    It works for me.. But I run two amps in stereo (one panned hard left, the other hard right) and also output my signal to a bass amp(with an octave, EQ etc.. ) I can't play one amp at a time anymore, it always sounds thin and feels like something is missing. The downside is the blended tone is really only best appreciated when standing in between both cabinets. I was doing it with my Mesa tube amps as well, and realized I didn't want to bring three heavy (and expensive) amps if I play out. Hence why I picked up the Axe FX. And it's also why I could really use the third amp/cab block. :)

    A single Cab block (Input Mode set to Stereo) can be used to independently process up to two IRs for two Amp blocks by panning the two Amp blocks hard left and right.

    Also, don't forget about the two 'IR Player' blocks. Not as powerful as the Cab blocks, but could cover what you need.

    James has an entire clean sound that requires another axe fx with the inputs switched via analog so they can have seamless switching. Add another amp block or 2 and he MIGHT be able to just use 1.

    Awesome video. Thanks for sharing @flying_walrus . Really love Joe's tone. Practicing to become a better player is a lot more fun when you can replicate the gear. I think I need to push more air. One CLR Neo might not be enough.

    Yes! This is the update I’m waiting for! I’m still hoping for 4 amp blocks!

    The plan is to get 3, then start whining about 4. ;)

    But if we just go right to 4 it will be more symmetrical in axe edit ;)

    As someone who's always had a small internal struggle with wanting symmetry, I have to say 3 is a symmetrical value...

    3 can be symmetrical. It is 1 with 1 on either side. Its all in how you look at it.

    The ancient Greeks found aesthetic values related to the number 3... photographers still use that principle as a guiding rule for composition in photography — the rule of thirds.
