  1. I would have to agree. I am not opposed to someone having an opinion that is subjective as to what "sounds better". Mainly I was referring to the number of axe fx videos I have been seeing posted on here. the other guy stated "I don't have it anymore.. but how can I get this tone" My first thought was if it was so great why did he sell it? I thought it was the OP but I was mistaken and also apologized. I may or may not prefer the sound of a fractal I've never had one. I like the format of this pedal better and hope it is everything I need. So far it's been tricky but I feel it's possible to achieve about any tone out of it with enough tweaking it in but I am sure there are limitations. Unlike the previous modelers it can only get better.
  2. what were your masters set to? Outputs and levels? I noticed that changes things drastically. (outputs mainly speaking) Is it possible your boost is set to multiple parameters? I have accidently assigned various n knobs or buttons to multiple blocks. For example, volume was controlling gain as well.. also.. what Robie61 said.. into PA or amping a cab or?

    Thank you much appreciated. where you place the gate is rather significant change between in front of the amp and in the rear of the chain. Depending on where it's placed it takes some considerable tweaking from one block to the other. At first go at it.. I think I prefer the sound at the end as StruckingFuggle recommended. I'm going to continue to experiment. :)

    Noted. I will try that approach thank you
  5. I'm sorry for the assumption. A lot of people try to get artist tones.. I guess trying to get another modeler tone is fair.

    Actually I just discovered if I change the "multi" out to USB 1/2 and set Level to +5 and it drastically changed everything. recording sounds pretty great I still need to dial in my sound with the new setting but I think it's going to work. This is a demo of "monster" I'm working on. 2 ryhthm tracks, 1 solo track. so far lol https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_DwDsB1ebWEQ21hT0JaYzByUFk

    Guitar Hack's, God's Cab? I'm assuming are all IR's?

    Helix High Gain

    I almost bought those. Instead I went with the Ownhammer Mesa 4x12. I'm not thrilled. I guess I don't get it I add noise gate, wah, amp, then speaker.. (sounds like garbage). Then I split signal with another speaker on the lower chain before merge mixer.. then it FINALLY starts sounding close.. but ... yeah no. I see tons of videos for blues and brown sounds but Line 6 doesn't have any catering to the metal musicians. At least none that I have found. PS. EVERY preset I've downloaded has been a train wreck. I do have experience with these things so I'm not completely digi-illiterate. Hopefully someone can help before my 30 days are up because right now I feel like I'm wasting time when I should be recording. :angry:

    Ok. . I have been working feverishly and losing sleep trying to get my sound. Buy sound I'm talking my Mesa Boogie dual rectifier Half Stack.. previously I have been running and hd500x with a Mesa simulation cut back straight into my Amp with no effects other than wah for my solos. Honestly. . I think I'm pretty close. In Line 6 benefit I think it sounds really close to my live rig. I am 95% sold and that's why I'm posting because I really like this pedal. At times I hear things I don't like. At other times it sounds amazing. I know with all the different parameters and settings one little change can affect my tone hugely. I have tried the low cuts and the high cuz and all of that.. I've added multiple cabs,cab-IR combos, parametric EQ before the amp, and after the amp and on channel B, IR'S free and purchased, dual amps, multiple cabs.. In the mix, without. Everybody talks about cutting the low in the highs excetera excetera. With my 500x I would just do it after I recorded it with Waves plugins High Pass filters and C4 C6 compressors excetera. I would love to think I could get a good sound without all of that out of this unit. Ahhhhggggg! B I am running a Dean explorer with KFK EMG's 81-85 I believe. Sonar Pro.. 24-88 Global EQ Low cut 120.. high cut 5 or 6? I've been reading a lot about this and if I cut the five or so it seems like I'm killing my tone. I've tried compressing. . Which I've never had to do before. I'm sure there's a huge learning curve here to match a real rig. What's your secret for a good metal tone on this. ..thing? This. Mutant guitar amp speaker mic thing in a box. By metal tone I mean Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Slayer... but I am open for suggestions.
  14. Yeah now that I know that it's there I can definitely see where you're coming from. I guess I'm really paranoid after blowing so much money I am freaking out about every little thing. I feel like I'm scrambling to get "the sound" so I can get to recording but it has been a struggle. I'm almost happy lol I appreciate the info.
  15. I guess I can be more careful when editing I didn't realize they were touch sensitive until today. It's cool that should save wear on the buttons I suppose. weird that when I touch them it will switch to the other block and editing mode. But when I press toe switch it just turns off and on without switching to that block.. that behavior was leading me to think something was wrong as well
  16. Roger that.. thank you. I saw that but haven't gotten into all the other features yet. ​ I'm still concentrating on the sound. Honestly I didn't know what it meant and it seems more of an electrical grounding issue. hahaa is there a way to disable it? I think I would rather hit the button.
  17. when adjusting 10 band EQ on floorboard it jumps to delay block. Actually I am editing this post because it is doing it for other blocks as well. For example was just tweaking the amp settings and it jumped over to reverb. EDIT#2. I have now realized it is because my finger is coming in contact with the individual foot switches. Moral of the story.. they are "touch sensitive" to bare skin. Is this common? lol
  18. I'm not sure if this is a bug or I am doing something wrong.. but pretty sure I'm not. I added a gain model to the end of my chain to makeup for the heavy EQ'ing I have to do to get that shrill sound out of the rectifier model. Gain defaults to +12. I set it to +3, save preset. Every time I switch to a different effect and back to gain it's back at +12 db again. Is it not possible to save this parameter?
  19. You don't have to bypass them. ​Try running your amp, then split signal and load IR there, Then put a cab back on the original signal chain after the split. I've gotten some good results like that. plus you can compare your IR's to Line 6's then. ​
  20. Bank 2 has a preset called Djentrified. Not sure if it did at the time of this post. May be a good place to begin.
  21. I've been hearing a lot about Accugroove cabs but going to cost ya
  22. That is just one website there are others just like it that might have artists you are looking for. Pinterest had a lot of them but I was leery of posting images that weren't mine that I've downloaded. People are never going to be real amazed that your tone sounds just like Eric Clapton on the cream album but if you can play like Eric Clapton on the cream album I'm sure you would raise some eyebrows
