Re: 23 October Gear Pics

So he is now using the axe-fx ultra and the fractal mfc-101 midi controler.

Where are his other pedals? is he emulating them on the axe-fx or is this just the rig for this kind of performance?

Re: FX processors, what is out there?

I think you would do pretty fine with an Axe-Fx. You could probably be surprised about the amp simulations aswell. On a side note Brick, is this you: http://forumusica.com/user/11842-brick-top/ ? If so, say no more, we have already discussed Axe-Fx... efeito Axe rings any bell? On with the subject,...

Re: FX processors, what is out there?

The G-System has some external loops, it costs only $300 more than a G-Force. As for the Axe FX, if you don´t need the amp modelling, I´d go for an Eventide. If you do need it, the Axe FX is really the best. I would not be the first one saying that the Axe-Fx has great effects, it's not all about a...

Re: It's official, Steve's now on the fractal audio artist l

I was waiting for this to happen, (Vai getting an Axe-FX, not the debate that has come of it...). There's so much you can do with the Axe, it'll be hard to tell what he's going to do with it. Vai was digesting gear manuals back in the day while other guys were getting their rigs set up by Mr. Brads...

Re: It's official, Steve's now on the fractal audio artist l

If you take a look at this picture, I think you will recognize a Legacy II combo and a pedalboard with a Jemini on it. http://yfrog.com/f762ej After all, you can use the Axe-Fx with an amp too. Often times, however, you may wish to connect your Axe-Fx to something other than a full-range device, i....

Re: It's official, Steve's now on the fractal audio artist l

....certainly suggests the possibility of a conflict with his existing deals with Ibanez for pedals and Carvin amps. I don't think that is correct. It's not. Could you tell us a little bit more about that? :D Is that just a "He can use any product he wants despite whatever deal he may have with a c...

Re: It's official, Steve's now on the fractal audio artist l

Using a G-system to midi-control the axe-fx is the oposite of keeping it simple. J yes, it was just a possibility how it could be. I thought he maybe wants to keep the simple effects of the G-System and add the crazy ones (which you usually don´t need too often) with the Axe-FX. But according to th...

Re: It's official, Steve's now on the fractal audio artist l

I don't have any information at all but Steve's quote that "its all he needs" when speaking about an amp simulator certainly suggests the possibility of a conflict with his existing deals with Ibanez for pedals and Carvin amps. I think this is what people are reacting to. If he is just using the ef...

As I understand it those are two very different processors. I believe the Axe-fx processor is designed to work with audio much more efficiently than an i7 "clock for clock".

I might be saying something stupid, I hope I'm not :mrgreen:

Re: Axe-Fx Clean's & Sfx

I'm not sure on this but I think it's been about four years.

If you wonder about the difference in firmware versions it's because there's a new firmware out almost every two months or so

Is the wh-1 worth the difference in money in relation to the wh-4?
