    ...this should be good. Or, at least, I hope it is.

    I know he does live shows on YT every Sunday. I'm guessing he may do something with it then.

    It usually takes him a minute to produce the fully realized video. I will post the vid (or someone else can if I am slow!) as soon as I see it is out.

    He hinted that he thought doing a tutorial video of recording with it might be cool. He said he likes it (it has knobs) and has only had a little time to mess with it so far. Sounds like he is doing a lot of recording and is very busy.

    He also has a knack for finding/hitting the sweet spot of gear.

    I listened to a lot of the Sunday live broadcast last night.

    I found it interesting that Pete has a Helix and a Kemper that he uses for his home recordings. It sounds like he doesn't have a "real" amp at home. He has toured with an AXE FX a few times, though he still loves amps. He thinks the AX8 is more simple than the AXE FXII and that appeals to him.

    Yep.

    They have a live Friday night channel. I was watching one night and they were all on separate cameras and talking with John Suhr. All of a sudden Dave Friedman gets up and walks off camera and walks into Pete's studio. :lol:

    It is kind of weird since Pete is a Suhr guy, but they seem like they are all friends.

    Whoa that's crazy! That makes sense though because I watched his "how to dial in amps" video and he had a plexi-style marshall turned up to 7-8 with a cab mic'd in another room and I was thinking maybe he has no neighbors!?? That would be screamin' loud!

    I saw that and started messing with my Plexi preset on the AX8 to simulate it. :)
