Ownhammer news for AXE II!

Just got this in email:
Hello Everyone,

I have some exciting updates and information for you all today:

1) In light of Fractal Audio announcing the Axe-Fx II this week, the
SYX packages have now been recategorized as AX1. The new AX2 .syx IR's
are a completely different, proprietary format, and through
collaboration with Fractal Audio I am able to offer these (however,
unfortunately not the AX1 and WAV versions at this time) compiled to
minimum phase alignment so as to be coherently mixable with stock
Axe-Fx II speaker cabinet IR's. More about the AX2 files for those of
you who have AX1 and are planning on buying the new Axe-Fx II further
down in this email in item #5.

2) The Speaker Cabinets F.A.Q. has been slightly reorganized to
accomodate it's growth, and new items have been added that may address
new questions that have arisen from recent events in the various
formats. I still have a few questions myself that I am currently
researching with regard to the WAV packages, so more items will be
added as I have more details.

3) 412-GTR Mills 12K TC30 & Mix-n-Match updates are now available for
AX1, NEB, and WAV formats. To obtain the new files, please log into
the Store section of the site and re-download the files from your
order history in the My Account section.

4) All NEB packages have now been adaptively updated to restructure
the Category 1, 2, 3, and Description terms and are now MASSIVELY
easier to browse through with regard to the new menu system
implemented in a recent Nebula update. In addition to this, I have
given instruction to fleshing out the descriptions of each category in
the Speaker Cabinet F.A.Q. section under 'NEB Format', currently Q/A
#3. A summation of the changes made to the Category terms are:

Category 1 - Went from "OWN" to "GTR"

Category 2 - Went from "GTR" to (cabinet name)

Category 3 - Went from (series type) to (speaker name)

Description - Went from (extended file name) to "OwnHammer (series
name)"

To obtain the new files, please log into the Store section of the site
and re-download the files from your order history in the My Account
section.

5) New AX2 format - For the first 72 hours of its arrival in the
OwnHammer Store, the 'Speaker Cabinets All AX2 Libraries Bundle' will
be priced at 50% off ($25 USD) in what I will be deeming the "NFD (New
Format Day) Sale"! Owners of all 10 current AX1 libraries, whether
purchased in the most recent 'All AX1' bundle or individually over
time, are eligible for an additional 60% off (total cost = $10 USD)
within and ONLY within this time frame. To get in on this deal, during
the 72 hour period you must email in through the Contact portal page
(OwnHammer.com - Contact Us
) with the email address you
log into the Store section with, and request your personalized
discount coupon code. I will look through your account and verify that
you have purchased all of the AX1 libraries, then you will be emailed
back a unique, 1 time, 1 use, discount coupon only good for the new
'All AX2' bundle to be entered at Step 2 of 3 on the site's checkout
process to redeem. This opportunity will not be offered in the future,
so get in on it while you can! Tell a buddy! Tell an enemy? Post in
your favorite forum or one that you hate, but please help get the word
out! At the current time I'm still piecing together when this will go
down, but TENTATIVELY I'm looking at Friday May 27 through Sunday May
29 (two weeks from now). I will send out another Newsletter when I
have the dates confirmed, and another when the sale starts.

6) I have updated the Frequency Discount tiers from the following:

Spend $50.00 or more, get 5% off

Spend $100.00 or more, get 10% off

Spend $150.00 or more, get 15% off

Spend $200.00 or more, get 20% off

Spend $250.00 or more, get 25% off

to the following:

Spend $20.00 or more, get 5% off

Spend $40.00 or more, get 10% off

Spend $60.00 or more, get 15% off

Spend $80.00 or more, get 20% off

Spend $100.00 or more, get 25% off

Once all of this update madness has finally come to a close for the
time being, I will pick back up on new library creations immediately.
It will have been almost 3 months since the last new release, and it's
about time to start cranking out new IR's for everyone!!!

In recent times and most certainly into the next few weeks, I am too
overwhelmed to maintain any kind of presence in the forums. I am
unaware if there are any OwnHammer related questions floating around
that could be answered with this Newsletter and/or the new F.A.Q.
additions, but I would certainly appreciate it if anyone feels like
reitterating this in places that I am currently too busy to visit at
the moment.

As always, if anyone has any questions regarding any of this or
problems downloading the new updates, shoot me a message through the
Contact portal page!

Best Regards,

Kevin

with so many new Ir's including ownhammers and redwirez in the new axe 2
a) Are there any glaring omissions on the axe2
b) Are the "new" ownhammer Irs guaranteed unique and not already included on the axe 2? thanks anyone, Scott? Ownhammer owner?

I can't speak for Kevin/Ownhammer, but it stands to reason that the Ownhammer IRs to be included in the Axe-FX II will also be amongst those in the complete bundles, so some duplication is likely. Kevin, please correct if I'm wrong here.

Regards,
Vic

Hey guys!

Taking a quick break to stop by here for a sec...

It's not my place or my business to say what is or is not in the Axe-Fx II; it's not my information to disclose. However, I will say that if you like the OH IR's or are morbidly curious about them, you'll probably kick yourself if you don't take advantage of this. :)

That isn't marketing speak either, nor is it any discredit to the value of what the stock options are. Those of you who know me a little better than most can vouch that I'm not a swindler or trickster, and this is not an attempt to dupe anyone out of a couple bucks. It's merely an introductory, no rainchecks or extensions offer to give those knowing they're moving to the new system an opportunity to do so for less. Given the amount and usefulness of the content included per price ratio, especially for those already with all the AX1 libraries, I'd have to say it's a no brainer to jump on it with both feet while the opportunity is there. The new frequency discount tier levels in the store makes the prices even less, if only by a buck or two depending on the specifics.

It is what it is, if it's for you or not is only a decision you can make. :)

This is a killer deal! Congrats to Kevin for having some of his product included in the FXII--it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Really interested in the upcoming AXE II bundle. Using Rewirez till now, but the offer by Ownhammer is glittering. Know anybody, what's the differences in sound between Ownhammer & Redwirez IR's are?

You'll have to try them to really compare. Some have commented that they are warmer and fuller. They sound good to me... those that I've used. Some of both vendors are included in the Axe II.

Thank you. I'm going to buy this bundle, when it's availlable. I'm registred in the Ownhammer shop now and hope for an email before the release date.

I went to the ownhammer site and cant really figure it out, for axe 2, frankly its all a bit confusing to a newbie. Also am I correct there is no ability to buy the axe 2 patches yet? I find it insane that both fractal and now ownhammer give these non available offers, that force the consumer to constantly look at the websites for updates in fear of missing opportunities, sorry its just a strange business model

Reread the OP. Kevin is letting you know that you can sign up now for a discount when the AX2 files are released. After you sign up you will be notified when they are available.

Got my discount code and purchased mine.. $10 total (I bought the full AX1 bundle previously).

I think Kevin is emailing these out individually, so maybe don't swamp him with extra emails and give him a bit of time to catch up!
