    FM3 incoming: how to make the most of my test drive?

    I'm not familiar with your background, but I assume you understand that the QSC (and headphones) isn't necessarily going to sound like an amp and unmiked cab but rather an amp and miked cab through full-range speaker(s) (and headphones)?

    Audio comparisons today are pretty much useless...

    Whether feel is something that needs to be taken into consideration depends on the value a player attributes to it. A player that places a high value on it would be wise to take it into consideration, whereas I see no reason why a player that doesn't would need to. My comment was in response...

    WOW! This new Preamp is the bomb! Tube amp for modelers!!!

    If you go to JK Amplifiers, the video at the bottom of the page showcases some before/after comparisons.

    Audio comparisons today are pretty much useless...

    Well, and some amps (amp models) have a different feel than others. True. There's likely at least some confirmation bias at play. The blind tests I've seen involving several different modelers and real amps tends to indicate that players often have a very difficult time determining which is...

    I replied because (1) this is a forum and (2) I have an opinion about the issue. If you only want opinions that agree with yours, then just say so in the OP.

    It's not a thing to me. I couldn't care less about feel. For me, playing guitar is a means to an end, not an end in itself.

    Mr. Gibbons is an adult and can make his own decisions.

    I really hate the color of a gold top

    It looks like an open casket at a funeral.

    Neural DSP Quad Cortex

    That's where blind testing comes in. I don't have a problem with that opinion, though there are people who hold a contrary view, and I don't think their opinion is any less valid than anyone else's. Of course. That's why I said accuracy isn't necessarily the absolute qualitative measure of...

    Neural DSP Quad Cortex

    Nothing in my post is inconsistent with that point. I don't think anyone is losing sleep. That said, perhaps the 2% that's missing is a characteristic that you and/or others consider so negligible as to be irrelevant; however, assuming someone else actually can hear the difference and...

    Black Sabbath Mob Rules Tone

    Like I said, the main difference between your tone and the original is that yours has a lot more high-end fizz. That's really the main difference. If you want to verify that, simply EQ match the original to your recording and you'll see/hear exactly what I'm talking about. Will it be identical...

    Neural DSP Quad Cortex

    Accuracy may not be the absolute qualitative measure of tonal bliss; however, tube amps are still widely considered the gold standard for myriad guitar players, which is precisely why modeling developers continue to strive toward accurately (and authentically) reproducing their sound. In my...

    Black Sabbath Mob Rules Tone

    You can easily get much closer to the studio recording by using a very steep high cut filter set to around 5.6 kHz. To my ears, the main difference between your version and the original is yours has a lot more fizz.

    I might agree if I heard a proper A/B.

    Neural DSP Quad Cortex

    I'm curious to see how the frequency spectrum of some proper A/B's compare.

    Neural DSP Quad Cortex

    I couldn't hear a difference, but they're not re-amping a DI through the QC and reference amp, either. So far, it sounds really good; however, it's hard to tell just how accurate it is without a proper A/B.

    In my experience, one benefit to including the capability to load third-party IR's is the capacity to combine your favorites with the native speaker(s)/mic positioning functionality of the software(eg. Torpedo Wall of Sound).

    My forte is matching recorded tones, so if you need pointers on matching recordings of your amps, I can help.

    So got fractal fm3 invite

    In my opinion, Tone Matching is one of the most powerful tone-shaping tools in the Axe-Fx III's arsenal, and I find it immensely useful. I've gotten absolutely outstanding results using it. In fact, I've used it to match some of my favorite Kemper profiles. Is it worthwhile to match your amps...

    Why does my guitar sound like crap?

    Your inexperience as a player is likely a big factor. You can describe the tone all day long, but an audio sample of your playing and a clip of the tone you're going for would be infinitely more helpful than a description.

    This is among the worst advice on here

    Most beginners are going to use recorded tones from their favorite songs as a frame of reference, and miked tones are better suited to modelers because that's what they excel at emulating. Given the variety of amps and IR's, there's a far larger palette of tones available with most modelers than...

    Neural DSP Quad Cortex

    I think the jury's still out on the QC's capture quality, but assuming it's not notably better than the Kemper, then I'd generally agree. If the QC's capture quality is superior to profiling to the point of being empirically indistinguishable from the original amp, then it's possible the best...
