This is going to be a very brief NAD(lol) because I don’t know what I’m doing with the amp yet. It’s my first fractal axe fx of any kind, so it’s much easier and more intuitive than the other ones I heard about. I hesitated with axe fx ultra because its for gear heads who know what their doing, and I passed out he II because by that time I bought a kemper which I sold a while ago. I’m glad I did! This things modeler actually sounds like the amp. IDENTITCAL. Not like it. Not it “definitely captures the character” or any bullshit like that. NOw I know why fractal charges so much and why everyone says they are the best: the are the BEST! I thought kemper was unbeatable Kemper used a very unique tone matching process. They profiler would record the amp in every possible state in many different ways, like you could show the dynamics of how a recto on low volume and turned down is and then in that same profile turn up your volume knob on the guitar and the tone dynamics are translated, making the actual modeling sound alive and not like an effects pedal with a cab sim you know? The Axe Fx II I was told came close to kemper, but not quite as good. My kemper owner friends and all of my trustworthy pro sources told me that I would finally be wrong and FAS would best my kemper. They were right. When I turned on the Mesa, I swear, I thought James Hetfield plugged into the second input , I had to turn to look around lol j/k Anyway, ill post a pic of the LOVELY rig (don’t judge the mess please) WHO ELSE HAS AXE FX III, and who is going to sell their III for the FM3 because the AXE III is so much in it???
