Hey guys, I wanted to spread the good word of Avid's Eleven Rack. I purchased mine from eBay for around $350 brand new without Pro Tools. I have an extensive career in playing guitar. I am a middle school guitar teacher and professional guitarist. I have played in many bands and have two tours under my belt. I have experimented with many amps and processors. What I like about this unit is that it sounds FANTASTIC when you dial it in. At the moment, I am running a complete rack setup that goes as follows: Douglas 7 string w/ Seymour Duncans (review to come), Furman Power Conditioner, Eleven Rack, Behringer Ultramizer (you gotta try this thing), Mesa Boogie fifty/fifty power amp and finally my Mesa Boogie Recto Slant 4X12. I have NEVER heard a better live sound with my setup. Yes, the ultramizer and the Mesas help out tremendously but the Eleven does a fantastic job of giving me great amps and effects. I love the price of this thing. I would LOVE to have an Axe Fx II. Unfortunately, I will probably NEVER spend over 3 grand for any guitar equipment. I strongly believe that you do NOT have to go bankrupt to get a guitar tone of your dreams and I have proved it. What I don't like. I wish the eleven had pitch-shifting effects, a looper and Avid's support. There is a great (unofficial) community for the Eleven Rack. Tons of us users upload patches for others to use and share. Unfortunately, Avid has only released one expansion pack and that was I think 3-4 years ago. I wish they had more involvement with the Eleven Rack. I also wish the Eleven Rack worked on other DAWs other than Pro Tools. I am a Logic guy so unfortunately, I cannot plug in and record. I would need to purchase a separate interface. However, I'm SURE that this thing rocks in the studio. I absolutely recommend the Eleven Rack to all guitarists. Don't be a fool and spend so much money! You can achieve great tone. Oh and one more thing. This thing can Djent. I get some people asking me. Yes it can. Hope you enjoyed my post and if you own an Eleven Rack, spread the word!
