Hey guys, this is my first serious attempt using the Axe Fx II's Tone Match feature, which is part of the new 6.00 firmware update.
My purpose is to replicate the original Metallica's Master Of Puppets album tone, to acheive this I've used a guitar stem from Orion.
My chain is OD 808 - Mesa MarkIIC+ Bright - Tone Match block.
First you hear the original recording, then my Axe Fx II tone match. I've triple-tracked guitars, just like on the original recording.
I think the result is good, the core and fundamental frequencies are almost identical, but the distorted character itself is still very different, and the "amp in the room" factor is missing.
It's still a very cool feature and so much fun to use, good job Fractal!
That's really cool! I think the biggest difference I can hear is the squeak from your pick that isn't in the original. When it matches, does it automatically select an amp block that it thinks is closest, or does it "build" a new amp to match?
