I am kinda toying around with the idea of getting an axe-fx standard or ultra and have a few questions. i know there are a ton of threads on these things, but there's so much stuff that its hard to wade through and i'm hoping somebody can answer these questions pretty easily if I put them all in one place. First of all, are the drives/boosts good? are they as good as normal pedals? better than HD500/M13 drives? Is there a decent, cost effective solution for a controller? That Fractal one is out of the question for me. I don't need anything too crazy, I only need pedalboard style control of effects and expression pedals. I liked the Behringer 1010FCB with my eleven rack - is there anything like that or can you use that with the right Eureka Prom? does it have a good compressor for chicken picking? good subtle delays for gilmour kinda stuff? how are the wahs? is there a good auto wah/q-tron kinda thing for Jerry stuff? Live, I'll be using it with tube amps, so I'll want to bypass the modeling completely - including the cab sims. I'll want to use that stuff for recording and would be using my apogee duet as an interface. Does it make sense for me to get one of these things if those are my intentions? I hesitate to ask this for fear of instigating an 11rack vs axe debate, but -- For people who have owned both the Axe and the 11rack, I really like the Eleven rack's amp sims. I'm never going to use anything high gain, so I don't care at all about high gain stuff. For everything else, will there be a noticeable decline in the realistic feel of the amp models? Whats the biggest difference between the standard and the ultra? Thanks everybody - sorry for all the questions that are, I'm sure, things that have already been asked.
