Alright peeps so a few months back I went with the savage. Now I'm looking into getting an axe fx ii and wanted to use it in the fx loop of my savage and control the savage with the Fractal Audio MFC pedalboard. Problem is that you need this out of date midi converter and bull.... to use that, and now that I'm looking at the invader, I'm seeing a lot of pros to it compared to the Savage (like midi programmability). Alright, so besides that, a seperate EQ for each channel, and apparently each channel is unique. The savages channels are all pretty much based on one voicing with more or less gain. Also there's the built in noise gate which is just kinda cool to have even if it isn't the best. Lastly the cool blue lights are chill. Anyway I'm kinda miffed I didn't get the invader for a few hundred more, especially with the midi capability. Is it worth it to try to eventually sell my savage for one or should I just say screw the savage and go FRFR+AXEFXii? I have a feeling that argument of not sounding like an "amp in the room" is just because people aren't able to understand the unit enough to know to fool around with the cab perameters, like the Low/hi cut, and the Dephaser presets. Cliff seems to really have it figured out. Alright h8ers I'll say it, I'm looking to jazz and I'm looking to dj0nt and if y0u can't handle that then I say gtf0-0-000-00 No regr0ts Edit: I'm planning on getting an Axe Fx ii anyway. I'm preferably looking for people with good personal experience with using both the savage and the invader. Thanks.
