Yeah yeah, keep telling that to your self dude....
I think one of the things that could help massively is being able to elect which parameters are displayed on the first page of each block. If you do that, and you can have 10 of them, then you give people the ability to craft their own experience to some extent.
Still not as preferable as having the devs do the hard work for you though!
Aaaand we’re off.
Glad to see Cliff didn't succumb to the Helix hit and is moving forward.
Hope this is a good seller for him.
That was actually the case at least for Axe-Fx Ultra to Axe-Fx 2 when it was released. You would be hard pressed to tell any difference. Several years later there is a big difference of course and the power in the Axe-Fx 3 might facilitate that. I would expect them to tout their superior next gen modeling in the press stuff more if that was the case. Now they just say it builds off the Quantum firmware in Axe 2.
Even then we are probably splitting even more hairs because I can't really think of what more I would want from the Axe-Fx 2 in sound or feel. It responds exactly as I have programmed it to do. I'm sure Cliff will make me eat my words eventually somehow.
If this comes in under $2750 I’ll be shocked and amazed. I was guessing $2899.
The more realer has already started. From the website....
“The power of the Axe-Fx III provides the perfect platform for our state-of-the art amp modeling. Picking up where our Quantum™ modeling left off, our latest modeling is the most expressive, musical, and accurate we’ve ever created.”
Price is $2499
That's my hope aswell. Don't have too much use for a rack unit ATM but hopefully the Axe III will translate to a new AX8.
So much GAS for this but realistically the 2500 + whatever the footswitch and expression will cost put it out of my reach
This reminds of Jay Mitchell's posts way back when the Axe II was announced.
If the Axe I was as real as real, how much more realer is the Axe II? 30% more realer?
Is the Axe III 75% more real than the real thing?
And that will be a good thing for people who would like an Axe FX at a lower price than previously available. Winners all around!
I was never concerned about the "realer" thing, I just wanted it to sound good and I'm pretty sure this thing is going to sound great! Can't wait to try it out.
Not layered. Channels are the same as the existing popular X/Y feature, but more of them and with faster switching.
Both barbeque and salt & vinegar.
Pff, this gets so old...
Wow, being a fractal user that doesn't go to fractal forums, I must say I was pretty damn shocked when I saw this appear on my Facebook feed. I've had my Axe FX II for about 3 years now and not once has it given me any technical problems and 3 years later I'm still scratching the surface of this incredible tone platform....a testament to an incredibly well made product. I can only imagine how good the III will be......am I upgrading? No. Why fix it if it ain't broke?
Thought something was up when they were having the sales over the holiday. This thing looks loaded for bear performance wise. Way too much for my needs though. 2018 Modeling wars , should be fun!
Help my wallet...now to go back and read the thread.
Well where's the fun in that?
