    buying an axe fx just for djent sounds pretty indulgent

    I wish I could justify buying an Axe Fx.
    Need to find somebody who has one first and actually do a shootout between it and some other crap to see how it handles pedals, and nobody around here owns one.

    He could always get an Axe-FX Standard. They can be had for a little over $1000 these days which really is pretty damn good.

    You don't need pedals, that's kinda the point of the thing.

    I'm talking about how it handles the stuff it simulates. Actually getting to play with those 22 "drive" effects, that sort of thing.

    If you have Dosh for AxFx, then Kemper could be alternative. Ola himself said that he prefers Kemper to axe fx, if that means anything to you. Axe Fx seemed really plastic-ish to me. I can't say for sure, since i haven't ever tried kemper, but it seems awesome.

    Kempers are kinda goofy.

    Normally, if you're going to model something, you model components to the best degree you can, the more of them, the better, and build a cohesive signal chain from that. Every amp sim does it to different degrees of complexity. Guitar Rig is mostly just trying to model "amp head" and "pedal" and "speaker cabinet with a microphone" chunks, which is why it sounds sorta meh but runs wonderfully, since there's not a whole lot of math going on. Revalver and Amplitube try to break it up a bit more. Pods moreso. By the time you get into things like an Axe FX unit, it's trying to model individual components of various individual circuits.

    A KPA, on the other hand, is starting with a couple generic simulations of an amp and a cabinet, and then taking glorified impulse responses like you'd use to build a model of just the cabinet, but using them as the entire basis of your sound, defining some variables in the generic simulation to match the behavior observed during the IR sampling. Sounds like a cool idea, but since it's trying to gauge the performance of multiple components at once, it's more prone to error, and you're essentially just playing one amp model with some automatically generated presets. It's the difference between getting a custom made suit and having a generic one fitted for you.

    Not that anyone's made a fully-modular and fully-tweakable amp sim yet (if only) but in the mean time, I'd rather the one with the greatest degree of tweakery. KPAs make sense if you've got one tone you really like from a few amps and never really do anything other than that and need something to make gigging easier. Which is why Ola likes it.
    it all sounds plastic-ish to me.
    Plastic is delicious, you filthy hippie.

    I've been playing my Sterling Ax-40 a lot lately over my ltd h1001, and when I switch between the two I always forget the h1001 doesn't have a tremolo and it messes me up. I think the next high end guitar I'll get will have a really nice tremolo. But, that probably won't be for a while.

    Very well. Although I tend not to use drive that much except for the odd TS808 sim to tighten up something. All the other effects/pedals are top notch for sure, and highly tweakable.

    Most of the time, if something doesn't quite sound right on the Axe-FX you can fix it with an EQ anyway. There are that many EQs on this thing it's rediculous

    After lusting after an all tube set-up for about a year, I have in the course of a day become dead set on getting an Axe-FX as my next major guitar purchase.

    just got that gross of alice picks from dealextreme

    they're extremely soft, even the heavy .81mm picks are softer than red tortexes. really not a bad thing, I like soft picks, but this is gonna take some getting used to.

    Edited:

    not to mention it's 12 times cheaper than getting the same amount of Jazz IIIs or Tortexes anywhere. I think these might end up being my go to picks for a while

    I own a Taylor 110CE (The cutaway model of that first one with a pre-amp) and it is an absolutely beautiful guitar. Highly recommended.

    The taylors i've messed with are all pretty nice, i kinda like Ovations too because of the round back.

    My dad has an awesome washburn and a couple ovations, not sure of the models

    I really don't like Hacktivist. The first song they posted was nice and groovy and the rapping was an interesting idea, but this song just sounds like complete crap and they all look like massive tools.

    JBLs are pretty much the best
    Dad put them in his new Plush cab.

    I know you guys probably think I'm an idiot, but I feel like making a guitar at school where there is a router. Currently, it'll be alder, with an Ibby neck and a p90 and don't know for what other pickup I should use.

    Edited:

    I'm sketching it now, and need some inspiration for the bottom cutaway.

    Or to be sleeked back like a V on the bottom.
    Somebody's done that before, right? I forget what the thing with the top that's normal and the bottom that slides back and the ass end that looks all goofy is.

    I've done a finish like that before. you just do it the same way you normally would do a glossy finish but do the final sanding (before buffing) with a razor blade instead of steel wool

    I wanna take an Orange amp slam a Spider IV logo on it.

    Become the most hated person of Facepunch... Check.

    No really I think the Orange cabinet would accent the 6505 very well. In my experience the Orange cabs have this nice mid range, but they also sound very deep even if there isn't 50 or 100 watts going through it. I would love to pair one with my Tubeworks.

    Orange cabs are often paired with high-gain metal heads. For some reason it apparently works really well, especially for djent.
