  1. JBL EON615 Use them as side fill monitors and if I don't carry one of my FRFR amps, I just play through them with ZERO problems! Great sounding speakers that handle bottom end really well, too.
  2. I'll agree 100% here... Not hating on the OP at all... Respectfully, I have owned them all, at one time for a few even... Axe FX II XL+, Axe AX8, Kemper, Helix. I would give Kemper 2nd position on ease of use. Can't speak for Axe III (and yes, I'll be trying one, but not selling my Helix floor and Helix LT). I've owned a crap ton of great tube amps, crappy ones, pedals, digital all-in-one's/modelers... I get compliments on my tone all the time, from other guitarists and musicians. I've listened to old and new recordings, both multi-track and with high dollar cameras over the years. I have the best overall tone I've ever had for a show. Don't get me wrong, I like the Fractal and Kemper stuff, not to mention other brands, but Helix has been great. The more they add amp models and the more I play with it, the more I realize how much in that box I haven't really tapped in to yet. Probably because I haven't been dissatisfied with my presets I'm using to take the time to rebuild them and play that much lately. That's scary for me, because I'm usually tweaking and adding stuff more. Speaks volumes for the Helix, though.

    FRFR speaker !!!

    Line 6 Powercab Plus is shipping from SW today. It will join a Mission Gemini 2 (2x12) and a Xitone MBritt convertible open/closed back (1x12). I may keep all 3, I may sell the least favorite between the Powercab and the Xitone. Interested to see how the Powercab Plus stacks up with the other two.

    FRFR speaker !!!

    FRFR I've owned of note: original Friedman one (wedge-ish), Atomic CLR, several powered PA monitors, including coaxial ones. FRFR I've kept: Mission Gemini 2 (#1 - 2x12 LOUD and sweet), Xitone MBritt convertible open/closed back (1x12, #2/backup, still a great FRFR). FRFR on order: Line 6 Powercab Plus (1x12). Love the tilt back legs. Looking forward to comparing it to the rest.
  5. Still plenty of bars close by here in the Charleston, SC area to play. "Tri-County" area has a lot. All are within 45 minutes or a lot less time. Play at my church, too...
  6. Other than the occasion, loved it! We were in Tyler and Athens. I had to run to Dallas and pick up two of our nephews. Haven't been to Houston since I was a kid around 1977.
  7. ... Wife's father passed away, so left SC for Texas... LOVE LOVE LOVE this update!!!!!!!!!!! Have only scratched the surface!
  8. How funny... i’m Listening to Alice In Chains-Check My Brain whiles’t seeing this post... roflmao!!,
  9. Usually full FRFR mode and adjust it in Helix. Keeps it closer to front of house. Never touched the Gemini 1. I know it's a single 12" coax with a smaller box, but I don't know for sure if they are dead on identical in tone. I just have no trouble with volume and tone and am not 180 degrees different from what's in the Mains. What I use sounds good in both. However, I feel like I have a guitar amp behind/beside me. Really love the super loud jams when at the house, too. I'm able to get what I want tone wise and at loud volumes if necessary. Sure, there's Fletcher-Munson effect, but you get that with your tube amp, too. :P
  10. What's an update?????? aCk!!!! :P :D :blink: :rolleyes:
  11. ... LoL!!! Unless it releases tomorrow or Thursday I won't have to read all about everyone reaching nirvana.... Haha!!!
  12. The Necromonger in me says to go out and buy an Axe FX III as soon as it hits the streets........ after all, the geek squad call is in me...... BUT... The FURIAN in me doesn't want me to............................................................................................ aCk!!! Thbbfftt!!! :P :wacko: :unsure:
  13. Look in the global settings. You can set the Expression pedal settings to "Global" versus per patch, etc.... That will make the whatever is linked to the expression pedal go to the current position level when you change patches.
  14. I did that a couple months ago. Take it to every gig. Use the LT at church gigs. Use Helix floor with LT in the Yukon XL in case of Helix death mid show in the rock band. Church is close enough to the house to run get the backup in 5 minutes... Hehehe
  15. I'm about 300 pounds 6'2" and haven't broken the LT pedal yet.... but we'll see how it goes... Usually only use it for volume or as wah with auto engage from heel if using a 2nd expression pedal.
  16. This freaking ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Almost like having the world available at your feeties!!!!
  17. There's a ton of great sounding stuff in that "Legacy" pack!!!!!!!!!! Really still useful effects and tools! Almost like we got an X3 Live ported in on this update, too... the good parts... LoL!!! But the HD counterparts I guess.
  18. Great freaking update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  19. HOT DOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SYNTH STRING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Church band fun!!! Might even have to use it in the Rock Band, too... heheheeeee... :P NICE update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. Just submitted an application to join the Facebook group!!! :)
  21. Had all 3 at once... Now I have a Helix and have added a Helix LT for a backup...
  22. Wow... sorry it went so bad for ya... I love my Gemini 2... and I've plugged Helix/Kemper/Fractal into a LOT of boxes, including tube power amp/guitar cab...
