My main performance rig is Axe FX II based and utilizes a sizeable Pedaltrain board for my controllers. I bought the Amplifire for smaller venues and rehearsal. Along with the Amplifire, I am using a Midi Moose for preset changes and a Seymour Duncan for easy access to lead boost. The best part of this alternate rig is the power supply-a Pedaltrain Volta. No AC cable necessary! I plug an XLR cable from the Amplifire to the PA and a guitar cable to the Booster, and I'm done! Simplicity at its best!
