    Here a test video shot last night compering a Fractal amp to its real counterpart. Hope you enjoy.

    Preset included!

    Well done, mon ami. I could hear a little difference in some settings. In some, the one amp sounded a little duller or muffled, or less open. NOW, LOL, after you showed which was which at the end, I can extrapolate that the actual amp had that duller, muffled or less open tone sometimes. Ergo, I know I liked the AXE's tone better through the video. Some of the difference I did hear was sounding a little more open and complex, with the actual Suhr sounding a little muffled or duller at times. Recorded volume was a little part of that. Seems like the Suhr was recorded a little lower in volume than the AXE.

    Excellent Nico.. Proving once again that the flexibility and utterly massive collection of amps inside the Fractal (and other units) makes it a no contest. This is something we have been saying for over a year.... and your demo certainly is not a surprise to any of us here.

    Thanks guys. In the room i could not hear the differences, evident now. I was monitoring considerably loud.

    Nico, is the video sound recorded direct or is that through monitors in the room?

    Great demo, well done. :thumb:

    I love the Badger, real or virtual. I was playing through the 30 just this AM.

    Great stuff Nico! Really shows off the power of modeling and how that long elusive divide has been bridged . I'll add it also shows off just how effective the Suhr reactive load is at retaining the tone and dynamics of a cranked amp. I run my RL pretty much the way you do into the fx loop on my Helix with a Suhr Corso or a Dual Terror and use IR's , sometimes i blend the tube amp through the RL with a modeled amp , works really well. Nice job on the video!

    Thanks for the reply Nico. :thumb:

    I heard Highway to Hell on the radio and was thinking how I was nailing the Angus's lead tone with the AX8 earlier today.

    Great stuff. I am curious about the neck too? I know I played a couple of Teles with the all rosewood necks. Almost bought one....
