accomplish the same thing using scenes.

    Bad Cat "Lynx 50"

    "The baddest of the bad! This is our no holds barred, hard rock tone machine. When we set out to design the Lynx we wanted to build the best high gain amplifier on the market. We brought everything to the table and all the tricks we've learned over the years.

    Huge and full, but with a note articulation not found at these levels of gain. Saturation and tone is so full that the single notes are fat. Chords are deep and full because we run the power section in Class A to get your harmonics souring in and out of the chords, and single notes at will. There is a complexity and three-dimensional quality to the sound of this amp that separates it from any other high gain amp. The clean channel on the Lynx is much more than an afterthought. Running in Class A brings out all of the shimmer in the highs and ghost harmonics in a clean chording passage. We brought the Bad Cat sound to the Lynx high gain."

    I'd really like to see a Demeter TGP-3. Especially since there are only about 100 of them in existence, and it's unlikely to run across one in the wild.

    Not sure about Sonny Landreth, but Dean DeLeo uses one.
    Dean DeLeo uses one. I believe Mr. Landreth uses a TGA-3, which is the powered version.

    The Gus G Blackstar amp would be killer! From what I hear they are expensive and they only made a limited number. They sound so good on the Firewind album. ADA of course and more METAL amps! Engl and Randall would be cool. Hey, its a wish list so one can dream. Isn't there a Diamond amp from Texas? Anyone play on one of those?

    Yamaha G100 II. circa early 80s - Channel 1. My favorite amp for lush warm cleans. It has a characteristic warm harmonic richness that is unique and beautiful. No better amp for electric 12 string. It has breadth & definition in the low mids I haven't encountered elsewhere. I've found it useful and satisfying for years, which is why I suggest it. Its also an excellent pedal platform. (Channel 2 has a unique OD tone that has limited utility, not nearly as useful as putting a dirt pedal in front of channel 1)

    Mine toured for years with a pedal steel player before I got it 20 some years ago. The stock speakers are decent, but I really like it with an Eminence Tonker or a Fane. Maybe there's FET transistors in the preamp or something unusual about the power transistors, because It has tube like picking dynamics and tone, unlike any other solid state amp I know. A JC120 came and went, I like this much better. Made in Georgia, or at least assembled there. The PCB has every component value printed on it. I replaced the power supply caps which started humming like a beehive after decades of use, deoxed the pots; overall its been a tank.

    I think it would be a rewarding project to model this amp (after the AX8 crush has relaxed) and maybe not too difficult as the schematic is available, and there are perhaps only a few components that haven't been previously modeled: A Fender Twin is somewhat similar, but I feel the G100 II is different and useful enough to warrant consideration.

    How about the Carvin X100b? It is said that Daron Malakian from System of a Down used that amp on their first couple records, sounds real growly. Or how about a Triple Rectifier, idk how much a triple varies from a dual...don't hear about the triple rec nearly as much as the dual

    How many Axe FX III units would it take to replicate that?
