The fear of having to retweak :lol: . Actually, sometimes I find myself in that exact same position, but once you go in it usually turns out to be nicer in the end. If that little thing called times just wouldn't existCron said:I've read the amp poll thread but im finding it hard to put a handle on what exactly it is that people that play heavy music are missing with 9.2 vs 9.0.
Please enlighten me.
That's been my experience as well. Once I've adapted to a particular set of parameters, the concept of "more accurate" is irrelevant. When the amp sims are made "more accurate" - or "less accurate," it really doesn't matter - the problem is not whether they are "better" or "worse," it's that they are no longer what I dialed in.GM Arts said:Every "amp improvement" release, including both v9.00 and v9.02, has resulted in some of my patches sounding a little better and some sounding a little worse.
My presets tend to evolve over time regardless, so it's difficult to be certain that a firmware revision made them "better" or "worse." I've not yet been tempted to revert to a prior rev., although 9.00 got me closer to that feeling than any prior one. 9.02 required much less alteration of my presets than 9.00, however. When it becomes available, I will experiment with the "wayback knob" on my Marshall presets, but I don't contemplate actually leaving it in the "past."But after minor tweaks over a few weeks, they all sound a lot better than they used to.
Guitarbot said:I am probably off base, but for me...I haven't tried anything beyond 9.0. My set up prior to 9.0 was always bright harsh & the presets I downloaded from others sounded like so high pitched that I couldn't believe people were actually using them. 9.0 did away with that problem for me. Now I have heard that 9.02 brings back crispness, etc & that isn't something that I am currently missing. I am using: Strat>AXE>QSC - HPR Series - HPR122i (with roland vg-8 input to AXE as input 2) all controlled by LF Pro.

A vague, general term used to describe this phenomenon is "opinion". It's a subjective thing.........I'm afraid no one is going to be able to explain it to you in much detail. I know it's a totally shocking thing, but everyone is different, they hear things differently, they feel things differently, they have different preferences, wants, needs, desires............we live in a big wide world filled with opinions that are often going to vary from your own. Some of those crazy opinions might not make sense to you, but you're gonna have to get used to it or you will end up living a frustrated life.
Hope I was able to help. :idea:
VegaBaby said:So...the term 'tweak with your ears' has become a little less important :lol:
I guess what I mean is that where the controls tend to end up for a specific sound looks a lot more like it would on the real counterpart. Before 9.02 the same sound on a real amp and the Axe could end up looking entirely different. Not that that matters, just an observation...InsideOut said:VegaBaby said:So...the term 'tweak with your ears' has become a little less important :lol:
I always tweak with my nose... it's the only way to know if your sound stinks
Hard to explain what the difference on high gain tones is for me, but I'm still tending to like 9 better. 9.02 isn't more brittle, but it seems thinner and less juicy to me. Tweaking highs down and lows up and all over the place has not helped. It just doesn't sound as warm to me. I'm not saying it sounds bad by any means (it IS and axefx after all :lol: ) but I'm looking forward to the flux capacitor knob so I can tell once and for all if it's all in my head.
