What a description. Now I can’t wait to try it lol I hope to see some good tutorials on blending two Amps because I have no idea how to do it hahaMaking a beautifully lush stereo phase/delay patch with two counter-complimenting amp tones, strike up a fat one and lose yourself in the sonic soundscape.
Using two amps with tone biased settings such as one high gain treble dominant tone, the other with a lower gain, bass dominant tone and mix up a thick, clear wall of sound. This can be switched up in so many ways to get a huge variation of sounds.
As others have said, lube-smooth transition from gain to clean.
Lastly, any less restriction or more enhancement on my creativity and playing enjoyment is a win in my book.
Can someone with the knowledge please enlight us in the dark regarding dual amps in parallel vs serial?
Is there a video that shows this? Been thinking about getting a mini EV for volume or preamp gain. Could be super cool with dual amps on the fm9Coopers blending trick with the volume pedal works great to get clean , dirt ,or anything between. 2 amps also great for W/D/W setups.

Now we're talking! I'm all about the kitchen sink presetsBesides all reasons above (which I second), the simplest reason is that you can have 8 amps in one preset as opposed to 4, which is cool because you can have 1 preset to range from jazz to metal and everything in between, but its even more useful because you can load 8 amps - or 8 of the same amp with different settings - for A/B comparison purpose when you're searching for that sound.
Simple. I do not use 2 amps at once. BUT, with 2 amp blocks and channels, you have 8 amps you can use in any scene/preset. That is awesome and the reason why it matters to me.Have always been a single amp guy, but I got on the FM9 waitlist, mainly for the extra switches and pedal inputs.
Tell my why I would want to bother with dual amps/cabs? Back in the amp days, I'd never have done this. Even in the OG AXE-FX/2 I was still using single amps (did we even have a two amp option back then, I don't remember lol)
Y'all do one amp left and the other right, maybe with different effects, for some wide sounds? Or just to get the secret tone you're after?
I recommend not hard panning the amps, and to rather, get a pleasing stereo image that is positionable by a mixing engineer. If they are just slamming the pan left or right, that's a shame.Would you need to pan stereo amps hard left and right or center it to have a proper blend?
I asked a similar question a few days ago regarding cabs due to the fact that some of the venues I play allow for stereo but my sound would be hard panned. Which is fine but I feel like it almost defeats the purpose because one side of the audience will hear one amp and the other side will hear the other amp.
