It sounds fine, but the programming isn't very intuitive.  It won't allow you to map presets to a different corresponding MIDI number.  Ex: say you want to hit 2 on your footswitch and it turns on 36 on the DSP128.  Where the Digitech is concerned, 2 selects preset 2 and this CANNOT be changed.  It's automatically mapped 1:1, so if you want a preset to correspond to your button then you have to copy it over to that slot.  The only reason I bought this unit was because my SPX90II crapped out (AGAIN) and I needed a backup reverb!

You think that's bad?  My GAS kicked in and I tracked down an old Roland GP8 AND Yamaha SPX90 at Trading Musician!  Thankfully I have a couple paying gigs coming up soon, so maybe if the crowds are big enough, then shopping spree?

All GAS is bad, it's total over kill.It's just excessive.  I'd be lying if I said I didn't have stuff I don't need.  I am usually good at selling stuff on that is excess, but sometimes it requires a little motivation.  I always  hang onto some stuff for "just incasey's" lol

Haven't been on here awhile. I just moved from Vancouver.bc to Edmonton AB. It's been a crazy few months. Thanks to the stupid hosing prices in Vancouver. We sold and moved into a 3000 plus sqft of living space and an extra condo into rent out from a two bedroom 850 sqft apartment in Vancouver. Waiting for the basement to get some so I can finally have my own jam space. But. I have no friends here haha
Any recent gas people?

Only pickup gas my man, I actually have to give up the gas, it's too much.  I really have everything I need.  Pickups is probably the last frontier, as many guitars I owen in need of complimentary neck pickups.  I'm about to try a gas bought Dimarzio Evolution Neck in one axe and see how I like it. Also bought a Tone Zone to try it in an axe.

Hope to move my self sometime, house has been for sale for over a year now.  Might ened up stuck here since the UK is about to go dow the f**king toilet and house prices with it.

My GAS levels seem to vary often.  I see my gear as one big puzzle, and everything is just a piece of it.  So once I find something I truly like, I really try to keep that and find other pieces.  Right now as of the last few months I'm not completely happy with my speakers/cabs.  I'd love nothing more than to just skip on down to my local guitar shop and purchase a pair of 4x12s, but wow they (Marshall, Mesa, Peavey) are so expensive even used and looking really beat up.  ~1000 USD for a vintage Marshall 4x12 that looks like it was dragged behind a van for an hour is horseshit.  Hell, 1000 USD for a new cab now is horseshit imo.  But hey, each their own I guess.  Your money, your choice.

I should've never gotten rid of my Marshall JCM900 1960A/1960B cabs I bought brand new nearly 20 years ago when the prices were still only 575 USD each.  Stupid "downsizing my rig" ideas I kick myself for....  >:(

Man there are some god cheap cabs about, it's worth buying them and then over time swapping the speakers out for better ones.  That's what I did with my Bugera cabs.  And to be honest the first set of Bugera cabs I got, the stock speakers were actually great and probably should have kept them.

Man check out the Harley Benton cab (Thomann own brand) loaded with Vintage 30's

https://www.thomann.de/gb/4x12_guitar_cabinets.html


That's a good price.  Shipping if free after certain amount as well, dunno about to the U.S though.

Oh I'm not moving country or anything I'm just trying to move somewhere else in the city, somewhere I feel a little safer and have less disturbance at night. I also have a problem neighbour.  So I want to buy a house that is detached as opposed to semi detached.

the construction in my building was so shitty that i could hear upstairs talked. i told my wife lets sell and get the fxxk out of here. made a shit ton of money and it and moved

Man I have really been gassing for an Axe Fx, but I have been trying to save some money so I haven't bought anything for awhile.
Currently I have not been happy with my tone. So since I have a few weeks off I thought I might do some experimentation with my current gear.
I ended up putting my G Force in the Mp1 mod4 mkII fx loop. Using it only for gate and parametric eq. I put my G Major 2 after the Mp1 for all my time based effects and Sonic maximizer after that. Mp1 output at 12:00, switched my Mesa 50/50 to lo power setting and cranked it to 9 with presence at 5. Holy cow what a great thick tone!  :headbanger:
If this continues to sound this good I might have to sell my JMP 1, MP2, and MT200. I also removed 3 pedals from my board.
If not I might have to sell everything but the Mp1 and Mesa so I can afford the Axe Fx.

From someone who's been there, done that and got the T-Shirt....
Since the AxeFXIII is out, the used prices for the II have never been better (buyer friendly). The II will replace all your G-Force, GMaj2 and BBE...and then some. Aside from the amp modelling, the Fx are stellar and the routing options are endless. Hook it up 4cm with your MP-1 and your Boogie poweramp and you'll also have the added bonus of a humongeous IR library for direct recording/FOH.
I enjoy the AFXII either on its own or in 4cm with my MkIV, Triaxis, MP1 or V-Twin....

Latest round of GAS was overkill. Sure, it started innocently enough with an EVH Striped Series.

It went downhill fast.

Charvel San Dimas
EVH 5150 50w el34
Rivera Recording Attenuators
2x Greenbacks
Mission Engineering Genesis H Rack
Boss Katana

All in a two week period. I need to stop

Oops....
Rockron Intellifex
Rocktron Xpression
Voodoo Labs Ground Control.


Okay, I am *done* now!
