HAPPINESS SHARED IS HAPPINESS DOUBLED
This is obviously what many guitarists who have discovered the Axe-Fx think – they are so impressed and happy with it that they can’t wait to share their discovery with others. That’s why they make such industrious use of the various community platforms and even sometimes found their own. The German Ax-Fx community came about this way.
INVITATION FROM GLAD GUITARISTS
In the last few years there have already been small user meetings all over Europe, organised by like-minded guitarists who wanted to show off their amplification solutions and presets and generally have a good time together. On the German Axe-Fx Forum various members have discussed the idea and meanwhile made it reality.
SOON EVERYONE IN LEIPZIG WILL SPEAK AXE-FX
From 8th to 10th March the German Axe-Fx Community invites Axe-Fx users to the first German Axe Fest in Leipzig. The city has a very special flair and its music club, Tonelli’s, in the middle of the historical city centre, offers the perfect location for a meeting of glad guitarists armed with their Fractal Audio magic boxes.
Friday evening is jam night, while Saturday evening will showcase two bands whose guitarists use the Axe-Fx. Expect some serious Axing into the wee hours here.
TIPS & TRICKS INSTEAD OF TEA FOR TWO
For Saturday morning and afternoon the Axe Fest organisers have some great stuff planned – tips and tricks on every aspect of using the Axe-Fx II and also keeping everything under control with the MFC-101. There’ll also be workshops demonstrating how to capture an IR of your favourite cabinet as well as how easy the Axe-Fx II can clone your tube amp with the help of the Tone Match block.
Alongside other programme highlights that are well worth seeing (and hearing) there is one that will be especially interesting for enthusiasts looking for the ultimate in sound reproduction: a direct shootout of FRFR monitor systems, with the chance to compare them with your own setup.
