Next stop... Standing on his front porch screaming at the neighborhood kids to stay off his lawn. Sure is weird when the far end of the bell curve shows up.
Think that was already quoted on his Youtube channel.........Damn I just tried to leave that guy a comment but YouTube says he's reached his comment limit for today. I'm going to try and leave the comment below:
"Check this Axe-Fx II tone out from May 2012 with firmware 6. I know it's not the same song but it sounds $2000 better than yours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8p-jbNTRu4"
Do you mean best option in the digital domain? Certainly not the best option as a sole tone solution, not for my needs. Granted I play low-gain. I love my AXE FX 2 (very grateful) but have no impulse, intention, desire or even thought of ditching amps or effects. If anything I am more interested in my amps and other amps. I find myself scouring CL. Even today while I have beautiful dynamic tones available direct for session work, I still setup amps and pedal boards and run mics 50%. There is just something very right about that for me. Exciting times for all of us.I would posit that almost every single one of us has a long history with the analog world and have made a conscious decision to go with the Axe because it is the best option.
Clark, I have watched and read your post for quite some time now and honestly, you seem like a very bright young guy. Kudos to your tone matching and ir knowledge, we have all learned from your efforts. But..., do you really mean this? Maybe it is just the age difference, (I'm older than you by a good bit I imagine) but Jimi's tone transcends "guitar" tone, anything more or less wouldn't allow the soul of Jimi to be heard. I dare say, just like Stevey a few years ago, if Jimi were to burst on the scene today, even with, ...no especially with, the tone he is famous for, we would be trying to copy it just like we do today. Somethings are bigger than trends and fads, Jimi Hendrix may well be bigger today than He was then. In any event, just my opinion. Peace.... his amp tone would suck in this modern music industry TBH.
God, I would hope not. It's one thing to like the music from a certain time, but to be stuck on the tone and recording quality of an inferior technological period. No.I dare say, just like Stevey a few years ago, if Jimi were to burst on the scene today, even with, ...no especially with, the tone he is famous for, we would be trying to copy it just like we do today.
