My hat's off to Fractal. Seriously impressive—congrats, Cliff and co.!
It'll let you model an entire warehouse full of gear - all in a single preset?
I'm comparing modelers. The only A/B tests I care about are in my own rig. Clips don't tell me anything.
Doesn't mean I'm not interested in the Axe3. Just sayin....
Let's not get all FAS forumish here
Looks excellent. I'm definitely upgrading when it's released, no question.
And that is a FAQ!
looks pretty cool, want to hear some sounds.
Not to really compare the products, but the build of FAS rack product like this is more the pro level design imo.
I think the crowd at Randy's Roadside Bar and Grill are really going to love the new tones!
Also; I thought my phone would be taking a much-needed notification break after last week's boss explosion. Apparently that's not going to be the case
I turn notifications off, particularly this time of year
For all the helix to fractal comments. I think these companies are pushing each other in a good way for the customers. I think Fractal pushed modeling far ahead originally prompting line 6 to up their game for the Helix. The biggest complaint to FAS units was of course the UI for a lot of people. And now FAS is responding to the helix and trying to improve their UI amongst many other improvements. It's very much a win win for us.
I know, right?!?!
This.right.here. I look at those screen shots of the interface and my eyes just glaze over..... I'm sure it's a monster machine but it doesn't look like it's going to be able to touch the utility and complete user friendliness of the Helix.
To me this is a brilliant product pivot and adaptation to the end of life with the TigerSharc DSPs.
Next generation of modeling starts today.
If Cliff would do a Variax-type deal, I could get interested in his tech again.
Wonder if he'll ever go that route.
That's some impressive power.
So are the keystone processors a new type of tigersharc, or something entirely different?
That's exactly what I did when commissioned to create a score for a modern dance piece that was performed in Italy last year.
I created about 20 presets that sounded nothing like a guitar and used them to record a 20 minute piece that was largely devoid of traditional melody, harmony or rhythm. I can't think of any other "amp" I could have used to create that piece.
Some interesting additions to the editor to help make things simpler -
Axe-Edit: Editor for Mac/PC
The Axe-Fx III would not be complete without Axe-Edit, our award-winning editor suite for Mac and PC. Axe-Edit is now presented in glorious hi-definition that scales cleanly to any size display. Veterans will find it very familiar, but more clean and comfortable. It includes a streamlined new interface with controls for all of the latest features of the Axe-Fx III, plus a convenient new “Quick Build” mode that allows you to build presets easily using drag-and-drop templates. Axe-Manage takes control of Presets and User Cabs, and a new Scene Manager takes charge of scene names and settings. Axe-Edit will be offered for Windows 7/8/10 and Mac OS X 10.7 or newer.
Be cool to edit using my Sony 900 series 65" set lol
