I also think people go into it feeling intimidated... that they have to tweak it for hours to sound good, that it's difficult to use, not intuitive, etc. because of weird stuff they read here.Just make sure that you at least read the wiki and go the fractal forums for help getting up to speed. A very good community and a wealth of resources are available and everyone is more than happy to help you with any questions you have.
I think that the biggest mistake people make is that they dive right in with their eyes shut and expect to be able to navigate the system from day one. It's extremely intuitive once you get a little time on it and I can't imagine a better layout, but I will admit that the first day was pretty daunting on the Ultra. Luckily the II is very simllar so there wasn't that same learning curve.
Really, over $2k piece of gear and no tracking... Should have demanded better service than that, I would have required UPS full insurance, adult signature required, whether I was buyer or seller.pcauchi said:Unit shipped on 1/30 and still isn't here (Granted it was coming from LA to NY). Shipped using an unknown, non-trackable USPS service with a tracking/receipt number that doesn't show any shipping information or even that it is a valid number. When do I start to worry?
Parcel post??? I sure hope you didn't pay for shipping, parcel post is ridiculous and I don't think you can insure anything using parcel post. I had a guy send me a guitar parcel post once... 3 weeks from California to Delaware.pcauchi said:Just got it. 13 days since it was shipped. The guy sent it Parcel Post. I didn't even think that was an option anymore, lol. Anyway, I got it and its in one piece. I only had a few minutes to spend with it but some of the sounds coming out of that thing are really incredible. Axe Edit is really incredible as well. Makes things MUCH faster.
