After all the shit I talked about djent kids, I have finally joined the Fractal family.
This was the only good picture I took since I'm terrible at using my Lumix G7 still. Both the Fractal and the G7 required university degrees to operate lol.
Been looking to get my feet wet with rack mount effects processors and I don't really have the money to drop on a Helix or AFX III, would the original Axe FX (i.e. Axe FX I, Axe FX Ultra) be worth getting so could get familiar with the whole idea? I intend use them solely for 4 cable method type...
I'm looking to build a home recording studio and weighing up some options.
With a budget of $2000 what's the better option?
1. Axe FX + studio monitors
2. UAD arrow + Neural dsp + studio monitors?
Do I need anything else like a preamp or additional pedals?
It's that time again, please join the fun!
This one has been requested for a while and I honestly think it's going to be very interesting! I'm going to compare my Friedman JJ JR (BE mode) tube amp to the Axe Fx III and the Helix, BLINDLY! So it's up to you guys to guess which one is which. I...
two drive blocks feeding a fairly modded AD200 into 2x Orange 212 IR's (thanks @Guitarjon for that tidbit!). The guitar in this was my PRS SC594 semi-hollow limited.
Here's a Gibson LP standard P90 with one drive block for comparison...
Sorry for the multiples threads, but I don't want to mix different subjects, as things will get more simple! :)
As an 8 strings guitarist I'm gonna buy a Dingwall Combustion 6 strings, tuned in low F# to match my 8 strings guitar tuning BUT for playing djent but also jazz/funk...
I'm ordering my Dingwall Combustion 6 really soon (tomorrow in the evening the payment will be done :D), tuned to low F#0 to match my 8 strings guitar.
I already have an Axe FX 2 XL+, which is awesome for guitars, unlimited source of inspiration, but as I don't have any bass for the...
After posting to the socials that I always have riff ideas but not whole songs, I threw down a whole song :lol:. Didn't spend a ton of time but I really enjoyed the process and I like it. That's what counts, right?

Hey guys! In the middle of recording an album/ep and getting my mix ready.
Honest opinion - is this tone (Axe Ultra) and mix/master adequate for breaking through the mud in your opinion?
Came back after 6 long years to hear some thoughts from some of...
Hey guys! I just recently finished writing/recording a new song of mine.
Check it out! https://soundcloud.com/helloimdavidhaha/temporary
It has an anime-esque vibe to it as my friends describe it haha.
Anyway let me know what you think down below - any critique is welcome. Thank you for...
Been a while since I posted here. It was time to upgrade my aging setup...I've been running a Line 6 POD HD500 (which for the record, I still love, and for what it is, is a fantastic unit) But I've had it for over 8 years and components are beginning to fail on it, power jack...

So this is a topic that has come up many times.
I thought it would be good to talk about this once more to end this whole debate!
It all started when I was recording a progressive metal song with my Axe FX.
It sounded great but since I'm also a huge Helix fan I decided to make another version...
