So down the road I definitely want to get an Axe-Fx Ultra, and probably the Fractal Audio pedalboard. I want the flexibility/reliability the Axe-Fx has to offer, I love my mod'd 6505+ and my cab but I'd like to have a simpler setup and MIDI program changes than my 6505+ running the 4 cable method with my Digitech RP1000 with the TS7ovChaos in the pedal loop of the RP1000.
I also want the Axe-Fx for recording, it'd be nice to use that instead of trying to record my 6505+ with impulses or running VST amp sims. The kicker is, I will obviously be using the Axe-Fx for guitar purposes 95% of the time, but I would also want to use it for recording bass too. As far as playing live, the venues around here I don't entirely trust to just run direct to board and rely on the monitors without my own sound playing (especially for practices we don't have a PA so I need a setup I can play and be heard with too), and since I would possibly wanna play bass live too I'd need a setup that would be equally useful for playing guitar AND bass live at gigs as well as practices, and also recording both instruments to my PC.
The obvious answer most people would say is to get the Atomic Amp active reactor cab. My concern being it's only 50W (given that it is tube watts though and not solid-state) that it wouldn't be loud enough for a guitar or bass rig, and the fact that it only has ONE 12" speaker. It sounds like the perfect solution on paper, it's portable, full range, in theory should work equally well for guitar and bass, I just don't know how well it works in practice. I mean, can it really hang in a band practice situation? When you got a 4x12 Mesa cab impulse or 8x10 Ampeg bass cab impulse loaded how well is a single 12" speaker gonna hold up?
Nobody? I realize my posts tend to ramble but...nobody has anything to say at all? Are my threads really that boring?
