Devotion is a jewel in the rough

It's a program that consists of more code than fits into the bible, and of which the musical possibilities would make any vegetarians instantly eat a burger out of sheer joy. It would be quick to use and contains every amp and cab in history. A pedal would be used as a dongle, and you can just modify your tone with footswitches. It has been sent by God/Allah whatever himself, who is greater than the universe itself. The software will be able to run on mobile devices as well in a light version which would work with rotating your screen like in a rollercoaster. The software would be able to digitally reproduce any guitar sound without the need of an actual guitar, which was worked upon by around 1000 Chinese unvoluntaries. It pure awesomness is bigger than the amount of calories that fits in a ~8 ball icecream and would make a super model instantly eat the aforementioned icecream and thus losing her job. It is purely algorithmic, and was made in collaboration with santa himself, who will give a discount on the product for Christmas. It is so simple that even a donkey can use it, and you don't need fingers, a punch of the fist will suffice. The randomize option that will be included will make use of advanced dices and impossible geometric figures.


That is what I got out of it.

^ Yup
The 10000000 also translates to 2048, twice 1024 - which according to Fractal Forums could mean better quality IR's and the possibility to use longer ones for reverbs.

I've been following the G66 countdown purely because I'm loving how cryptic it is. I don't know if this has been commented on before (most probably has, but the FA forums thread is too big for me to bother checking), but if you look at the image URLs for the pictures posted in Countdown 3, they're out of order. Putting them in order, you get the following:

1. Enormous book (library? Original image is here)
2. MP3 of "Beautiful Girls" by Van Halen
3. Statue of al-Khwarizmi, the Latinate form of whose name gives us the word "algorithm" (wiki).
4. Burger (looks like it's from some kind of fast food ad, can't tell what)

5. Universe (universal?)
6. Quick
7. XY (Axes? Access?)
8. Switch/Button

9. Kathleen Turner (Overdrive)
10. Rollercoaster (Loop?)
11. Binary for "Fractal Audio"
[12 doesn't exist. Interestingly, if you enter the URL http://g66.eu/images/stories/news%20...d-3/pic-12.jpg, it automatically redirects to picture #21]

13. HTC Hero (Smartphone?)
14. Angry Birds Axe-FX (App?)
15. Eye (this is cropped from a cartoon of Cliff)
16. Cabs

[17 doesn't exist, nor does it redirect.]
[18 isn't in the Countdown, but is exactly the same picture as 19, albeit without a white border]
19. Father Christmas (presents?)
20. Loads of numbers (FWIW, I think there are 3477 numbers in total)

21. Binary for 2048.
22. Ice cream cone.
[23 doesn't exist, nor does it redirect.]
24. Fist (power?)

25. Path (...Stairway To Heaven, haha. Original image - seems to be from a stock images pack)
26. Dice (66? 12?)
27. Puzzle (illusion? Original is made by someone called Irina Kuznetsova - Irina Kuznetsova’s Impossible World | Mighty Optical Illusions)
28. Donkey

Hmmm. The best I can do is for 5-10: "Universal quick access to switch overdrive + looper" or similar. 13-16 could possibly suggest some kind of smartphone app (with Cliff's eye being a play on "iPhone"?)

Anyway, probably about time I did some work...

EDIT: Damn. Took a while to post this, so I'm a bit behind a few people!

And while nobody is able to make everyone happy, this will make a lot of people happy campers. Wow, just WOW!!!!!!!

G66 - NEW COUNTDOWN 2

Quote:

WHAT IF...?
What would happen if this person were to sit down again right now and develop something new? Now that the amps to be simulated can simply be bought and analyzed at leisure in a lab. With the technology of 2011 and all the experience gained over the years. In these new, optimal conditions. Is it not possible that something might come out of all this that exceeds even our wildest expectations?

Of course, it's just a hypothetical question... (to be continued...)

Countdown 2... - Page 117

Quote:
Now I can spill the beans:
It's an external 1U extension box as mentioned before and the new Ultras will already come with the necessary connector (from the main board bus to a connector in the lid of the unit). Owners of existing Ultras can buy a mod kit with the cable and new lid.
More memory, more (2048 ) User Cab slots that you can name, real knobs for the main modifiers on the front, a second stereo FX Loop, USB (with Axe Edit 1.0), two(!) headphone jacks
If this is fact or not who knows, but it seems to be in line with everything I've read on there today.

hmmm... I don't think so, according to what was already posted here, there is a WHOLE LOT of mystery into this, i guess they wouldn't do that for a simple firmware update... plus, something about starting something new was posted here.

i'm soooo looking forward to this... i guess i'll just try to solve the puzzle

You mean the statement you quoted? IIRC it's not from anyone associated with Fractal so why would you give it any more credit than any other guy rambling on a forum

Given the blue tooth comment he followed it up with he's clearly making shit up for amusement value...

The most credible thing is the "ick, tock" relation to the new Intel chips with an onboard DSP.
I'd be pissed if it was a higher end Ultra+ whatever...not because I'd be jealous or whatever, I got a standard that is very fine for me, but because it's not stuff I'd buy and Cliff made me want to buy something lol. (And I can actually afford it soon.)

A more high end unit would be wasted on me anyway.
