    That's nice. Sounds great with the backing track.

    I'm glad this thread got bumped. I've been meaning to post a follow-up comment.

    HippieTim was right - high-gain tube amps react the same way as the Axe FX with regard to volume knob response.

    That does sound good. You can hear quite a few "real amp characteristics" through that.

    Personally I like tubes in the water and tubes on land. A wave pool is just not the same...

    :)

    Now go try a great cranked Plexi and compare to the Axe-FX. The Plexi will absolutely respond to your volume knob. So will the Axe-FX.

    Tim speaks great wisdom!

    I love my THD Flexi 50 for the way it responds to the guitar's volume knob and touch. Sadly, it rearranges the furniture when I'm running it in its sweet spot.

    A couple of months ago, I captured its speaker cab in an IR and tone matched the Flexi in my Axe-II.

    Last weekend I was noodling around on what I thought was the Plexi Treble patch in the Axe-II, thinking "gawd this is a great sound!" Looked over, and it was my homebrew Flexi patch :D

    You owe it to yourself to try the Jumpered Plexi patch that's in the new-ish version 11 firmware. Pure awesomeness in grit, spank, punch, and the way it cleans up when you roll the volume knob back.

    Yeah, I'm an Axe-Fx II guy. :)
