    Hey guys,
    So i got my axefx ultra, and i have to say its absolutely brilliant, i have barely scratched the surface of what this thing can do. Its the perfect thing for a tweaker like me. But even without tweaking it sounds awesome, because i plugged right in, dialed in a tone in about 5 minutes, and used it to record a clip with no post processing or post eq on the guitars! It just sat perfectly in the mix as it was!
    I cant wait to actually sit down and work on the tones!

    Anyways, here is the clip:
    SoundClick artist: Bulb - Hello! I am Bulb! Enjoy the tunes!

    enjoy!

    All of these clips have been blowing me away, do you think you will be ditching the POD?

    Excellent, congratulations, man!

    You'll have to tell us how close this thing is to tube amps in terms of tone, dynamics, and feel.

    I'm curious, but poor!

    Huge improvement on the Pod tone IMO, sounds awesome.
    I'm picking up one for effects soon, but sounds like it would do awesome for silent recording as well :)

    With the newest firmware Cliff has added an Ampeg SVT model and impulse, and judging from the quality of the other sims you'll probably be able to get quite a badass bass tone :D

    sounds awesome man! Congrats :)

    Uhmm..probably a stupid question, but how do you record with this? The same way as a Pod? Connecting it thru output to line ins into the soundcard?

    On a scale of 1-10, how much better does it sound than your Pod XT?
