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.

Guitar wise you are hearing the direct signal into protools. my voice was captured with my phone.

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....
