Mind you, I **LOVE** my rig. I just find that since I'm not in a band anymore, an 8 space loaded rack and 6 speakers is a bit of overkill.
The Triaxis is totally my sound, I love it, but with the Axe-FX distortions being based on the Lead 2 triaxis tones, I think I'd be happy with it. Plus from everything I've heard the Axe-FX seems to be a step-up from my G-Force for processing power and flexibility.
I don't need my wireless anymore and probably will part with my Mesa 4x12.
So I'd be running an Axe-FX, Mesa 2:90 and Avatar 2x12. That sounds like a pretty flexible and simple rig for me.
I definitely want to do more direct-line recording, and tho I love my Chameleon for that, I want something more. The Triaxis really doesn't do direct line very well, though I think it's just incredible through the amp and speaker cab.
What do you think? Keep the tube preamp and mic the cab for the album I'm working on, or go Axe-FX and do it all direct-line?
I'm leaning towards the Axe-FX to be honest. With a toddler in the house and the fact I seem to prefer recording at 2 am, it seems like a better idea.
Oh, and I'm never, ever, selling my 2:90
I made that mistake once and regretted it for years.
