    I have said it before but it bears repeating. “Once you start playing fractal you need to stop and eat or you’ll die“

    Just running through AB's updated amp pack for 10'00 on my AX8

    GF keeps asking mentioning films I might be interested in watching

    Stock answer has been "Nope, not interested"

    Dont think it's going down well, but I couldn't care less as enjoying playing too much!

    Someone came up with the term 'guitar widow'. Don't let it get that far ;)

    That's OK. Beats the hell out of 'video game widow'. It's art in the making.

    Incidentally everybody, all i'm hearing in ii vs iii (amp to amp) demos is a tiny bit more gain and top end in the iii. Does that sum it up pretty well in person as well, or are there other factors in difference between ii and iii tone performance?

    I said it in another thread: you can't judge it by just audio... You need to play it and feel the response, too.

    There's more than added gain and top end. You can dial in those things on either platform.

    The character of the gain has changed. You can better hear individual strings in a chord. There's more dynamics, even on clean tones. And there are other changes that I can't quite put my finger on.

    Q10 has done a lot to close the gap, but the gap is still there.

    Oh damn, that explains a lot for me. With the 2, I was constantly dialing down my gain so I could actually hear the chords articulate, but with the 3, I’ve been cranking the gain, but my chords sound really clear anyway. And here I thought I was maybe playing better or something.
