I thought I'd share a couple of mixtests I've done with the latest Axe II firmware. I stayed on FW6 for the longest time because I wasn't sold on the later updates but version 9 is absolutely killer. I've even ditched my usual custom impulses and I'm using stock cabs for the first time in ages. Here's the 5150 model (as always) doing some slow heavy riffage, and a clip of my band Periphery's tune Racecar. The rest of the mix is made up of Toontrack Avatar and Metal Machine packs, some Slate CLA samples, and Trilian bass since my basses aren't at home right now.
Sounds pretty good! By the way, it got me thinking of those Andy Timmons patches you made some time ago, with the older Axe-FX. I'd definitely be interested in hearing you have another go at that with the Axe-FX II and latest firmware.
