    Man, I've been releasing a lot of music lately. Well here's the grand finale for now: The second part of our latest release Repose/Malaise featuring none other than the Australian genius Plini.

    Without further ado, here's the song in its 4 minutes of glory. I hope you enjoy it.

    Great to hear you making more amazing toooons. Just listened again, and it's just as good this time around.

    Bass tone is perfect.

    What's your general setup these days, anyway?

    I loved it and asked you a few tone questions over on the Fractal forum. Just curious as to what amp/drive/cab IR choices on the Axe you used.

    Oh, I saw it but didn't have the Axe-FX there so I couldn't check. The guitar tone is Fas Lead 1 into 4x12 30W (Ultra) & 4x12 SOLO V12 (RW). I processed it pretty heavily in the DAW though since there were really many annoying mid frequencies. So it's pretty much scooped a lot after Axe-FX (and I probably used a ton of saturation on them like I always do). Also no drive in front of the amp, but I used a trick where I high and lowpass the guitar really heavily before the amp to basically do the same thing that a drive does. Just gives me more parameters to work with.

    For bass guitar I made this killer tone in Axe-FX and then in conjunction I took out the DI-track and used some distortions from Cubase 8. Cubase 8 actually comes with some pretty cool amp/cab sim VST's that I use sometimes if I want something like a guitar lead that's totally different from what I'd make in Axe-FX.

    James, for guitars we used a Blackmachine B6 and JP6 for leads into Axe-FX II.
    Bass was a Dingwall Combustion (the best sounding bass I've heard ever).
    All that went into a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20. For DAW I used Cubase version 8.5 (I think, I can't recall if its already .5 or something else).
    Drums are live recorded here at our place, a lot of mics into the Focusrite Scarlett and a Behringer interface that works as a slave.
    For synths we used a bunch of VST's that include some pretty neat ones that come with Cubase (Retrologue and Halion Sonic SE).

    That answer your question? Ps. I love starting a sentence with the word "James". It's like I was writing a movie script or something.

    I may not be qualified to speak about that, but the only thing I dislike about the track is how the bass doesn't properly fills the space at 0:11. Or at least that's perceived, as at 0:18 it's back on full, and just sudden piano at 0:23.

    Everything beyond that point is absolutely stellar, and I can get behind the raw bass grind at 0:11, it's just a bit too disjointed for my palate to give it an A+ grade. :2c:
