Exciting news! Independent Music, the company who are the dealers of Fractal Audio products (the mighty Axe FX!) have started a dealership here in NZ. And it’s going for a pretty damn decent price of $3199!!
Now if you’ve been living in a hole and REALLY don’t know what an Axe FX is… here’s the blurb:
The Axe-Fx II is an amazing sounding Amp Modeller and Multi-FX unit. The effects are studio quality and world class. You could say that the amp modelling is world class, but there is nothing else in the whole world that even comes close to amp modelling as accurately as the Axe-Fx II. We’ll have to invent a new term… Solar System class? Galaxy class?
There is nothing in this world that compares to it.
The Axe-Fx II contains 70+ amplifiers, 64 cabs and space to add another 50 cabs.
Every effect imaginable including Overdrive, Distortion, Fuzz, Wah, Whammy, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Univibe, Delay, Reverb, Harmonizer, EQ, Compression… etc
Free firmware upgrades. Past upgrades have contained new amplifiers and new effects and they are always free!
Users include Steve Vai and John Petrucci. Artists who have ditched their entire amp/cab rig and are touring using only Axe-Fx IIs include Dweezil Zappa, Megadeath, Guns’N’Roses, Periphery, Animals As Leaders, Dead Letter Circus etc etc
You can run two amps and four cabs simultaneously. The routing is endlessly flexible. Reamping is a breeze. Connect to your recording rig directly via USB and use the Axe-Fx II as an audio interface. Use the Axe-Fx II as a multi-fx in your recordings (it has digital ins, digital outs, balanced audio outs…).
This is a serious piece of gear that will change your musical world forever.
You need one.
Here’s our friend Richie Allan of the Heavy Metal Ninjas doing a few clips with his new Axe FX II – how did he get one? He’s NZ’s FIRST OFFICIAL Fractal endorsee!! How amazing is that?! Congrats to Richie, as well as our resident lesson guru Brandon Reihana who is moving to the Axe FX Ultra – we hope to have a comparison video between the II and the Ultra for you pretty soon!
