  1. Love the new amps and features!!! Was visiting my wife's brother for 2 weeks, plus toured the PRS Guitars factory on the way back to SC, USA! Tackled the upgrade this morning and played around all day just about! Great job, Line 6!

    Gemini 2 will light your @$$ up, won't it? Hehehe. I have had the cops called on me when having a mega volume jam at the house!!! Barely have to get it cooking at a typical gig!
  4. ... I won't be getting rid of my Helix and Helix LT... I had to play one for myself... Hehehe

    oops.... I bought an Axe FX III.... but...

    Yep. Most of my posts with the major players is to share with others what I've had and what I've sold. The key here is that you and I know that we could live with any of the major players for a solution. Most of the time, I tend to have one of one brand and one of the other for a backup/change of pace and one for church and one for my secular rock band. I usually keep them for beyond the return windows unless I get a dud or absolutely hate the product. If I couldn't have 2 or 3 at a time, I'd probably do what some others have done and cycle through them even if it meant a return of one or two. You pretty much pointed out the massive markup for retailers on guitars and music products. It's not my regular practice, but I don't frown on someone else having to do it. I do enough business with all of them to where they more than make up for the losses for returns anyway. LoL! I am a MusiCraKHo...... LoL!!!

    Hard to believe I just saw this! I have been treated well by Kemper, Line 6 and Fractal. Very nice words from DI here! Also, any conflicts in the old parts of the thread were not intended with the original post. I just like multiple toys. Finally got brave enough to sell my backup (Helix LT) to a buddy of mine in another band and just use Helix floor and Axe 3. I don't need triple redundancy ... (***Says a little quick prayer***)... Good to see the usual kind words for a competitor from the Line 6 guys! I'd expect nothing less. Helix value and my attachment to it are why I'll keep one (and use regularly). I prefer Helix in my church gigs due to the all in one package and I don't lose any tone quality in doing so. I've always leaned toward one unit is a rack and external pedal and my other go to digital rig would be an all in one pedal if both were pretty close in tone and horsepower. But kudos again to @Digital_Igloo and all the other Line 6 employees that frequent here and other boards!!! Great products and excellent service with a smile (even when a smile is not necessarily deserved by the customer)!!! You guys rock!!!

    JBL EON615's sound great, too. When I don't use the Gemini 2, I just jack my level up in the sidefill monitors, which are a pair of EON615's on poles. You can buy a pair of B-stock EON615's from ProAudiostar for just over $540 shipped.

    Mission Gemini 2!
  9. 4 snaps, 4 stomps, 3 amp models. 1. Clean 2. Crunch/slight breakup 3. Classic/hard rock/lead 4. Heavy/lead All I did was run through all the other cab models and ended up saving 3 more versions. Didn't even change default Mic models. While I knew this would happen, I've just been in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it..." mode. Plus, I've been piddling with the Axe FX 3 to get it ready for gigging. Needless to say, I'm excited to try out my 3 new versions of Old Faithful at this Saturday's gig! I think it speaks volumes that I've been using the same presets for the most part for around 2 years. LoL!
  10. It's a very flexible layout... and things can easily be replaced/changed/shuffled.
  11. I'd pop a screenshot, but it's basically a Glenn Delaune 3 amp snapshot that I really liked the layout of. Probably copyright problems if I did that publicly. Everything was completely set to my preferences (he used all MkV amp model/channels, I threw an Archon channel in for the heavy/lead 4th snapshot). I think I may have changed the one kicker dirt pedal from the original, but I'm not 100% sure. Here's a nice ASCII stick diagram... LoL!!!!! Snap 1 is CalRyth1 for clean, one of the delays is on and switchable with a stomp. Snap 2 is CalRhyth2 with lower gain and no TS808. I keep the Del off unless I need it for a lead. Snap 3 is CalRhyth2 with higher gain and the TS808. I keep the Del off unless I need it for a lead or something. Snap 4 is ArchLead... and it cranks. Very much! but warm and toasty! I think only one snapshot has a change on an EQ block. 4 stomps are CleanBoost (one of the EQ's), Phaser, Chorus, and Delay. >>>>>>>>>>-----DlxComp------Wah--------DlxPhaser-----------UbiqVibe------------Scrm808-----------CaliRhyth2-----------ArchLead--------->>>>>>>>>>| V | V X>>>>>>>>>---CalRyth1----CabRino------SimpEQ--------SimpDelay----|--------|-------TrinChor-----VintDigDelay----ChamberVrb-------Vol---->>>>>>> | | |------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | | |-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------SimpEQ-----SimpDelay-------SimpDelay---------------------------------------|

    Helix vs AXFX 3, seriously...

    I've got a Helix floor, Helix LT, and a Axe FX III. I have no problem getting great tones out of either brand. I used to own a Kemper a few years ago as well. This is far from my first rodeo with modelers. I will say that two custom built tube amps I kept rarely get fired up for more than 10 minutes before I get tired of them and the pedals and go running back to my magic machines! I'll give Axe III the sheer power and bells and whistles edge. However, nothing more powerful and better sounding than a Helix that fits in one backpack and is an ultra light rig with a single or dual guitar backpack case! I really enjoy having all three units... If you can't get great tone out of any of them, you probably need to take up bass, drums, or keyboards... LoL!!!

    Stay safe

    Get the heck out if those fires get now.......
  16. I tried to patch my organ on her organ patch, but left with a black eye.... aCk!!! P.S. - I've had Glenn's organ patch since it came out many many many moons ago...
  17. glideman

    That's it???

    I would pay for amp models and cabs myself as well... Not complaining, but I'm not above financing the creativity design department...

    New Guitar Day 1 of 4

    I've preferred playing a PRS over a Gibson Les Paul for years, and I'm not a fan boy nor is it over the wood bling. They just about play themselves for me. I hate a LP heel all day long to boot. Hehehe. LP is a great guitar, but just not my favorite.
