    Well.. I just got my Ernie Ball LUKE back from Music Man. I had the original EMG pickups put back in. (I got it with Bare Knuckles)

    So I have to say.. I think I LOVE EMGs in this LUKE. They are special formulas make for Steve Luk. What I have found is most of the presets that I never liked with my passive coils I now love with the EMGS. Amazing how different guitars sound completely different with Fractal.

    So here is a little something I cooked up this morning just noodling around. This is a Hiwatt clean preset with some chorus thrown in and a TS808 drive pedal.

    This sounds incredible for what it is. Variation on an amp that I just love having the ability to pull up with the AXE FX. The effects are incredible..

    And here is the beauty. Might keep this one around for awhile. She's a custom build not available to the public.

    It's been a while since I've posted in the modelling section but I ended up picking up a new toy recently so I figured I'd stop being lazy and post. Long story short, I've picked up an Atomic Amplifire after downsizing a few amps and have been using it as a recording tool and even as a little jamming amp into a EHX 44 Magnum power amp and a single 1x12 cab. Been really liking it so far actually. Sounds quite convincing in the room, even with a cheapo poweramp like the Magnum. I still use Bias AMP as well but the convenience of the Atomic basically guarantees that it's the thing that I'm using 99 percent of the time :applause:

    Anywho since it's giving me the playing bug again, I ended up recording a few demos last night just to test out how everything would fit in a mix. All the guitars and bass are recorded by me and I used Addictive Drums 2 for backing. Pretty stoked about the tones considering I didn't have to spend much on them to get them where I needed them to be. The clip is a bit on the heavy side but I do have some lower gain clips I am working on as well.

    Recording chain is in the post description:

    Go easy on me. I'm pretty out of practice and I didn't mix it great. :rofl:

    Here's a quick solo using my JTV69 through my Roland Blues Cube Artist. This was recorded at a local jam night. This is not my band, just other jammers.

    About a month ago, I finished building my first Tele from a Warmoth neck and body. I decide to jam along to a backing track from YouTube to hear how it sounds. The tele in the avatar on the song is the one being played.

    The amp model is a Suhr Badger 18 on a Fractal AX8. All the tonal adjustments were made with the volume and tone knobs except for the occasional wah.

    Enjoy!

    Its just practicing but boy o boy does being able to direct record make the experience so much better. Perhaps one of the best benefits I encountered using the AXE FX,

    I kinda like this piece. It's G Mixolydian with my RG570 on neck pickup which is a duncan Custom Custom. Played through a Marshall Plexi preset stock out of the box.

    So I was talking to my buddy Cherrysunburst on the phone yesterday. Somehow we got to talking about how he feels that I have gotten away from the blues and into fussion. While this is partly true because of my current teacher.. It's not entirely true. So this morning I woke up in the blues mood..

    Ibanez RG 570 with a couple of AXE FX presets. Its a Fender clean for the rhythm and a Top Boost with phaser. Both tracks are with the neck pickup on the RG

    I have to say this again. Direct recording with AXE FX is worth the price of entry all by itself

    I put this track together soon after receiving my Helix. Guitars and bass plugged in and recorded direct.
